48 Hours in Miami

Summer is approaching, and it's getting hot! Welcome to my new series. For the next 6 weeks I'll be bringing you info on 6 different cities, and how you can make the most out of a summer weekend! I'm a beach bear, so my first stop is Miami, which was my home for about 6 months. I absolutely fell in love with this city, it's culture, it's art scene, the food, and the beaches!

Let's take a look at how you should spend 48 hours in Miami!


Friday Night

You're arriving, probably from Miami International Airport. Best option is to grab an Uber and head over to your hotel, The Shelbourn, to check in. Feel free to grab a quick nap, as the night is just getting started. When I lived in Miami, we would get off work around 5pm (sometimes earlier) and have a rest before heading out for the night. So, sleep for about an hour, then get ready, because it's going down!

7:00pm - Drinks at Monty's Raw Bar

The night. Starts. Now!

You'll love sitting outside in this Tiki style bar and restaurant with a pool in the middle. Bring your suit and jump in if you so desire! You're going to want to get the Pain Killer. It's a delicious fruity drink that stays true to it's word and will definitely remove all pain. This drink comes in three levels, Pain Killer 1, 2, & 3, and corresponds with the number of rum shots. My advice, start with a 3, then work your way down! Remember, the night is young and so are you!

10:00pm - Dinner at Burger and Beer Joint

This place quickly became my favorite, and you'll love it, too. Just like the name of the restaurant, they serve burgers and beer! My favorite is the Hotel California, a delicious beef patty topped with sharp cheddar, frilled onions, fried egg, guacamole, jalapeño relish, cilantro sour cream all on a brioche bun. Trust me, it'll keep you going strong while you party the night away.

11:00pm - SCORE Nightclub

One of Miami's best gay bars in town. Now, it's not a bear bar, but it includes all men. This bar has great music and dancing, and you'll want to stay all night, but it's just your first stop. Have a drink or two, do some dancing, and get ready for your next stop.

1:00am - TWIST Nightclub

Now the night hits it's high point. This bar features 7 different areas, each with their own theme, from the British pub to the techno dance club. You're sure to enjoy delicious cocktails, a great beer list, and decent wine selections.

4:00am - Uber back to the Shelbourn


Saturday

12:00pm - Rise and shine, breakfast at the hotel

Let's face it, you partied hard, didn't you? Don't go far. Today is dedicated to hanging out at the cabanas by the pool, walking down to the beach for a while, and lounging around. You'll start with breakfast by the pool and maybe a mimosa or bloody Mary. Then it's ultimate relaxation!

8:00pm - Dinner on Espanola Way

Take your pick. There are a dozen restaurants here to choose from, and none of them will disappoint. Whether you want a quiet sit-down spot, or you want something a little more Latin with dancing and lively music, you'll find it all on this street!

10:00pm - Club Boi

This might get a little wild... Head over to Club Boy for hip-hop, Latin, Top 40, and R&B music, plus strippers! YOLO, right?!


Sunday

11:00am - Brunch at The Local House

This place is not to be missed, but get there on time and get a porch seat so you can enjoy the breezes from the ocean not but a block away, as well as the ceiling fans that will keep you cool and comfortable. Try the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict and have a Bloody Mary for me!

1:00pm - Shopping at Lincoln Mall

This world famous shopping stretch is the best place to shop 'til you drop. I personally love the people watching, and there are plenty of places around there to grab a quick ice cream or snack if you get hungry! It's the perfect way to end your trip to Miami!

After 48 hours, you'll be heading back to the airport a little more tan, with less liver function, and a greater love for Latin food and Latin music!
