Well, kids, this is one of the few weekends a year that pretty much everyone in Miami ducks and covers for in South Beach.
While the rest of America recognizes Memorial Day weekend with patriotic parades, and ceremonies honoring fallen soldiers that have fought for our country, South Beach commemorates the fallen with a few beers and a trip to the beach (and a face-eating zombie or two).
To each their own, but we could learn to be a little classier. For those who aren't skipping town to avoid the masses of tourists in the 305, here are the ten best things to do this weekend.
Benoit & Sergio: Experience EDM masterpieces in the flesh.
Eve Sussman | Rufus Corporation: A five-part installation film that runs simultaneously!
Free Art Fridays: Seriously, who turns down free?
Yngwie Malmsteen: Still don't know how to spell his name. Never will.
Radioboxer: Say goodbye to the drama-free power pop band as they amicably split into different directions.
Drag Queen Bingo Night: Serving bingo realness!
Sizzle Miami: If you want to let them know there's steak for dinner, you've got to let them hear it sizzle.
Best of the Best Concert: After 6 years of festivaling, Best of the Best is returning to its Caribbean roots.
