American Social (AmSo), is known for their eclectic selection of craft beers and creative cocktails. Starting in April, the waterfront gastropub is sharing the breadth of their brew knowledge by giving guests the hop-portunity to meet, greet and learn from local breweries while sipping exclusive flavors on tap. On Tuesday, April 21st from 8 to 11 p.m., American Social Brickell is hosting a Funky Buddha tap takeover showcasing South Florida’s largest brewery.

Exclusive taps for the April 21st soiree include Last Snow, a liquid indulgence with flavors of coconut, coffee and white chocolate; More Moro Blood Orange IPA, an American varietal of blood orange with deep, crimson red flesh, a mellow citrus flavor, sticky malt body and long grapefruit hop finish; Fire In The Hole Raspberry Habanero Red Ale, a malty red ale that pops with pleasantly fruity undertones, whole raspberries and just enough habanero peppers to create a pleasant tingle; and Bonita Applebum, made with cinnamon, vanilla and apples with a cinnamon-vanilla aroma for a full, round and beautiful sip. Brewery representatives will be available to educate patrons on craft beers and their Oakland Park facility.

“Learning about beer is just as important as tasting it,” says American Social Partner Paul Greenberg. “Craft beer is a quickly growing segment in our industry and with more than 50 beers to choose from at American Social, we are pushing to educate our patrons on the brewing process and ingredients of the products we serve.”

American Social Brickell features an energetic atmosphere among the crisp downtown skyline, complete with live music, an award-winning menu and perfectly-placed HD-TVs for enjoyment from any seat, both inside and out. Their menu of classic American comfort food and farm-to-table selections is a two-time consecutive winner of South Beach Wine and Food Festival’s Best Bite on the Beach. Sip by the Miami River with complimentary boat dockage.

Empowering the next generation of young entrepreneurs in South Florida, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), a leading non-profit organization that teaches at-risk young people to think like entrepreneurs and enables them to find their own path to success, will host the annual Ignite Entrepreneurship Launch Benefit on May 2nd, at the Palm Court in the Miami Design District, to kick off the Ignite Entrepreneurship series of events presented in conjunction with eMerge Americas, a five-day technology conference in Miami that connects the best and brightest from the startup and funding ecosystems. All proceeds will support more than 3,500 young entrepreneurs throughout Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.

The event will gather more than 300 local entrepreneurs and business leaders as well as eMerge Americas attendees to celebrate and support South Florida’s young entrepreneurs.

NFTE’s event will feature a Spirited Startup cocktail reception allowing guests to sample the best of the region’s craft spirits, beers, wines and cocktails. They will also have the opportunity to bid on a chance to spend time with the region’s top entrepreneurs, including Venus Williams and Adrienne Bosh, through the unique Hour with an Entrepreneur Auction. Nancy Dahlberg, the highly respected entrepreneurship writer for the Miami Herald, will receive the Entrepreneurial Spirit award from NFTE, and Jaret Davis, the Co-Managing Shareholder of international law firm Greenberg Traurig’s Miami office, will be honored with the Entrepreneurial Catalyst Award. In addition, guests will dance the night away while enjoying a locally-sourced tasting menu. All proceeds will benefit low-income youth enrolled in NFTE South Florida.

NFTE will also feature five student businesses that have qualified to compete in the May 4th Youth BizPlan Challenge, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at eMerge Americas. These finalists will be chosen at a semifinal competition taking place 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on April 22nd, at Miami Dade College’s Idea Center at the Wolfson Campus. They come from some of South Florida’s lowest-income communities and have completed a year-long entrepreneurship program, culminating in the completion of a unique business plan.

Since 1987, NFTE staff and teachers have been empowering young people not only to start businesses and create jobs, but also to be opportunity-focused, flexible employees ready to fill existing jobs and succeed in life.

By providing entrepreneurship education programs relevant to the real world, NFTE empowers students to own their educations in and out of the classroom and to find their own path to success. Hundreds of thousands of students have discovered opportunity all around them through entrepreneurship via thousands of certified educators worldwide.

: Café Prima Pasta is celebrating their love for garlic with $4.19 specials on Sunday, April 19th in conjunction with National Garlic Day. The three “breath-taking,” garlic-infused appetizers priced at just $4.19 include the Bruschetta, flaky Italian bread topped with chopped vine ripened tomatoes, sweet basil and garlic (orig. $9.95); Calamaretti Fritti, crispy calamari fried in a mixture of authentic Italian bread crumbs and robust roasted garlic (orig. $12.95); and Spinach Sautee, tender baby spinach sautéed in zesty garlic served over hearty cannellini beans (orig. $9.95).

If the permeating smell of the restaurant’s garlic force-field isn’t enough to keep patrons safe from Dracula, repellent vampire cocktails are also available, which include the Baby Prima Martini, Dracula Red Bloody Mary, Vampire Vodka Surprise, and Chef Carlos’ favorite Pinot Noir all priced at $4.19 a glass.

Whether people love it or hate it, the health benefits of eating garlic are now universally hailed. A member of the onion family, garlic has been used throughout recorded history for both culinary and medicinal purposes such as lowering blood cholesterol levels and reducing the buildup of plaque in arteries. It has a characteristic pungent, spicy flavor that mellows and sweetens considerably with cooking.

“A little secret; 15 minutes before we open, I take a sizzling hot skillet of sautéed garlic out into the dining room and splash in some Italian white wine letting off an explosion of garlic goodness fill the air,” admits Gerry Cea, founder of his family’s business, Café Prima Pasta. “In addition to being part of our restaurant’s ambiance, the smell serves as a prelude to the handmade specialty pastas, fresh breads and desserts we prepare to order each day.”
