Now that the fall "cool front" has rolled in (at a chilling 70 degrees…brrr), it's time to enhance your wardrobe with a few winter classics. And to ease you into your purchasing, there'll be gratis wine, beer, vodka cocktails and a DJ—setting the stage for one hell of a "trying on button-downs" montage.
Things to do for November 12, 2009
Fitness Models, Iggy Pop and Free Cocktails
The weekend used to be a hand model.
$7 Tapas at RA Sushi
Normally we don't get all rah-rah over tapas priced at seven dollars, but this is raw fish we're talking about. RA Sushi's revamped menu now includes lots of tricked-out sashimi; our favorite has to be the yellowtail bathed in a garlic citrus ponzu sauce, topped with organic greens and salmon carpaccio, with a wasabi-infused oil.
Call it American Six-Pack. The folks at Wilhelmina are looking for a few good men and women to bare their toned bodies at this open casting call for Shape and Men's Fitness. This may be the big break you and your abs have been looking for—and even if you're not dreaming of being the next MF guy but wouldn't mind seeing a few dozen of Miami's hottest Pilates regulars, this might be a good time to pick up your weekly pack of Emergen-C.
Saturday evening is your chance to meet the man who put skinny jeans on the map. Iggy Pop—rock renegade and former front man for the Stooges—joins author/photographer Robert Matheu to read from his new book The Stooges: The Authorized and Illustrated Story.
Picture a party with wine and cigars. Outside, overlooking the bay. Now add a fleet of the world's rarest and most expensive cars, from the Lamborghinis of your childhood dreams to Aston-Martins and a Ferrari FXX worth $2.5 million. Mix it together and you get the Festival of Speed, a must-see for anyone whose tastes skew above a Honda Del Sol.
