Put those Ugg boots and furry vests back in mothballs -- the thermostat is back where it belongs. Eighty-degree temperatures are upon us, and all is right with the world. Well, except in parts of the country where poor saps are still digging their way out of the snow.

Now that you no longer have an excuse to hibernate, get your lazy butt out and about this week with our list of free stuff to do.

    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.
