February has been a pretty rough month thus far. In the past 12 days alone, The Real Housewives of Miami has been confirmed for a second season; we found out everyone is cheating on everyone; and Rick Santorum won three caucuses, which is just...we can't.
In the spirit of improving the remainder of the month, here are some events to help you let loose and regenerate. Unfortunately, they will do nothing to change the fact that there is an actual possibility a man whose surname is synonymous with a certain frothy, fecal mix could soon be president.
- Food truckery: Been a while since you've broken out that picnic blanket? Take a break from cooking and head over to 127th & Biscayne Blvd for one helluva food truck flock.
- Get Low: Sounduo, Juan Basshead, Bats, Y Diz, Hoova, MC Jumani and Nome are only a few of the names taking over The Vagabond. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for free admission.
- Strut: Electric Pickle presents a new live music night featuring resident DJ Grace Jones, house band Ausgang and special guest Smurphio.
- Unplugged: A variety of acoustic artists perform at Churchill's Pub. Come for the music, stay for the homemade curries.
- Restless: The Miami Art Museum holds a preview for their newest acquisitions with a talk by artist Dara Friedman. MAM members get in free, but non-members do have to pay $10.

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.
