Things to do for February 18, 2010

Tonight: Gratis Wine at La Côte

The beachfront restaurant La Côte is passing out free wine for two hours this evening. It'll also be your chance to hobnob with French winemakers (if you're into that), and then later, there'll be an after-party presided over by DJ Mark Centennial. Not to be confused with DJ Justin Bicentennial.

Feb 18, 7:30-9:30pm, no cost, La Côte, 4441 Collins Ave, 305-674-4710

A New Pizza Oven at Nikki Beach
CRISPY

A New Pizza Oven at Nikki Beach

Rocking your cabana-filled world this weekend: Nikki Beach just launched dinner service from Thursdays to Sundays on their outdoor cabana beds. And while there's plenty of fresh seafood up for grabs, your first sampling should involve the crispy gourmet pizzas, courtesy of their new wood-burning oven and Naples-born pizzaiolo.

Now available Thu-Sun, Nikki Beach, 1 Ocean Dr, 305-538-1111, see the menu

Saturday
Bohemian Bash at MOCA
ARTY TIME

Bohemian Bash at MOCA

MOCA's annual gala may be the funkiest formal event in America, and this weekend's Dada-inspired party is no exception. Expect scruffy artists, rebellious socialites and bespectacled collectors hanging out with you by the open bar. (Probably not as many bespectacled collectors on the dance floor.)

Feb 20, 8pm-midnight, $175, MOCA, 770 NE 125th St, 305-893-6211

Sunday
Bottomless Bloody Marys
TABASCO

Bottomless Bloody Marys

The hunt for the perfect brunch is an ongoing pursuit. This weekend the Angler's launches a worthy contender that features Banana Nutella Pancakes and Steak and Eggs with shallot fries. Sweetening the deal (at least figuratively) is the unlimited Bloody Mary Bar, where $14 grants you the run of a tableside cart that also packs Chianti-cured salami.

Sat-Sun starting Feb 20, 11am-5pm, The Angler's, 660 Washington Ave, 305-534-9600

Next Thursday
Fish and Wine Blowout at Area 31
BIG SEAFOOD

Fish and Wine Blowout at Area 31

You can now reserve spots for Area 31's four-course seafood dinner next Thursday, which is shaping up to be a little bit like Thanksgiving on Key West. To wit: House Smoked Local Kingfish Croquettes, Seared Key West Yellowtail Snapper, paella and crudo stations, boutique wine pairings, beer and sake. Don't leave hungry. Or paella-less.

Feb 25, 7-11pm, $175, Area 31, 270 Biscayne Blvd Way, 305-424-5234
