MIAMI: Beauty Happy Hour

January 24th, 2013 | Posted in Beauty, Local by Meli

Although I can’t make it to this incredible event today at Aventura mall – you all definitely should take advantage! Head over to the Bloomie’s cosmetics department and participate in their beauty happy hour where you will be pampered by beauty professionals. That means that from 5-8pm you’ll be able to treat that mane of yours to complimentary braids, knots and curls from Blo Dry Bar Midtown and get your grub on with some sweets. Don’t forget to browse through the merchandise either because if you spend $100 or more you can pick up an exclusive makeup case in your choice of a fun, spring color!

But superficiality & retail therapy aside, Bloomingdales will be making a donation of $20,000 to Autism Speaks in honor of Florida Charity Day. As you all know, that is a cause near and dear to my heart, so make sure you head out there and show your support.

Saturday afternoon the hubs and I met up with our friends and headed to South Beach with our bicycles in tow to attend the 2nd annual Beer Snob Bicycle Pub Crawl. The event was hosted by the Miami Bike Scene and we couldn’t have had a better time! The weather held up beautifully and although we did not make it in time for the first two bars, we were able to hustle and get there early for the last two, which really paid off. We visited The Filling Station in Downtown as well as an old favorite, the Democratic Republic of Beer. Although the Filling Station had a limited menu, we really enjoyed what they provided, especially the pulled pork sandwich and their amazing selection of beer (Blue Point Toasted Lager was the definitive winner). Unfortunately, it seems like it is closed on weekends which really is a shame because I could have seen the hubs and I doing many a date night there. The DRB seemed to have also upped their game as their food was a lot better this time around, especially their calamari.
