While temperatures across South Florida have been sinking into boots-and-mittens territory, the Miami Heat has ignited. After taking a drubbing in late November at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks, the Three Kings and their entire entourage went on a tear, winning 12 straight games in December, some by truly ridiculous margins. Despite a setback here and there (like a streak-ending loss to those same Mavericks), it seems the boys in black are finally delivering on their big-time potential, and thats keeping fans nice and toasty inside even when its frosty out there.
Facing down against the Heat this Tuesday is a team going in the opposite direction: the Milwaukee Bucks. Theres sure to be some fireworks going on that night, and what better place for them than a spot known for its smoldering social scene: Wilton Manors institution Georgies Alibi. If the antics of D-Wade and King James arent enough to keep you warm, just turn to the bars two-for-one happy hour until 9 p.m. or its outsized, $5 Van Gogh martinis thereafter. Find Georgies at 2266 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors. Tip-off begins at 7:30 p.m. Call 954-565-2526.
