Things To Do

Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: Cat Cora, Pokemon Bar Crawl, and Last Call at S&S Diner South

Happy Friday! This weekend, chase down Pikachu in a booze-fueled frenzy, cool off with a beer-inspired frozen treat, and say goodbye to an iconic Miami breakfast spot.

Weekend starts now!
Shabbat at the Yard
Celebrate Shabbat in a unique way at the Wynwood Yard. Join new friends and break bread with OneTable, an organization that helps people "Shabbat together" for a Mediterranean-inspired dinner that includes eggplant tempeh moussaka, mango custard pie, and raw falafel with a toasted superfood arepa, macadamia hummus, probiotic tzatziki, and baba ghanouj. Of course, there's also Zak the Baker challah and wine, beer, and a hibiscus cocktail. Dinner costs $46 and begins at 7 p.m. today at the Wynwood Yard. Call 305-771-4810 or visit
Pokémon Pub Crawl at RedBar Brickell
The only thing more fun than walking around Miami in search of Charmander is doing it while drinking.
This Friday, Pokémon Go South Florida invites you to the Pokémon Go Pub Crawl Meetup. Beginning at RedBar Brickell (52 SW Tenth St., Miami) at 9 p.m., you'll be tasked with finding monsters as you travel from bar to bar. Admission is free, but pay as you go for drinks. 
Chef Cat Cora at Macy's Aventura
If you're dreaming of hosting a fabulous summer cookout, you won't want to miss Cat Cora at Macy's Home Store at Aventura Mall. This Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m., the celebrity chef will show you how to prepare some of her favorite dishes for a warm-weather cookout. If the chef inspires you to do a little shopping for cookery, you'll receive a copy of her memoir, Cooking as Fast as I Can with a $35 Home Store purchase. Admission is free, and if you RSVP via, you'll receive a $10 Macy's gift card at the event. 
Beer Ice Cream at Wynwood Brewing Company
When 305 Brews opens, the coffee- and beer-centric restaurant will feature one of mankind's best creations: beer ice cream. "If we could, we’d drink Pops Porter from Wynwood Brewing Company all day long. We’ve done the next best thing by creating an ice cream that’s all grown up," says Zeke Man, partner and manager of 305 Brews. If you'd like a taste of things to come, head to Wynwood Brewing Company this Sunday at 3 p.m. for free samples of Pops Porter ice cream while supplies last. 
Last Chance for Breakfast at S&S Diner South
For 60 years, S&S Diner South has welcomed families with its friendly staff and satisfying meals. This Sunday, the restaurant will close forever. There's still time, however, to have one last stack of pancakes and soak up the memories. 
Cirkopolis and Cocktails
Cirkopolis tells the tale of a dystopian city through acrobatics, dance, and music. The show, at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, runs through July 31, and tickets start at $25. Plus, the show has its own bespoke cocktails so you can drink in the experience in more ways than one.
