The world didn't end after all on December 21, so now we all gotta make amends for our bad behavior in 2012.

Sure, we like to pretend the week of Art Basel Miami Beach (AKA Miami Art Week) is all about the glorified flea market happening either side of the causeway. But you just want to party. You can't afford to pay $10,000 for a bike covered in Saran Wrap and called "Untitled." But you can afford the cov ... More >>

When they say Miami is a city built of snow, rest assured they aren't talking about the weather. Even pop culture, through movies like Scarface and TV shows like Miami Vice, have helped equate the city to sweet Lady Cocaine. That's reason enough to honor it by listing some of the best cocaine-relate ... More >>
