Oh, the wonder of the weekend: three whole nights and two full days filled with nothing but endless possibilities of fun.
But with Tax Day behind us, your pocket may be running short on dollar bills right about now. In the Magic City, however, your 48-hour party bender doesn't have to be put on hold just because you owed Uncle Sam a few bucks. With nothing but a crisp Hamilton by your side, you can still party like a high-roller (or at least pretend to).
Just check out Miami's ten under $10 weekend party guide.
