This week has been a long one for Miami and the nation. We've elected President Trump, had our morning-after political hangover, and spent a lot of time at the water cooler asking, "What the f—-?" It's time to forget all of this political chow-chow for a few days and enjoy. This weekend offers a ton of events — from snagging a free beer to howling at the moon to stuffing your face with hot dogs or heritage pork.

Weekend starts now!
