Cheap Eats

Bourbon and Blues -- Drink Up, Eat Right, Jam Out

Here's what you missed last night if you weren't at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club at Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak in Aventura: 25 percent off whiskey and bourbon from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. with live blues by local legend Albert Castiglia.

No problemo. They're doin' it again next week, and the featured band is Port Salerno's Americana/Roots troubadours Nouveaux Honkies.

You can also look forward to a new menu addition,

the Bourbon Bar Burgers, which come in lamb, beef, heritage turkey,

steak, salmon, falaffel veggie burger, or the market burger, which

allows you to choose a protein and add up to six toppings for your own

specialized burger. They also have half-bottles of wine specially paired with the burger

menu, three adult milkshakes, and their regular happy hour from 6 to 8 p.m.


But let's not forget why you're going in the first place: bourbon. Their extensive list includes

  • Maker's Mark at $12 a serving

  • Ancient Age, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, and Wild Turkey at $11 per serving
  • Pappy Van Winkle's 23 Year Family Reserve at $85 per serving

  • and A.H. Hirsch 16 Year Reserve at $60 per serving


Add on the Wednesday discount and you can have a relatively inexpensive

night out on the Upscale with live, drink-worthy music. When I get rich

in a few years, you might even see me there, one bourbon, one burger,

one beer.


Thanks to Bar Porter Milko Pomares for the additional info.
