‘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.

Opinions and Advice New Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Law Florida: Complete Condo Guide
Finding and moving to a new home can be a strenuous experience, even when you like the change you’re making. This is more so when you have an emotional condition or disability and part of your treatment involves having an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). In this case, finding a new home comes with a whole new set of challenges only you and your furry friend can know. And no one needs the added fear and stress of possibly being denied housing or being discriminated against for owning an ESA. Thankfully, a new Florida law on emotional support animals that went into effect July 1, 2020, explicitly states what you and your current/prospective landlord or HOA can and cannot do regarding Emotional Service Animals. The law applies to all condos, apartments, and rental homes. Last updated on March 27, 2024.
