Say "happy Monday" with new happy-hour offerings at various Miami eateries. If you're in Wynwood, head to Kyu; if you're near Miami Beach, try the Mondrian's new pop-up Hurao's weekday specials or the Continental's offerings, like cheesesteak egg rolls and $5 cocktails.

Eat a sub Wednesday at Jersey Mike's Subs, where all the day's profits will go toward the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation in honor of the sandwich chain's annual Day of Giving.

End the week watching a hermit crab race while enjoying bar bites and drinks, including perros, chicken kebabs, and ribs, at Cafeina's Krabtucky Derby.

Eat a Sub at Jersey Mike’s Subs and Help a Charity
Hump day is Jersey Mike’s Subs' Day of Giving, which means 100 percent of the proceeds will go toward one of 17 local charities. For all Miami-Dade locations, proceeds will be donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. In 2015, Jersey Mike’s locations in Florida raised nearly $260,000 for the campaign, and the nationwide initiative raised more than $3 million for 150 local charities. The 2016 goal is $3.5 million for more than 180 local charities.
