Top events to do Thursday: La Sopita Series, the Art of Food and Wine and Slava's SnowShow


Slava's SnowShow: There's no show like a snow show, especially here in the subtropics. For 90 minutes, including a 20-minute intermission, the show is a series of comic bits, some surreal, others just strange. Visually speaking, the performance is so wildly imaginative — from an enormous spider web to a tsunami of bubbles — it's easy to see it all comes from the mind of a Russian clown. 8 p.m. at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. $25-$75. 877-949-6722 or — Rod Stafford Hagwood

Wine Pairings

The Art of Food and Wine: Certified sommelier and wine educator Stephanie Miskew will head up the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale's ode to all the fine complexities of vino with a screening of the humorous documentary "Somm." The film follows a quartet of men prepping for a grueling test: the Master Sommelier exam. Think of them as wine wizards, a title Miskew will no doubt appreciate being called when she and a guest chef prepare food pairings on Thursday night. 6:30-9:30 p.m. $50. Call Gail Vilone at 954-262-0249 to RSVP beforehand, or visit — Phillip Valys


La Sopita Series: The new monthly concert series at the Performing Arts Exchange (PAX) truly works as an exchange: Every third Thursday, PAX invites a Colombian act to perform, preceded by locals working in a similar genre. This month will have five Thursdays, so La Sopita takes place on the fourth. The imported talent is Savan, a.k.a. Miguel Navas, an emerging electro-cumbia producer from Bogota. The supporting locals are punk band Tremends and Nacho Londono. $10 plus fees at 9 p.m. — Maria Murriel
