Chances are your day has gotten off to a rocky, bullshit-ridden start. Today marks the official closing of the Venetian Causeway for repairs, with nine long months of construction and detours ahead. Still, we must persevere. There's lots to look forward to in June, including a month full of unique films shown around the city for Miami Film Month and the Women's International Film Festival kicking off this week. For those who prefer their arts and entertainment on the cheaper side, however, we've got your weekly dose of free activities worth your valuable time.
