10 Days of Connection is a community-led initiative to promote kindness and inclusion in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. From May 1-10, participants are invited to attend connection experiences hosted by more than 100 local organizations, and are challenged to step outside of their comfort zone to forge new connections across lines of difference.

In recent years, people have become increasingly divided across lines of difference. Incidents of hate have increased, and tolerance for differing ideas has decreased. For ten days each year, we challenge the entire community to break down silos and engage in acts of connection, to build empathy, to increase understanding, and to refocus on our shared humanity.

Join in! Our community will be stronger when we all commit to focusing on what unites us instead of what divides us. A full calendar of events is available at http://bit.ly/ConnectionEvents2019.

Join the conversation by following @ConnectMiami on Facebook, @10dofc on Twitter and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #10DaysOfConnection to share your experience. Learn more at.

HIGHBALL’R Miami 2/23/19

HIGHBALL’R Miami
Saturday, 02/23/2019 – 12:00 pm –
Melinda's
2826A N Miami Ave,
Miami, Florida 33127
Website
Cost: Free

Wynwood mezcaleria Melinda’s announces today that it is partnering with other South Florida bars and Q, the Brooklyn-based maker of spectacular mixers, to host “HIGHBALL’R,” a celebration, open to the public, of the simple, yet incredibly elegant highball cocktail.

WHAT: HIGHBALL’R Miami

WHEN: Saturday, February 23, 12 noon

WHERE: Melinda’s (2826A N. Miami Ave.)

WHO: HIGHBALL’R Miami is open to the public

HOW (MUCH): Admission is free

A special HIGHBALL’R menu of highball cocktails will be available for one night only, with drinks from an all-star cast of South Florida bartenders including Gaston Gonzalez (Casa Florida), Diego Nave (Tacology), Emiliano Gonzalez (Casa Florida), Ricardo Astudillo (Ilegal Mezcal), Alejandro Noriega (Santa Teresa), and Marco Nava (Cantina la Veinte).

Esquire declares “The highball is making a comeback…They are the antidote to seven-ingredient mixology hijinks, a respectable respite from your martini habit, and the drink of the post-experienced drinker.”

So what is a highball? To say it’s a couple ounces of spirit (whiskey, gin, etc) poured into glass and topped with a haphazard squirt of club soda or tonic is to undervalue what differentiates a highball cocktail from the vodka-sodas we all drank in college.

A truly great highball is built from the glass, up. It starts with a sleek, slender highball glass a chilled at freezing temperatures. The glass is removed from the freezer and filled with “ice so clear that you can read fine print through it.” About two ounces of spirit are added. And then, holding the glass at an angle, the bartender pours slowly the chilled mixer of choice. This technique maximizes the mixer’s carbonation ensuring the drink is just as fizzy on the last sip as the first.

Esquire continues, “The attention to detail is palpable. There’s a bracing fizz and a steady undercurrent of whisky from first sip to last, with no watered-down sludge at the end; ye olde whisky soda, by comparison, tastes like a bad accident.

When asked ‘What’s in a highball and what makes it different?’ Masahiro Urushido of New York’s Katana Kitten replied, ‘Care and love. It’s all about how you make it.’

The National Hotel, the cinematic Art Deco treasure in the heart of South Beach, is partnering with Neighbors 4 Neighbors, a nationally recognized nonprofit and partner of local broadcast station CBS4, to host Chefs 4 Neighbors, a culinary benefit event to raise funds to support individuals and families with immediate needs. Proceeds from the event will go towards Neighbors 4 Neighbors’ Family Fund and victims of Hurricane Michael through a partnership with Farm Share. The Family Fund program offers financial assistance to otherwise self-sufficient individuals who have an immediate need or emergency, preventing them from entering the cycle of poverty. The Family Fund will purchase supermarket gift cards for families experiencing food insecurity.

“During hard times, people economize by going hungry, and with 37% of Miami-Dade households either in poverty or making ends meet, it is important we host events like these to support those in need in our community, especially true after a natural disaster such as Hurricane Michael,” said Yaser Mohamad, General Manager, National Hotel. “By supporting Neighbors 4 Neighbors’ Family Fund, we are helping restore the financial self-sufficiency of individuals who are willing to work but are temporarily unable to do so or are going through unexpected hardships.”

Some Waste, While Some Want: Food Justice Presented with Hungry Harvest

It’s no secret that South Floridians love their Cuban coffee, but how good are they at guessing how many beans fill a jar? Colada Cuban Coffee House and Eatery in Flagler Village is celebrating National Coffee Day by giving away a year of free coffee to one lucky coffee lover who can “guesstimate” how many coffee beans are in a glass jar at Colada. Every day leading up to National Coffee Day on Saturday, September 29, Colada guests are invited to cast their predictions, and then at 9 p.m. on National Coffee Day, the person who guessed the closest will be announced and receive an official Colada card for one free coffee a week for an entire year!
In addition to Colada’s Coffee Bean Challenge, now through National Coffee Day, guests who check in at Colada on social media and/or Yelp! will receive a free fresh Cuban pastry with any purchase.

Menu
Colada’s delicious Cuban-American- inspired menu offers guests a varied selection of authentic Cuban food and beverages made fresh daily. The popular breakfast menu features an assortment of coffees, including cortaditos, Cuban coffee, iced coffees and café americanos, along with a tempting list of breakfast sandwich options made with combinations of eggs, meats and cheeses. Lunch favorites consist of some traditional and some not-so-traditional choices, such as a Cuban Philly sandwich made with fresh ropa vieja, sweet and spicy guava chicken wings, empanadas or a make-your-own Colada bowl, which involves choosing a protein, base, toppings and a signature sauce. Fritas, guava pastries, croquettes and delectable desserts, including Cuban flan and tres leches, are also available.
