Relax. Have fun this weekend!
This weekend is all about parties and free stuff -- basically what summer is all about.

We're talking having a beach day -- in Hialeah (you read that correctly) to riding a mechanical bull in Doral, to sampling some locally-made beers, this weekend is all about letting loose and having a great time.

Weekend starts now!

Pollo Tropical Grand Opening Beach Party in Hialeah
Come out to the grand opening of the new Pollo Tropical today and enjoy a day at the beach -- in Hialeah!

Doors open at 10:30 a.m. to the new restaurant, located at 7845 W. Hialeah Gardens Blvd., and if you're one of the first 100 people, you'll receive free Pollo Tropical chicken for a year. Don't worry if you get there too late, because there's a raffle at 11 a.m. for more free chicken. Dance to music provided by Y-100 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and check out the robo surfer and spin and win tent until 5 p.m. -- go on...give it a try (don't be chicken).

National Ceviche Day is Saturday -- Wish for Fish
Have you been outside yet? Summer in Miami has arrived, bringing with it 95-degree days with 100 percent humidity in the air. We don't know about you, but a huge stuffed pork chop or porterhouse with mashed potatoes just sounds too heavy about now. What does sound appealing?

The bright flavors of a good, fresh ceviche. Fresh seafood, kissed by citrus and spices is what we crave when the temperature rises. Coincidentally, tomorrow just happens to be National Ceviche Day with some of the best places in Miami celebrating with specials. Here are our five favorite spots to enjoy seafood so fresh, it just might slap you.
