Art Basel Miami Beach is in two weeks. So what the hell do we do with ourselves until then? Fortunately, the city's got us covered the next three days.

Not only does the Miami Book Fair International kick off its massive street fair this weekend, but a few venues are diving into their Basel festivities early.

Art, culture, fun, with a promise of cocktails tying it all together -- just another fabulous Miami weekend.
