In light of the skimpy holiday weekend (WTF, July 4th?), a party at the Acqualina's ESPA spa ought to set the scales right. There'll be complimentary cocktails and canapés to keep you fueled as you explore ESPA's stress-kicking repertoire of neck and shoulder rubs, foot scrubs and mini-facials.
Things to do for July 02, 2009
Water Nymphs, BBQ Ribs and Don Flamenco (Minus Don)
The weekend is starred and striped.
The South American sensory-overload show that has been rocking the Arsht Center has decided to extend its run to August 2 (must be those dancing nymphs in the suspended pool). In honor of the new dates, they're offering $10-off tickets this weekend (use promo code FREEDOM), plus a prolonged meet-and-greet with said nymphs in the G Lounge.
Birthdays are about doing something nice for yourself, like feasting on killer barbecue fare like grilled baby back ribs, filet mignon and scallop skewers, washed down with $5 sangrias and beers in Red's backyard-hoedown scene. And when it's fireworks time, head up to the rooftop terrace for some of the best views in Miami.
The folks at seafood trattoria Alta Mar want to ease you into the workweek with half off their best bottles of wine. And unlike most deals like this, the whole list is fair game, even that $750 bottle of '75 Chateau Lafite Bordeaux—in case you're in the mood to dine like it's 2006.
There's no way you won't be tempted to get up and shake your ass at this raucous, sexy, boozy party where stellar guitarists hold court in a cavernous Latin brasserie. It should help that pitchers of red and white sangria are half off, as are mouthwatering tapas like grilled octopus, seafood ceviche and pork spring rolls.
