From bourbon to bowling, and plenty of DJs associated with the Miami Heat

Yardbird Bar

By Lesley Abravanel

One Bourbon, One More Bourbon, Some Beers
Here we go again, another National Insert Your Favorite Food or Drink Month, this time in honor of bourbon, and to celebrate, Yardbird Southern Table & Bar is giving free bourbon cocktails to women from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Friday until the end of September. Chasing those cocktails are free snacks: fried black eyed peas, candied spiced peanuts and house dill pickles, available to those with X and or Y chromosomes.

Totally Awesome
Lucky Strike Bowling Lanes
throws back, hosting its monthly 80s night at 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15. Among the festivities: a costume contest, 80s movie-themed drinks at $5 each and “transcendent beats” by Miami Marlins’ DJ Vertigo.

The Heat is On at FDR
Everybody may be a DJ these days, but not every DJ is a former Miami Heat player like Rony Seikaly who will spin at 11 p.m. every Friday at FDR at the Delano's Boite Fridays. From Heat players to Het playas, on Saturdays, DJ Irie takes over the turntables at the subterranean hot spot.

Who's Yo Momma?

There, you'll see "The Show," featuring photos by David Siqueiros and portrait and caricature representations of Wexler--er, Yo Momma, as seen by her fabulous coterie of artist friends.
