$6 Mojitos on Black Friday

As you read this, you may be battling the crowds at the Aventura Mall, trying mightily to retain your sanity. We suggest taking a break (possibly from purse-holding duty) at the Grill on the Alley, where Black & Blue Mojitos—whipped up with muddled blackberries and blueberries—are $6 all day. You're welcome.

Free Mimosas at Mai Tardi

Admission is pay what you wish, and there'll be gratis cocktails made with rum and a pineapple soda called Jupiña…

A Year's Supply of Ben & Jerry's

You're already familiar with the Mondrian's futuristic vending machine…it's where you get all your designer toothbrushes. In honor of Art Basel, Interview magazine is stuffing it with collectibles like Dolce & Gabbana's Madonna tank top, canvas kicks from Vena Cava and a year's supply of Ben & Jerry's. You go, chunky monkey.

Wednesday
Danger Mouse and David Lynch
DANGER LYNCH

Danger Mouse and David Lynch

In one of the more intriguing art-world collaborations of the year (make that any year), musical wizard Danger Mouse and cult filmmaker David Lynch are teaming up for a mixed-media exhibit. Expect photographs by Lynch and a soundtrack from Mr. Mouse featuring the Flaming Lips, Julian Casablancas and Iggy Pop—whom you'll probably bump into at the opening.

No cost, 7pm-12am, Dec 2, O.H.W.O.W., 3100 NW 7th Ave, 305-633-9345
