Things to do for December 31, 2009

The Weekender

Model/DJs, Stilt Walkers and Endless Bloody Marys

The weekend is in 10, 9, 8, 7…

Belly Dancers at Nikki Beach

Belly Dancers at Nikki Beach

At this oceanfront tiki megaclub, a variety of scantily clad entertainers—flamenco stilt walkers, French can-can dancers, Moroccan belly dancers, fire throwers and aerialists—will help you ring in the New Year. You know, in case your party's fire throwers cancel at the last minute.

$75 and up, 8pm-5am, Dec 31, Nikki Beach, 1 Ocean Dr, 305-538-1111 or tickets here

Sky Nellor at Club 50

Sky Nellor at Club 50

It's only logical to celebrate a night about the future at a futuristic venue. (And if there's one thing you're looking for tonight, it's logic.) Head to the Viceroy's 50th-floor club for glossy views of the downtown skyline and the fireworks over the bay—though DJ (and model) Sky Nellor ensures that the views inside ain't bad, either.

$75 and up, 8:30pm-5am, Dec 31, Viceroy, 485 Brickell Ave, 305-503-4400

Weekend Brunch at 8 Oz.

Weekend Brunch at 8 Oz.

The indie burger bar kicks off 2010 by offering you a hangover-curing brunch of breakfast burritos, smoked salmon platters and build-your-own-omelets. And if those don't do the trick, the $20 all-you-can-drink Bloody Marys should.

Opening Jan 1, 9am-3pm, Sat and Sun, 8 oz., 1080 Alton Rd, 305-397-8246

Hakkasan Introduces Lunch

Hakkasan Introduces Lunch

If you have yet to check out Alan Yau's gorgeous dim sum temple, here's your excuse: the new dim sum lunch menu. Expect family-style dumpling platters with fillings like shrimp, pork and exotic mushrooms, traditional breakfast soups like congee and stir fry galore. After a lunch like that, dinner might not be necessary.

Opening Jan 2, at the Fontainebleau, 4441 Collins Ave, 786-276-1388

Bombay Darbar Opens

Bombay Darbar Opens

The Grove gets a jolt of Bollywood panache with this Indian newcomer, nestled into the old Anokha space. And on opening night, dishes like chicken tikka masala, garlic naan and lamb vindaloo are half-off—or to put it another way, more slumdog than millionaire.

Opening Jan 2, 8pm, Bombay Darbar, 3195 Commodore Plaza, 305-444-7272
