Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: Tacos, Pumpkins, and Cooking Demos
How is it already October? Oktoberfest has started. Pumpkin patches are popping up. Kids are deciding what they want to be for halloween. And we're all, ooh, how can I incorporate cinnamon and pumpkin flavors into my cocktail?
Anyway, this weekend is über family-friendly. From taco desserts (a good idea after school!) to pumpkin patches and kid celebrity book signings and cooking demos, we've got your familial fix. Next weekend we can go back to be selfish adults.
National Taco Day - Friday
Last night I helped my nephew with a project for school. He had to make a posterboard and a paper doll displaying his family's heritage. So we made a mariachi suit out of cloth and leather for the doll, and we made flags and paper tacos for the board. Good thing today is National Taco Day. Huahua's, Eating House, and Taco Belly are all getting into the taco state of mind and serving up the good. Taco Belly will be offering 2-for-1 Tecate beers and traditional tacos for lunch (carne asada, pescado, cochinillo, and others). Eating House will be offering 3-for-$9 pig face tacos during dinner. That's pork cheek, tongue and ear-stuffed corn tortillas topped with cabbage slaw, roasted lime, and sous chef Sra. Lip's salsa. Huahua's is starting on a sweet note and offering apple pie tacos ($3.49) -- cinnamon-coated fried flour tortilla, flan, apple pie filling, and whipped cream.
Young Turks BBQ - Friday
Did you think we wouldn't find a food angle to the III Points festival this weekend? Nonsense! There are always drinks somewhere. But in this case, it's more than drinks. Cafeina in Wynwood will be hosting the Young Turks BBQ. No one is sure who exactly will be performing at the shindig, but, rest assured that Gigi will be providing the BBQ bites from 6 to 10 p.m.
