Craft Beer Collab With the Miami Dolphins at Veza Sur

Veza Sur is preparing to launch its first-ever sports partnership with the Miami Dolphins. But first, the local brewery needs you to vote for the winning flavor. The kickoff takes place Saturday at Veza Sur's Wynwood pub. Fans can come in to taste and vote for their favorite cerveza all weekend long. (The Miami Dolphins cheerleaders will be on-site Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m., too.) The winning beer will be announced on August 16 and will make its debut at the stadium and brewery just in time for the Dolphins' first regular-season game on September 12. As part of the partnership, Veza Sur will debut a bar buildout on the 300 level of Hard Rock Stadium, featuring the fan-chosen cerveza along with signature Veza Sur brews. Saturday, August 14, and Sunday, August 15, at Veza Sur, 55 NW 25th St., Miami; 786-362-6300; vezasur.com.

Dine Out Lauderdale Returns to Broward

If you're in Fort Lauderdale and want a dining deal a little closer to home (or you're a Miamian who likes to explore), Dine Out Lauderdale offers South Florida visitors and local foodies alike the opportunity to enjoy discounted dines on some of the best food our neighbors to the north have to offer. The summer program is slated to run through September 30 as part of LauderDeals, a broader initiative that also showcases promotional rates at local attractions, spa, and hotels. Each restaurant, including 3030 Ocean, El Vez, and Steak 954, will offer prix-fixe menus featuring at least three courses for $35 or $45 (tax, gratuity, and drinks excluded). To browse participating restaurants and menus, visit Dine Out Lauderdale, which is updated daily to include new menus. Reservations are strongly encouraged and can be secured via the restaurant(s) of your choice.
