International Women’s Day Specials at Miami Restaurants 2020
Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of the New Times free.
This Sunday, March 8th, marks International Women’s Day. The date was celebrated around the world to pay tribute to the social, economic, and political achievements of women. It’s a day we need to take the time to reflect on our contribution to society, how far we have come to gender equality, and how far we still have to go.
To celebrate the holidays, several restaurants and bars in town have special meals and specials. Below are the best places to visit and share with your favorite ladies. (Unless otherwise stated, celebrations and specials are offered this Sunday.)
