It helps to stick with what you know as you expand your repertoire: Mark Wahlberg produced Entourage, based on his wild life, and also starred in Rock Star, based on sucking wildly at music. For a resto that really knows its meat, hit up Graziano's in Brickell.
There's also a light summer menu including Seattle mussels in a leek wine sauce, bay scallops involtini in ciboulette, and an artisan cheese plate with hard, aged stuff like Manchego Pasamontes, and softies like blue Stilton and burratina di buffalo, all of which'll help you stick to what you know: sucking wildly at not being fat.
View the menu vastness here. Graziano’s also hosts a free wine tasting every Thursday night from 6:30PM to 9PM.

It's not Eminem, not hardly. It's Asher Roth, the suburban white rapper who (thank the Maker) doesn't waste listeners' time rhyming about how he came up the hard way in Morrisville, PA. Instead, he rhymes about college parties, pizza slices and other innocuous details of middle class life. Check him out at Mansion Friday night.
So Raw Music Festival
At the last music festival you attended, you ate suspicious baked goods and heard tons of great tunes.
But they were inside your head.
For live local music, there’s this weekend’s inaugural So Raw Festival: seventeen garage-rock bands playing over two days. A local art collect
ive — three college students who want to showcase raw talent in Miami — is
throwing the event.
There’ll be local bands (Jacuzzi Boys, Teepee, Electric Bunnies), along with out-of-state up-and-comers like The Yolks and Pink Reason. (Never heard of them? That’s kind of the point.) Also on hand: works by local artists and all-you-can-drink Select Vodka and beer (or BYO).
The night shows will be at the ISM Gallery in Wynwood, and Saturday afternoon’s affair is at the UES Garden. A weekend pass is just $18.
The price won’t mushroom.
