When the sun goes down, it’s time to unwind, and that can have different meanings for all of us. One thing is for sure: whatever it is you’re in the mood for this month, we’ve got a lot to keep you busy. If it’s a relaxed vibe you desire, why not watch a show at Faena? If its action you crave, dance all night at Margaritaville or solve a murder. This month, as the sun sets, dress sharp and get ready to forget the woes of the daytime…escape into the night!
Legend Has It…
Zuma’s Contemporary Japanese Cuisine has earned quite a name for itself. This restaurant currently has eleven worldwide locations due to its popularity, and now it’s about to stir up even more of a buzz. This year is Zuma’s seventh anniversary, and they’re celebrating in a big way. Their new series, Lucky Gods Cocktail Collection, is inspired by the 7 Gods of Fortune. In Japan, the number is one of significance because of its ties to the Gods; they are believed to grant good luck. Each cocktail will be presented in hand-crafted, decorative vessels that resemble the deities and their values. If you want to feel lucky, come to Zuma this month for this beautiful, creative series!

Be amazed and become captivated as you sit back at Faena’s elegant theater this month for their new show: Sensatia. This show is an interactive multimedia, multi-sensory performance that sets out to “stimulate and stir the senses.” It fuses film, music, perfumery and culinary arts to bring you a show you’ve certainly never seen before. The show runs until November 25th with show times Thursdays at 9pm, Fridays at 9pm, and Saturdays at 9pm and 11pm. If you want to enjoy a delicious meal while watching the show, there’s dinner show options on Fridays and Saturdays both at 8pm.
