Bird & Bone Hosts a One-Day Drive-Thru

Makeshift drive-thrus you can pull up or walk up to are interesting. Especially when they’re serving buckets of Bird & Bone’s hot fried chicken with cheddar-and-chive biscuits at the Crown entrance at Confidante for one day only. Yep. Especially then.

What Mermaids, Miami and Crayons Have in Common

Take one adult coloring book about a mermaid’s somewhat naughty Miami adventures, throw a poolside launch party for it at the Standard, enlist a sea creature dress code, play music, offer mermaid-themed drinks, award prizes for whoever best stays within the lines and... well, there you go.

YOU DON’T KNOW JACK’S

Jack’s Has a New Late-Night Menu. And Apparently Board Games.

Sometimes you need homemade baked ziti before calling it a night. And sometimes you need to kick someone’s ass in Connect Four while waiting for said ziti. And sometimes all of that leads to late-night dancing, vodka shots and another round of board game showdowns at Jack’s.

Fri-Sat, 10pm-1am, Jack’s, 2426 NE 2nd Ave, 305-640-5507

ALL THAT LATIN JAZZ

Suffice It to Say Your Date Won’t Hate This

There’s jazz. And then there’s three hours of live Latin jazz by Kemuel Roig and the Ball and Chain Quartet smack in the middle of Cuban town on Sunday nights, where dancing isn’t mandatory but happens naturally and the mojitos just flow and you enjoy every last drop of your fleeting long weekend.

Sundays, 7-10pm, no cover, Ball & Chain, 1513 SW 8th St, 305-643-7820

Katz’s Deli Tries Miami on for Size

Katz’s Deli (yes, that one) is about to take a little road trip from New York to our fair city to partner with Chef Michael Schwartz of Harry’s to give its famous pastrami sandwiches a Miami twist. And now our job is done 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.
