Free Events This Week in Miami: The Phantom of the Opera, S'mores, and Halloween
Welcome to Hallo-week 2015, Miami! Our guide to free fun this week comes with two goals: One, to balance the budget that has been totally tapped by your totally badass Halloween costume; and two, to sneak in some culturally relevant events to even out the booze beating your brains are about to take this weekend.
