  • Bin No. 18
    The breadth of the Atlantic Ocean doesn't impact the reach of Alfredo Patino. As the chef and owner of Bin No. 18, the Miami-based chef draws inspiration from the casual cuisine of European bistros while using seasonal, locally sourced ingredients and contemporary technique to lend a bit of New World flair to the ever-changing menus. French, Italian, and Latin American flavors appear throughout Chef Patino's cuisine, adding a global scope to the regionally rooted dishes. Shareable platters of imported European cheeses and cured meats are served alongside Latin staples, including octopus salad, as well as classic Italian entrees made with homemade pastas. But recreating time-honored classics isn't the only thing that Chef Patino does. He also demonstrates a willingness to experiment by fusing New and Old World influences. This culinary whimsy is evident in the kitchen's modern interpretation of a Cuban sandwich—complete with slow-roasted pork, brie, and fig sauce—which earned a spot on Food & Wine magazine's list of the Best Sandwiches in the U.S. And much like the European bistros that originally inspired Chef Patino, Bin No. 18 features an extensive wine list. Like his menu, the wine list takes a global approach by including bottles from Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Hungary, Greece, and Austria, as well as Argentina, New Zealand, South Africa, Washington State, California, and Oregon. This variety of options ensures that numerous pairing options are available for diners looking to enjoy a glass with their meal or collection of small plates. CBS Miami was also impressed by the selection, placing Bin No. 18 on its 2011 list of the Best Wine Bars In South Florida. The Old World inspiration shines through a bit more clearly in the restaurant's décor, which skews more toward a rustic, yet refined ambiance as opposed to a nouveau vibe. Wooden wine barrels sit beside tables with avocado-green chairs, occasionally doubling as small side tables. At the same time, the collection of crystal chandeliers dangling from the ceiling adds a bit of classical elegance to the space.

  • Baru Urbano
    Bar? Urbano takes the ingredients of island life?the colors, the music, and the laid-back vibe?and tosses them into a blender with the ingredients of urban life?the street art, the food, and the cocktails. The resulting concoction is a festival for the senses that still manages to offer a relaxing escape from everyday city living. Bar? Urbano's menu reflects this casual yet exciting spirit. Using urban comfort food as the basis for many dishes, chefs infuse bites with Latin and Caribbean flair, especially through signature dressings, sauces, and salsas. The spread also features ceviches, empanadas, and carnes, including one dish called the BARU parilla. Packed with enough food to feed three people or one body-building alligator, the BARU parilla is served on a sizzling skillet loaded with grilled steak, short ribs, and chorizo.

  • Duffy's Tavern
    A local landmark for more than 50 years, Duffy's entertains patrons with 20 draft beers and an eclectic menu of hearty pub fare staples. A selection of 16 burgers anchor the sumptuous spread, with selections ranging from the jalapeno-topped Mexicali burger ($7.25) to the Italian burger ($7.25), smothered in marinara sauce and parmesan cheese. Fish fans can incite a feeding frenzy with an appetizer of fried shrimp ($9.99) perched next to a choice of onion rings, potato salad, or steak or cheese fries, while fried clams ($6) escape an otherwise chowdery death in the company of fries and homemade tartar sauce. Though a food purchase is required with this Groupon, Duffy's offers a full drink menu including domestic, imported and craft beers.

  • SpankyFest Pub Crawl
    Like many of history’s greatest ideas, SpankyFest Pub Crawl was brewed up after a night of drinking. In 2009, three friends attended a birthday party. After the party ended, though, the trio came to a conclusion: the night was a bit of a waste. They had spent a lot of money but had nothing to show for it. So in 2010, they decided to try something different. Inspired by their love of animals, the friends organized a pub crawl to raise money for the Humane Society of Greater Miami. Named after their American bulldog, Spanky, the event led droves of fellow animal supporters out for a night on the town, swinging by numerous bars to take advantage of drink specials. Events such as SpankyFest are especially important because the Humane Society is supported solely by donations, not by government funds or the inherited fortune of a pirate parrot.
