Let's take a little breather from Miami's woes. Sea level rise, invasive cockroaches, and undisciplined cops will certainly stick around for the near future, so we might as well use the International Day of Friendship to cheer the eff up. Instead of watching that Golden Girls marathon alone this Thursday — though that's certainly not the worst way to spend a few hours; they were besties, after all — why not grab some real humans and enjoy the city? Call up the squad, 'cause we've got a bundle of free fun at your disposal.
