Miami locals have nearly year-round access to sun and sand, but strangely enough, some activities — like outdoor partying and barbecuing — are generally reserved for summer. Well, Independence Day is right around the corner, and now that summertime has officially arrived, what better way to celebrate the solstice than by having someone else fire up the grill and do all the dirty work?
This Saturday is the second annual Burger, Beer & BBQ Bash presented by the Miami Taste of Brickell Food & Wine Festival. Held at the Miami Circle (401 Brickell Ave., Miami), the event features some of the best culinary talents in Miami showcasing their signature burgers and barbecue. You’ll have seven hours to sample specialties from more than 20 local eateries, as well as craft beer and unlimited wine and spirits at the open bar. For those who could use more time to pack it all in, there’s the VIP option, which grants you access to the fun at 3 p.m. for an extra hour of meaty epicureanism.
Get your burger, beer, and barbecue on from 4 to 10 p.m. Admission costs $10 for general admission (pay for food and drinks as you go) or $65 for VIP (including the extra hour and VIP tent access). Call 305-200-8892 or visit tasteofbrickell.com.
