Free Events This Week in Miami: Basel Closing Party, Tree Lighting, and 2 Fast 2 Furious

With Basel behind you, it's likely you're feeling dehydrated, sleep-deprived and seriously sick of conversations about art. So. Much. Art speak.

You could probably use a break. But it's a brand new week, and the best time of the year in Miami, so this is no time to head into hibernation. Start fresh today with a whole host of free stuff to do (because you probably blew your budget on Basel), courtesy of Cultist.
