Christmas and Hanukkah are next weekend, and the mad dash to finish shopping, enjoy holiday parties, and prep for some serious family time is in full swing.
From dining on Christmas Eve to braving the malls and shopping local, here are five stories to assist you in navigating the holiday season.
1. Beyond the Food Courts, Where to Dine at Miami's Malls
They say don't shop on an empty stomach or you'll leave the grocery store with a cart full of food you won't eat. Does the same rule apply to holiday gift shopping? Malls are crowded, parking is stressful, and unless you have a stockpile of snacks, you need a few good food options to stay fueled and fight the holiday chaos. From Lincoln Road to Dadeland, malls are amping up their food offerings to keep holiday shoppers sated. Mall shopping doesn't have to mean grabbing a soft pretzel or some slop at the food court. Sophisticated dining options abound. From French bistros to upscale burger joints, here are the best mall dining options in Miami.
