Miami Free Times: Orson Welles, Cocaine Cowboys, and Fresh Art
Monday: Known for its convoluted plot but delicious noir atmosphere, The Lady From Shanghai screens poolside at the W Hotel. Orson Welles not only directed and starred in it; he cast his then-wife, Rita Hayworth, as the female lead. You can watch it for free this Monday night - thanks to the Miami Beach Cinematheque.
Tuesday: Part of living in Miami is rubbing elbows and sipping cocktails with those more beautiful and more affluent than you. Accomplish both at Delano Tuesdays in The Florida Room, where there's no cover charge but you'd better look like money to get in.
Wednesday: There's fresh, organic produce for sale in Overtown! No really, it's true. Visit the freestanding Roots in the City Farmer's Market on NW Second Ave. and 10th Street. Look for it every Wednesday until the end of the month.
Thursday: The Historical Museum of Southern Florida is presenting a free screening of Cocaine Cowboys, one of the best documentaries about Miami. The filmmakers and featured personalities will have a panel discussion after the screening.
Friday: Catch the latest crop of Miami artists at the New World's BFA show. There's no fee to see this showcase of new art talent, who are young enough to keep the avant in the avant-garde.
