Valentine's Day is next week. You'll likely be suckered into dropping mad loot on something extravagant like a $1,400 couples massage or $400 surf 'n' turf dinner inside a private pool cabana at the Four Seasons.
Naturally, staying put this weekend and saving your money would be the adult thing to do. Realistically, though, you live in Miami, a city where partying trumps maturity.
Lucky for you, Crossfade's put together a budget-friendly weekend guide. Check out our list of the top ten music-related things to do this weekend under $10.
