Get into the Fourth of July Mood at These Miami Beach Events

The days are warmer, longer, and there is (slightly) less traffic, all signs of summer in South Florida. While the season is officially here, it doesn’t really begin until after Independence Day.

Tomorrow, 27 Restaurant & Bar on Indian Creek Drive is hosting the CLASSy Natural Wine Night where you can sip on various drinks at a discounted price.

Head over to RWSB on Collins Avenue the day before Independence Day to be a part of the summer barbecue kick off featuring food prepared by guest chefs Janine Booth and Jeff McInnis.

After Fishing, Go for Some Miami Ice Cream

Have you made any summer plans yet? Perhaps you’re thinking of ways to complement your cool deep sea fishing experience on the THERAPY-IV. If you plan on spending any time in the barrier island and are looking for other ways to stay cool in South Florida, consider exploring some of the Miami ice cream shops that offer a great for the whole family, much like a deep sea fishing trip.
We’ll begin with two spots just west of Miami Beach. MadLab Creamery on 39th Street has become known for its one of a kind ice creams that use toppings such as edible glitter, Japanese cheesecake, and more. The setting is ideal for sharing on social media.
Just north of MadLab Creamery on 41st Street is Aubi & Ramsa which offers something a little more adult-oriented. Try the Kentucky crème brulee infused with bourbon or perhaps the chocolate Aztec with Del Maguey Vida mezcal.
Unlike most ice cream places, Lulu’s Nitrogen Ice Cream in the Edgewater neighborhood makes its ice cream on the spot. Choose your flavor, your mix-ins, and then marvel as the ice cream is created right before your eyes courtesy of a little liquid nitrogen.

Set Sail for Miami’s New Reef

Are you eager to do any fishing in Key Biscayne any time soon? Avid anglers in South Florida will now have another option to choose from the next time they may be passing through the waters of Biscayne Bay. Miami-Dade County and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conversation Commission have joined forces to reveal a new artificial reef made from more than 130 tons of limerock boulders and clean concrete.
Dubbed Bug Light Shoal, this all-new reef will assist with providing access and opportunities for anglers to catch bait before they venture off into offshore waters. If the name of the reef happens to sound somewhat familiar, it was the nickname given to Biscayne Bay’s decommissioned navigational marker which, for decades, was a haven for bait fish.
To reach Bug Light Shoal, you’ll need to head about 2.4 nautical miles east northeast of the Cape Florida Lighthouse towards a depth of 22 feet. The lighthouse is part of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park.
