Miami Free Times: World Cup Fever, Skater Silk Screens, and Jonathan Eig

It's funny to think that rich, fancy folks pay for sweat lodges when all we have to do is step outside for the next 3-4 months. Are you feeling grateful yet? Yeah, us neither. As you'll notice, all of this week's free recs happen indoors. The days of moonlit concerts and arepa-filled street festivals are now in the past. Stay inside, reapply the deodorant, and crank up that AC.

Monday: Local silk-screen artist Rocky Grimes is exhibiting his designs in Kidrobot, an über chic toy store in South Beach. You may be inspired to purchase a Grime tee or a Kidrobot Munny, but there's no charge just to look.

Tuesday: Wall Street Journal reporter Jonathan Eig discusses his new book Get Capone: The Secret Plot That Captured America's Most Wanted Gangster at Books & Books. You may have seen his critique of baseball memoirs in last Sunday's New York Times Book Review. The reading is free.

Wednesday: What's free on hump day? Every Wednesday, Locos Por Juana side project Xperimento plays a show at Jazid. No cover!

Thursday: Over sixty South Florida artists have their

small-scale paintings, drawings, photos, and sculptures on display at

Artformz in Wywood for the "Small Wonders" show. Admission is free, and the art is actually affordable.

Friday: The World Cup starts on Friday and you can channel all

that Ole, Ole, Ole energy into a smattering of viewing parties at local

bars. We recommend the lively spots of Churchill's Pub, Brazilian

joint Botequim Carioca, and Segafredo on Lincoln Road. First up? South

Africa vs. Mexico.

To get your soccer juices flowing, here's 50 of the best World Cup goals set to a really crappy Foo Fighters song:
