Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: Beer, Brunch, and Boobs (For a Cause)
Of course, we're still in the midst of that wonderful celebration known as American Craft Beer Week, so if you're into hoppy IPA's, a good chocolaty porter, or a refreshing lager, there's still time to taste some delicious, rare, small batch brews.
If you're into brunch, there are two great ones this weekend. One takes you back to the Jazz Age, when Hemingway and the Fitzgeralds spent the days writing and their nights eating and drinking. The other offers booze and brunch -- to save boobs!
Weekend starts now!
Literary Jazz Brunch at The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove
Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove
Food and the written word go as well together as cold oysters and a good wine. If you want proof, you just have to read this quote from Ernest Hemingway's "A Moveable Feast":
"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans."
Now that we've got your appetite whet for novels and a nosh, head over to the Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove on Saturday, May 17 for their Literary Jazz Brunch. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., enjoy food, books, and live jazz by the Les Haber Quartet. Mingle with local authors as you brunch the day away. The event costs $130 and benefits the Footprints Foundation.
