There are plenty of times an engraved champagne sabre might come in handy. When opening a bottle of champagne, of course. Or when reenacting a very fancy Zoro scene. Or when going off-registry for a wedding gift. Like they always say: the couple that sabres together, stays together.
Things to do for June 21, 2017
It’s Summer. A Beachfront Taco Truck Is in Order.
And So Is This Party Where the Freehand Transforms 30 Hotel Rooms Into 30 Different Drinking ScenariosBy Ginger Harris
Villa Azur Just Wants You to Drink Champagne
Wednesdays. Those aren’t so bad. But add in two hours of free-flowing champagne at Villa Azur’s new weekly party and they somehow get substantially better. We should probably also mention that you can eat canapés and listen to loungey music while doing all that. There, mentioned.
W South Beach Has Seaside Tacos Now
The beach is nice, what with all its sand and water. But it’s missing something. Specifically, shaved pork tacos, mezcal and fresh lemonade cocktails. Which probably explains why the W South Beach just added a beachfront taco truck with all of the above so you don’t have to miss them anymore.
It’s a Barbecue. It’s a Pool Party. It’s Both.
The Shelborne just added two of Miami’s most important summer components to its Saturdays: a pool party and a barbecue. Expect grilled crawfish tamales, grilled beef flank steak carne asada, tequila drinks from the Bodega bar pop-up and DJ-spun tunes. And you jumping into a pool.
30 Hotel Rooms. 30 Different Ways to Drink.
The Freehand is about to transform 30 of its rooms into individual parties centered around a featured spirit. Fulfill your wanderlust by going room to room, then head out to the beer garden where the Old Fashioned bar lives. You’ll allow the thematic disconnect.
Purdy Lounge Gets An Upgrade, Bourbon and All
After 17 years, Purdy Lounge got a makeover. And now it’s time for the big reveal, which works because you could use something new to sip on and look at. We suggest the colorful retro mural, blue booths and Coco Plum with bourbon, plum bitters and coconut ice cube. Not necessarily in that order.
What Else Is New
Meanwhile, Over on UrbanDaddy.com
We’re documenting Trump’s crimes against good taste, giving you a sneak peek at Public School’s high-end take on retro Air Jordans and highlighting five of the most random things you can pick up at Keith Richards’s auction this Saturday. Which, unsurprisingly, includes his leopard-print stiletto chair.
