Get Sprung: New Spring Break Beer Festival Announced

Okay, so maybe Miami is the only place on the planet not looking forward to a spring thaw (mainly because it's in the mid-80s outside and even the plastic snowman on the lawn has melted from the intense sun).

But that doesn't mean we can't look forward to the few things about spring we do best in South Florida -- namely spring break and drinking.

With that in mind, the people who have brought you Grovetoberfest in the fall, have just announced their latest festival -- Sprung!

On March 9, 2013, Coconut Grove's Peacock Park will turn into one giant frat party, complete with over 100 craft beers, live music, and an entire game area. "Games?" you say? Oh yes.

Games, as in, giant Jenga, corn hole, beer pong, bocce, and human bowling!

We, like you, are imagining the possibilities. Ticket prices and further details will be announced shortly.
