Summer in Miami is upon us and that has our thoughts turning to Independence Day and barbeques.
What better way to celebrate the upcoming holiday than by having someone else fire up the grill and throw some burgers on it? Let's face it, it's hot in Miami in July and we'd rather leave the cooking to someone else so we can drink beer and look good.
That's why we're looking forward to the second annual Burger, Beer and BBQ Bash presented by the Miami Taste of Brickell Food & Wine Festival. Held at Miami Circle on Saturday, June 29, from 4 to 10 p.m., the event features some of the best culinary talent in Miami showcasing their signature burgers and barbecue.
And then there's VIP, which gets you into the fun at 3 p.m. for an extra hour of meaty pleasure. There's also the exclusive VIP tent that features a pig roast, complimentary beer, wine, and fine spirits -- all day and well into the evening!
Plus, there's live music, a car exhibit, a burger eating contest and pig races (because it's not a party without teeny little pink oinkers running around on a track).
Admission to the Burger, Beer and BBQ Bash is $10 general admission (pay for food and drinks as you go) or $65 for VIP (including extra hour and VIP tent access). Take advantage of our Voice Daily Deal and pay only $45. Click here to get your discounted tickets. But hurry, because the VIP tickets are limited and you don't want to miss this great summer event!
