Things To Do

Ten Best Things to Do This Weekend

We're two-and-a-half weeks into November and it's really starting to smell like culture 'round the Magic City.

The Miami Book Fair International's in full swing at Miami-Dade College's Wolfson Campus, wrapping up its weeklong residency this weekend with the annual street fair. Art Basel is just around the corner, creeping up on us quicker than a Middle Eastern uprising.

Pretty soon, the start of Hanukkah. Five days later, Christmas. Before you know it, it's 2012 and we're all dead like the Mayans predicted.

We better make the best of it, y'all--life's too short. Check out some of the killer events going down this weekend in Miami.
