The Black Lords at Lords South Beach, 11 a.m.-2 a.m.
Artist Desi Santiago teams up with Perrier, BOFFO and Lords South Beach for a work of public art as big as a building: The ravenous black dog, Gypsy, complete with laser eyes, smoke, and oversize pink-clawed paws, takes over the hotel and is Santiago’s largest work to date.
Where: 1120 Collins Ave., Miami Beach.

Pop-Up Piano Concert, 8:30-11:30 p.m.
Tickle the ivories of artist-designed pianos before they hit the streets for Basel. Plus, hear special performances by Yuna and Elew at the fundraising concert, where tickets ($100 at popuppianomiami2012.eventbrite.com) benefit Friends of the New World Symphony and Kimbanguist Symphony Orchestra. Be prepared to hire a mover — an Alexander Mijares piano is up for grabs via silent auction.
Where: The Perry South Beach, 2377 Collins Ave., Miami Beach.

Consign of the Times Pop-Up, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.
Appreciate the art of a good bargain? Shop Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermès, and Céline at up to 75 percent off when the chichi consignment boutique opens for the week in the Design District. DailyCandy readers can enter code 10OFF at checkout for a 10 percent discount through December 31.

Boutique by Raneytown, 6-10 p.m.
Madewell joins forces with art haven Primary Projects for a pop-up spotlighting Rebecca Raney’s limited-edition collection. Think silk tops, cashmere sweaters, pendant necklaces, and leather totes with her quirky designs. (R.S.V.P. to rsvp@primaryprojectspace.com.)
Where: Primary Projects, 4141 NE 2nd Ave., ste. 104.

GuyandGirl, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
The stylish hotel boutique gives away free tickets to Scope — the art fair complete with VH1 Outdoor Lounge (for ear candy to give your eyes a break) — when you buy a piece from featured designers Aquarius (beach-to-street styles) or Shandi Levy (jewelry).
Where: 1801 Collins Ave., Miami Beach.

ShopBazaar, 11 a.m.
Peruse the pages of Harper’s Bazaar in person at the pop-up brimming with editor picks, one-on-one styling consultations, a Pop of Color mobile app (shop by shade), and an interactive video wall that makes the pages of the mag larger than life. Refresh with juice shots by Jugo Fresh and a beauty bar.
Where: Buena Vista Building, 180 NE 39th St.

Chromatics, 8 p.m.
Opening act Prince Rama, a two-piece art-rock band, sets the mood for what’s to come — a sure-to-be electric set from the Portland group (Stream Kill for Love before you go).
Where: Gusman Center for the Performing Arts, 174 E. Flagler St.

El Mini Market, 2-6 p.m.
Between fairs, slip over to Wood Tavern. Shop local jewelry designers and art; peruse vintage clothes and a record exchange. Or take a load off at a picnic table with a beer and DJ tunes.
Where: 2531 NW 2nd Ave.

Havaianas Luna Park, 5 p.m.
Catch the final of an out-of-this-world soccer tournament when teams of artists, collectors, curators, gallerists, and art critics play on a replica of the lunar landing site of Apollo 11 designed by French art duo Kolkoz. The installation, which transforms the beach into an otherworldly surface, raises awareness of pollution and beach erosion. Don’t worry about getting sand in your shoes: Havaianas hands out free flip-flops.
Where: Collins Park, Collins Ave., b/t 21 & 22nd Sts., Miami Beach.

YogArt, 9-10:30 a.m.
You’re going to have to detox at some point. Start at Dawn B’s Jivamukti class, a vinyasa flow practice for all levels ($30 at yogartevent.com). Get in a good stretch and see the latest murals adorning Wynwood Walls while taking in tunes from DJ Drez and The Mayapuris.
Where: NW 2nd Ave., b/t 25th & 26th Sts.
