Style File: Heat Hangouts
With the 'Dream Team' on board this season, Miami Heat tickets are the hottest ticket in town, but even if you don't have a ticket you can still get in on the action. 7s Belkys Nerey shows us how to party like kings and queens in tonight's Style File.
WSVN -- With the three kings on the team, the Miami Heat are ready to play ball and whether you've got a ticket to the game or not, you can still party like kings and queens.
The "Downtown Development Authority" is making it easy for everyone to ride the heat wave.
Leo Zabezhinsky: "We're reaching out to more than 75 restaurants and bars that are going to be having promotions and having happy hour specials for people to come and out watch the game, have dinner before the game, and even stay after the game to hang out in downtown."
One of those downtown hot spots to raise your spirits is Area 31 at the Epic Hotel.
Ellen Marchman: "We love the Heat, they're right in our backyard so we've created a Heat Happy Hour where you can come before the game or after the game."
Starting at five on the nights the heat play you can get $5 cocktails and light bites appropriately named after the dream team.
Ellen Marchman: "Every thing from the MV3 ceviche, which is fresh fish, blood orange a little bit of jalapeno to King Fish croquettes, which we have named 'King James."
Extra bonus it's an affordable and hassle-free place to park for the game.
Ellen Marchman: "We all know how hard parking is around the arena, so if you come to Area 31, you get a validation for $5, you can either walk to the arena or ride the metro mover."
Chef Gabriel Fenton: "We're going to fire up my new Jerk chicken wings."
If you want to watch the game in Aventura, chef Gabriel Fenton at Bourbon Steak is turning up the heat with his super hot jerk chicken wings on nights when the Miami Heat play.
Chef Gabriel Fenton: "I learned how to make this from a Jamaican guy while working in Cape Cod, so this is the real authentic spice here."
Many of the drinks will be half-off too.
John Riccardo: "You can wash down those spicy wings with our famous signatures cocktails. In our lounge we have a 50 inch plasma and we'll be playing the Heat games every time they're on."
If you want to keep things hot on Miami Beach after the big game head over to Picnic in Sunset Harbour.
Stepha Diamond: "Come in with your Heat ticket free round of drinks."
They'll also be showing the Heat games on their high-def projection screen with a picnic of specials!
Steoha: "Tons of drink specials, beer and liquor, as well as a game watching menu we've got mama's chicken wings and our favorite fried oreos."
All-star spots worthy of kings and queens.
Belkys Nerey: "Again the "Downtown Development Authority" is compiling a list of all the places offering hotel, food and drink deals for the Heat games."
