Even through the relative standstill of sticky summer, Miami keeps getting more fun. Sure, our pervasive public transit problems and economic woes haven't been tackled head-on, but Brickell's getting a dine-in cinema! Wynwood's getting a greenhouse-inspired park! Don't harsh the mellow, cynics. Take the recreational wins.
While these exciting additions to Miami are a long way off, there's a weekend full of entertainment right around the corner. Let the beer, manly burlesque, and concerts guide your way.
