The weekend is upon us once more and so we've rounded up some of the best things happening around town. There are some great distractions from holiday planning and last minute shopping: Borscht Film Festival dominates the weekend, but there's also dance, snow, Frozen, and punk. Happy weekend, everyone.

Friday:

  • Teo Castellanos' Fat Boy at Adrienne Arsht Center: Choreographer Castellanos revives and revises his acclaimed 2011 production. Read more about Castellanos' long and interesting career here.
