There's no better way to start your week than with a burger. Head over to American Social for burger Mondays then get back on track Tuesday by visiting the new Whole Foods. That's right, there's a new giant shrine to healthful living downtown and you should really check it out. Already been there? Pretty sure you can still discover something new.
And just when you think you've hit your mid-week slump, let Proper Sausages help you out of it with their Wednesday happy hour that includes craft brews and their beloved links. Still got room for more? Khong River is celebrating the year of the goat with a seven-course feast. Yes, there are dumplings.
Week starts now.
Burger Night at American Social
Chances are you've had a beer or two at American Social, but have you tried their burgers? Do it tonight during the Brickell hotspots Monday burger and trivia night. Enjoy the signature AmSo burger (beef blend, American cheese, AmSo sauce, red oak, tomato, and vidalia onions on a toasted challah bun) for just $8 (it's $15 regularly). And if you happen to be there from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. you can also partake in trivia night, where you might just get a brew on the house.
Explore Whole Foods Downtown
Haven't been to the new Whole Foods in downtown yet? Well, get to it. Not only are there Cuban treats from Versailles (think tres leches and flan), but an outpost of Jugo Fresh for you to get your juice on. While you're at it, be sure to ask for a gratis tour where a healthy eating specialist will gear it to your dietary preferences.
Sausages & Beer at Proper Sausages
If you've always wished that Proper Sausages would have a links-and-suds happy hour, you're in luck. That's exactly what's happening every Wednesday night from 5 to 6:30 p.m.. Think four different brews (local of course) with a plethora of artisanal and organic franks for just $20. If that's no a reason to celebrate the middle of the workweek, we're not really sure what is.
Khong River Celebrates Chinese New Years
Chinese New Year celebrations aren't over just yet. The year of the goat kickoff continues at Khong River on Thursday with a seven-course prix-fixe feast that includes duck and foie gras soup dumplings, lion head soup, and sweet spring rolls. Dinner costs $75 per person.
