Shameless plug alert: The Botran Rum, Chilean wine, and Stella Artois were flowing freely last night at Miami New Times' Iron Fork kicking off two months of Miami Spice.

Now that the bills have been paid let's move on to the real action: the food. Among the endless array of options were a few standouts that had us returning again and again. Truth be told we spent a solid half of the night-long fête posted up in front of Lure Fishbar's all you can eat oyster station crushing Blue Points with a pineapple-cucumber mignonette and Kushis with jalapeños and soy.

Brooks vs. Erickson: Game on!
The New Times Iron Fork/Miami Spice kickoff, presented by the Miami Downtown Development Authority, has just announced the two Miami chefs brave enough to face each other in a battle of skill, fire, and sharp objects.
