Miami's a city full of ballers. Poppin' bottles with celebs on South Beach, makin' it rain dolla, dolla bills at King of Diamonds, and dropping stacks of Benjamins just 'cause it's the motherfucking weekend. That's how we roll.
Alright, that's a bunch of bullshit. Crossdade's never made it rain, those bottles were comped, and the only stacks of Benjamins we're dropping these days are on student loan paybacks. Nevertheless, we still ball hard. We're ballin' on a budget, yo.
Check out Crossfade's picks for the best things to do this weekend under $10.
