Free Events This Week in Miami: Comedy Fest, Boat Rides, and Gay Pride
Happy Monday, Miami! We can guess how many of you are feeling on this bright post-Easter day: You're sluggish from ham consumption and ten too many chocolate bunnies. You feel guilt about said gluttony, guilt only made worse by that once-a-year church visit and the latest TV retelling of Christ's crucifixion.
Today is a new day, however, and you can shake off that shame and get right back to sinning and winning, starting with this collection of free fun.
