Here's a Bright Idea

Coocepts uses state-of-the-art 3D printing to make really cool wireless lamps that look like lit-up moons, dandelions and city skylines. The moon lamps will definitely come in handy should you be interested in recreating last week’s eclipse. Or just interested in creating some extra reading light.

Cold and Delicious Things on Sticks. That's What They Do Here.

You know that one craving you get for guava-and-cheese cake pops on sticks? Feel free to fulfill that at the new Cielito Artisan Pops in Wynwood. It's also got dulce de leche with brownie chunks on sticks. Watermelon pops on sticks. Just a bunch of things on sticks, really.

How the River Yacht Club Does Soul Food

There's soul food, and then there's the type of soul food that comes from chef Amaris Jones. The latter involves three courses with a Caribbean and South American twist at the new weekly dinner series at River Yacht Club. Sidenote, the latter is riverfront and under the stars, so the latter is better.

Aug 31, 8pm, $39, Soul Table at River Yacht Club, 401 SW 3rd Ave, 305-200-5716 for reservations

Just a Nice New Place to Listen to Live Music and Drink Drinks

If you like live music, vodka cocktails and random vintage furniture and props that look like they’re from a movie set, grab a date and get to Ace Props for its new Listening Den. The series kicks off with Atlanta's Macy Todd, as well as a local opening act. And vodka cocktails.

TO-BREW LIST

Nightlife Brewing Company Now Exists

Putting a new brewery adjacent to Marlins Park is smart. Having that brewery pour varieties of blonde ales and brunette nut brown ales from their own brand and guest taps is smarter. You going there to enjoy all of it during baseball season is absolutely brilliant.

Two Brunch-y Ways to Say Farewell to Summer

At Nikki Beach: An adult camp-themed brunch complete with grown-up bug juice, potato sack races, tug-of-war and s'mores.
At Seaspice: Don something white and head to this brunch party where you'll start with black truffle egg tarts and champagne and end up dancing to live music with more champagne.

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.
