All of the art fairs have packed up and left town. Au revoir art fairs. And during the lull between Art Week and holiday overeating, there's still plenty to do. Music! Sports! Fashion! A veritable smorgasbord of tasty offerings here in our magical city. Here are our picks.


  • Cosplay Kingdom Miami at House of Rock : Calling all nerds: don your best Frodo costume, put on your best Princess Leia wig and head on down to Cosplay Kingdom. If your Sailor Moon costume puts the others to shame you could win some cash.
  • Victuals, Libations, and Song at the Wolfsonian: Enjoy a World War I inspired Christmas celebration, hopefully minus the mustard gas.
  • A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night at Miami Beach Cinematheque: Movie critics (including one of our own ) have been buzzing about Iranian-American Ana Lily Amirpour's latest film. An update of the vampire flick, it looks worthy of all the praise.
  • Miami Short Film Festival at Paragon Grove 13: This is your last chance to catch this year's short films; the festival closes tonight.
  • Saturday

  • Usher at American Airlines Arena: Are you a lady in the streets but a freak in the bed? Yeah? Then make sure you catch the R & B superstar this weekend.
  • Wynwood Fashion Collective at The Hangar Gallery: Wynwood's own version of Fashion Week is here. Stop by the main event, enjoy a runway show and update your wardrobe with pieces by local designers.
  • D.R.I at Churchill's: The Dirty Rotten Imbeciles prove that, regardless of age, they're as punk as ever.
  • Sunday

  • Serena Williams Ultimate Run South Beach at Lummus Park: Put on the running shoes and get left in the dust by the reigning queen of tennis.
  • Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls at American Airlines Arena : Bleach your best white v-neck t-shirt and hum a few bars of Seven Army Nation.
  • Reggae Sundays at Jazid: Lazy Sundays are perfect for reggae.
  • Follow Cultist on Facebook and Twitter @CultistMiami.

    Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
