If you're a real Miamian, you're probably thinking that the recent cold snap is practically a winter blizzard. So put on the Floridian's equivalent of winter wear (it's called a sweatshirt) and get yourself ready for the weekend. The city has a lot to offer this weekend, from opera to rock, Shakespeare to Andrew W.K., champagne sipping and more.

Happy weekend, Miami.
