Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: Pop-Tarts, Pop-Ups, and Brunch
It's another Friday and this weekend's theme is all about the pop-up...and brunch (because there's no such thing as a weekend without a few mimosas).

It's a good time to try out the new pop-ups in town and, because we're into instant gratification, we're inviting you to start the weekend immediately (if not sooner) by scoring freshly baked pop-tarts for breakfast (hint: buy some for your office mates or risk having them tell the boss you really didn't have the flu last Tuesday).
Then, head out to our second pop-up later in the evening for some free libations and a chance to contact the dead (seriously), before meeting the gang for brunch by a James Beard semifinalist.
Weekend starts now!
House Baked Pop-Tarts at Illegal

Sure, anyone could bring a dozen doughnuts to the Friday marketing meeting -- but how many points will you score when you show up with house-made pop-tarts?
These beauts are baked daily and available at the Illegal Bakery pop-up at Taperia Raca. The pop-up takes over the tapas restaurant Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. with goodies baked lovingly by partners (and real-life lovebirds) Mikey Mayta and Keily Vasquez. They offer a host of goodies like granola, oat bars, muffins, and macarons ($2) but what made us swoon were the pop-tarts. Each day features a surprise flavor -- like guanabana and dulce de leche, nutella and banana, blueberry and tamarind, or guava.
