‘Spice’ up Your Summer with Miami’s Eclectic Events This August

Jul 17, 2017 July 17, 2017

As summer winds down, it’s important to fit in as many adventures as you can. Don’t worry, as Miami has you covered as usual. These August events will keep you busy right up until September.

Miami Spice: August 1 to September 30

Various locations across Miami

During Miami Spice, our city turns into an all-you-can-eat buffet for two whole months. Participating restaurants serve up tantalizing three-course prix fixe menus at pocket-friendly prices. You can score satisfying lunches for $23 each and gourmet dinners for $39. Be sure to call ahead and make a reservation because this event draws crowds. Plus, some restaurants don’t offer these specials every day of the week.
 
So, who has the best deals? At Lobster Bar Sea Grille Miami Beach, you can get a lobster tail and filet mignon for the standard $39 price. Stop by The Forge for a king crab risotto and mango panna cotta. Florida residents get 20% off their bill at Spiga. IL Mulino will be serving classic Italian paired with an extensive wine menu. Even the ridesharing app, Lyft is joining in on the fun with 20% off two rides for new members.
