This weekend brings another second Saturday art walk, the last before the Art Basel madness really descends on our city, plus all the music, culture, and techie fun you can fit into three days. The only downside? No legal weed to float you through the fun. Chin up, though, we might get our wish in 2016. Until then: Party on, Miami.
