Cue the cat videos and food delivery: It's National Lazy Day. A day to shirk all adult duties, August 10 is a blessed unofficial celebration of nonstop Netflix and making that freshly laundered pile of clothes the perfect couch nest. For those sun-addicted South Floridians, dozing in hammocks and passing out poolside are also appropriate Lazy Day activities. Added bonus: being lazy is usually pretty cheap.

If you're feeling energetic — quit bragging — you could of course venture outside and walk or whatever. Whether you're ready to take Monday by the balls or plan to hibernate until Tuesday, we've got a crop of free fun to stimulate your post-weekend brains.

Monday

  • Downtown Farmers Market at Arsht Center: Keep your Monday fresh and lazily stroll the market.
  • "Kindsight" at FIU Miami Beach Urban Studios: Take a final view of this celebration of everyday life through combined words and images today at the FIU space.

Wednesday

  • Coming to America at Shirley's: Eddie Murphy in his glory days, Arsenio Hall in drag, and James Earl Jones as an African king pre-Lion King days. If you haven't seen this movie, fix it.
