Things to do for September 10, 2009

The Weekender

Disco Babes, Tequila Nights and Backyard BBQ

The weekend is salted with a squeeze of lime.

Thursday
20% Off the Gansevoort
GETAWAY

20% Off the Gansevoort

Technically speaking, you've still got a couple more weeks of summer, which means you can totally justify taking a few days of staycation (don't actually use the word "staycation," though). Rooms and spa treatments are 20 percent off, thus leaving cash for the important things, like pre-massage cocktails.

Friday
Jamie Jo Harris Spins at Wall
BOOGIE

Jamie Jo Harris Spins at Wall

You've heard socialite-turned-recording artist Jamie Jo Harris is the music industry's next "it" girl (and recording a duet with the Bee Gees' Barry Gibb is certainly…something). Judge for yourself tonight when she headlines a DJ set at the W South Beach's gold-flecked nightclub. Something tells us there'll be a mind-blowing remix of "Stayin' Alive."

No cost, 11pm, Sept 11, Wall, 2201 Collins Ave, 305-938-3131

Saturday
Disco Baby Supper Club at Badrutt's Place
MIRROR BALL

Disco Baby Supper Club at Badrutt's Place

Should your disco fever extend another day, you're encouraged to wear bellbottoms to this dinner party at the downtown restaurant-lounge/cigar bar. (No comment.) DJ Mark Leventhal whips out his stash of '70s-era vinyl to accompany the restaurant's $35 Miami Spice menu. Because nothing goes better with Gloria Gaynor than prawns flambé.

Tuesday
Viva Mexico at Cantina Beach
MARGARITAS

Viva Mexico at Cantina Beach

The Ritz on Key Biscayne considers Cinco de Mayo something like the discount piñata version of the true Mexican Independence Day (in this case, the eve of September 15), and who are you to argue. Celebrate at the waterfront taco lounge with $10 pork carnitas, $8 tequila cocktails and $5 cervezas.

Wednesday
Barbecue Night at Waxy's on the River
GRILLIN'

Barbecue Night at Waxy's on the River

You're already familiar with Waxy's talented keg tappers at the Miami riverfront, now see how the megapub does with serving up flame-grilled meats backyard barbecue style. This Wednesday (and every hump day thereafter), $12 gets you a cocktail and a plate of grilled goodies like shrimp and pineapple skewers, grilled cedar plank salmon, burgers and hot dogs. It's like Labor Day all over again.

$12, 5pm-10pm, Sept 16, Waxy's, 690 SW 1st Ct, 786-871-7660
