Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli goes grill to grill with Aaron Brooks and Todd Erickson this Tuesday.
The summer slump is upon us. It's hot, it's wet -- but without any of the fun that usually goes along with those two terms.

If you're without an escape to a more hospitable climate, we can commiserate. The Jersey Shore sounds pretty appealing right about now, GTL and all.

Well, we've gotta make the best of things, so here are a few ways to save your pennies this week (hopefully to fund a late summer vacation somewhere north of here). Enjoy.

  • Dead by Night reading at the Actors' Playhouse: Immerse yourself in dualities, narcissism, and misguided moralism, all in the name of entertainment. This crime-noir play is a semi-fictionalized account of writer Patricia Highsmith's life.

  • Yoga at Bayfront Park: Join your fellow Miamians in some much-needed zen-cercise (and a dose of fresh air unblemished by AC).

  • Lourdes Valentin Duo at the Betsy Hotel: While close in name to that other L-word dominating the airwaves, this Lourdes is a more sophisticated songstress. Expect everything from jazz blues to swing to modern day pop. Royals, schmoyals.
