The Ten Best Things to Do in Miami This Weekend

Nature: She's kind of a dick, right? Admit it. In most other parts of the country, people are stressing about their carbon footprints while admiring the changing colors of the leaves and stocking up on cozy sweaters for the winter. Here in Miami, meanwhile, it can be hard to love Mother Earth when she makes us sweat half the year and threatens us with potentially fatal hurricanes throughout the other half.

Then again, Nature has good reason to act like a jerk. You think you're hot? Try dealing with global warming when you are literally the globe.

This weekend, you can attempt to placate the Green Goddess at the Friends of Nature Festival. But even if you can't get past Ma Earth's constant resting bitchface syndrome, there are plenty of other sweet ways to spend your weekend.

Friday

Cycling Night at New World Symphony: Bikers of the non-motorized variety get a dose of classical culture for just $2.50. Sweet.

Tobacco Road's 101st Anniversary Bash: This bar keeps getting older, but we patrons sure aren't getting wiser. Another round of shots, please!

Krewella: My little sister watched a high school couple get engaged at a Krewella show in Charlotte this week. So this is that kind of party.

The Stage's Third Anniversary: DJ Laz makes a special appearance to support the Design District venue. Pro tip: The traditional third-anniversary gift is leather. (Rowr.)

Lucky You! 6: Bakehouse Art Complex is practically giving art away tonight, y'all.

 

Saturday

Friends of Nature Music Festival: Matisyahu, We Are Scientists, Wyatt Cenac, Nikki Glaser -- Nature is, like, totally popular.

Second Saturday Art Walk: Last one before Basel!

Miami Hurricanes vs. Virginia Tech Hokies: Last week was, um, rough. But the Canes can totally dominate any team called the Hokies, right?

"Up & Away": Party with local artist Alex Yanes one last time before he takes his masterpieces on tour.

 

OMGPUPPIES at the Miami Short Film Festival.
