If you woke up this morning with the Monday blues but still made it to your 9-to-5, Coya has something for you: Industry night. Come celebrate at the Peruvian hotspot with other Miami professionals who can all relate to the struggle of a Monday work day.
And that's just Monday. Mignonette is teaming up with J. Wakefield Brewery for an exclusive one-night-only seafood and beer pairing dinner on Tuesday, Miami Beach's Bagatelle has wine night on Wednesday, and Telemundo chef James Tahhan will be at SushiSamba's Robata Grill on Thursday. All we have to say is yum.
Industry night at Coya
We know Mondays are tough. But would a celebration at the end of your work day make it a bit better? Coya thought so. From 6 to 9 p.m., the pisco bar is calling all "industry people" who work hard and want to play hard too. So basically, anyone with a job who wants to party after they clock out can head over. A menu with specialty cocktails starting at $10, Taittinger champagne by the glass for $12, and a range of Peruvian bar bites will be offered. And live Latin music starts at 7 p.m. too.

Bacchanal Wednesdays at Bagatelle Miami Beach
Treat yourself for making it halfway through the week by sipping on some bubbly, or having a glass of merlot or malbec. Bagatelle's entire wine and champagne list is 50 percent off tonight, with no corkage fee. Want to bring your own bottle? That works too. Outside wines are welcome at no extra cost. So whether you're in need of a midweek drink, or looking to finish that bottle from last weekend, Bagatelle says come on over any time between 7 p.m. through midnight.
