Doomsday: Where To Eat Your Final Meal In Miami

With Christmas coming soon, we almost overlooked one minor detail. Doomsday is this Friday. Dun, dun, dun.

The Mayans finished their calendar with a last cycle ending on

December 21, 2012, which has fueled countless theories about the world ending on this date at precisely 11:11 (UTC). Make a wish ...

But before you go, you you'll need dinner. Lucky for you we've rounded up a few places that are celebrating the occasion. Be sure to make a reservation or plan accordingly so that even if the world is ruined, your dinner plans won't be.

Eating House

In playful celebration of a playful staff, Eating House is hosting a special End of the world Supper that will reflect the crews' last meal choices should they be wiped out at the end of the night's dinner service. The family style meal is priced at $40 per person excluding tax and gratuity and features the following five courses: taco's al pastor, garbanzo bean stew, fresh tagliatelle with butter & truffles, braised ox tail, and a jar of house-made Nutella. And because total destruction is nothing easy to cope with, Eating House is also offering 25 percent of all wine and beer to drink away all your final sorrows and regrets. A minimum of two people in a party are required for the family style meal, so if you're alone then looks like you're dying alone, and hungry.

T.G.I. Friday's

Fridays is really sticking to their motto, and who cares it's the end of the world. An off-site block party will be held on Lincoln Road at the 1111 Building. There will be a DJ and complimentary boneless chicken wings, hummus pita bread, pot stickers, and spinach artichoke dip. A Mayan margarita includes a special twist and is topped with strawberry pop rocks. The Ocean Drive location is also having a first and last happy hour in history since this location never has a happy hour. They will be 2-for-1 drinks, drafts, and house wines from 9 p.m till the end of the world (or midnight). All locations will offer a Last Friday Meal along with the tagline Make Your Final Meal, so go out with a full stomach. Included in this menu is the rib-eye to end all rib-eyes. Who said chain restaurants can't be original?
