Shouldn't this be "Mjete se hezky vikend!"?

Not exactly. Right is "Hezký víkend" or "Mějte hezký víkend."

I respectfully disagree.

You can say either Hezký víkend. = '(Have a) nice weekend.' or Přeji ti/vám/vám hezký víkend. = 'I wish you (sg informal/sg formal/plural) a nice weekend.'

Mějte hezký víkend doesn't sound right. It's an anglicism (a word/expression borrowed from English) and although you can sometimes hear it in spoken Czech, it's something that is very sub-standard and it should not be used, uttered or even thought of. :)

Is "mějte" connected to the Russian "имейте" as a polite imperative, meaning "please have"?

Dobry vikend is no wrong?

Reading the comments, they explained it's an expression, you have to say "Hezký víkend".
