Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend

The only suitable question for this Short Order weekend guide is: Do you feel lucky?

Well, do you (punks...)?

And the answer is: Of course you do! Thanksgiving's less than a week away and already you have half of the perfect menu -- and there's more to come.

The hurry for shopping and prepping is inevitable this weekend, but we feel there's too much to do to not let yourself relax.

Like these options, for example:


Happy Hour Wynwood Kitchen & Bar: Friday means two things to us: The weekend, and happy hour. WKB is kicking up the weekend with $2 off all drafts and $3.50 for all well drinks. Which means you can rid yourself of this past week's stress for about $7 excluding tax and tip. Ah, the wonders of happy hour.


Santa's Enchanted Forest: Like palmetto bugs in the summer, Santa's Enchanted Forest is one of those things we'll never be able to get rid of. So if you can't beat it, join it. We've compiled a list of the must-see attractions at Chris Cringle's magic theme park. Here are the top ten things to eat and drink there.


Miami Heat Season Opener Party with Mario Chalmers With the pre-season well underway and a decent start for the Heat, Miami basketball fans owe it to themselves for some Baby Chalms time. Chalmers himself is hosting a party in honor of the beginning of basketball season and a portion of the proceeds go to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami. Tickets at $30.

Tertulia's Seamus Mullen Speaks at Book Fair: For the literary epicure, the Miami Book Fair International has a wide list of cookbook and general food book authors ready and waiting to start a conversation. We have a list of the best food authors who have come to town to it. We've interviewed a few for it, also -- including Seamus Mullen. See what his healthful Spanish fare is all about.
