It's Friday, so by now you should have recovered from last weekend's South Beach Wine & Food Festival and are fresh and ready to abuse your body once again.
There's much to do. Celebrate Carnaval with a glass of champagne in hand, channel New York with a special treat, or celebrate at the Wynwood Yard.
Weekend starts now!
The New Yorker Shake
Calling all New York expats! If you're homesick and want a taste of the Big Apple, head to Junior's Restaurant in Mizner Park in Boca Raton. This weekend only, Black Tap New York and Junior's are collaborating on the New Yorker shake. It costs $19, but it's big, like Chrysler Building big. And it's topped with a slice of strawberry cheesecake, because in the Big Apple, you go big or you go home.
YardFest at the Wynwood Yard
This weekend, the Wynwood Yard will host YardFest, a three-day party with nonstop food and entertainment. Start the weekend with a kombucha happy hour today from 4 to 7 p.m., and stay for a special edition of Taste of the Yard from 5 to 8 p.m. Twenty-five bucks gets you tastings of the Yard's food trucks, including the Lone Wolfe, Yoko Matcha, and Brazilian Fire. Saturday, have a late breakfast beginning at noon from Viv's Little Waffle Shop, and enjoy the Raddest Craft Fair in the afternoon. Sunday, enjoy reggae from 2 p.m. till late.
Shop at the Southwest Farmers' Market
Shop for local produce, fresh seafood, and pasture-raised chicken and pork for your dinner table at the Southwest Farmers' Market this Saturday at Tropical Park. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. shop for the week, then reward yourself with a smoothie, mint iced tea, or some ceviche.
Veuve Clicquot Carnaval
This Saturday, sip champers to your heart's content at the third-annual Veuve Clicquot Carnaval at Miami's Museum Park to support Pérez Art Museum Miami. Be entertained by samba dancers, drummers, and live music while you eat and drink. Admission costs $35; champagne and food will be available for purchase.
Drink Pink at Nikki Beach
There's a reason why we don't say Burgundy all day...Rose wine is crisp, chill, and delicious. And it's pink (which makes everything better). Nikki Beach invites you to should rose all day at Drink Pink Saturdays. Enjoy rose by the glass for $5 and bottles for $25. From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. snack on sunset specials like $2 oysters, $7 ceviches, $20 lobster rolls, and $15 prosciutto di Parma pizza. Lunch is served from noon to 6 p.m.
