"What is a weekend?" Maggie Smith's badass Dowager Countess once famously quipped on Downton Abbey. Well, we have an answer, and it doesn't involve sitting around the house and watching the latest season of the dreary British melodrama. No -- go out and enjoy the Miami sun and this perfect (yet undoubtedly fleeting) patch of perfect weather.
There are plenty of events to facilitate that: art in the gardens, national parks, and the sweet sounds of jazz. Enjoy the weekend -- you know what it is and you've earned it. Happy weekend, Miami.
