As Miami Beach Pride Week begins Friday, local restaurants are offering unique concoctions and special events to honor the occasion. There is no shortage of ways to partake in the week-long celebration, from rainbow milkshakes to a groovy drag brunch.
Here are some establishments providing exclusive specials:
South Beach’s new retro American hangout is known for its signature over-the-top milkshakes. To celebrate Pride Week, the diner has created a bright and flavorful Strawberry Rainbow Milkshake loaded with sprinkles, whipped cream and a chocolate and Fruit Loop rim for $13.
The Italian neighborhood eatery provides a special Groovy Brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sept. 11. The event is hosted by local drag queen Jasmine Pryce Lords with live performances from Coco Lords (pictured) and Kahtya Tehnsion. During the show, guests can enjoy Italian staples like rigatoni with wild mushroom ragù, rosemary and black truffle Moliterno and Bomboloni ricotta doughnuts, and unique Negroni cocktails, which coincides Negroni Week along Collins Canal. Attendees can also conveniently attend the Sweet Spot Pride event on the rooftop.
Wynwood’s ‘superfood and super froyo’ shop features a menu crafted by LGBTQ+ Chef Todd Erickson, which features a limited-edition Pride Passion Fruit flavor available throughout September. Prices start at $3.50 for a cup and 100% of net profits will go to charities that support girls’ empowerment.
