As one of the most historic villages in Miami with an eclectic past, Coconut Grove has always been a center of gravity for out-of-towners fleeing cold Northern winters. With the crisp, clear December air, what better way to enjoy the balmy weather than with a Saturday morning bike ride? In this Snowbirds of Coconut Grove edition of the weekly tour, the bike route will explore the neighborhood’s rich history of winter-weary visitors, like Alexander Graham Bell and Robert Frost, as well as the diverse ‘feathered’ snowbirds that flock here every year.

The great weather encourages spending as much time enjoying the outdoors as possible. That’s why I’m looking forward to a Moonlight Concert featuring The Currys at Barnacle State park. Sunday, grab a blanket, some snacks and enjoy a cozy picnic accompanied by a live concert performance under the stars. And while the holiday season brings plenty of festivities and fun, it is important to remember it is the season of giving! In the spirit of generosity, the local lounge Taurus has launched their first annual Taurus Toy Drive. Patrons are encouraged to donate toys for the needy through December 20th, and the bar will offer a complimentary drink on the house.

This weekend also calls for a trip to the up-and-coming Design District for a visit to the acclaimed Oak Tavern. Nestled beneath the gorgeous oak tree for which it’s named and adorned with twinkling lights, the cozy ambience and delicious comfort food makes for a perfect holiday season date night.
