Ah, autumn in South Florida! The weather somehow gets even hotter; the Marlins are through teasing us with a 2003 redux; and it's time for a sport this county actually excels in: road rage.
But football is back, too, and the legions of Miami Hurricane fans (slightly diminished since so many people have jumped on the Urban Meyer bandwagon) are ready to purge the post-Ed Reed demons and get back to 1980s glory.
What better way than beating up on intrastate faux-rival Florida State? You know, that team that scours the country every year to find the one high school kicker who will make every single kick of his collegiate career...except the one that matters?
Since the game's up in Tallahassee, AKA the North Pole, head over to the Sandbar in Coconut Grove where they'll be serving half-priced tacos all day in honor of the Labor day UM-FSU match-up. The game starts at 8 p.m., but get there before 7 p.m. to enjoy the happy hour specials. And don't forget to wear orange and green.
