The day will start bright and early, with a complimentary yoga class at 9 in the morning, led by the instructors from Green Monkey Miami Beach. Getting in a good stretch at the start of the day sounds like a perfect idea, especially seeing the lineup for the rest of the afternoon.
No guest will go hungry, given the delicious food trucks that are scheduled to set up camp at the Bandshell. Craving a good burger? Latin Burger may be the choice for you. Their zesty twists on all-American classics are a cult favorite. Try The Beast, a burger patty topped with BBQ beef, caramelized onions, cheese and roasted pimento mayo. Craving a vegetarian option? The portabella mushroom burger has your name on it! Fries are a must but make sure to leave room for dessert; the brownie a la mode can’t be missed.
Seafood more your thing? Mobstah Lobstah will be dishing up their addictive lobster rolls. Go all out and order the BLT-style roll, served with thick-cut bacon, lemon butter and cherry tomatoes. Shrimp tacos, classic fish and chips and crab cakes are also offered on the menu, but the shining star is the lobster mac and cheese. Mmm!
After you’ve dined, you can shake and shimmy to tunes from The Family Stone and Grand Funk Railroad.
