Free Events This Week in Miami: Dexter Morgan, J Alvarez, and Pee-Wee Herman

Miami ain't all palm trees and fun in the sun. As frequent news articles and analysis show, most people can barely afford to call the 305 home. The rent is too high, incomes are too low, and our desire for entertainment continues to rise. To keep your spirits up, you have to seek out cheap thrills and discounts wherever you can — and us broke-ass journalists are here to help guide the way.

  • LAB (Locust Arts Builders) at Locust Projects: Check out Locust's current lineup, which features 20 South Florida high school students selected from an open call to create a collaborative exhibition. 

  • Jeff Lindsay at Books & Books: The best-selling author bids farewell to our friendly Miami serial killer Dexter Morgan with his concluding book, Dexter Is Dead. Hopefully, you'll forget all about that awful TV series finale with this literary effort. 

  • Powerpoint Karaoke at the New Tropic: Dive into the world of improv comedy and slideshow presentations.
  • Bessie's Birthday at Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU: Toast and nosh to Bess Myerson, Miss Jewish America turned political powerhouse.
