Things To Do

Free Events This Week in Miami: O, Miami and Florida-meets-France

For those who dived headfirst into the Ultra madness over the weekend, we hope you're still topside. And for those who got the hell out of dodge rather than face the surplus of bodies and traffic jams, welcome back. 

Whether you're bass-drenched and bruised or emerging from your WMC-induced house arrest, it's time to gently get back in to the swing of things. What better way to do it than with a week of free fun?
