Another Monday has come and slapped us in the face. This week's caffeinated fantasy includes a bedside espresso machine and beer bongs rigged to dispense chilly cold-brew coladas as we hit the snooze.
If coffee is merely the "how" in our our start to the week, we must lean hard on the "why" to get going each Monday. As we struggle to wipe the siren song of sleep away from our memory, we cling to the promise of tasty treats and crazy eats waiting for us in the week ahead.
From a trio of chefs taking SoBe by storm tonight to $10 off tomorrow's food tour, there's lots to look forward to -- if you can just get out of bed.
