Is it just us, or is it almost impossible not to spend most weekends in the Grove? Even if we start our night in South Beach, the lights, the people, and the tiki-tiki music are just too much, so we end up U-turning to the Grove for a beer. It’s an all-around great place to spend the evening, with so many options for restaurants and bars: GreenStreet, George’s, Oasis, etc. Clearly the Coconut Grove Chamber of Commerce feels the same way, because it’s presenting the Great Taste of the Grove: Food & Wine Festival. The annual fundraiser, which has seen crowds of more than 30,000, brings food, wine, and music together in a waterfront setting.
