Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: New Year's 2016

Happy New Year! 

We've survived 2015 and are looking forward to a prosperous 2016 filled with fun and happiness. 

But before we all go about trying to run five miles a day or get that promotion or find the love of our lives, let's take this weekend to enjoy ourselves. That means celebrating a bit more with good food and good friends. 

Whether you're meeting family for brunch, or want to do a little local food shopping, there's something for everyone this weekend — which starts now!

Orange Bowl Celebration at Monty's Sunset All Weekend
Monty's Sunset is the "official" South Beach headquarters for the Orange Bowl, which means that if you're a Clemson fan you've still got a lot of well-deserved partying to do. Celebrate the victory with happy-hour specials, Miami-style pool parties, stone crab claws, and lots of college football fans. The party lasts all weekend.
