In the immortal words of Loverboy, "Everybody's working for the weekend. Everybody wants a new romance." And, yes, everybody does -- indeed -- need a second chance. This weekend, Miami fulfills Loverboy's always-relevant weekend needs: a chocolate festival for romance, the poetry of T.I., and laughs from nationally recognized comedians. Even sci-fi geeks can get in on the action.

Happy weekend, Miami. You've earned it.

"What is a weekend?" Maggie Smith's badass Dowager Countess once famously quipped on Downton Abbey. Well, we have an answer, and it doesn't involve sitting around the house and watching the latest season of the dreary British melodrama. No -- go out and enjoy the Miami sun and this perfect (yet undoubtedly fleeting) patch of perfect weather.

There are plenty of events to facilitate that: art in the gardens, national parks, and the sweet sounds of jazz. Enjoy the weekend -- you know what it is and you've earned it. Happy weekend, Miami.

The weekend is here and if you've recovered from New Year's Eve partying, then there are some good times to be had. This weekend brings theater, al fresco dining, and basketball. It also kicks off both Jewish History Month and National YoungArts Week. If "being more engaged with the arts" was on your list of resolutions, then this is a good weekend to start.

Happy weekend.

There's a lot to choose from this weekend, particularly if you're into over-the-top concerts or boats.

Happy weekend, Miami.

Art is cool.
Sick of art fairs? No? Good. This weekend is your last chance to peruse Basel, be seen at Scope, and be baffled at Context before they all pack up and leave for the season.

We've got plenty of opportunities for you to live out your Warhol Factory fantasy. If that's not your thing -- if you hate art, celebrities, and traffic -- we have a few things for you, too.

Become a Mermaid at Locust Projects' Maritime-Themed Living Photo Booth

Lulled into maritime perdition.
Since opening its doors in 1998, Locust Projects has enjoyed a sustainability and growth that might've not been within the parameters of reality first envisioned by artist founders COOPER, Elizabeth Withstandley, and Westen Charles. Given the Detroit-level government abandonment of the Wynwood neighborhood at the time, it's a hard sale to believe that the space would've lasted and thrived for this long.

A decade and a half later, Locust is now a recognized force in the clogged artistic landscape of the area. Aside from enjoying a healthy relationship with local and international artists, part of the Locust raison d'ĂȘtre is the continued accessibility it presents to the artistic community.

One of the best ways of maintaining relevance in Miami's perpetually ebbing art scene is being able to engage the community it directly affects, so to call a regular event One Night Stands is more of a tongue-in-cheek barb in which Locust proves that though they are elders in the South Florida art game, they are still, refreshingly so, 16 year old teenagers who have every right to voice an opinion.

Jungle Island Debuts Water Park With Obstacles, Diving Cliffs, and Trampolines

It takes about five seconds of exposure to the current weather conditions before your body breaks out into a muggy sweat. We live in an urban jungle, and this pack of fashionably wild animals needs a watering hole.

Welcome summer with Jungle Island this Saturday, when the attraction happily announces the opening of its new aqua park. Gather the kids and hit the new beach (a whole beach!) when the heat is at its worst; then stay for the colorful summer experience African Nights, featuring dazzling performances by Cirque Zuma Zuma.

It's all part of Jungle Island's commitment to park redevelopment, and because the attraction really love its locals, it's sweetening the deal with some of the lowest prices ever.
