Y'all watch the final episode of the The Franchise last night? Well, we're miserable, quite possibly the saddest sacks of sunflower seeds in Major League Baseball. But the Marlins' front office is confident that 2013 will be the year of the Fish.
Sure ... Until then, it's goose eggs, blowouts, and empty seats for the home team. Of course, the consolation for players and fans alike: America's playground is just a short drive from the Marlins Park.
So here are Crossfade's six best club parties on South Beach this weekend.
