The Ten Best Things to Do in Miami This Weekend

Hey! We know you've likely been partying for days on end, but don't go to sleep just yet. It's Friday, and with it comes the final weekend of Winter Music Conference 2014. Plus, it's the official kick-off of Ultra, and that noise is going to keep you up regardless.

But if you're trying to escape the beat, there's plenty of entertainment alternatives. You can dress up like a person from thousands of years ago and drink beer with friends, or maybe hit the opera for some high-brow fun. Hell, Jay Leno is in town. Things are about to get weird.
