The Things You Do for Your Whiskey

The secret ingredient to making any cocktail or whiskey pour taste better isn't an ingredient at all. It's a hunk of professional-grade metal that the pros use to make flawlessly round ice spheres, designed by the booze maestros at Cocktail Kingdom. And we got you 22% off of it. Hope you can keep a secret.

The Freehand New York Takes Over the Freehand Miami

New Yorkers often fly south for the winter. Which helps explain the upcoming Freehand New York takeover of Freehand Miami. Things we'll see before they do: a Simon and the Whale menu at 27 Restaurant with lamb carpaccio and kalamata olives, plus the NY version of Broken Shaker cocktails. And 82 degrees.

Dec 8, 6:30pm-2am, no cover, Freehand, 2727 Indian Creek Dr, Miami Beach, 305-531-2727

The Standard Has the Cure For Your Midnight Basel Munchies

You've been Baseling for days now. The art is a blur. Your eyes are full. But your stomach still needs stuff. Late-night, 3am stuff like pretzels with beer cheese sauce, fries, a milkshake and a "Vegan Impossible" burger, which defies all odds by still being delicious. The Standard Juice Café just gets you.

Now open through Dec 9, 6pm-3am, The Standard Juice Cafe & Terrace, 40 Island Ave, Miami Beach, 305-673-1717, see the menu

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.
