In case you missed it on Tuesday, we've got a free five-night ski getaway lined up for one lucky Ski & Board subscriber. And unless you happen to be a late-night talk show host, you should be feeling pretty lucky.

Wagyu Sushi at Blue Sea

The sleek sushi bar at the Delano celebrates its 10th anniversary this month with a new lower-priced menu of small plates and rolls. We recommend the Wagyu Tartare Roll, made with American Wagyu and French pickles over wasabi crunchy rice. Of course, the fantastic people-watching is always free.

Available now, Blue Sea, 1685 Collins Ave, 305-672-2000, see the menu

Betty Boop Cabaret at SoBe Arts

When it comes to sexy cartoon characters, nobody can touch Jessica Rabbit. But right after her, there's Betty Boop. This weekend, the Little Stage Theater recreates some of Ms. Boop's pouty performances with a live vocalist accompanied by a jazz combo and a screening of vintage film clips.

Jan 15-17, 9pm, $10-$25, SoBe Arts, 2100 Washington Ave, 305-674-9220

Borekas and Foie Gras in Sunny Isles

The old Bissaleh space is now the H Restaurant, a jazzy French bistro with a roaring wood-burning oven and live Parisian singers on Saturday nights. They've still got your flaky Middle Eastern borekas (puff pastries) on the menu, as well as Gallic dishes like escargots in butter and Shrimp and Scallops Provencal.

Sunday

Short Rib Potato Pancakes at Steak 954

The decades come and go, but one thing remains the same: the awesomeness of a big ol' brunch. Stephen Starr fulfills your eggs Benedict needs with this new menu at the W Fort Lauderdale's oceanfront steakhouse. Why it's worth the drive: Serrano Ham Crêpes and Vanilla French Toast With Dulce de Leche.

Sundays, 7am-2pm, Steak 954, 401 N Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd, 954-414-8333

The Lincoln Road sushi outpost is staging a "tweet up"—it's a Twitter thing—with $5 caipirinhas, $5 mojitos and wallet-friendly tapas like $6 lobster taquitos and $4 salt-and-pepper squid. Thankfully, you don't have to limit your consumption to 140 bites.
