Happy National Doughnut Day! Let's hope you're celebrating right now by dunking one into your coffee while you're reading this. The workweek was a short one, and it's already time for another great Miami weekend. There's much to do.

Gastropod's Jeremiah Bullfrog's Duck, Duck, Goose challenges a dozen Miami chefs to get creative with duck and foie gras; the Freehand turns into Drink Miami Hostel; and National Eggs Benedict Day is this weekend. You can even find a new gig at the Aldi job fair.
