The weekend is finally here, and it's not your typical weekend, the holiday weekend affords you the opportunity to see even more of the 305 (assuming that you're staying in town). This weekend offers plenty of diversions, from dance to baseball, outdoor events and more. Plus, the king and queen of Miami — Trick Daddy and Trina — close out the weekend at Story.
