Free Events This Week in Miami: Museum Month, Karaoke, and Bike Night

Another week, another crop of weirdos making Florida look bad. All drunk, bikini-clad grandmas and snakebite boys aside, we've had a pretty rich run this month with city-wide poetry fest O, Miami, not to mention this week's Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. For those who can't shell out dough for movie tickets, however, we've collected a bundle of cheap activities sure to satisfy your culture cravings.
