Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: Miami Spice and Hedy's Watermelon Tequila Ice Pops

Happy Friday. If you're still not recovered fully from our Iron Fork shindig, don't fret -- the work week ends in a few short hours.

There's no better way to celebrate the weekend than by enjoying a fantastic three-course Miami Spice meal. The two-month-long promotion kicks off today and with 174 restaurants participating, you've got to start now to get through all your favorites.

If your weekend plans involve a little beach time or a picnic, why not make a batch of Hedy Goldsmith's frozen watermelon tequila & lime pops? Miami's mistress of desserts shares her recipe, perfect for backyard parties.

Of course, you can always check out some of the new restaurants that opened up in July like Finka Table & Tap or Prost, using our handy recap of restaurants that opened and closed in July.

Your weekend starts now!
