Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: SOBEWFF, Eats and Beats, and Brunch for a Better World

The world culinary spotlight is trained on Miami this weekend as the South Beach Wine and Food Festival takes over most of our city. With dozens of celebrity chefs like Anthony Bourdain, Rachael Ray, Eric Ripert, Geoffrey Zakarian, and April Bloomfield cooking for us and posing for countless pictures, it's kind of hard to not let this take center stage (especially when the Sports Illustrated swimsuit models are in town for the event, too).

But this is Miami, folks, and we've got a bunch of other stuff going on including some fantastic pop-ups and dinners, a lot of freebies, an alternate festival, and a Brunch For Change. Let's explore the options.
