PIE ANOTHER DAY
You like pizza. Your date likes pizza. Michael Schwartz wins awards for making pizza. So maybe head to his Genuine Pizza in Aventura Mall and let him teach you how to make something both you and your date will like at his pizza-making class. Just spitballing ideas here.

Yellow Submarine turns 50 this year. Related: here’s your chance to go to O Cinema, dress up like a Peter Max-esque John, Paul, George or Ringo, watch the moptops’ flick and sing along while sipping cocktails in celebration of the trippy movie’s fifth decade. Other than that, pretty normal night.
When 40 or so farmers from the Redlands get together and create a next-day delivery box of locally grown, fresh-picked fruits and veggies like lychees, dragon fruit and guava, it’s almost like they know you’re planning an epic beach picnic where such things would be eaten al fresco. Well played, farmers. Well played.
Sometimes you just want an authentic, New Orleans-style brunch with things like Shreveport smoke gumbo, southern BBQ jerk chicken and bloodys. And since you don’t live in New Orleans, just head to the Balcony on Las Olas and pretend. The more bloodys, the more authentic it will feel.
We’re not saying it’s unbearably hot and humid in Miami. We’re just saying that the Conrad’s new summer Sunday pool party way up there on the 25th floor overlooking Brickell is probably a good idea. The tunes, the wine and the cocktails surrounding said event: also pretty fantastic ideas.
But who won? That’s what we’re trying to find out. Also, you may’ve noticed it’s warm outside. Hence, the state of the scoop: 13 incredible advents in ice cream. And finally, before you leave for your next big beach bonfire, make sure you check out this handy-dandy toolkit. (Sorry for saying “handy-dandy” just now.)
