Free Events This Week: Wine Wednesday, Batuke Samba Funk, Food Trucks

After a raucous and hangover-inducing New Year's Eve weekend, the last thing you want to do is head back to work for the first grueling week of 2012. Luckily, we here at Cultist have got your back, and we have a cure for even the worst case of the Mondays.

Though we have no sway over your inability to lose ten pounds/find a healthy relationship/unglue yourself from your Netflix queue of Gritty Foreign Movies Featuring a Strong Female Lead, one resolution we can help you keep is your vow to save money. Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to spend the big bucks -- or wait until the weekend -- to have a good time. Read on for our free picks this week.

Yoga in the park:

For those of you who already feel the need to restore your calm by

Monday night, you can bring your yoga mat to Bayfront Park for an

evening outdoor class.

Tuesday, January 3
BTTR Biscayne Triangle Truck Round-up:

blanket with your friends in North Miami Beach doesn't cost a thing.
