At 117, Miami is looking damn good for her age. Sure, she's gone under the knife a time or two, but who hasn't? And to celebrate her upcoming birthday, you can live it up at tonight's Magic City Bike Party.
In addition to music (à la bicycle sound systems), a skate park, beer, and cupcakes, there'll be fire breathers, stilt walkers, and other daredevil-esque performances courtesy of Dangerfun Sideshow.
As far as edible options, food trucks will include Ms. Cheezious, Latin Burger, Health Nut on Wheels, and MexZican. "There will be beer for sale on draft and cans," says Rydel Deed of the Miami Bike Scene.
"This is the inaugural event, and it will most likely be a monthly party following every last Friday of the Critical Mass ride. It's not a food truck rally, just an afterparty for Critical Mass riders with food and drink options," Deed adds.
And rightly so. Twelve miles on two wheels is cause for major refueling.

The Magic City Bicycle Collective will also be on hand with a repair stand, music, and T-shirts. You can learn how to change a tire or grease up those gears from these folks.
The party kicks off at 8 tonight, after Critical Mass, at Grand Central Park. Admission to the event is free, and all bar proceeds will go toward improvements and maintenance of the park.
So board those bikes and show Miami some birthday love.
