Things To Do

Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: Boxing and Brunch, Giant Jackfruit, and Italian Tailgating

Happy Friday. If you've been inside just about any store, you've noticed pumpkins, ghouls,and candy on display -- which means that Miami is gearing up for fall -- even though it's still about a grillion degrees outside.

With fall come some amazing activities like football (and tailgates!), walks in the garden (with rare tropical fruit), and punching the hell out of something (followed by lunch and cocktails). Sounds amazing!

Your weekend starts now!
