Lots 'o' fries!
Benchwarmers, the midtown sports bar by Cesar Morales, the owner of Wynwood's Wood Tavern, is open.

The informal bar opened Saturday, just in time for World Cup fever, and I stopped in for a beer and some fries.

It's difficult to miss this casual spot, located across the street from midtown Miami's multiuse shopping and living space, in the building that formerly housed Soho Lounge. Just look for the gigantic blue "Benchwarmers" mural on the corner of NE 36th Street and First Court.
