The Weekend Guide

This weekend winter blossoms into spring. Nobody here notices.

TASTE
Cavas
What:
The new bar has a machine that dispenses temp-controlled wine by the ounce or glass. Buy a debit card, insert, and taste the rotating selection.

When:
Sun.-Thurs., 11 a.m.-11 p.m.; Fri. & Sat., 11 a.m.-midnight.
Where: 437 Espanola Way (305-534-3352).

DRINK
The Tap Project
What:
