8am: Start the day with an outdoor yoga class on the rooftop of the Mayfair Hotel and Spa. Feel the light beaming down as you flow through a sequence of sun salutations.

9am: Here on a Saturday? Stock up on produce at the Coconut Grove Farmers’ Market, put on by Glaser Organic Farms. Grab a coconut water to go.

10am: Make your way to Green Street Cafe for an epic brunch. Long waits are to be expected, but there is plenty of bar seating and an assortment of Bloody Marys to help pass the time. The Bloody María is deliciosa!

Noon: Pick up some cycling apparel at Dombe Cycling Culture, which is run by a group of riders and Lululemon vets who know performance gear. Then peruse the treasure trove of vintage designer apparel and accessories at the Fashionista Consignment Boutique.

2pm: For lunch, head to Farinelli 1937where you’ll find authentic Italian fare and pizzas from a wood-burning oven.

3pm: Get pierced! Commit to that septum ring you’ve been contemplating at New Age Body Piercing, consistently ranked as one of the city’s top studios.


5pm: Stroll through David T. Kennedy Park, a scenic place to picnic, watch boats float by and ogle dogs on walks with their people.

6pm: Unwind with a cocktail at Glass & Vine. Order the Bay View Spritz #2 (FOS Mastiha, citrus, mint and prosecco) and take a seat outside overlooking the park.

7pm: Feel the need, the need for mead? The Spillover features an assortment of this honey-based wine, plus incredibly fresh seafood dishes.

9pm: Cap off the night with a double scoop at Bianco Gelato, where every flavor is all-natural, organic and delicious. The pistachio is a standout.
