Pasta 101 at Prima Pasta

You've mastered pasta eating. Now it's time to own the art of pasta making, and the gracious folks at Prima Pasta are willing to guide you through the dough-filled process. First you'll learn how to craft ricotta-filled cannelloni and lobster-stuffed, heart-shaped ravioli. Then you'll eat it, along with free-flowing Italian wines.

$39, 6:30-8pm, May 29, Cafe Prima Pasta, 414 71st St, 305-867-0106

Saturday
The Mediterranean Experience
Tastings

The Mediterranean Experience

The weather forecast for Saturday is rain, which means the beach is out, but sampling your way through olive oils and wines from sultry regions is most definitely in. There'll be 150 exhibitors offering tastes of their wares at this mega-trade show, but we recommend finding the nearest Ibérico jamon stand and getting to know that region really, really well.

Elevate Your Week Kickoff
Tippling

Elevate Your Week Kickoff

The Conrad's 25th-floor lounge has decided you should be there sipping cocktails every night of the week. Start off Mondays with $6 mojitos, come by Tuesdays for organic cocktails and $1 bar snacks, pop in Wednesdays for half-off wines (bottles and glasses), show up Thursdays for "low-cal" cocktails, and don't miss Fridays, when the entire bar is half off.

Mon-Fri starting June 1, 5-8pm, Level 25, 1395 Brickell Ave, 305-503-6529

Taste Chile at Da Campo Osteria

For one week only, the swanky Todd English restaurant partners with Chilean chef Pilar Rodriguez to offer the best of both continents with a four-course menu that pairs avocado, king crab gazpacho and wagyu strip loin with pisco sours and Chilean wines. Yes, it's worth the drive…

$85, June 1-6, Da Campo Osteria, 3333 NE. 32nd Ave, Ft. Lauderdale, 954-226-5002

Cocktails and Art at Club 50

If you still have yet to admire the stunning vision that is the 50th-floor lounge at the Viceroy, this is your chance—catch the opening of local artist David Rohn's Warhol-esque work while you sip complimentary Ruinart cocktails and enjoy the views straight out of Blade Runner.
