Rampant Cocktail Experiments Happen Here

Welcome to Sorso at Scarpetta, a pop-up bar/lab where you get to drink cocktails that were infused in a cold brew drip tower. Take the True Bleau, for example, with its gin, grapefruit and pea-flower-infused ice cubes. That’ll be there. So will other drinks. It’s just how bars work.

Pop-Up Dinners in a Historic Fire Station. Sure, We’ll Elaborate...

What a shame. Firehouse Mrkt, the new restaurant and marketplace in an old firehouse, isn’t opening until September. But... hang on. Turns out, there’s a 14-course dinner series happening there with chefs from Copper 29 and TriCiclo in Spain serving things like steak tartare, shiso prawns and paired wines. So, never mind.

All Miami Everything, Right Down to the Alligator Wrestler

What do a hurricane surfer, the manager at Joe’s Stone Crab, an alligator wrestler and a quinceañera dressmaker have in common? Absolutely nothing, other than the fact that they’ll all be part of CultureFest 305, where all things Miami will be celebrated. Expect Haitian drum circles, too. Miami being Miami.

BREAK DANCE

Just Your Average Sunday Morning Dance Party

Sleeping in on the weekend. That’s fun. So is waking up, heading to a beachfront terrace at Fontainebleau, starting the day with a one-hour yoga session, then dancing for a solid two hours to a DJ. Don’t worry, there’s gratis coffee and breakfast, too. You looked worried, is all.

DOUBLE DOWN

A Tale of Two Brunches

At Ariete: Take the Danish all-things-comfort concept called hygge, apply it to brunch, and you get things like grits, carrot cake waffles and cheddar biscuits.
At Bazaar Mar by José Andrés: Take your love of bottomless champagne and mix it with king crab, oysters and caviar.
At home: Take a nap.

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.
