The Salty Donut/Lee Schrager Breakfast Doughnut
Wynwood's favorite doughnut spot and South Beach Wine & Food Festival founder Lee Schrager have teamed up for a special breakfast-inspired doughnut to celebrate Schrager's latest book, America’s Best Breakfasts: Favorite Local Recipes From Coast to Coast. This limited-edition treat will be sold at the Salty Donut's pop-up this Saturday and Sunday only. The doughnuts will be available from 11 a.m. till they sell out each day. A percentage of the proceeds will benefit the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, and Schrager will match the Salty Donut's donation to double the amount going to the medical center. If you're wondering what flavor the special doughnut will be, you'll have to wait until tomorrow — Schrager and Salty are taste-testing several varieties right now and will unveil the winner then.

The Abbey Brewing Company Turns 21
Long before craft beer was a thing in Miami, there was the Abbey. Miami Beach's oldest and only brewpub will turns 21 this Sunday, June 26, with a giant celebration that runs from 8 a.m. through the night (just as any 21-year-old would celebrate). From 10 to 11 a.m., enjoy an open bar of draft beers and well booze. After that, beer, mixed drinks, and shots cost $6 for the rest of the day. And $16 gets you a commemorative stainless-steel drinking vessel and one beer.
