Free Events This Week in Miami: Furious 7, Right to Wynwood, and Techie Mania
Have you seen Right to Wynwood yet?
This week means the end of all the costumed revelry that is October. The one silver lining is you get to cut down on dress up costs and put that money back to its usual use at the bar or buying meme shirts or whatever you do with your cash (no judgment). Once your post-Halloween hangovers lift, there's a whole week of free fun just waiting to cheer you — from movies to art, and even new technology.
