To recognize Breast Cancer Awareness month, ULTA Beauty is sponsoring its annual Cut-A-Thon from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at 337 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. For a minimum of $10 (or more, depending on our generosity), you can get a cut, shampoo and style — and, most importantly, support a good cause. Here’s the best part: 100 percent of the proceeds go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
With election season in full swing, you can sip and support your favorite presidential candidate by heading to 7-Eleven. The convenience store retailer is selling cups of java — red for Mitt Romney, blue for President Barack Obama. Every four years, 7-election mixes the politics and coffee business, making the custom cups and tracking customer’s votes through their purchases, a highly unscientific and surprisingly accurate poll. They actually called the winner the last three elections.
Did you know it’s National Pasta Week? We didn’t, either — mostly because we believe every week should be National Pasta Week. But Cafe Prima Pasta knows better, so the Miami Beach restaurant is celebrating with “7 Deadly Pasta Sins” — seven dishes you can eat for $7 this week. There’s a different dish for each day, so you can try fettuccine carbonara Monday and linguini al pesto on Friday. Check each day’s special at cafeprimapasta.com — and viva Italy.
Turn out the lights and get ready to white-knuckle your way through Sunday night: AMC’s The Walking Dead returns at 10 p.m. Our band of heroes lost a few members last season, but Sheriff Rick Grimes ( Andrew Lincoln) is back to lead the survivors of the zombie apocalypse to safety — or possibly to their bloody, horrible deaths. On this show, it could go either way. Fans of the original comics say this season should be the show’s best, so tune in if you dare.
