Miami's Top Five Hangover Hangouts
Of course, we here at Short Order don't condone the use of drugs to enhance your WMC experience, but we are not ignorant enough to deny their existence. So, if you must engage in brain experimentation this week or any other, here are some perfect places to regain your composure before attempting to make it home alive.
This South Beach staple with the motto "Where food and people mix" attempts to recreate the nostalgic ambience of restaurants in Manhattan's theater district, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Just as the first Jerry's Deli has harbored a wide range of loyal Studio City patrons in Southern California since 1978, Jerry's Famous on the corner of Española Way and Collins Avenue has built itself a loyal following among those who frequent SoBe. A night out wouldn't be complete without some of Jerry's specialty pizza, which ranges from the Hawaiian ($16.95) to the popular and massive Deli Pizza ($18.95) with pastrami, pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and olives. Not done drinking? Mojitos, martinis, margaritas and impressive specialty drinks like the Singapore Sling (Tanqueray, sloe gin, sweet & sour mix, cherry brandy and a splash of soda) are only $9.
Opened in 1996 on the south end of South Beach, Big Pink's trademarked creed is "Real food, for real people, really." Besides boasting comfort and location, Big Pink has an unbelievable 220 options on the menu, including the popular Myles high smoked salmon sandwich club named after the original owner. Also popular among the late night crowd is the Big Pink Daddy Mack with two juicy four-ounce patties and the TV Dinner, a multi-compartment steel tray with a varying daily selection of six delicious items. Many enjoy their delicious signature Bloody Mary's, perhaps at its best on the weekend when talented bartender Sakina is in the house.
