You did it! You survived Thanksgiving with the relatives. Despite this past election, you bonded over a mutual love of turkey and gluttony. Of course, you also just woke up with the realization that you have to entertain Uncle Bill and Aunt Sally for the rest of the weekend until you drive them to MIA Sunday afternoon.

Luckily, there are a host of things to do with them. From a drive to Knaus Berry Farm for a taste of Old Florida, to Wynwood Brewing for some craft beer. Here are the five best ways to entertain your family this weekend.

1. Knaus Berry Farm Opens for Season
Today is a really good day to take a trip to Homeastead for Knaus Berry Farm's shakes and baked goods. The farm opens at 8 a.m., which means one thing to Miamians: warm, gooey cinnamon rolls. But get there today, because the farm is closed Sunday.

2. Donald Trump Visits Versailles With Rudy Giuliani, Thinks Coladas Are Strong
One day after this election season's first presidential debate at New York's Hofstra University, Donald Trump was drinking Cuban coffee at Versailles in Miami. If you have relatives in from a red state, this could very well be the best way to breach the divide and call a prefect truce — well, at least as long as your cafecito and pastelito lasts.

3. Wynwood Brewing Continues to Trek Forward in 2016 
What's a brewery to do with a 15-barrel brewhouse? Make a lot of beer, which is exactly what owner Luis G. Brignoni, brewer Nik Mebane, and the rest of the Wynwood Brewing Company team are doing in their slice of Miami heaven, 465 gallons at a time.

4. Ball & Chain's Cuban Spring Roll Is a Roller Coaster of Flavor
We recently disclosed the top ten Cuban sandwiches in town. The Cuban spring roll at Ball & Chain was left out. But it is still one of the primary takes on a classic redone. "You can get amazing Cuban food on practically every block down and up Calle Ocho," owner Zach Bush says. "We didn't want to compete." Indeed, competition is eliminated when you serve something no one else makes.

5. The Five Best Restaurants in Miami to Take Out-of-Towners
Whether Miamians like it or not, out-of-towners love to visit the Magic City. And when they do, it's the job of the hosts to show them the best the city has to offer. It's a big responsibility, but we've narrowed it down to the top five restaurants you should take your guests. So although your visitors may leave here complaining about the heat (or cold?) and the traffic, they certainly won't leave hungry.
