Just a Very Long, Very Late Happy Hour at Ricky’s

Life needs longer happy hours. Five hour happy hours. Five days a week. With half-off everything from rum punch to spicy guava lollipop wings. And two gratis arcade tokens with every cocktail. This scenario pretty much only works at Ricky’s South Beach, by the way.

Thursday
The Standard’s Got a Neon Pool Party With Underwater Music
READY, SET, GLOW

The Standard’s Got a Neon Pool Party With Underwater Music

There are pool parties. Then there are pool parties with DJ-spun tunes piped into an underwater speaker system and neon-lit water under a moonlit sky. That last one’s the Standard’s Psychedelic Night Swim, which sounds way cooler than the first one.

Friday
Giant Cookies in Little River
COOKIE OF THE YEAR

Giant Cookies in Little River

Those cookies from Panther Coffee. The ones that weigh five ounces. Yeah, those. They’re Cindy Lou’s, and they have their own home now. While the new cookie shop has no set menu or seats, you can pop in and see which of the 30 options you can grab daily. In conclusion: cookies.

A Dessert Lounge Made Completely of Ice
THE FROZEN ONE

A Dessert Lounge Made Completely of Ice

Here’s a pop-up dessert lounge at W South Beach with an emphasis on all things ice. Basically, you’ll go there when you’re hot and someone will scrape a snow cone from the wall and drizzle it in fruity flavors. Then you’ll eat it. Then you’ll be less hot. Science.

May 19, noon-6pm, W South Beach, 2201 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-938-3000

Monday
Bowling and Karaoke, a Pairing Whose Time Has Come
KINGPIN

Bowling and Karaoke, a Pairing Whose Time Has Come

Bowling’s fun. So is karaoke. So is this place called Kings Bowl that opens on Monday and will have both of those things, plus Nutella-and-Frangelico milkshakes. As you were.

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.
