Things to do for September 17, 2009

The Weekender

Burlesque, Wine, V-Necks and Bikini Judging

The weekend is ironing its bikini-inspector T-shirt.

Thursday
Indie Clothes Trunk Show
Sale-ing

Indie Clothes Trunk Show

If you're looking to enhance your wardrobe, clothes from local designers will be marked off 40 to 60 percent tonight—look for V-necks from Gold Saturn, vintage gear from Shop Bar, space-age knits from Krelwear, and complimentary drinks and cupcakes. Just beware of purchases made under the influence of red velvet; it's like the absinthe of baked goods.

No cost, 6-10pm, Sept 17, Style Lab, 5580 NE 4th Ct, 305-756-1010

Friday
Obba Sushi Opens
Sashimi

Obba Sushi Opens

There's not much in the way of affordable sushi on Brickell, so this tiny new spot on the ground floor of a condo building ought to come in handy the next time you're craving spicy tuna rolls and shrimp tempura. They're also dishing well-priced sakes and Japanese beers, or you can stay home and let their Smart Car delivery service do all the work.

Now open, Obba Sushi, 200 SE 15th Rd, 786-953-8710

Saturday
Shameless Burlesque at the Vagabond
Pasties

Shameless Burlesque at the Vagabond

There are a million ways to celebrate the start of a new season; watching scantily clad dancers is at the top of our list. And more good news: DJs Ray Milian and Carmel Ophir will be providing musical accompaniment. Because if there's one thing you can't stand, it's poor music with your cleavage.

No cost, 10pm, Sept 19, The Vagabond, 30 NE 14th St, 305-379-0508

Sunday
Bikini Casting Call at the Shore Club

Bikini Casting Call at the Shore Club

You're already familiar with the stunning bodies that make up the guest list at the Shore Club's Sunday party. This weekend there's an added layer of swimsuited complexity as the Bahamas resort Atlantis holds a casting call for potential competitors in its October Blackjack and Bikini challenge. Your discerning eye has never been more needed.

No cost, 2-5pm, Sept 20, Shore Club, 1901 Collins Ave, 305-695-3100, RSVP here

Wednesday
Free-Flowing Wine at Fratelli Lyon
Top Notes

Free-Flowing Wine at Fratelli Lyon

Your favorite Design District enoteca transforms into a wine-soaked continuing-education program, with free-flowing pours of half a dozen wines from Italy's central region (Umbria, Marche, Abruzzo) and plenty of fresh-from-the-oven stuzzichini, or Italian small plates. It's too bad they don't offer this at DeVry.

$45, 7:30-9:30pm, Sept 23, Fratelli Lyon, 4141 NE 2nd Ave, 305-572-1271
