Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: Grovetoberfest, Seafood Fests, and Trader Joe's Opening

Let's take a step back for a second to appreciate the meaning of October in Miami. While our northern counterparts are currently shivering their hind quarters as they waddle to their jobs, we're sitting on the front porch, sipping a fresh smoothie while writing this guide. Damn, it feels good to be in Miami. Wait 'til January -- that's when they get really jealous about our beach-day photos on New Year's Day. Hah!

This weekend's all about the fruit of the ocean, kids. There are two seafood festivals going on around town, and if you're really into it, you can go to both because they're on different days. Also, Grovetoberfest is back and better than ever, and Trader Joe's opens today.
