They’ll Pretty Much Spike Anything Here

There’s a new lounge with a coffee and tea bar at the Betsy. It’s called Conservatory. Careful, though, things could get a little... fun. The coffee has whiskey in it, the tea has rum in it, and the empanadas have foie gras in them. That last one’s more delicious than fun. Still.

Friday
Martini Contest. You’re Judging.
JUDGMENT DAY

Martini Contest. You’re Judging.

Here’s a thing where you go to Martini Bar at the Raleigh, sip up to four competing whiskey martinis at a “shake-off” and vote on your favorite. Will it be the Green Tea Highball? The Eastern Bouquet with whiskey and elderflower? Yeah, the winner’s probably not the point.

SOMETHING BLUE

We’ve Got a Blue Ribbon Now. It’s Got a Poolside Terrace.

If you were swept up in February’s Boat Show/SOBEWFF/Valentine’s Day antics, you may have missed the opening of Blue Ribbon by way of NYC, Vegas and LA. And, in turn, missed that fried chicken in the dining room, oxtail fried rice under the poolside canopy and uni at the sushi bar. But... we’re good now, right?

Let’s All Go See Some Weird Movies and Then Go to Not-Weird Parties

Movies about sex and social media. Movies about Hulk Hogan. Movies about one of the guys from Deep Dish. Those are but a few parts of the Miami Film Festival. Then there are the opening parties with champagne. Parties with directors. Parties at the Standard. This festival has a lot of parties.

No, We Didn’t Forget the Pool Party

Here comes a recurring, Burning Man–inspired pool party at the Confidante. You basically dress in ways you might not normally dress, then lounge around and drink poolside drinks with other people who are doing the same thing. We’re only telling you this for your own good.

Sundays through Nov 26, 11am-11pm, no cover, SPF Pool & Beach House at The Confidante, 4041 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-424-1234, RSVP here

On a typical Wednesday, Ginger Harris is likely seeking reposado tequila, squeezing her way to the front of a concert or jumping on the back of an Indian motorcycle. That’s just Wednesdays, though.
