It's not easy having eyes all over the scene, being around to take in all the wild visuals at all the worthwhile places in the city. There are, however, those parties and gallery openings where a fortunate photographer can point and shoot. Every week, in collaboration with WorldRedEye, New Times brings you a solid recap of all the recent experiences you may have missed around Miami. It's impossible to be everywhere, but hey, we can try to keep our Eyes on Miami.

D’usse Dinner Series Celebrates the Retirement of NBA All-Star Elton Brand at Komodo: NBA All-Star and Olympian Elton Brand celebrated the announcement of his retirement prior to the beginning of the 2016-17 season with the Philadelphia 76ers at Miami hot spot Komodo, hosted by the D’usse Dinner Series. Brand and the entire 76ers team, including Jahlil Okafor, Gerald Henderson, Nerlins Noel, Robert Covington, Joel Embiid, and Nik Stauskas, took over the mezzanine of Komodo to toast and celebrate the career of the veteran player with a four-course meal, each paired with a specialty D’usse cocktail. The team enjoyed signature dishes such as beef jerky and lime chicken before capping the meal with a towering dessert of bananas in a pagoda. They also hoisted a special toast over a sifter of D’usse XO, the newest edition to the D’usse Cognac collection. As the team gathered to leave with D’usse gift bags in hand, they circled Brand for an impromptu dance party, reminiscent of their locker-room escapades, as a final sendoff for their retired teammate.
