It's a holiday weekend, and actually, we mean that in more ways than one.

A lot of people will be heading to church Sunday morning. Meanwhile, a lot of people will be higher than they've been all year. It's also time to celebrate wax, a music fan's favorite dying medium.

Besides all the special celebrations, there are tons of ways to get involved in the community, enjoy some music, or brush up on your literary skills. Here's what's cool to do in town this weekend.

Ladies and gentleman, the moment we've all been waiting for. We are pleased to announce with no uncertainty the weekend has arrived.

This weekend is special, because it's all about being true to yourself. It's Miami Beach Gay Pride season, and there will be a parade, and a beach day, nightlife, a heel race - all kinds of good stuff.

Maybe you're not gay, and you don't feel like getting up early for a parade? Check out the ballet, or maybe a Heat game. See some classic motorcycles, or possibly hit SoBe for some top-notch dance music. Whatever your activity, this weekend shouldn't be hard to plan.

Yes, Chelsea Handler is in Miami.
It's the weekend, and you don't have any plans yet? Uganda Be Kidding Me. No, really, Chelsea Handler is in town performing her Uganda Be Kidding Me tour as part of the South Beach Comedy Festival, and so are Chris Hardwick and Nick Swardson.

Besides all the lols, you should venture to the streets for all the literary madness of O, Miami Poetry Festival. Or maybe hop in a boat and fish for some money. Why not go running for all the bacon in the world?

All things are possible. It's the freakin' weekend, baby.

Hey! We know you've likely been partying for days on end, but don't go to sleep just yet. It's Friday, and with it comes the final weekend of Winter Music Conference 2014. Plus, it's the official kick-off of Ultra, and that noise is going to keep you up regardless.

But if you're trying to escape the beat, there's plenty of entertainment alternatives. You can dress up like a person from thousands of years ago and drink beer with friends, or maybe hit the opera for some high-brow fun. Hell, Jay Leno is in town. Things are about to get weird.

No, it's not a dream. You've made it to another weekend.

The forecast, according to our window, is bright, blue, and brilliant. Let's soak up the sun with some fun outdoor activities. At night, there's plenty of cultural offerings this Saturday and Sunday, from plays to orchestral performance, and more. There's even some big stars coming to town - and we don't just mean Miley Cyrus.

But don't forget (how could you), WMC is kicking off right now, and we know the perfect runway to strut your stuff.

If everybody's working for the weekend, then these are the moments we live for. Thank goodness it's Friday, and with that comes another action-packed weekend of free and fancy events alike, because this city knows how to make the most of a couple days off.

While the rest of the country swarms our beaches on Spring Break, we're wrapping up an international film festival and dancing in funny costumes. A Motown legend is coming to town, and you have the chance to catch up on all the Wes Anderson films you've already seen. Plus, break out the green beer, cheer on your champions, and much more.

It's here, the moment we've all been waiting for. Friday is upon us like a golden ray of sun after a dark and stormy night. That strange feeling radiating through your bones? It's hope.

Aren't you ready to drown that hope in chicken wings, gallery wine, and chocolate? Don't you want to get out there and hit the streets for some fine art, or to meet the twink of your dreams? Maybe you just want to get loud and crazy with the rest of your local brethren in the craziest block-party the city has ever seen?

Dame mas gasoline, the best things to do this weekend are right here.

The wait is over!

In just a few hours, you get to walk out of this office and say "enough." Even if you don't work in an office, you soon can turn off your brain completely, or to whatever varying degree makes you most comfortable.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy one of these fine gatherings. If you like music, this weekend brings rock'n'roll, reggea, classical, disco, even some goth-y goodness. If you like food, there's plenty of that going around, and oftentimes right by some beautiful works of art. Learn a thing or two, support a good cause, or maybe just be entertained.
