While the only crunch under your feet in Miami in “fall” is that of sand, and not fallen leaves, you know it’s beginning to look a lot like anything but summer when even the nightclubs get into football. Take the Shore Club’s storied Redroom, whose weekly party, the Sunday Play, transforms the den of debauchery into the world’s slickest mancave from noon until 7pm with TVs as big as some of the egos that have partied here. For those players who insist on getting their own game on, there’s free WiFi. And, best of all, an all-you-can-eat buffet of wings, hot dogs, and popcorn. All you can drink draft beer, sangria, and house wine is included in the cover, which is $50 for dudes and $35 for ladies.
For family fun that doesn’t involve animatronic rodents, the Perez Art Museum Miami is offering free admission from 1 to 4pm on the second Saturday of the month–that means tomorrow if you’re reading this on Friday. There, you and the brood can take guided tours, participate in all sorts of arty activities, and even attempt to make your own birdhouse in time to try to hawk it for millions at Art Basel.
Raise the Roof
If you’d rather watch paint dry than football, check out Touché Rooftop Lounge’s Wednesday night ode to old Hollywood, Miami Noir, where black and white’s the new black in the form of films made before anyone realized Lucy was a redhead. Movies roll at 10pm and there’s a special menu as well as special cocktails that may or may not match the movie–in theme, not color, we hope.
For those needing neither themes nor occasions to tip back some bubbly, Moët & Chandon is pouring like 4pm on a typical Miami summer day during Toro Toro Miami’s Thursday night happy hour. And whether you pronounce it Mo-ET (correct) or Mo-AY (cute), it matters not. What matters is what time you arrive. Get there at 7pm and you’ll pay $7. At 8pm the price goes up a buck. Same happens at 9pm. In other words, get there early. And while champagne priced by the hour is swell, there’s nothing better than free wine, pouring Tuesday nights at (petit) Miami. There’s a catch though, of course. It’s free only if you’re female. And with females. And sitting down and eating. But still. The wine’s free as long as you’re eating. Eat slowly.
