What's brewing in Miami this week...(hint: beer.)

Miami Marlins Block Party

PINCHO's Burger Slider

The Miami Marlins want to take you off the field and to Wynwood Walls. Yes to celebrate Opening Day, the team is throwing a neighborhood block party and for three, crazy hours – 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday April 5th – it will cover the cost of admission. There will be prizes, a Marlins speed pitch, and some serious baseball names including alumni Gaby Sanchez and Antonio Alfonseca. Of course, Billy The Marlin and the Marlins Mermaids will be there to represent.

Also promised are some ballpark themed bits. It’s not clear whether revelers will get a taste of what’s cooking at loanDepot park this season, but a recent food reveal proves time there will be tasty. The culinary lineup is created by Levy and includes Magic City BBQ, which will serve smoke house inspired southern flavors, including its pork slider with creamy corn nuggets. There’s also Bites de la Calle, with Latin-inspired street eats such as glazed maduros. And new menu items from PINCHO, Miami’s Best, SuViche and Fowl Pole. What’s more, Biscayne Bay Brewing has created a batch of beer just for the team, on draft, in cans and in bottles.

Tuesday, April 5th, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wynwood Walls – 266 NW 26th St, Miami, FL 33127.

Bars Per Person

It’s possible the study didn’t even include the other events on this page when doing this math, but analyzed the number of bars per person and guess what? Miami tops the list of cities with large numbers of drinking establishments per drinker. Or at least people. Looking at global cities and using data from Trip Advisor, Miami is 9th in the world with 18 bars per 100,000 people. Who beat us? Well, in the United States, only Las Vegas (41 bars per 100,000,) Orlando (40 bars per 100,000) and San Franciso (27 bars per 100,000.) Internationally, we lost to some very respectable locations including Prague in the Czech Republic, Edinburgh Scottland and Dublin Ireland.
