Pop the Dom. Buss that wallet open. Hit the ATM. Repeat.

If you've never done Memorial Day in Miami, here is a warning: It's going to get expensive. The bottles aren't cheap. And neither are the hookups. But if you wanna party (or you know, remember the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces) like a boss, you can't be counting dollar bills.

Go raid the bank, rent a 'Rari, and -- to quote veteran baller -- Young Jeezy, "kill the club."
