The Best Things to Do in Miami This Weekend

The best time of the week is finally here — the weekend. Miami offers just about every activity this weekend. Get a taste of Oktoberfest at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden on Friday or celebrate American Indian Day at Miccosukee Resort & Gaming on Saturday. On the music front, you can catch Trick Daddy at Grand Central, Franck Roger at Electric Pickle, Feel the Spirit at The Garret at Grand Central, and teen heartthrob Nick Jonas at the Fillmore. Here's a glimpse at what our city has to offer this weekend, so get up and get ready for another memorable, Miami-style weekend.

Friday:

  • Oktoberfest at Miami Beach Botanical GardenWho doesn’t love an excuse to drink too much beer and speak sloppy German? This year, Miami Beach Botanical Garden will host its first incarnation of the famous celebration. There will be lawn games; unlimited beer samplings from breweries such as Funky Buddha, Islamorada, and other local spots; plenty of food; and even a pie contest, with attendees voting for their faves.
  • Flannel Beach Album Release Show at GrampsThe Doom Years compiles eight years of so-called Floridian mangrove punk into one 12-inch vinyl, whose sale proceeds will benefit the South Pointe Park Coral Nursery. Come through at 7 p.m. to catch an all-star jam from Ricardo Guerrero, Dino Felipe, and Rick Fantasies.

  • Feel the Spirit at The Garret at Grand CentralWhile he would go on to an illustrious career as a producer, putting his Midas touch on chart-topping hits by the likes of Madonna and Whitney Houston, Benitez's artistic identity today remains firmly rooted in that golden era of nightlife he helped found.

Sunday:

  • Weird Miami Bus Tour at Bas Fisher Invitational: Led by Haitian-born artist and muralist Serge Toussaint and locally bred sculptor Michael Loveland, hang out and drink to your heart’s content while these two strange and artistic minds explore the landscapes and people spots that inspire their work. Points of interest include botanicas, bakeries, auto parts stores, and secret alleyways.
  • Nick Jonas at The Fillmore: His singles “Chains” — whose video was shot in Wynwood — and “Levels” are burning up the airwaves. The young singer will be in town to promote his self-titled debut solo album.
