Islas Canarias Anniversary Bash

Islas Canarias Restaurant and Bar, the establishment known far and wide for its coveted croquetas (and the yearly sold-out Valentine’s Day heart-shaped croqueta boxes), turns 44 this year.

The anniversary party will take place this Saturday, when you can enjoy bites from the Islas Canarias food truck, mojitos sponsored by Havana Club rum, cafecito sponsored by Bustelo, an Islas Canarias x Unbranded Brewing croqueta collaboration, and a tented pop-up lounge with Croqueta County merchandise available for purchase.

Those who can’t make it to the party can find that same merch at the new Croqueta County online store, where croqueta lovers can purchase T-shirts, onesies, and toddler apparel.

3 to 6 p.m. Saturday, September 25, at Islas Canarias, 13695 SW 26th St., Miami; 305-559-6666; islascanariasrestaurant.com. Attendees are strongly encouraged to RSVP in advance.
