The Ten Best Things To Do This Weekend in Miami
Mansion's VIP bar gets an '80s bar makeover this weekend.
Take a deep breath. Not only is the work week almost done, but that inhale wasn't one big gulp of gross humidity. Summer is officially gone in Miami, and that means a lot less heat, a little less rain, and actually enjoying the journey to all the fun stuff there is to do.
Concerts, beer, and pumpkins await. It may not be a typical autumn weekend here, but by God it's gonna be a great one.
