Christmas is over - you've likely eaten too much lechon , spent too much money, and probably spent too much time with your family. Now's your chance to get out of the house, distract yourself or keep your Christmas guests entertained. There's a lot to choose from this weekend, particularly if you're into over-the-top concerts or boats.

Happy weekend, Miami.

    Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
