Cue the cat videos and food delivery: It's National Lazy Day. A day to shirk all adult duties, August 10 is a blessed unofficial celebration of nonstop Netflix and making that freshly laundered pile of clothes the perfect couch nest. For those sun-addicted South Floridians, dozing in hammocks and passing out poolside are also appropriate Lazy Day activities. Added bonus: being lazy is usually pretty cheap.

If you're feeling energetic — quit bragging — you could of course venture outside and walk or whatever. Whether you're ready to take Monday by the balls or plan to hibernate until Tuesday, we've got a crop of free fun to stimulate your post-weekend brains.


  • Downtown Farmers Market at Arsht Center: Keep your Monday fresh and lazily stroll the market.
  • "Kindsight" at FIU Miami Beach Urban Studios: Take a final view of this celebration of everyday life through combined words and images today at the FIU space.



  • Coming to America at Shirley's: Eddie Murphy in his glory days, Arsenio Hall in drag, and James Earl Jones as an African king pre-Lion King days. If you haven't seen this movie, fix it. 
  • Scratch & Sniff at Canvas Miami: A night with three DJs, six turntables, local bites, and craft beer. Send that RSVP!


  • Nerd Nite Miami at Gramps: Explore the Uncanny Valley — also known as our specific aversion to human-like robots — the future of In Vitro, and the recent outpouring of board game love. 


  • Voleur (thief) at Dimensions Variable: Don't miss the final performance from Jamilah Sabur and Andy Robert, in conjunction with the art space's last downtown Miami exhibition, "Sounds Like."
  • Adam's Rib at Wolfsonian: Another celebration of ladies taking charge in film, this movie stars Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn as Adam and Amanda Bonner, a husband-and-wife attorney team, both drawn to a case of attempted murder.

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.
