The Ten Best Things to Do in Miami This Weekend

If everybody's working for the weekend, then these are the moments we live for. Thank goodness it's Friday, and with that comes another action-packed weekend of free and fancy events alike, because this city knows how to make the most of a couple days off.

While the rest of the country swarms our beaches on Spring Break, we're wrapping up an international film festival and dancing in funny costumes. A Motown legend is coming to town, and you have the chance to catch up on all the Wes Anderson films you've already seen. Plus, break out the green beer, cheer on your champions, and much more.
