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.
Things to do for February 18, 2010
A Bottomless Bloody Mary Bar, Art Parties and Hot Pizza
The weekend is the captain of its soul.
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.
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.)
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.
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.
