It's Monday and we're not the least bit sad. Sure it's the end of the weekend and the start of the work week, but we can take it. After all, we're champions people!
The city celebrates today with a parade for our Miami Heat and the rest of the country groans and drinks their bitter hater-ade. You, on the other hand, have something sweeter in store. We're revealing one of Dishcrawl's secret locations for tomorrow's event and cluing you in on some sweet deals going on around town this week too.

Dishcrawl: Discovering Midtown & Beyond!
After a couple events, Dishcrawl has gotten into a good food groove. This walking tour features different neighborhoods and restaurants, which usually remain secret until the event. But we know this: Today's event is all about Midtown and will tour four restaurants for $45. Pictured above is a sexy plate of BBQ from Pride & Joy. This lovely tray of ribs, brisket and mac is just one of the four courses you'll be eating on this walking tour for foodies. Get your tickets and info here.

The Upstairs Bar at Swine
There's nothing in particular going on each Thursday at Swine in Coral Gables, but that doesn't mean you aren't in for a special treat. Voted Miami's Best Bartender by all of you, Swine's head boozehound Robert Ferrera is not to be missed. Call it a 'thirsty Thursday' and pony up to the upstairs bar and prepare to be delighted. Don't expect douche-baggery here, Rob doesn't take himself as seriously as his cocktails. Friendly and fast, you'll be surprised how quickly a crafted cocktail appears in front of you. Come early, the man has a following for a reason.
Hidden Kitchen at Blackbird Ordinary
Enjoy $5 eats from the man who feeds the Heat. Head to Blackbird Ordinary for Early Bird Friday's and grab some serious grub from Michael B. Jacobs. Known for his work as the Heat's chef, Jacobs is one of the hardest working chefs in the biz. Grab some of his tasty creations like truffled mac-n-cheese with brisket bark for only $5.
