Things to do for October 04, 2017
Welcome to the Standard's Lazy Sunday Pool Party 2.0
And the Evil Clowns Will See You NowBy Ginger Harris
You Didn't Forget About Oktoberfest, Did You?
For 10 glorious days, oh yes, there will be beer. We speak, of course, of Oktoberfest at Fritz & Franz in Coral Gables. There will be yodeling and brat-eating contests. There will be live music and Bavarian food buffets. There will be regrets. But, you know, good regrets.
The Evil Clowns Will See You Now
The 1455 Asylum. The Gates of Phobias with 3D elements. A rock and roll circus sideshow, a collection of oddities, horrifying clowns and a full bar. Happy October. Here's your House of Horror.
Grab a Date. Have An Enchanted Evening. Repeat.
Fashion, Art and Music (FAM Night) in Coconut Grove lives up to its name, what with all the musicians playing on tree-lined streets, places like the William McCall Gallery displaying art and shops like Flying Lizard offering 15% off. Plus a date-night bonus of dinner and live jazz after at Peacock Garden.
You Probably Don't Normally Watch Football Like This
Jezebel's Sunday night football bash is just like watching the game in your own living room. That is, if you had seven massive TVs, multiple leather couches, a well-appointed bar and plates of wings, lobster tacos, truffle fries and fried Oreos. In which case, yep, just like home.
Lazy Sunday at the Standard Gets Instrumental
The only way to improve the Standard's Lazy Sunday atmosphere of food fresh off the grill, cold drinks and frolicking madly about the pool is by adding a performance from Barcelona's Las Migas and the New World Symphony fellows while you dance on the dock overlooking the bay. That's the only way though.
What Else Is New
Could Adam Sandler Win an Oscar?
We're referring, naturally, to the comedic actor's dramatic turn in arguably the best Netflix original movie to date, The Meyerowitz Stories. Other things to read this week: 1) Our chat with Pulitzer prize-winning author Jeffrey Eugenides about his new book; and 2) an essential guide to building a great home bar.
