Sugar Factory Offers Up Tricks & Treats

It’s kind of fitting to be writing this review during Halloween week, the one time of the year that Americans collectively come together to keep dentists in business for another year. As a thirty-something adult, I can’t really get away with trick-or-treating anymore, and I have to limit my partying to those really important dates (birthdays or bust), but there are times when it’s fun to just throw caution to the wind and feel like a kid again.

MMTM Giveaway – Alhambra Reserva 1925 Heritage Set

When you think of countries with long, storied beer traditions, names like Germany, Belgium, and the U.S. come to mind. While Spain doesn’t usually make that list, trust me when I tell you there’s nothing like a cold beer paired with some tapas to cool down on a hot summer day in Andalucía. When I studied in Spain I was obsessed with Cervezas Alhambra, the very first brewery in the city of Granada that dates back to 1925.

Diplomático Rum Tasting

 A few weeks ago MMTM was invited to an intimate Rum Diplomático rum tasting at the ultra luxe Villa Azur on Miami Beach. The exclusive tasting, led by Diplomatico Rum’s Master Distiller, Tito Cordero, provided an opportunity for a select few (us included!) to get a first taste of the newly-released-to-the-South-Florida-market Single Vintage 2000, as well as the brand’s flagship Reserva Exclusiva and the top-of-the-line Ambassador Selection.

So to liven your Monday morning, I decided to do a second post on the impressive cocktails I enjoyed during our dinner a few weeks ago.

A Day-Cation at the Viceroy Miami

We all like to get away every now and again, but it’s not always easy (or affordable) to just pick up and go away on a vacation…or even a staycation, for that matter. Sometimes all you need is a day away from your normal routine to disconnect, refresh, and get your mojo back. Thankfully, the Viceroy Miami has some great deals this summer geared specifically for Florida residents, and I was lucky enough to get a little taste of one a few weeks ago.

Rocking Smoothies at Robeks

Memorial Day is now long gone and that means that summer is officially in full swing. The good news is that it means a lot of beach time and bbq’s loom in the near future. The bad news? “Summer body” is a thing and in order to indulge unapologetically, I have to be consistent at exercise.

MMTM’s 5 de Mayo Picks 2015

Tomorrow is the day when Americans celebrate all things Mexican. The paradox is hard to decipher, so we don’t really try. A quick search on Wikipedia sheds insight into the Cinco de Mayo history and one finds that the date is observed, “to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.” So, no Cinco de Mayo is NOT the Mexican Independence which happens to land months later in September.

BrickHouse – Next Level Bar Food

Wynwood is now ubiquitous with coffee shops, restaurant and hipsters. It has become the destination for urban art and sidewalk poetry. Few things surprise us in the neighborhood that brought eccentricity and culture to our beloved city, so when we ventured to BrickHouse we expected another dive bar, with okay drinks and a bar menu that we thought would leave a lot to desire. But that’s what we love about this neighborhood, it continually proves us wrong. So when we tried a myriad of drinks that were both innovative and flavorful we were impressed, but it was the food at this self-proclaimed “Drinking Den” that knocked it out of the park.

This Vagabond is No Wanderer

Per the Dictionary a vagabond is basically a waste of space.

Well, this time, Mr. Smarty Pants (yeah, I’m talking to you Dictionary) is dead wrong. This vagabond – Vagabond Restaurant and Bar, that is – is no lost soul; it’s a serious, feet-firmly-planted, must-visit foodie destination. Ain’t nobody wandering around here.
