For many Miami youths, today means life is officially over — or less dramatically, school is starting. We feel you. Mondays don't get any easier as life goes on, nor does funding your desperate need for fun. That's where we come in. Thanks to some generous local creatives and business owners, we've got another week's worth of free entertainment lined up for cash-strapped kids of all ages.
