Looking for the perfect place to people watch on St. Patrick’s Day? Perfectly perched at the entrance of Miami Beach’s charming Espanola Way is Oh! Mexico, a Miami Beach gem for locals and visitors since its earliest days as one of the island’s first Mexican restaurants. The Mexican mainstay has been servicing South Florida authentic cuisine for 25 years. On Friday, March 17, Oh! Mexico will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with Shamrock Shots ($8), a mix of house tequila and apple pucker all day long.

Another great people-watching perch is Paperfish Sushi, also located on Espanola Way.

Cheers!

Salt & Straw
The Portland-based ice cream brand will be highlighting one of the flavors in its Cereal-sly Delicious Series to celebrate St.Patrick’s Day this year. The Pots of Gold & Rainbows is a legendary favorite – the Salt & Straw team hand-sorts the luck from the charms, steeping the whole-grain cereal in cream for that bottom-of-the-bowl sweetened milk flavor before stirring in mountains of rainbow marshmallows. While the flavor is available in a cup, cone or by the pint, in celebration of the holiday, guests will be able to order an Over the Rainbow Milkshake made with the specialty flavor.
Salt & Straw has multiple Miami locations. For more information, visit their official website.
