Things to do for August 06, 2009

The Weekender

Belly Dancers, Lobsters and Snakes

The weekend is totally bitchin'.

Thursday
Full Moon Party at the National
Lunar Landing

Full Moon Party at the National

The beachfront hotel is making itself available to your partying needs with a full roster of Goa-inspired accoutrements: there'll be complimentary Dziaq mojitos, a fire show, tarot card readers, DJ Danny Stern holding court and belly dancers with snakes. Just in case regular belly dancers weren't enough stimulation.

Friday
Nick D'Annunzio's '80s B-day at Club 50
Neon

Nick D'Annunzio's '80s B-day at Club 50

The PR maven's birthday parties are the stuff of legend, and this year's brings on the madness with gratis vodka cocktails, food from Eos and a parade of scenesters decked out in their best '80s gear. Time to dig out your fluorescent Who's the Boss? T-shirt.

8pm-12am, Aug 7, The Viceroy, 485 Brickell Ave, RSVP to 305-864-3434 x132

Saturday
Get Lei'd at Nikki Beach
Mahalo

Get Lei'd at Nikki Beach

This might be the only instance where we'll condone, nay, encourage, your wearing a Hawaiian shirt. A daylong luau complete with two-for-one mai tais, a whole roasted pig and hula-dancing girls in grass skirts will do that.

No cost, starts at 4pm, Aug 8, Nikki Beach, 1 Ocean Dr, 305-538-1111

Sunday
Spiny Lobsters at A Fish Called Avalon
Sea King

Spiny Lobsters at A Fish Called Avalon

'Tis the season for local succulence in the form of Florida spiny lobster. Claim one of the tables on Avalon's Ocean Drive patio and prepare to feast on the limited-time treats like Bang Bang Florida Spiny Lobster in a citrus-mojo marinade with avocado cream and hearts of palm salad. It's definitely what Bam Bam from The Flintstones would order.

Monday
Pizza Pairing Dinner at Joey's
Wining

Pizza Pairing Dinner at Joey's

You don't usually look forward to Monday, but the artsy Wynwood bistro is giving you a reason to start the week. They're hosting a massive, pull-out-all-the-stops three-course wine-pairing dinner, featuring scamorza thin-crust pizzas and boutique Italian wines, all for less than the cost of a bottle at most South Beach restaurants.

$30-$40, 7pm, Aug 10, Joey's, 2506 NW 2nd Ave, 305-438-0488
