After another soaking wet weekend, we're officially sick of summer. It's time to ditch the umbrellas and say so long to the mutant mosquitoes. Fall, in all its dry, low-humidity glory, can arrive anytime now.

Besides, we miss eating on patios. In the sunshine.

But in the meantime, here's an assortment of stuff you can do this week that won't cost a thing. So you can save your pennies for when the good weather returns.


  • Speed dating at Whole Foods Pinecrest: If you're 36 to 49 and your dating life is looking a little dull, spice it up with fellow locavores. Couples who eat quinoa together, stay together.


  • Orchids 101 at Shenandoah Branch Library: Since we live in a tropical paradise, we might as well know how to manage the gorgeous flora and fauna all around us. Orchids, for example. Learn all about these fabulous flowers and get to greening that thumb.

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.
