Happy Hour at City Oyster, Chef Demos at Macy's, Mondays at Tarpon Bend
• Macy's Home Store keeps on trucking this summer with a series of demos from local and celebrity chefs. On July 24, the Aventura Mall location will host Marko Krancher, chef at Acqua Restaurant at the Four Seasons Miami. Krancher, who's done pastry work at Four Seasons resorts across the globe, will show off treats such as his bittersweet chocolate angel food cake topped with warm chocolate milk chaser, espresso whip, and white Godiva chocolate anglaise. That demo is free and takes place at 1 p.m. Across town at the Dadeland Mall Macy's, chef Oscar Veneziani of concept store Crepemaker will show off his savory crepe technique. Same bat day, same bat time.
• Finally, Tarpon Bend is doing a Monday dealio on its famous "Big Cheese" burgers. The appropriately named sandwiches are going for $5 anytime after 5 p.m. One question remains: Can I gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today?
