The fastest way to win (or lose) a bet in Miami. – In Short
Jai-Alai means "Merry Festival" and is touted by the Basque as the fastest game on Earth. Players whip a goat-skinned ball back and forth in basket-like gloves and seven points is enough to win. It's a popular counterpart to the race track for placing bets and cheering for a quick win.

Even if you don't know your "pelota" (handball) from your "cesta" (basket used to catch the ball), you can still enjoy steaks and seafood while overlooking the jai-alai courts from the fourth-floor dining area. The menu includes American dishes like prime rib and shrimp scampi, as well as Cuban items like chicarrones de pollo (chicken tenderloins marinated in garlic sauce). Between forkfuls, guests loudly root on their favorite players often through the final midnight match.
