Things to do for December 20, 2017
A New Biergarten, a Goodbye-Hanukkah Bash and a Giant Piece of Art That You Can Slide Down
Let the Great Holiday Weekend BeginBy Ginger Harris
What Once Was an Irish Pub Is Now a Holiday Wonderland
When your local Irish pub transforms into Miami's only Christmas-themed bar, here's what you do: drink things like cold chocolates with peppermint vodka, cocoa and whipped cream. Then you dance around to Christmas music, look at floor-to-ceiling lights and kiss someone under the mistletoe. Then maybe drink more things.
Oh Look, It's a Biergarten at Brickell City Centre
Biergartens. Those are fun. Especially when they pop up in the middle of Brickell City Center for the first time ever. Stop in for Boxelder Craft Beer Market brews and vodka cocktails by Mac's Pubs, then stick around for Spris pizza and live music. See, biergartens are fun.
Here's a Huge Piece of Art You Can Slide Down
Since you're probably going to be at Aventura mall buying last-minute gifts anyway, give yourself a shopping break and check out the new slide tower. As in the towering new sculpture by artist Carsten Höller that you physically slide down. The concept is to promote joy, which seems accurate.
A Three-Course Feast at Lightkeepers for the Eve of All Eves
A benefit of eating Christmas Eve dinner out is not having to do dishes. The benefits of having Christmas Eve dinner out at Lightkeepers include duck and bone-in filet, charred octopus, a dessert buffet and a barefoot pre- or post-dinner stroll on the sand. We're sure you'll do the right thing.
Bidding Hanukkah Farewell in Grand Fashion
How do you say farewell to Hanukkah's eight crazy nights? Bowling amid neon lights, ice skating indoors, dancing to live DJs and sipping vodka in the basement of the Edition. We speak, of course, of a little party called Disco Dreidel. A fantastically named one at that.
What Else Is New
The Trump Administration Panic Power Rankings Are Back
Find out who (or what) nabbed the top spot. Then, if you feel so inclined, read about the most perfect union between Sufjan Stevens's music and Oscar frontrunner, Call Me By Your Name. Oh, and here's a Shakespearean sonnet composed for the drunken goddess of MTV's Floribama Shore. It's the first of its kind. And probably the last.
