Cocktails and the World Cup.
This weekend there are only three things on the minds of everyone in Miami: Where to take Dad for Father's Day, where to Watch the World Cup, and WTF with the Miami Heat?

Lets's focus on the positive, shall we?

World Cup fever has taken over Miami and you've got to take in a few games -- but where? You don't want to walk into a bar filled with Spain fans wearing a Netherlands jersey, do you? Keep calm, folks, because we've complied a list of the best places to watch the games -- by country!

And dad. Remember him? He's the guy who footed the bill for that lucrative degree in medieval tapestry. The least you could do is take him out for a good meal. We've got you covered with several totally cool options for dad Hint: Pappy Van Winkle pancakes, anyone?

Red Solo Cup. I fill you up. Let's have a party!
This weekend is all about indulgence, fun, and red Solo cups.

Start by nabbing a free donut (or doughnut depending on where you're going) for a morning treat or mid-day sugar rush.

Then, while snacking on your spherical pastry, plan your weekend. You've got choices. Grab some barbecue (or make some at home with chef Phillip Bryant's tips) or go watch your favorite bartenders play softball (while you drink out of red Solo cups) -- with proceeds benefiting the Overtown Youth Center.

There's a pattern here. And it involves that favorite of frat boys, Toby Keith, and us -- the red Solo cup! Weekend starts now!

Grill at home -- or go get some barbecue.
It's Memorial Day weekend, which means most of us have three whole days to enjoy Miami. And although this weekend tends to be quite hectic on the beaches, there's still plenty to do in the way of eating, drinking, and having a great time.

From a killer barbecue that requires absolutely no work on your part, to brunch, to bocce, there are always fantastic options.

Your (long) weekend starts now.
