Over the Weekend: Aterciopelados and Miami Beach Gay Pride

While our sister paper celebrated Beerfest north of the county line, we kept a low profile this weekend. Well, maybe it's the city that's keeping a low profile. We definitely think things have slowed down since Winter Music Conference, and with the low season only a month away, we don't see things picking up until the fall.

But before the summer heat rolls in, here is what you missed over the weekend:
