Choices, choices. . . It’s that time of year–every weekend from here to January overflows with events! Here are some of my picks for food events to mark on your calendar this weekend.
If you’re attending the Miami Book Fair this weekend, there’s a separate post on food related events at the festival.
Food Truck Choices
Choose from a carnival’s worth of food trucks from South Florida, along with some guest trucks from other towns in Florida at the third annual Burgie Awards this Saturday. Choose from a selection of some of Burger Beast’s favorite hamburgers from restaurants around town too. Burger Beast (a.k.a. Sef Gonzalez) announces the winners of this year’s awards for best comfort foods in town. Enjoy the free screening of the documentary, Hamburger in America, on a giant screen while you enjoy the carnival of indulgence. Admission and parking are free.
5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Magic City Casino, 450 N.W. 37 Ave.
Sat. 11/19 and Sun. 11/20
There are some good options for vegans this weekend. This Saturday is the grand opening celebration of Choices Vegan Café with DJ (this is Miami!) and sangria.
7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 379 SW 15th Road in Brickell
Sunday is the monthly Waffle Brunch at Sweat Records. Made to order vegan and gluten free waffles with a selection of toppings are $6.
11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 5505 NE 2nd Ave.
