A New Wine Bar in Brickell

Brickell's new Bite Deli and Wine is the kind of round-the-clock neighborhood canteen we'd like to see more of. They've got coffee and croissants in the morning, baguettes stuffed with smoked meats for lunch, and cheese platters and wine after dark. Tip: go for the South American wine.

Now open with delivery, Bite Deli and Wine, 500 Brickell Ave, 786-329-3732

Friday
Gratis Tacos and Cocktails at Shore Club
PESCADO

Gratis Tacos and Cocktails at Shore Club

By tomorrow night, you'll already be knee-deep in the weekend's food-palooza and looking for a spot to kick back with a few fish tacos and well-mixed cocktails. Shore Club will be offering up both for free at this alfresco soiree. You're definitely going to want to sample the pisco sours and margaritas.

Feb 26, 8:30-10pm, Shore Club, 1901 Collins Ave, 305-695-3100, RSVP here

A Chef-Filled Cocktail Party at Mondrian

Later tomorrow night, you'll want to make your way over to a cabana at Mondrian's Sunset Lounge. Todd English and a slew of Top Chef alums will be there (so bring your celebrity chef autograph book), plus there'll be complimentary caipirinhas from 10-11pm and a DJ set from Zach Chodorow, who's like the Paul Oakenfold of the food world.

Mr. Yum Turns One

Your favorite Little Havana sushi spot is celebrating its first birthday this weekend the only way it knows how—with an Asian-Latin blowout. You'll pound free drinks and sushi from 7 to 9pm, and then at 10pm, you'll sit back and bask in the upbeat awesomeness of alternative rock band Locos Por Juana.

Feb 27, 6pm-midnight, Mr. Yum, 1945 SW Eighth St, 786-360-2371, RSVP here
