Sleepless Night is the answer to an insomniac's prayers. Spanning much of Miami Beach, Sleepless Night will offer free music, art, and entertainment November 5 to 6 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Sleepless Night is modeled after Nuit Blanche in Paris and Montréal's All-Nighter and is held every other year. The last edition, in 2009, drew over 100,000 people despite gale force winds for part of the evening.

We've compiled a list of events centered around food, whether they be events at a restaurant or a place for free food and drinks. For a complete downloadable guide to Sleepless Night, visit sleeplessnight.org.
