The Ten Best Things to Do in Miami This Weekend

Miami's always been a city in flux, but this week, that change seems more rapid than usual. Some people want to build a ten-mile "linear park" here. Others plan to erect a massive storage facility with an eatery on top. The Coconut Grove Playhouse may now hold not one but two stages. The new construction around town seems endless.

Maybe you're looking forward to these new venues. Maybe you hate all the new development. Either way, you should go to Locust Projects and dress yourself up like a mermaid this weekend. It's not at all related to the changing face of Miami; it just sounds like a silly, fun time.

Read on for that and nine other ways to spend your weekend.

Friday

Rakim: You know you're still a fan of Paid In Full.

Sweeney Todd: Broadway's most macabre musical? Creepy. That same musical performed by children? Prepare for nightmares.

Some Like It Hot: HistoryMiami's ode to Magic City street art closes this weekend. Catch it while you can.

Maritime-themed photo booth at Locust Projects: Because you've always had a thing for Ariel.

Saturday

Boy George: He'll be hurt if you don't show. Do you really want to hurt him?

American Sabor: The Smithsonian's traveling ode to Latin influence in popular music hits Miami.

God Save The Queen: The Queen cover band takes the Fillmore stage. For bonus fan points, ride your bicycle to the show.

Second Saturday Art Walk: Don't even act like you're too cool for that scene.

Conscious Acts of Kindness Pub Crawl: Drink up to benefit the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Sunday

Nine Inch Nails: The latest incarnation of Trent Reznor is worth the drive to Cruzan, no?
