#ThankYouMiami Talks This Week In Miami

Folks, we're gearing up for a busy one here in the 305 thanks to Cinco de Mayo and Mother's Day. Miami loves to celebrate and this week is a double whammy of festivities that put your quiceñera to shame. Here are the upcoming events that caught our attention this week:

Monday, May 4
Tonight we are hosting our favorite friends and bloggers at the Miami Beach Edition for a private martini making class with Absolut Elyx. Keep an eye on our Instagram page and our snapchat (@ThankYouMiami) to join in on the fun!

Tuesday, May 5
This is the night when you can expect to expend most of your energy for the week because Miami has Cinco De Mayo parties to spare. There will be a Cinco De Mayo celebration in Mary Brickell Village, a Cinco de Mayo fiesta with Power 96's Morning Crew at Jalapeño in Miami Beach, and our personal favorite: COYO Taco's Cinco de Mayo Block Party in Wynwood. Come find your favorite Mexican-born Miami blogger (read, me) enjoying COYO's luchador matches, dancing to the march band, and drinking as much Don Julio as is respectable. ¡Viva, México!

If you're looking for a more quiet night out, The Bookstore in the Grove will be hosting a Local Author Night featuring Miracle Herbs & Plants author Cami Onolfo, North of the Grove author William Hobbs, and others starting at 7:30 p.m.

Wednesday, May 6
The city slows down its programming for a night or two to let you recover so go ahead and continue the Netflix binge you started over the weekend. You will need your energy back for when the celebrations pick right where they left off earlier in the week. If you feel like enjoying your mellow night outdoors, grab some vino and snacks and head to the New World Symphony's SoundScape to watch Chevy Chase in Fletch as part of the SoundScape Cinema Series presented by Citi.

Thursday, May 7
If you've regained your energy, congratulations! Your reward is the monthly LoweDown Happy Hour at the University of Miami Lowe Art Museum. For $10, you receive a guided tour of the current exhibition, plus wine, healthy bites, and Bacardi cocktails. Is it any surprise why this event is a local favorite?

Friday, May 8
Center yourself after a long, hectic week at the kick-off of Circa 39's Vino y Vinyasa yoga and wine tasting community get-together. The event, hosted by local Lululemon yogis, will take place every Friday in May in the hotel's tropical courtyard and include a full hour of yoga followed by a tasting of artisanal wines by WunderBar and light bites from The Palms Hotel & Spa's Essensia restaurant.

If you're looking for good music, head to Ball & Chain Bar at 9 p.m. for another Miami Boheme night hosted by award-winning director Joe Cardona that marks the return of Miami Latin funk septet Electric Piquete to the venue's Pineapple Stage. The band will play two sets beginning at 10 p.m.

Saturday, May 9
Kick-off the weekend at The Blogger Meetup's Miami Meet + Sweet event. From 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., you can enjoy delicious cupcakes and other sweet treats while you mix and mingle with other South Florida bloggers at the Miami Beach Women's Club.

Sunday, May 10
Mother's Day comes with a flurry of specials at your favorite restaurants around town like Casabe 305 Bistro, Atrio Restaurant + Wine Room, Bistro Cassis, StripSteak by Michael Mina, and Scarpetta. Tomorrow morning we will be releasing the four places you need to take your mom so she can get the full Miami experience of celebrating with brunch, relaxation, and retail therapy - including where we are taking our mom for brunch. Stay tuned!
