STK Miami

It’s been six years since Michael Jackson’s untimely death, but his legacy continues to be celebrated around the world. With 13 Billboard No. 1 singles and countless other chart-topping, everyone-knows-the-words hit songs, it’s only fair that we take the time to appropriately honor the King of Pop.

And STK Miami {2311 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; 305.604.6988} is doing just that. In honor of what would have been Jackson’s 57th birthday, this Saturday, August 29, from 8pm-midnight, the South Beach steakhouse is joining other STK outposts for a unique dinner party featuring Jackson’s greatest hits.

The night will feature classic MJ tunes spun by DJs Danny Stern and Martial along with chef’s Jackson-inspired dishes and entertainment such as trivia games and special giveaways. There will also be specialty cocktails, including “Thriller Shots,” “Dirty Diana” (Brugal Anejo rum, ginger beer, and fresh lime juice) and the “Smooth Criminal” (Baileys Original Irish Cream liqueur, Bulleit bourbon, and Kahlua).

We hope to see you there! It’s going to be a “Scream.”

Vintro Hotel

Did you know that there’s a Park Avenue in South Beach? Until recently, we didn’t either. But it’s here where you’ll find Vintro Hotel & Kitchen {2216 Park Avenue, Miami Beach; 305.674.9200}, a hidden art deco gem just two blocks from Collins Avenue along the river.

Listed as a one of the top 25 hotels by TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards, it’s no wonder that regulars want to keep this place all to themselves. Not to mention, every month, Vintro Hotel & Kitchen offers countless specials and discounted offers. And the best part: You don’t have to be a hotel guest to enjoy them! (Although, we must warn you, you may very likely be tempted to check in for a night—or two!) Here’s a look at what the hotel has going on this month:

Tapas + Unlimited Wine
For a limited time, Vintro Kitchen is offering a special on wine and tapas. For just $25 per person (every day from 7-9pm), you can have two tapas plates of your choice and unlimited house wine. That’s right, we said unlimited. From crispy pork belly and beet tartlets to mini lamb burgers, there really is no wrong way to go.
