#InTheKnow: Miami's Social Distancing Events - Fourth of July Edition
The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly impacted Miami's vibrant energy and social scene. Nonetheless, the closing of Miami-Dade's beaches for the Fourth of July does not mean another boring weekend spent at home. Instead, here are some upcoming events and ways to make the next couple of days not only safe for you and your family, but memorable.
Rodrigo Garduno 54D Workouts:
Any body is a summer body, but gym closures should not stand in your way if you're looking to get in shape. This Fourth of July, join Rodrigo's 54D workouts. Virtual sessions take place every day around 11 a.m., featuring intense and exciting exercises on his Instagram account @ro54d.
Independence Weekend Drive-Thru Food Fair:
Include a food fair in your weekend plans. Admission is free, so put on your mask and browse delicious vendors like Candy Bistro Concessions, Arctic Ice Shaved Ice, Food Junkies, and Stella's Elephant Ears. This food fair will take place at The Little Farm. So, make sure to register and check out the event's details, here.
Mendez Fuel Beer Delivery:
Stock up on your wine and craft beer favorites this weekend by stopping by Mendez Fuel at 3201 Coral Way, Miami's best kept secret and cleanest c-store in town. Celebrate in patriotic style without leaving your home. To accommodate all orders this holiday weekend, the team at Mendez Fuel is extending their same-day delivery deadline to Friday at 4 p.m. So check out asap at www.mendez-fuel.com.

Set A Reminder For These Fourth of July Live Streams:
Even though Miami will miss watching fireworks on the beach, you can catch the fireworks display at the Capitol Fourth Concert in DC. You can watch this event on PBS, as well as live-streamed on YouTube, here. If you're looking to be super patriotic, catch the National Archives' first-ever reading of the original Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
Not Feeling the Grill?

Pie for Dessert:
There's nothing more American pie. Support Fireman Derek by picking up a Limited Edition Flag Pie.
