Miami's Best Eats and Drinks this Week: Job Fairs, Kitchen Collab, and Tequila
Alright, kiddies. There are two types of people in this world. The type with zero responsibilities today who are sleeping in until noon, and have a boss or a job with great respect for Christopher Columbus. In fourteen hundred ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue... And then there is the type that had to get up bright and early today to work and tend to the land that Columbus so thoughtfully discovered for us in the first place.
Bill Wisser Wanna tend to this bar?
If you are a member of the former, don't brag about it. We're bitter.
Also, we have plenty of things to do this week whether you have today off or not. So, ha!

How well do you know your tequila? No, no, we don't mean if you've made besties with a bottle after a bad break-up. Do you know what's inside? How it's made? How it's distilled? Who distills it? How can you tell a good batch from a bad one? On Wednesday, October 16, Patron Tequila will be hosting a tequila seminar for anyone who wants to know more about their weekend best friend. The seminar will take place at the Fontainebleau at 7 p.m. in the Glimmer Ballroom and also includes lectures from Patron's master distillers team, cocktails, and food pairings. As a bonus, you'll also be among the first to try Gran Patron Piedra, which is the brand's new extra añejo. Call 305-538-2000 for more info.
