The Heat Celebrated at LIV With $200,000 Tab: Here Are Two More Affordable Spots To Party

After the Miami Heat won the championships last night, the team celebrated  at LIV, where the boys ran up a $200,000 bar tab. If you want to celebrate the team's win (but are finding yourself a little short of funds to pony up the price of a one-bedroom condo on South Beach for a night of partying, might we suggest stopping for a drink at one of these Miami Heat parties:

Meat Market had their own hand in the Heat's victory. Chef Sean Brasel was tapped to serve up local fare at all three of the final games this week. In celebration, Meat Market's Friday Happy Hour will honor the champs and fans by giving away one free The Big 3 cocktail per person. This  flaming concoction blends three mystery top shelf spirits, which means that one is probably all it takes for you to wind down from the work week. Guests can also enjoy half-priced drinks, $1.50 oysters, $2.50 shrimp and $6 fresh ceviche to nibble on.



Rusty Pelican is celebrating the Heat with a special happy hour from 4 - 7 p.m. Small plates run from $5 - 9 and special Heat Mojitos are $7. We suggest taking one out on the terrace, facing the arena and making a toast!

Here, by the way, is LeBron James rapping onstage last night with LMFAO:
