A week into April already? Seriously? It's like someone pressed the freakin' fast-forward button.
But time flies when you're having fun, and let's face it -- this is Miami. We're all about the fun. It's kind of our thing.
On that note, you probably need a few diversions to get you through the work week. Luckily, there's plenty of fun to be had, even before Friday night rolls around again.
Mello Mondays Poetry Dinner Party at South Street: Nosh on soul food while simultaneously feeding your soul by listening to some of Miami's top spoken word artists as part of the O, Miami poetry fest. Nothing stimulates the appetite like good words.
Karaoke at The Stage: Stock up on some liquid courage and belt out karaoke classics. Don't Stop Believin', anyone?
Free Miami Jazz Society concert at the Miami Tower: If your hump day is in need of a little jazzing up, groove to the tunes of the Gary Thomas Quintet for a few hours.
Poetry & Music at the BBar: Make the most of O, Miami, and get another poetry fix, this time, to tunes.
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.
