It's not easy having eyes all over the scene, being around to take in all the wild visuals at all the worthwhile places in the city. There are, however, those parties and gallery openings where a fortunate photographer can point and shoot. Every week, in collaboration with WorldRedEye, New Times brings you a solid recap of all the recent experiences you might have missed around Miami. It's impossible to be everywhere, but hey, we can try to keep our Eyes on Miami.

Irie Foundation #inspIRIE Golf Clinic at Miami Beach Golf Course: Every year, the Irie Foundation strives to be a safe place for at-risk youth in the Miami area. One of the ways this is achieved is via the foundation's Cultural Passport program, which takes experiences to children who might not have the chance to take part otherwise because of personal circumstances. The Irie Foundation’s 13th-annual Irie Weekend kicked off by giving kids the opportunity to learn golf tips from LPGA legend Paula Pearson Tucker. The day allowed them to step away from their struggles to spend a few hours without a worry in the world.
