The weekend is finally here, and you've earned your time to kick back and unwind. This weekend, Miami offers up some warm weather-appropriate entertainment, from theater (indoor to keep you cool), to getting drunk at Zoo Miami. Don't forget that Sunday is Mother's Day, so make sure to treat the woman who brought you into the world.
Happy weekend, Miami.
