Welcome to your view for the next five months.
As Miamians, we're perpetually spoiled by our 250+ days of sunshine each year. Vitamin D is our drug of choice (one of them, anyway), so when rainy days befall us -- well, we don't know what to do with our sun-bronzed selves.

That's especially bad this year, since the rainy summer season has hit us early. Get ready to know what seasonal depression feels like.

Still, there's more to Miami than relaxing on the beach and dining al fresco. It's just hard to remember that sometimes. So we've lovingly prepared this guide to staying both dry and entertained on those dark and gloomy days. Enjoy.

Movie night.
10. Catch an offbeat flick at O Cinema.
This joint gets bonus points for ample parking, a lounging couch in the main theatre, and PBR galore. They also show a pretty killer selection of indie flicks that'll keep you titillated despite torrential downpours. Juan of the Dead is showing this weekend, and trust us, it's hilarious.

This ain't your momma's science museum.
9. Be like Bill Nye.
Science isn't just for kids, no matter what elementary school bio may have led you to believe. The Miami Museum of Science offers a surprising variety of absorbing exhibits, including a 3,000-gallon "Sea Lab" touch tank, an interactive immersion theatre where you can tour the human body, and a wildlife center where they rehabilitate -- get this -- raptors. How badass is that? And during Miami Museum Month, you get free admission to one of a handful of other South Florida museums with your ticket. Badass squared.

Just get drunk. Teds hideaway is usually a sausage fest but there's other good bars on the beach. A weekend wasted is never a wasted weekend.
