In honor of The Big Game, Wynwood’s burger and beer hotspot, KUSH, will host a not-to-be-missed party on Saturday, February 1, 2020 – Please Forgive Us Ray Finkle. The brainchild of KUSH Hospitality’s Matt Kuscher
whose concepts are replete with pop culture references – the shindig is an homage to the movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (which was shot in Miami). In the film, Miami’s team mascot and players, including Dan Marino, are abducted by a crazy former player, Ray Finkle, who blames Marino for the downfall of his career. At 3:05PM on February 1st, KUSH will be honoring Finkle, hoping that he reverses the curse he has laid upon the “Dolfans” (Miami Dolphins Fans). With the belief that if they show Finkle some respect and reverence, he’ll lift the hex put on the Miami Dolphins allowing them to make another Super Bowl appearance. KUSH is prepared to do this every year until the Dolphins make the Super Bowl. This is a fun, FREE event that will include a recreation of Ray Finkle’s bedroom, complimentary laces out football cookies and a specially brewed beer by Tank Brewing called “Laces Out”. A portion of beer sales will benefit the local Dolphin Research Center: dolphins.org. Join in on the fun Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 3PM-6PM. The performance takes place at 3:05PM and reservations can be made on Eventbrite. KUSH is located in Wynwood at 2003 North Miami Avenue in Miami. Open Sunday-Tuesday Noon-11PM; Wednesday and Thursday: Noon-Midnight (kitchen closes at 11PM); Friday and Saturday 11:30AM-1AM. Telephone: (305) 576-4500. www.kushwynwood.com
