The best time of the week is finally here — the weekend. The next three days will be filled with music, art, and boozy beverages galore. From Coral Gables to Little Havana to South Beach, these are the best places to be until the sun comes up Monday morning.

Friday

  • International Beer Day at Batch GastropubBatch Gastropub, Brickell's gourmet eatery and drinkery, is offering a free draft pint to every customer who walks through the door this Friday. Everything on tap will be free, including Green Flash West Coast IPA, Blue Point Toasted Lager, Batch Black Barrel, Cigar City Maduro, Guinness, J. Wakefield Brewing El Jefe, and many others.
  • African Diaspora Dance & Drum Festival at the Little Haiti Cultural CenterSponsored by Delou Africa, the three-day cultural fete will showcase art, folklore, dance, drum beats, and — thanks to Delou's recognition as a Knight Foundation Arts Challenge winner — the return of DanceAfrica Miami. At what's known as the nation's largest festival dedicated to African dance, DanceAfrica will make its South Florida comeback after nearly 20 years. This weekend's fest will bring New York's Forces of Nature Dance Theater to the stage, featuring DanceAfrica founder Dr. Charles “Chuck” Davis, among other traditional African dance troupes.

Saturday

  • Tio Vania at Miami Dade County Auditorium On.Stage Black BoxCharacters in the play lament mediocre existences, unrequited love, loveless marriages, the tedium of boring jobs, and the hours wiled away waiting for a change of luck that never comes. Thematically, it’s the sort of play that might seem like a total drag, but Russian playwright Anton Chekhov infused it with enough humor to soften the blow of these hard truths. 
  • We Code/Women’s Weekend at BUILDING.co MiamiPresented by Ironhack, an international coding “boot camp” that prepares “graduate students as full-stack junior web developers,” the intensive two-day workshop will bring together 50 women and teach the fundamentals of web development using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Sunday

  • Just the Tip Comedy Show at Yo Space: Just the Tip Comedy Show combines the ethics of working hard to earn your keep and the loose atmosphere of street performance,because all of the comics featured collect tips throughout the night. Admission is free, but at this monthly event, audiences willingly give it up (applause and cash, that is) to the fearless souls onstage. 
  • Drag Brunch at R HouseWhy should SoBe have all the musical fun? R House's Drag Brunch features top-quality performers bustin' their behinds for a few singles — or fives or twenties. C'mon, Daddy Warbucks, show these gals what you've got! The $40 ticket price includes all-you-can-eat menu items and specialty entrées, plus bottomless mimosas and sangria. There will even be yummy dessert items for $3, but when you've stuffed your face with three plates of mac 'n' cheese, any additional gluttony is up to you.
