Pop-Up Bar Competition at Zest Miami. Thirsty for only the best booze in the city? Hit up Zest Miami’s Pop-Up Bar Competition. Its 12 weekly rounds and one final competition offer the tasty talents of bartending duos. Each will craft a cocktail menu at the Zest Miami bar in Brickell. But this isn’t just about the libations — it’s about creativity beyond the cocktails. Last year’s champ made a Harry Potter-themed bar; this year, Zest insiders say, expect one honoring Rick and Morty. 6 p.m. Monday at Zest Miami, 200 S. Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-374-9378; zestmiami.com. Admission is free.
