Your New Classy Happy-Hour Option
SEVEN BUCKS

Your New Classy Happy-Hour Option

There is the temptation to wile away your happy hours at some of the less swanky establishments around town. But when the Raleigh comes along and says they're going to make just about everything $7, from the valet to the vodka cocktails to the tuna sashimi sandwiches and aged cheddar sliders, you may want to consider aiming a bit higher.

Every day starting Mar 11, 5-8pm, The Raleigh, 1775 Collins Ave, 305-534-6300

A Smorgasbord at the InterContinental
EATING FOR HAITI

A Smorgasbord at the InterContinental

It's a night you may have been dreaming about: a walk-around tasting where 15 of Miami's best cooks (including chefs from Pacific Time, the Setai and Timo) will be doling out gourmet bites along with glasses of wine and vodka. And because all of the proceeds go to International Firefighters Assistance in Haiti, everybody wins.

Saturday
French Pop Band Air at the Fillmore
SYNTH

French Pop Band Air at the Fillmore

It's not often we're privy to performances from this French electronic duo, most famous for their soundtrack work on Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides. In fact, this is their first-ever Florida appearance—and it's up to you to make it a positive one. Seriously, this is all on you, Mike.

Sunday
Free Yoga and Pool Passes at the Viceroy
STRETCH

Free Yoga and Pool Passes at the Viceroy

The downward dog lovers at Green Monkey are hosting a yoga party—okay, a complimentary yoga class—at the Spa at the Viceroy this Sunday. Afterwards, you can stick around and lounge in the spa (best spot: Roman hot tubs) and the outdoor pool deck. And if you do brunch at Eos, you'll get a free glass of bubbly. Champagne is thirst aid.

Breaking Up Your Pattern at Sakaya
DIM SSAM

Breaking Up Your Pattern at Sakaya

We love the all-American brunch. But sometimes, as with all things in life, you gotta go Asian. Midtown's newest pork bun den is rolling out an epic Sunday menu (with half portions from $2 to $5) packed with Scallion Waffle Topped With Korean Fried Chicken, Honey Orange Pork Ribs and Korean Oyster Taco with kimchi. Oyster tacos are the new fish tacos.

Sundays starting Mar 14, 11am-3pm, Sakaya Kitchen, Buena Vista Ave, 305-576-8096
