Four Best Things to Eat and Drink In Miami This Weekend
It's that time of the week again!
In a few short hours you'll be packing up your stuff, shutting down your computer, and leaving your work problems in the chair behind you. Or, that's what you should be doing, at least. If leaving your worries behind you is a little bit of a problem for you, we can totally help.
Check out our list of the four best things to eat and drink in Miami this weekend. Busy yourself with this stuff and you'll forget about everything else until Monday.
Friday Night Happy Hour: It's Friday. You know the drill. The work week was rough. The rain yesterday didn't help. Did you get soaked, too? Shitty rain. You know what would make it all better? Some beer. $2.50 beer, that is. One Bal Harbour's serving up half priced draft beer from 4 to 6 p.m. The menu offers tasty snacks, too, like champagne, wine, and frozen cocktails. You should get in on that.
Miami International Wine Fair: We're getting heartburn just thinking about all that red wine. But don't let that stop you from popping a Tums and heading over to the Miami International Wine Fair on Saturday! If you're still sitting on your decision, you should probably be calculating the time spent -- after all, that's valuable Malbec-drinking time ticking away.
Love & Vegetables: We like love. We also like vegetables. Sounds like a good plan, right? Earth 'N' Us Farm is hosting its first third Saturday vegan food event and you're invited! It's kind of a cool gig. Dinner's at 6 p.m. and instead of putting a price on the meal, guests are simply asked to "pay what they can." Earning you meal may include picking herbs from the garden or scrubbing your dishes, but either way, it's a pretty neat concept.
Miami Spice:The clock is ticking away. Two more weeks until Miami Spice is gone until 2013. Where haven't you visited? You should probably make a list, that way you can use these last 14-or-so days wisely.
