Miami’s Best Eats and Drinks This Week: New Happy Hours and a Hermit Crab Race
By Clarissa Buch for Miami New Times
Say “happy Monday” with new happy-hour offerings at various Miami eateries. If you’re in Wynwood, head to Kyu; if you’re near Miami Beach, try the Mondrian’s new pop-up Hurao’s weekday specials or the Continental’s offerings, like cheesesteak egg rolls and $5 cocktails.
Eat a sub Wednesday at Jersey Mike’s Subs, where all the day’s profits will go toward the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation in honor of the sandwich chain’s annual Day of Giving.
End the week watching a hermit crab race while enjoying bar bites and drinks, including perros, chicken kebabs, and ribs, at Cafeina’s Krabtucky Derby.
