Miami Free Times: Mutant Turtles, Soul Music, Jamaican Politics, Tweet-Up
It's so hot outside, movie theaters are opening their doors to harbor Miami's little ones, so they don't spontaneously burst into flames. You can get in on that action as well hear some good music and make some new friends. All for f-r-e-e.
Monday: Catch an eyeful of anthropomorphic turtles under the tutelage a rat sensei at free screenings of TMNT at the Muvico in Hialeah. We know our Mondays could use a little more mutant fantasy and a little less TPS reports.
Tuesday: There's a free dance party going on over the Vag this Tuesday. At Stone Groove, hear blues, jazz, and soul, and sway your sad away.
Or else, hear the former prime minister of Jamaica, Edward Seaga, discuss
his autobiography, My Life and Leadership -- Volume I: Clash of
Ideologies 1930-1980 at Books & Books in Coral Gables.
Wednesday: Can't decide between listening to cumbia, reggae, funk, and
rumba? Then hear them all at Xperimento's night at Jazid. There's no
cover to hear the band's fusion sound.
Celebrating the second printing of Hialeah Haikus, University of Wynwood holds an inspired reading and Q&A at Books & Books.
Thursday: You've spent more late nights with the Cartoon Network than
you'd like to admit, so there's no sense hiding your soft spot for that
talking, yellow sponge with the trousers. This Thursday, catch a free
screening with dozens of squealing kiddies at Sponge Bob Square Pants at
the Cobb Grand in Miami Lakes.
Friday: Every month, we invite all our tweaked-out tweeters and twitters
to meet up at a bar and then we pump them full of free cocktails. This
Friday, our August Tweet-Up takes place at Bar 721. Come one; come all;
