Only five more days till the weekend is back, but plenty to do this week. Like buckets of beer hand picked by Gravity Brew Lab's Diego Ganoza paired with Jose Mendin's McBellly, learning to make the perfect mojito at TK's, and two dollar cocktails for the ladies at SuViche (sorry fellas).

Also happening: Winter Wonderlamb, which is exactly what it sounds like -- a winter lamb soiree.

What are you waiting for? Week starts now.

Pubbelly is giving fans a new way to experience the gastropub's craft beer list and hearty menu through a series dubbed "Pubbelly Beer Bucket," where the Boys invite a curator of brews to pick five beers. For November, Gravity Brew Lab's Diego Ganoza has elected Founder Porter's, Nouva Mattina, Holy Gose, Self-Righteous and Maduro Brown to form his bucket, which costs $30.

TK's Tasting Menu and Mixology Lesson

If you don't feel like cooking and want some schooling, Tk's at Villa Mayfair will take care of both thanks to a new chef tasting menu with a side of mojito mixology. Every Tuesday and Saturday at 7 p.m. a four-course dinner priced at $49 per person will kick off with a lesson in mojito making, courtesy of bar keep David Ungar. In addition to the mojito you'll be making, an additional mojito crafted by Ungar will accompany your choice between tuna tartare or beef carpaccio, roasted baby beet salad or baby spinach salad, spice rub bison sirloin or catch of the day, and vanilla mousse cheesecake or peanut butter mousse. Decisions decisions.

Dark Dining Miami

Eating With a Blindfold at Chef Adrianne's

Chef Adrianne Calvo likes to keep her diners in the dark --literally and figuratively. Her monthly themed Dark Dining does just that. Not only will you be blindfolded as you eat in a dimly lit restaurant reminiscent of wine country, but Calvo likes to play tricks on the palate too, using ingredients that can be confused for something similar. This month's theme? The Hamptons. We're not really sure what kind of food that is, but apparently you'll be able to "savor some of the Kennedy's favorites and learn why Jackie O was one of Julia Child's favorite fans." Dinner is paired with wine. Not sure yet of the cost. Starts at 7:30 p.m.

Two Dollar Cocktails for Ladies at SuViche

A new ladies happy hour is launching at SuViche Wynwood this Thursday, and it includes $2 cocktails. The Hungry Post girls are behind the femme evening, which is being coined as "Cheers to the Lipstick." Ladies can enjoy two-dollar cocktails, bites, and beats by local DJs from 7 p.m. to close. The only requirement? You gotta wear orange lipstick. OK, you don't really have to, but it's the theme (#orangeisthenewred) to go along with SuViche's orange zest, so play along will ya?
