The Ten Best Things to Do in Miami This Weekend
You know you want it.
Rejoice, Miami! Summer's almost over!
In most parts of this country, the end of summer is a real bummer. The weather turns cold, kids grudgingly return to school, and the only thing people have to look forward to is their annual winter vacation to South Florida.
But down here, the end of summer is the beginning of all the action. Just think of all the fun you have to look forward to during the rest of 2013: cooler temperatures, declining humidity, debauched Halloween parties, Art Basel.
Hell, the events of this three-day weekend alone are cause for celebration. From cheering this season's Canes on to their first football victory to showing Robin Thicke what twerking's really all about, here are the ten best things to do this weekend.
