Monday

Bocce Ball Chef Tournament at Bocce Bar

Bocce Bar is putting its outdoor bocce court to good use with a chefs' tournament. The second round kicks off today and happens every Monday for the next seven weeks. 1826 Lounge, Edge Steak & Bar, MC Kitchen, Michael Mina 74, the Forge, Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, and Shikany will compete for bragging rights and title of bocce king or queen. Shikany and Edge will battle it out tonight. Come November 24, the final teams will try to steal the throne from the inaugural tournament's winner, Salumeria 104. Game time is 5 to 8 p.m., just in time for Bocce's happy hour. Double-whammy!

Tuesday

Master Sommerlier Rob Bigelow at BLT Prime

Out of all the sommeliers in the world, only 219 hold the title of master sommelier. And on Tuesday, one of them will pour six vintage wines to accompany a five-course dinner. Master sommelier Rob Bigelow of Chateau St. Michelle, who formerly served as sommelier at Bellagio & Aria in Las Vegas, is making his mark at BLT Prime in Doral. Chef de cuisine Dustin Ward's menu includes oysters with caviar, rabbit confit, halibut, New York strip, sweetbreads, and a "3D" crème brûlée. If you like food and wine, make reservations (they are required) by calling 305-573-0658. Dinner costs $150 per person excluding tax and gratuity.
