Miami gets crazy this time of the year. Which is why we've teamed up with Nordstrom to help you do it right. Here's the inside tip on Mami's hottest holiday activities, paired up with the latest style picks from Nordstrom Men's Shop, so you can put together the perfect look for all your holiday plans.


Party Like an Egyptian: NYE at Kitchen 305
 
Escape the traditional holiday cheer with a New Year's Eve soiree featuring less sparkle and more sand: Cleopatra's Ball.
 
Wild night: The restaurant will transform into an Egyptian sanctuary complete with belly dancers, fire breathers, snake charmers and four DJs.

Nordstrom Men's Shop makes it easy: A fitted blazer paired with straight leg jeans is not just classy, but ready to party. Get it here.
 
16701 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach (305-749-2110). From $30 here.

Nearby: Rice Asian House & Sushi Bar; Timo; El Tropico




Spirited Sips: The Dasher's Delight at The Hoxton
 
It takes a bit of holiday magic to get into the spirit sans snow. A bit more spirits that is, in the form of a festive cocktail now being served at The Hoxton.
 
Tipsy reindeer: The Dasher’s Delight is not nearly as tame as the name suggests. Bosc pears, bourbon, lemon, cinnamon and maple syrup are topped with bitters and garnished with lemon zest and mint.
 
Nordstrom Men's Shop makes it easy: Keep things classy with slim fit corduroys. Dress them up with a paisley blazer, and you're fully prepared for wherever your evening may take you. Get it here.

Holy Hangover: 
Christmas Cruise

 
Too much eggnog on Xmas Eve will leave you in need of some fresh air on Xmas Day.
 
The fix: Take to the water on The Biscayne Lady for her annual dinner cruise - complete with a saxophone payer, full buffet and three bars.
 

Nordstrom Men's Shop makes it easy: Sail in style with a Lubaim blazer and V-neck sweater vest. Get it here.

Wild Side: Zoo Lights

The king of the jungle. You've seen him. Take a second look at your favorite jungle creatures when they are illuminated by thousands of twinkle lights.

Miami Zoo gets a holiday overhaul during Zoo lights, and if the fuzzy animals still aren't thrilling, sip on hot chocolate while your girlfriend poses with Santa.


Nordstrom Men's Shop makes it easy:  Pair this not-your-Dad's-Christmas sweater from Nudie with a Pendleton plaid shirt and J Brand jeans to stay warm and toasty while you're on the ice. Get it here.

Faux Snow:

Dreaming of a white christmas? It comes with 100 rickety rides and a few fake Santas sitting on all of that artificial powder.

The annual Enchanted Forest is back to put your holiday in hyperdrive with bumper cards, a ferris wheel and food on sticks.
