Weekends are a great time to explore.
Why not get the squad together and try something new? Whether it's drinking in a cave or channeling your inner child by making your own art-inspired snow cone, there's a tasty new experience waiting for you. Here are five places to have a culinary adventure.
1. Make a Custom Snow Cone With New Exhibit-Inspired Menu at PAMM
The time has come again: Verde's executive chef, Kaytlin Dangaran, has debuted her latest exhibit-inspired menu. Celebrating Pérez Art Museum Miami's display of Argentine artist Julio Le Parc's work, Dangaran presents South American cuisine in a playful and interactive way.
2. Brickell's La Cueva Tequila Bar to Open Just in Time for Trump's Inauguration
Depending upon your political views, drinking tequila could be a sign of celebration or an escape from reality. Or it could be that you're drinking tequila at La Cueva, a new Mexican cave-themed bar located at 1111 SW First Ave. in the heart of Brickell. Meaning "the cave" in Spanish, La Cueva is a bar that specializes in all things tequila, mezcal, and the myriad cocktails containing those two spirits.
3. NYC's the Halal Guys Celebrates Davie Grand Opening With Free Food and Prizes

5. The Salty Donut and Knaus Berry Farm's Sticky-Bun Doughnut Collab Returns
