The best time of the week is finally here — the weekend. The next three days are 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

  • "The Politics of -Isms" at the Wolfsonian-FIUThe library installation showcases historic ephemera that explores real-world problems such as fascism, some debatable economic endeavors like communism, and something to appeal to your inner egalitarian, socialism. The exhibition shows how these movements have shaped 20th-century elections and campaigns. 
  • Taking Off at Coral Gables Art CinemaDirector Miloš Forman may be best known for his American features from the '70s and '80s, such as One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Amadeus, but he also made some pretty cool films in Czechoslovakia, including The Loves of a Blonde and The Firemen’s Ball. Just after leaving Europe for the States, in 1971, Forman made a cool little indie film called Taking Off. It tells the tale of the parents of a girl who runs away from home, but the story doesn't go the way you'd expect. 
  • Things Are Cooking in Overtown at Jungle Island: Overtown's current state of affairs is owed mostly to economic tragedy after highways bisected the neighborhood and cut off its social legs — but it doesn't have to stay this way. As a community, we can come together to help historic Overtown regain some of its former glory. You can help build homes for residents and fund scholarships for students, and you can do it simply by enjoying a meal. For $100 a seat, you can participate in the 17th-annual Things Are Cooking in Overtown, presented by the St. John Community Development Corporation. Dine and be entertained in the beautiful tropical atmosphere of Jungle Island, and know you're making a difference. Those who wish to donate more can do so and be recognized as a partner for a range of values from $1,000 to $3,500.

Saturday

  • FestiDan at Barracuda Raw Bar and GrillThis year, the Coconut Grove street rager will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday right in front of Barracuda Raw Bar & Grill, smack in the heart of the Grove. Featuring live tuneage from Spam Allstars, Problem Kids, and a slew of local DJs, the 2016 FestiDan will benefit Castaways Against Cancer, “a rag-tag group of kayaking enthusiasts who paddle from Coconut Grove to Key West to raise money for the American Cancer Society during their annual Relay for Life event.”

Sunday

  • El Musiú at Aventura Arts and Cultural CenterThis month, the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center will host El Musiú, a biographical musical and standup show based on the life of the celebrated and widely respected songwriter Ilan Chester. The concert will be presented in Spanish, and at the end of the program, all attendees will receive a free CD and the opportunity to attend a meet-and-greet with Chester. 
  • The Miami Flea at Canvas Miami: Summer is flea season — and we’re not referring to the little bloodsuckers that like to eat your dog alive. We’re talking about the Miami Flea, the 305’s hippest flea market-slash-public activation that celebrates local artisans and unites locals from every corner of the Magic City. Whether you’re looking for arts, eats, or simply a place to take Fido for an afternoon outing, Miami Flea has it all.
