Theater, art, and kites: These are just a few of the things that Miami has to offer this weekend. If those things aren't your jam, there's plenty more to choose from. Hear Tony Bennett croon, ogle some boats, or find unusual ways to celebrate Valentine's Day. Whatever it is, enjoy it.
Happy weekend, Miami.
