On Perfect Baked Goods and Where to Procure Them

French pastries. Rich coffee. Homemade soups. Cheesy sandwiches on fresh-baked breads. All things you can have now that Café Crème is open in Upper Buena Vista. All things that also conveniently go well with people-watching outside in a bistro-style seat. Silly people.

SECOND HELPING

Miami Has Two Times the Jack's Now

So you want some Italian comfort food from Jack's like chicken parmesan sandwiches and Nonna's homemade meatballs delivered to you. Great. You can have that now that they have a second location in Mary Brickell Village dedicated to delivery and carry out. There’s still a few outdoor tables, though, in case you change your mind.

BEER NECESSITIES

It's a Beer Bash at Concrete Beach. Hey, You Should Go to That.

To celebrate three years of beer, Concrete Beach Brewery is doing a noon surprise beer release, filling their taps with guest's beers, playing live tunes, dishing up tacos and empanadas and presenting you with a photobooth so you can capture these fleeting, beer-laden moments at its anniversary bash. Aww.

You Are Now Free to Brunch It Up at Pelican Landing

Pelican Landing has a stunning waterfront view. It also has live music and a bottomless Bloody Mary bar. And now that it serves brunch with things like sautéed Florida Keys pink shrimp with poached eggs and vanilla brioche French toast... it's just better now, is all.

CRAW DEAL

Broken Shaker's Crawfish Boil Is Straight Out of New Orleans

The Broken Shaker doesn't have an outpost in New Orleans, so it's doing the next best thing and transforming its backyard into a Louisiana-inspired crawfish boil. Eat the little guys around the pool while sipping cocktails and bobbing your head around to the music. Head-bobbing optional but highly recommended.

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.
