Late AM: Hit up the beach volleyball courts between 7th and 8th St in the Beach for our Thrillist BDOYL Beach Volleyball Tournament. We’ll kick out the models and other questionably employed people and take over the courts. Winning team gets a free night at The Clevelander, second gets a $75 bar tab. Everyone gets drinks there after! It's Time for Lunch: Sit outside at La Sandwicherie and enjoy the only French food you’ll ever get without attitude. Pass judgment on all the drunks going to Mac’s Club Deuce across the street so early in the day. Or, if you hate the French THAT much, grab a taco at T-Mex Cantina down the street. Post-Lunch: Roll down to Little Havana and pick up some hand-rolled cigars and a guayabera. Smoke said cigar outside in the courtyard at Cuba Ocho and pretend you’re Beyonce and Jay-Z causing an international incident. Or, if you prefer to NOT feel like you’re breaking a major federal law, hang out on the leather couches at the Little Havana Cigar Factory across the street and savor the aroma of Cuba. Early Afternoon: Walk over to Maximo Gomez Park and get in a few games with the viejitos. Yell, “Domino!” repeatedly, even if you don’t win. Because it’s a good day. The Best Day of Your Life, in fact. If the viejitos are hatin’, grab a seat at Cuba Ocho and stay across the street playing in their courtyard
Happy Hour: Take a short jaunt down 8th St for happy hour at Balan’s at Mary Brickell Village. Watch the healthy people on their way to yoga and LA Fitness across the street and swear, after this Best Day of Your Life, you’re gonna get back in there. Monday. For real this time. If that level of people-watching is too intimidating, hit up RedBar on 10th, where all you have to look at is art. Grill on the Beach: Bring some match-light charcoal and a cooler full of steaks out to Crandon Park on Key Biscayne, and grill 'em up right on the beach. Get in a game of volleyball after. So Miami. 8:15 pm: Sunset and drinks at Scotty’s Landing. Sign the petition to make sure it too isn’t turned into condos, then listen to the regulars talk about how awesome Miami USED to be. If their stories get old, walk over to Monty’s. Guess what? You just had the Best Day of Your Life.
