Have you heard the one about the interactive shots bar? You know...where you not only take a shot ... you are the shot? Neither did we -- until now. Allow us to explain.
Shots Miami co-owners Oscar Zapata and David Estrada (no relation to Erik -- we asked) felt that it wasn't enough to just do shots on a Friday with friends -- you had to get in there and live the shot, so they conceived Shots Miami, an interactive shots bar opening soon in Wynwood.
Here's how it works:
Choose your shot from their shot book. There are about 165 to choose from with names like
Rellenito, Crazy Cooch, Mani Culi Teteo, The Brain, Flash, O Shot,

Shots Miami will also serve

which are wines blended with fragrant herbs and other spirits. Sort of a
Shots Miami won't open for another six weeks, but
if you're looking for a preview, the gang is throwing a party in their
parking lot at 311 N.W. 23rd Street every Saturday starting tomorrow,
From 7 p.m. - 3 a.m., preview 20 of Shots Miami's offerings, including the Let's Go Heat! in celebration of our home
