Five Fun Ways to Spend Labor Day Weekend in Miami

In most cities, Labor Day represents the end of their two-month summer. In Miami, it means there are only two more months of hot, wet summer weather left! Whatever it means to you, it’s always time for a celebration.

1. Summer Grilling Cooking & Tasting Class at BLT Prime Trump National Doral


Labor Day is nothing without a BBQ, but what if your grilling skills aren’t up to snuff? Sign up for BLT Prime’s Chef Dustin Ward’s Summer Grilling & Tasting Class. Learn how to prep a handcrafted cocktail and a delicious three-course meal using some of BLT Prime’s recipes. The class takes place on the patio at BLT Prime at Trump National Doral and is $50 per person. Space is limited. (305) 591-6606. Wanna stay after class? Take advantage of a $149 nightly rate this weekend for Florida residents.


2. Sounds of Summer at Sole on the Ocean Hotel


It’s safe to say this definitely was the summer of the “Ice Bucket Challenge” which has managed to raise over $80,000,000 for ALS thus far. For those who haven’t gotten wet yet, there will be a weekend of ALS fundraising called Sounds of Summer at Sole on the Ocean Hotel on Sunday and Monday. There will be a group ice bucket challenge, as well as a beachside BBQ prepared by celebrity chef Ralph Pagano and live performances by Junior Jazz & Bradley Brown, Bushwood, Resolvers and Rythmatrix.

3. Hit a club.

All the nightclubs are bringing out their biggest guns for the weekend, and you don’t have to get to work for a few days, so why not? Check out Laidback Luke and Pete Tong this weekend at Story.


4. Take a free tour of PAMM.


In celebration of the holiday, PAMM is offering free guided tours of the museum’s collection to people who buy entrance. Usually, you’d have to pay top dollar for this kind of special attention, but on Monday, the good people at PAMM are offering it up for free.

5. Miami Spa Month


You’ve still got a few more days to take advantage of MIami Spa Month, the juicy promotion running through the end of August. All the swankiest spas in town offer up massages, facials and other serious services for a flat rate of $99. ELLE Spa at the Eden Roc is one such spa offering up interesting services for the promotion including the 105-minute ELLE Signature Mani and Pedi and the Doctor’s Orders: The Ultimate Glow that features 50 minutes of exfoliating goodness.
