This is a really big weekend for us, Miami.
Actually, we take that back. It's been a huge week for us, and it's going to be an even bigger weekend for you.
Best of Miami dropped live on the Web on Tuesday. The print issues hit stands on Thursday. Our boys on the Heat slayed the San Antonio Spurs last night, and we're crossing our fingers that the bloodbath can carry over through Sunday for the night's game.
So while you're waiting for tip-off come Sunday night, take a peek at our guide for the best things to do in Miami this weekend.
Besides celebrate. Because we usually always have a reason to do that.
