You’re Performing Center Stage at Faena’s Live-Band Karaoke Bash

Better Brush Up on Your Power Falsetto

Listen Up. No, Seriously, Listen Up.
FROM PERKS

Listen Up. No, Seriously, Listen Up.

Because we found you a collection of first-class wireless and ear-in headphones from the Swedish music-lovers over at VAIN STHLM. They're equipped with top-of-the-line audio technology, built for comfort and boast the clean yet definitive look you've come to expect from Scandinavian things. All that's left for you to do is press play. And stop. You'll probably have to press stop at some point, too.

Lunch Is Pretty Great. Therefore...
RIGHT SAID MED

Lunch Is Pretty Great. Therefore...

Lunch sounds good right about now. Shawarma beef and döner chicken sounds good right about now. And turns out, Taula, a new fast-casual spot in the Arts and Entertainment District, is open right about now. Sometimes it all just works out.

Now open, Taula, 1657 N Miami Ave, 786-536-4846

Live-Band Karaoke at Faena Theater: Happening
YOU’RE WITH THE BAND

Live-Band Karaoke at Faena Theater: Happening

The car, the shower, Faena Theater: all perfectly acceptable places to sing now that Faena is hosting Rock the Mic karaoke. Imbibe some things, get up on stage, crank out an ’80s hit with a live band, then leave with a video proving you did all that. Or, you know, don’t.

Friday
Mimes, Ice Cream, Champagne, Bastille Day
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN FRANCE?

Mimes, Ice Cream, Champagne, Bastille Day

On Friday, head to Stephen Starr’s French restaurant, Le Zoo, and pretend you’re in Paris celebrating Bastille Day. There will be escargot, mimes, flowing champagne, an outdoor ice cream cart, a French horn band, a photo booth and a pétanque court to perpetuate the illusion. Is all.

July 14, noon-11pm, no cover, Le Zoo at Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave, Ste 135, Bal Harbour, 305-602-9663 to RSVP

Wynwood Yard Launches a Late-Night Sandwich Counter. You Celebrate by Eating There.
NIGHT MOVES

Wynwood Yard Launches a Late-Night Sandwich Counter. You Celebrate by Eating There.

Eating things late at night happens. Especially when you’re strolling the Wynwood Yard and the new Last Call Sandwich Counter taunts you with its various grilled cheeses and pulled pork barbecue sandwiches. And when the Bar at the Yard is right there next to it. Especially then.

Fridays and Saturdays, 11pm-late, The Wynwood Yard, 56 NW 29th St, 305-351-0366

Saturday
Turns Out, You’re Not Pooling Nearly Hard Enough
POOLING AROUND

Turns Out, You’re Not Pooling Nearly Hard Enough

Problem: You need to be in a pool. With a cabana. At the Confidante. Or Four Seasons. Solution: Grab a day pass from ResortPass, have poolside lunch and drinks, cannonball furiously, rinse, repeat. 

What Else Is New

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.
