This is it. The last week we have left to enjoy the charms of our fair city before it's time for Memorial Day weekend's mass exodus. Live it up, folks, because the end is near.
And if you're planning to drop big bucks over the holiday, no worries -- there's lots of free stuff going on before Friday afternoon rolls around. So you can save your pennies for when you really need them.
In Defense of Chocolate at Whole Foods: Get schooled in how chocolate can kick things up a notch -- both in the kitchen and the bedroom. If it was good enough for Montezuma and the Mayans, it's good enough for you.
Blow Up Screening at the Wolfsonian: Get a little Italian in your life with this classic 1966 flick about a photographer who thinks he eyeballed a murder. You can cruise the rest of the museum too, free of charge.
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.
