Miami's Five Best Eats & Drinks This Weekend
Authentically EATalian Restaurants Weekend
It won't take long for you to find someone on the street that thinks you can't find a decent Italian restaurant in Miami. In some cases, they're right. But in other cases, they're very, very wrong. While it might just be a handful, Miami in fact has a handful of quality Italian restaurants worth your buck. The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with a few Italian eateries in town, want to show introduce Miami to the true Mediterranean diet. Restaurants like Quattro, Pelican, Salumeria 104, Toscana Divino, Pepe Nero, Tiramesu, Piccola Cucina, and Caffe Milano will be participating in the weekend-long Italian fest. From Friday to Sunday, the chefs will create three-course meals priced at $39 a person. For more info, visit iacc-miami.com.
Bar Hop on SoBe
This week, we gave you the ten best bars on South Beach. We can bitch and complain all we want that there's no where for locals to go on SoBe, but our list proves you wrong ten times. From Ted's Hideaway, to The Room, to Abraxas, to Lush, there are ample places to choose from when planning a bar hop on the beach. So, we challenge you, loyal readers of Short Order. We challenge you to find a place on our list that you hate going to. Because if you do, you've still got nine more options. Just in case.
Taste of Cuba
Hopefully your guayaberas are ironed. Hopefully your cigars are cut and ready to meet a zip lighter. Hopefully, you're in that Habana state of mind. You're going to need all of this for Taste of Cuba, happening tonight from 5 to 11 p.m. at Miami Circle in Brickell. Available will be all the lechon asado your heart can dream of, all the dark rum and mojitos your head can handle, and all the Cuban musica your body can take. We can't go to Cuba, so this is the next best thing.
