Phuc Yea Celebrates Local, Female Artisans with Collaborative Woman’s History Month Activations
Who runs the world? Girls! Phuc Yea – the modern Vietnamese mainstay located in the heart of Miami’s bustling MiMo neighborhood – is saluting women all month long with several activations in celebration of Women’s History Month. Beginning March 1, 2021, ladies dining in will receive a complimentary bottled cocktail to take home, “The Future is Female” – a unique riff on a classic El Presidente, this Cuban-inspired libation is made with brown butter-washed Bacardi 4, Ferrand, Dry Curacao, Tempus Fugit Gran Classico, Dolin White Vermouth, Buckspice, and Bitters. Ladies who post a cocktail selfie and tag @phucyea & @ani_emmmmm can enter for a chance to win a swag bag – winners will be announced weekly throughout the month of March.
Phuc Yea will also be inviting guests to support Miami-based women moving-and-shaking in the hospitality industry by offering an array of limited-time menu additions from the badass women at: Drinking Pig BBQ, The Dumpling Lady, Pudding Parlor, and Bang Bang Bakehouse. In short, each of the aforementioned, female-owned pop-up concepts will be showcasing an original dish on the Phuc Yea menu through Wednesday, March 31. Menu items follow:

For co-owner Aniece Meinhold, celebrating the power of women is personal – Phuc Yea’s humble beginnings as a “pop-up” concept paved the way for many up-and-coming female artisans in the Magic City. “Having a whole month to shift our attention and action toward female accomplishment is as important in 2021 as it was in 1921; especially after the year, we’ve had. We can’t celebrate the power of women without reflecting on the leaps we’ve made (and continue to make every day) toward gender equality and that’s what we want to hone in on with these activations. I look forward to shedding some well-deserved light on these talented women in our community who empower us to reach our full potential.”
