Segafredo L'Originale on Lincoln Road Offers Italian Cocktail Hour, Free Food

Segaceviche.jpg
Segafredo L'Originale, located inside the Colony Theatre on Lincoln Road, has been keeping a secret.

Well, not a secret exactly, but it hasn't been boasting its complimentary happy hour aperitivo buffet, suspecting that word of mouth would eventually out it.

Weekdays from 6 to 8 p.m., South Beach locals find their way to Segafredo to enjoy not discounted drinks, but a plentiful spread of complimentary small bites that includes bruschetta, house-marinated olives, Russian salad, antipasti, caprese salad skewers, Italian omelets served cold, a watermelon and feta salad, and charcuterie such as salami. Of course, there's also regularly priced beer, wine, and house cocktails, including the lauded marshmallow martini, with a flambéed marshmallow crust.

PBR: Pub Bike Ride on Saturday

Remember when Critical Mass started and took the Magic City by storm? Now it's a citywide event where more than 1,000 people, sometimes including Gabrielle Union and D. Wade, ride 14 miles collectively to a finish line with Miami's own first ice cream bicycle. What you didn't know is that there's another bicycle event that's been going on for quite some time and hasn't really gotten much recognition. The PBR Crawl -- Pub Bike Ride -- is celebrating its one-year anniversary this Saturday, June 29, with bar hopping on wheels, which is exactly what they do every month.

Starting at 7 p.m. bikers and drinkers will gather at The Corner for a low-paced ride -- you are drinking and cycling after all -- with nothing but positive vibes and responsible drinking. Oh and there's eating too, so be sure to bring your appetite and your tires -- full of air.
