This week, spend any evening at the Forge without having to find a designated driver. Receive complimentary car service to and from the iconic Miami Beach eatery. The restaurant has partnered with car service miRide, giving all diners who make a reservation the opportunity to request round-trip private transportation.

Also, try Pao by Paul Qui's sundown social menu, featuring plates such as crispy pig ears and lumpia with sparkling wine, oysters, and caviar. Wednesday evening, the Fontainebleau will host a cocktail-making class, teaching guests the secret of making a great drink. End the week with a cocktail at Brickell's Komodo, which launched an all-new drink menu.

Complimentary Car Service for Diners at the Forge
