Thursday-Night Happy Hour at Verde
Verde, the indoor/outdoor restaurant at Pérez Art Museum Miami, is known for Third Thursday, when the museum offers free admission all day and throws a sunset bash in the evening. Now the restaurant will host happy hour every Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. It features $5 beer, $6 wine, and $7 cocktails on the restaurant's terrace. Enjoy live music by guest DJ Phaxas, who performs every Thursday except Third Thursday.
VeritageMiami Craft Beer Tasting at Wynwood Walls
In addition to offering food from local restaurants and beer from 140 breweries, this year's event includes arcade games, giant Jenga, and Connect Four in the Wynwood Garden. (For those new to the party, these are traditionally brew-fueled activities.) Plus, there'll be an afterparty at the Wynwood Yard. Money raised from the event benefits the United Way, an organization improving the health, education, and well-being of fellow Miamians.
