For some (like us), it's just another Friday, but for you lucky guys and dolls, it's the beginning of a three-day weekend, and that means an extra day of debauchery. Or catching up on The Young and the Restless, whichever is more your style.
Miami Carnival jumps off today, so the parties, flag-waving, and country-repping will be at a maximum from downtown Miami to SoBe. The pierced and the painted will be at the Visionary Expo -- a mishmash of tattoos, art, and music -- through Sunday, but showing up today means it's less likely a hungover brute will ink your bod. Out at the Doral Resort, the Puma Open has already teed off, but it's not too late to catch dinner and Vegas-style gaming at 7 p.m. with today's players.
Of course, second Saturdays are for, uh, Second Saturdays. This month is extra-extra-special because New Times will put on a show of some our most amazing covers from the past 22 years. Be at the Miami Art Space and see the collection -- compiled, created, and curated by our incredible design team. Oh, and there'll be an open bar. Why? Because we love you.
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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
