Miami's Ten Best Things to Do Under $10 This Weekend
Kick back, relax, and get your party juices flowing ... It's Friday!
By the end of the weekend, you would have gotten your eggs fried at the Electric Pickle (you'll understand what we mean in a few seconds), jammed with the Jacuzzi Boys at Churchill's, and busted a move with Mom at the Backyard Boogie for Mother's Day, all for less than a Hamilton.
Here are the ten best things to do under $10 this weekend. You're welcome.

Free before 1 a.m. with password "Fry My Eggs." Sure, you'll sound weird telling someone "Fry My Eggs," but if you get to party with Andrew Ward, Pirate Stereo, and Santiago Caballero for free, browse through Jacked Fashion's pop-up shop, and quench your thirst with open bar from 10 to 11 p.m. for doing so, then it's definitely worth the embarrassment.
Peachfuzz. With DJs Pase Rock, Aliyo, and DZA. Friday, May 9, 11 p.m. The Garret at Grand Central, 697 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-377-2277; grandcentralmiami.com. Free.

Our very own rock 'n' roll heroes may have opened for Vampire Weekend during their two night stand at the Fillmore Miami Beach last week, later taking their talents to the Big Guava fest up in Tampa, but if we had to guess their thoughts on the matter, we're pretty sure they'd say there's no place like home. Jam with the Jacuzzi Boys as they put on one of the final shows at Churchill's with the People's Temple, Psychic Mirrors, and the Gun Hoes.
