Picks of the Week – February 17

Bordeaux MatchMaking Wine Tasting, Feb. 18 — Gather your single wine-loving friends (and a sweater or two) and head on down to La Cote at Fontainebleau Miami Beach. This Thursday, from 7:30 – 9:30, La Cote will be hosting a VIP matchmaking Bordeaux wine tasting and party. This open air restaurant (I know, dress warm.) will feature some fabulous French wines and throw in some education along the way. The wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres start at 7:30 and DJ Mark Centennial will get the actual party started at 9:30 pm. La Cote is located at Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 4441 Collins Ave. There is no cost to attend, but you do need to get on the guest list, as space is limited.

It’s time to get erotic on Feb. 19 – This time, the destination is the brand new club in Gulfstream Park called MI-VI from Gerry Kelly. On Feb. 19, Erotic Signature, publisher of a collection of erotic books, will be hosting a release party for The World’s Greatest Erotic Art of Today, Volume 3. Your erotic night will be filled with live art, bodypainting, Shibari demos, Shadow Dancing, Sexy Burlesque and more. Proceeds will benefit Life is Art — to support the sofla art scene. The party starts at 10 pm on Feb 19. You can get in free before midnight by using the password “EROGENOUS” MI-VI is located at Gulfstream Park & Casino, 901 S Federal Hwy in Hallandale Beach.

On Feb. 22, one of my favorite Fort Lauderdale restaurants, Valentino’s, will host an extraordinary PerryMoore Wine Dinner. Chef Giovanni Rocchio may look more like a rock star than a chef, buy you can’t deny his authentic Italian cuisine is some of the best around. The menu features Fresh Maine Lobster with roasted fennel and vanilla in a puff pastry; escargot with roasted chestnuts; confit and duck breast with wild mushroom farro; and more. Cost is $145 all-inclusive. Valentino’s is located at 1145 N Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. 954.523.5767
