It's Veteran's Day and gorgeous outside. If freedom and clear blue skies are any indication of what the weekend has in store for us, we're in luck.

We'll start off celebrating Miami's oldest bar on Friday and finish off doing keg stands at the West 24 parking lot of Sun Life Stadium. America! Hell yeah!
