Beach Taco Lands at Barrio. Tacos Ensue.

You Also Get to Dress Up Like David Bowie This Weekend, So That Feels Important

Slicker Than Your Average Pocketknives

A good pocketknife has to do a couple of things well: cut stuff and fit in your pocket. A great pocketknife does those things and looks great while doing them. In other words, these Damascus blade folders from BucknBear are great pocketknives.

Thursday
Cold Brew. Juice. Sweet Relief.
THE JUICE IS LOOSE

Cold Brew. Juice. Sweet Relief.

Drinking cold-pressed juices and cold brews. Sitting in cold AC. Playing it cool while people watching in a nice SoBe neighborhood. All things you can do now that Dr. Smood is open and about to throw its grand opening party in Sunset Harbor. Related: it's hot out.

This Party Has Vodka and Fun Dip
WAX NOSTALGIC

This Party Has Vodka and Fun Dip

The new Bounce Back cocktail party on the 50th floor of the W strongly encourages you to listen to '80s and '90s music, play childhood board games, eat throwback things like Fun Dip, take yearbook pics in a photo booth and drink vodka. Though you probably only needed to be regularly encouraged.

Saturday
It's a Taco Party, and You're Invited
SHELL GAME

It's a Taco Party, and You're Invited

Beach Taco is coming to SoBe later this summer. But until then, you can sate your cravings for its tacos and guac from the chef behind Estiatorio Milos at Barrio in Wynwood. And if you get there between 7-8pm for the grand opening on Saturday, you can have those tacos gratis. No pressure.

Bowie in Space Lands at Churchill's Pub. Yes, There Will Be Costumes.
THIS LITTLE ZIGGY

Bowie in Space Lands at Churchill's Pub. Yes, There Will Be Costumes.

You know all the words to "Space Oddity." And "Let's Dance." And "Modern Love." Excellent. Because Churchill's is dedicating a night to David Bowie with multiple tribute bands and a costume contest. Also excellent.

Sunday
Brunch Is Served at Bird & Bone
GAME OF BONES

Brunch Is Served at Bird & Bone

Starting this Sunday, Bird and Bone will have brunch. We could probably stop there since that skews pretty miraculous on its own, but we'll also go ahead and mention that there will be chicken and waffles and bottomless bloody's. Stopping now.

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.
