Memorial Day Barbecue Specials
The coronavirus pandemic could cause the days to mix and the inability to spend time on Miami’s beaches may make us less festive than usual, but Memorial Day Weekend is drawing near, marking the unofficial start of summer and with it the BBQ season. And we can still honor the sacrifices of our military personnel, connect with loved ones, and enjoy the comfort foods of our choice in our own homes or outdoors while observing social precautions. Here are some of Miami’s best BBQs open for takeaway, delivery, catering, and in some cases, dining this weekend.
