Dwyane Wade Sr.'s Miami Vice-Themed Treats at 1-800-Lucky. If the man in the picture looks familiar, it's because he bears an uncanny resemblance to his son, the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade. A formidable presence in his own right, Dwyane Wade Sr. is the CEO and founder of the Pro Pops Foundation, which empowers fathers to take an active role in the lives of their children. To raise awareness and funding for the organization, he's collaborated with 1-800-Lucky to offer two neon-colored treats for a limited time. The Miami Vice ice cream features vanilla and cotton candy swirl soft serve ice cream inside a bright pink cone and topped with a number three (Dwyane Wade's jersey number) made of chocolate fondant. One dollar from each cone ($6) sold will benefit Pro Pops. The bar at 1-800-Lucky will feature the Wade Different cocktail, a Miami Vice-hued libation made with Simple vodka, almond syrup, blue Curaçao, and pineapple juice. For every cocktail ($12) sold, one dollar will benefit Pro Pops. In addition, for every bottle of Simple vodka sold, the company behind the brand provides 20 meals to those in need in the U.S. Saturday, April 6, through Sunday, June 16, at 1-800-Lucky. 143 NW 23rd St., Miami; 305-768-9826; 1-800-lucky.com.
