Miami's Five Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: Memorial Day Edition

It's Memorial Day weekend. The "Official Unofficial" start of the summer. Which, in Miami, doesn't mean all that much since most of our days are filled with beach outings (try surfboarding in Minneapolis in January -- it's not working so well)!

But still, we have a three day weekend to look forward to. While most of South Beach is going on a party spree, we're listing five non-beach-related ways to spend your days.

From a brewery tour to a Heat watch party to vacationing in your own backyard, here's our top five picks for this weekend. No matter what you do -- don't drink and drive...There are massive police DUI checkpoints all over Miami (in Coconut Grove there are literally dozens of officers on motorcycles right now). Besides -- it's more fun to be happy and safe.
