Happy Hour at The Forge 432 41st Street, Miami Beach
The Forge has been open for 45 years for a reason – everything about this place is out of this world. Sadly, for anyone on a budget, an evening there can be a little out of reach. Thankfully, on Friday’s, their legendary wine bar has Veuve Clicquot wine on special for $10 a glass and complimentary hors d’oeuvres by Chef Dewey till 9 p.m.
RSVP: Reservations highly encouraged, 6 to 9 p.m.
Ladies Nights at Waxy O'Connors 690 S.W. 1st Court, Miami
Any woman knows that while we usually do our get our own night at bars, they are usually on weeknights. And we all know a weeknight drinking session usually leads to a daytime hangover. Now, Waxy O’Connors on the River is upgrading women to a Friday night of free cocktails from 9 to 11 p.m. But guys shouldn’t feel left out – their cover is $0 all night long too. Well, only if you are on the VIP list, of course.

Lucky Clover Street Party 1111 SW 1st Ave, Miami
We hope the words street and party don’t bring you back to your days of all your neighbors gathering to chit-chat over your moms bean dip. Lucky Clover is closing down the street for a Cinco de Mayo themed bash where there will no doubt be some of the most inexpensive cocktails in town. Get ready for $6 draft beer, $6 margaritas and $4 tequila shots.
RSVP: None, 3 to 5 p.m.
Cinco de Drinko 626 S Miami Ave., Miami
While we would never consider Tobacco Road very “VIP,” their party this Saturday is definitely worth mentioning.

To top it off, there will be drink specials, live bands, DJ Oski and so much more.
RSVP: None, 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
