All That's New and Glorious at This Year's SOBEWFF
EAT, DRINK, REPEAT

All That's New and Glorious at This Year's SOBEWFF

A few new and damn good reasons to hit up South Beach Wine and Food Festival: 

1) Marcus Samuelsson's Overtown brunch. 
2) Late-night dessert and dancing with Bobby and Sophie Flay. 
3) Emeril Lagasse’s clambake. 
4) Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Action Bronson's midnight munchies on
Española Way.
5) Other stuff.

Thursday
On the Matters of Cuba Libres, Backgammon and Slip-Ons
SLIP AND FALL

On the Matters of Cuba Libres, Backgammon and Slip-Ons

Pop-ups are good. Pop-ups at the Standard with morning cafecito, afternoon Cuba Libres, random games of Backgammon, general hanging out with friends, trying on Sabah slip-ons and adding some to your closet as a staple... those are better.

Friday
Where You Eat and Drink in Fort Lauderdale Now
THAT'S THE SPIRITS

Where You Eat and Drink in Fort Lauderdale Now

The next time you're in Fort Lauderdale and in need of a classic Sidecar, hit Good Spirits. It's a shiny new mid-modern, neighborhood-y tavern with Old Fashioneds, braised short ribs and cheddar grits. Plus, indoor/outdoor seating because Fort Lauderdale.

Now open, Good Spirits, 476 N Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale, 954-523-2580

Saturday
Just Your Average Hotel Robot
IT'S GETTING BOT IN HERE

Just Your Average Hotel Robot

For the sake of argument, let's assume that it's more fun to have a robot deliver you extra towels and toiletries than some average, human hotel employee. Enter Shelly, the Shelborne's new robot who does all that, plus hands out roses at the door and doesn't awkwardly wait to be tipped.

Now available at the Shelborne, 1801 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-531-1271

Sunday
This Brunch Has a Thing for Tableside Cart Service
CART AND PARCEL

This Brunch Has a Thing for Tableside Cart Service

It's as if Chef Michael Schwartz knew you needed a Sunday brunch with tableside carts bearing savory and sweet dishes like concha (a streusel-topped brioche pastry) and grilled pork belly feijoada. He even anticipated your thirst for shareable, spiked Frescas. That's a thirst of yours, right?

Sundays, 11am-4pm, Amara at Paraiso, 3101 NE 7th Ave, 305-702-5528 for reservations

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.
