Lots of fish in the sea...and on my plate.
It's Friday and Ultra is filling Miami with music fans wearing DayGlo bikini tops and little else. If you're going, you'd best be planning for where to eat and drink after (you're going to need energy for the next day).

If you're more into Bermuda shorts than florescent ones, there's a great seafood festival on Sunday and a four-course dinner prepared by Dwyane Wade's personal chef.

Much to do, starting now.

This is your lunch.
Long Lunch for Locals at the 'Cheek
In a city teeming with tourist traps,Tongue & Cheek keeps it real for locals. Chef/partner Jamie DeRosa gives out free coffee on weekends (because Starbucks don't give a shit when you say you forgot to take money with you on your morning beach walk) and serves up a $10 family meal from 5 - 8 p.m. Now, he's offering a "locals lunch" Tuesday - Friday. From 11:30 a.m. - 3 p.m., you'll get a two-course meal for only $19. There's an a la carte menu, too, starting at $9. Today seems like a good time to have a long lunch with your co-workers and start the weekend early.

Dapper chef to the stars. Cooking for you tonight.
Dwyane Wade's Personal Chef Wants to Cook For You
Call Richard Ingraham the personal chef to the stars. It's a fitting title for a man who prepares meals for some of the greatest sports figures in NFL, MLB, and NBA history including Chris Bosh, Patrick Ewing, and Dwyane Wade. Tonight, he's preparing a four-course dinner, along with the culinary students at Johnson & Wales University. The dinner is part of the school's DVC series and proceeds benefit the school's culinary scholarship fund. Tonight, March 28, enjoy a cocktail reception at 6 p.m., followed by a wine pairing dinner. Tickets are $85. To RSVP call 305-892-7578 or email
