Just as quickly as it arrived, summer's almost over. Of course, the hot weather won't subside for awhile around here. But we can still celebrate Labor Day weekend like we're bidding goodbye to sunshine and beach days like the rest of this poor, unfortunate nation.
Either way, you need to save your pennies for the three day weekend ahead. Luckily, there's plenty to do this week that won't break the bank.
- Greta Garbo Films Double Feature at the Miami Tower: Check out the classic screen siren in Queen Christina and Anna Karenina and see what the world was like when celebrities had class.
- Running for Brews at Elwood's Gastro Pub: Burn calories, sip brews and make new buddies. You may never go back to the treadmill.
- Miami Five Band at Casino Miami Jai-Alai: Listen to salsa, merengue, cumbia, cha cha, and bolero tunes and catch some jai-alai in action while you're at it.
- Free outdoor jazz at MOCA: Hear the Max Farber Quintet and tour some artsy stuff, too.

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.
