Got pet issues? Animal lovers are invited to meet Cesar Millan 4:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Humane Society of Greater Miami in North Miami Beach. Millan will talk about the importance of pet adoption and plug his upcoming series, Cesar 911, premiering 9 p.m. March 7 on Nat Geo WILD. In this reality show, the 44-year-old comes to the rescue of neighborhoods “terrorized by badly misbehaving pooches,” according to a release. Bring a copy of his book, Guide to a Happy Dog, and so called Dog Whisperer will sign it, and probably give you a free tip or two. For more info email dani@humanesocietymiami.org or call 305-749-1825.

That ’80s show

If you miss the old days, you can now relive the, um, excitement of Miami in the 1980s through the exploits of Crockett and Tubbs. Lion Forge Comics, in partnership with NBCUniversal, launched a digital comic version of Miami Vice. There is no shortage of speedboat chases, fast cars and brightly colored Armani jackets (sleeves rolled up, of course). Get a copy through the Amazon Kindle Bookstore.

Here’s the beef

Derrick Deal had a spur-of-the-moment thought about Southern charm. It won him $10,000. The senior Florida International University Hospitality Management student submitted a winning burger recipe, dubbed Bubblin’ Brown Sugar Bar-B-Que, as part of Red Robin’s Golden Robin Contest. “I only did one taste test,” Deal, 35, said.

The North Miami resident’s creation, topped with brown sugar bacon, honey barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese and grilled red onions, could end up on Red Robin’s menu in the near future. The national burger chain has locations in Miami and Pembroke Pines.

Deal, who graduated from Miami Northwestern Senior High, served his winning burger at Friday’s Amstel Light Burger Bash; he’ll use the scholarship prize to pay for his last few classes at FIU and to attend grad school at Cornell University to become a hotel general manager: “My goals in life are sending me in the right direction,” he says.

Bright & sunny

Craig Setzer, a mainstay of the CBS4 weather team, has been named chief meteorologist. He will continue to appear on the weekday 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts.
