Turns Out, Dining in the Dark Is Still a Thing

We're certainly not the first city to get a Dining in the Dark experience. In fact, we're probably closer to the last. But what's important is that we have one now at One Door East, so grab a date and head over to sip welcome cocktails and eat six ever-rotating courses in complete darkness. Finally.

Now available at One Door East, 620 S Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale, 954-225-6430

A FOND FAREWELL

Celebrate the Life of Sweet Liberty's John Lermayer

John Lermayer put Miami's cocktails on the map through bartending and with the arrival of Sweet Liberty. His unexpected passing is a great loss. Join friends and fans to toast this nightlife legend, enjoy fare from Stiltsville Fish Bar and Alter and generally pursue happiness the way John would have wanted.

With the longest day of the year upon us, head to Lightkeepers on Key Biscayne to put in extra time looking at that stunning ocean view while enjoying $1 oysters, discounted cocktails, a mixology mix-off and a DJ for extra dancing until the sun finally goes down. They heard you requested extra dancing.

RAW DEAL

Rejoice, for the World Has Been Graced With Another Etaru

First came Etaru Hallandale. Now, Etaru Las Olas is upon us. It's where you'll go for Japanese deliciousness like sashimi with yuzu truffle dressing and cherry blossom-infused vodka and lychee cocktails while overlooking passersby on the Fort Lauderdale street. Actually, probably look at your date instead.

Now open, Etaru Las Olas, 500 E Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, 954-477-8068

Beer and a Gratis Pig Roast = Nice Little Sunday

Miami Beach's oldest brewery is about to celebrate another trip around the sun. And this time, the Abbey Brewing Company is throwing its biggest party yet (for 18 hours) in its expanded space. All the more room to toast with late-morning happy hour specials and a gratis pig roast. Their party. Your party. Same thing.

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.
