TAP OUT

Tap 42 Opens in Midtown. Flowing Beer Follows.

Yes, Midtown has a Tap 42 now. There’s a covered patio for eating rainbow sushi bowls, and a bar for drinking a few of the 42 beers on tap. Oh, and there’s whiskey, bourbon and a weekday happy hour, which also feels remarkably relevant.

Your Date Will Like This

Here comes Babalu’s Summer Camp pop-up, where you can procure things for the special people in your life, take them to the perfume bar and check out art installations ranging anywhere from fashion illustrations to digital pop art. Take a date, is basically what we’re saying.

Friday
Well This Is Pretty Damned Charming
GARDEN PARTY

Well This Is Pretty Damned Charming

Turns out, happy hours and gardens set in lush backyards surrounded by coral-bordered ponds work well together. Case in point: the one in Café Roval’s backyard, where a skilled barkeep will make you sake, wine and beer cocktails infused to taste like whiskey drinks. Who knew...

Mon-Fri, 5-7pm, Café Roval, 5808 NE 4th Ct, 786-953-7850

Sunday
It’s a Backyard Barbecue. With People Walking on Stilts. At a Yacht Club.
A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT

It’s a Backyard Barbecue. With People Walking on Stilts. At a Yacht Club.

Barbecues and Memorial Day go together like, well... that. Which explains why River Yacht Club is having a two-day, backyard-style grilling fest with Korean-style short ribs and ginger barbecue chicken. Not to mention entertainers walking on stilts, a DJ and you just sort of hanging out in the middle of everything.

May 28-29, noon-10pm, no cover, River Yacht Club, 401 SW 3rd Ave, 305-200-5716

LONG STRANGE WEEKEND

The Monday Brunch You Will Most Certainly Require

Sweet potato tater tots. Wood-oven-baked eggs. Pre-noon Bloody Mary’s. Ah, the glory of Monday brunch during a long weekend. This one comes courtesy of Glass and Vine in the Grove. The others come courtesy of pretty much no one.

May 29, 10am-3:30pm, Glass & Vine, 2820 MacFarlane Rd, Coconut Grove, 305-200-5628

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.
