It's five o'clock somewhere.
If you're still a wee bit hung over from Memorial Day weekend, we've got the cure: More partying. Come on, you're not in Kansas. This is Miami and things are happening this weekend.

In case you needed an excuse to get out and enjoy life, it's Friday, the Miami Heat play the Pacers, and we've compiled a list of the best places to go to eat and drink on the cheap for happy hour.

There's also an insane burger eating competition (in case basketball's not your thing); eating for a cause, and a celebration of Scotch whisky.

Weekend starts now!

Sliders for Happy Hour. Good deal.

Watch people eating giant burgers. Cheer them to victory.
Brutus Burger Bonanza at Giraffas
Sure, the Miami Heat play the Pacers, but for some of us who prefer a "beefier" competition, there's the Brutus Burger Bonanza at Giraffas in Doral . Tonight, May 30 at 6:30 p.m. six contestants will go head to head (or mouth to mouth) to see who can finish the monster Brutus burger first. The Brutus, by the way, is six times the size of an ordinary burger, topped with bacon, ham, cheese, and an egg. Plus, the competition has a patriotic side since two of the entrants come from a local military base. What's in it for you (besides experiencing sheer awesomeness)? Specials and prizes. Be sure to post pics using hashtag #brutusburgerbonanza.
