Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend
With the recent influx in the Magic City's bakeries, there are plenty of options to buy loaves of bread to accompany a glass of leggy wine for your homemade pre-race pastas. Acme, Lee & Marie's, and Zak the Baker's breads are all at your disposal. Keep in mind you can use the leftover stale bread for croutons or bread pudding. You're winning already and the race hasn't even begun!
For those wanting absolutely nothing to do with the idea of melting away pounds of fat and challenging endurance, Fairchild Garden's Chocolate Festival is this weekend from Friday to Sunday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Surely, you can imagine what's in store: Everything from cacao beans and pods to chocolate fountains to thick and creamy chocolate milkshakes to hand crafted chocolate truffles. Delicately painted confections aside, everyone loves chocolate and it's truly a loss if you don't visit. Teas, plants, flowers, and food are there to buffer the sugar, cocoa and butter.
It's a win-win weekend for all of us. Pasta, bread, brownies, muffins, and cookies OR chocolate.
