Meet Mango Man for a Fruity Drink Weekends in July (Recipes)

Miami mango mania is about to reach new heights this weekend when Mango Man -- a guy in an orange polyester suit -- and Finlandia Vodka host two different mango invasion bar crawls every Saturday and Sunday in July.

Finlandia will host mango drink specials and promotions at two informal bar crawl routes, which means you can jump in any time you like and visit as many bars as you want.

For the bikini-clad mango lover who wants to sip a tropical cocktail après beach, the Ocean Drive crawl will run every Saturday and Sunday in July from 6 to 9 p.m., featuring drink specials and promotions at CJ's Crab Shack, Fat Tuesday, the Clevelander, Palace Bar, and Finnegan's Way.

If you're into strolling and strutting, the Lincoln Road route is open every Saturday and Sunday in July from 4 to 7 p.m. and features mango-infused cocktails at Enso, Dal Toro, Serendipity 3, Deco Drive Cigars, Rosa Mexicano, and Haven.

And yes, the Mango Man will be out and about in all his orange-clad glory, roaming the bars in search of fellow fruit (and polyester) lovers. If you see him, be sure to show him some love with a hug or a high-five, and maybe he'll buy you a drink!
