Happy August, foodies! The dog days of summer are officially here, and so is Miami Spice! For the next two months, we’ll all be enjoying prix fixe meals all over town (now including brunch), and specifically here at MMTM Headquarters we’ll be giving you our “takes” on the best menus in the return of our #MiamiSpiceMonday series. But, just because Miami Spice is here, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other great foodie happenings taking place in South Florida. Check out the below for all the new openings, special offerings, and more in our monthly Foodie Friday – Local Edition round-up. Enjoy!
It’s August and that means one thing… It’s Miami Spice Season!!! While we’re all chomping at the bit to take advantage of the annual prix fixe celebration at our favorite area restaurants, we’re also aware that there’s much more that our city has to offer during these dog days of summer. Below is a collection of some of those non-Miami Spice foodie activities, offers, and events that may just pry some of your attention away from Miami Spice for a day or two. Enjoy!
Did you know that August this year had five Fridays, five Saturdays and five Sundays? The next time that the 2014 calendar repeats itself is in the year 2025, so we’re going to play freaky superstitions around here today and assume you’ll be doing something extraordinary to celebrate an event that won’t happen for another 11 years. We’ll even play devil’s advocate and say you should leave your diet behind and celebrate the last hurrah of summer with all sorts of guilty indulgences. Why not? But before you go all foodie frantic on us, enjoy our round up of fun links to kick-start the weekend.
Do you guys have any fun plans this weekend? We’re over here just trying to survive the summer heat. For some reason, August days seem to move like molasses and we can’t decide if we love or hate it. What subconsciously keeps us going is that September is around the corner and that translates into milder weather and a very close holiday season. So while we dream of cooler days, grab a cocktail (preferably a beer because it’s so damn hot) and enjoy our friday round up of cool foodie links! Enjoy!
