Art Basel Miami Beach is in two weeks. So what the hell do we do with ourselves until then? Fortunately, the city's got us covered the next three days.

Not only does the Miami Book Fair International kick off its massive street fair this weekend, but a few venues are diving into their Basel festivities early.

Art, culture, fun, with a promise of cocktails tying it all together -- just another fabulous Miami weekend.

There's a (slight) chill in the air. You've even shut off your A/C a couple of times. This, folks, is "fall" in Miami. There may not be fiery hearths and layers, but we can get cozy with the best of 'em. Though you may want to stay in with that blanket and new book, this weekend kicks off the Miami Book Fair International, the yearly mega fest that brings fun and impressive literati for tons of big events.

You can celebrate your bookish side beginning Sunday, and until then, there's plenty of places to get your cultural fix.

We've got the cure for those post-election blues. Well, not really. What's going to take your mind off the prospect of four more years of Rick Scott? Not much, but we're gonna give it our best shot.

This weekend brings another second Saturday art walk, the last before the Art Basel madness really descends on our city, plus all the music, culture, and techie fun you can fit into three days. The only downside? No legal weed to float you through the fun. Chin up, though, we might get our wish in 2016. Until then: Party on, Miami.

That special time of year is finally upon us; the time of year when Miami's freaks and creeps and elites mingle as one, boozing together in costumed, candy-high bliss. Yes, today is Halloween, and we are pumped to bring you the best Miami gatherings, be they scary, sexy, or just filled to the teeth with goodies.

So zombie-walk your bad self around town for a stellar collection of parties, parades, and enough gratuitous nudity to last you through next October 31st.

Happy haunting.

Time to smash and grab.
The holidays are nearing but still not close enough, hunks of time off a distant gleam on the horizon. For now, we've got the weekends to drool over. You've slugged through rain and traffic, dammit, and you deserve a good time -- or several good times, as our guide provides.

We've got bands. We've got booze. And we've got all the pre-Halloween messiness your heart can handle before the big day next week.

Ready your steins.
You made it. Sure, you may still be working through the ear-buzzing hangover aftermath of III Points, but you made it through nonetheless. And if you were one of those poor souls trapped on the airport tram this week, with stifling heat and a baby Jesus doll, you deserve the sweet taste of freedom and booze more than anybody.

The point is, life can be unstable -- as unstable as the weak-ass Venetian Causeway that'll close down and make everybody miserable next spring. But through the trials and traffic, you can always count on Miami for one thing: weekends full of music, parties, culture, and much-needed cocktails.

We know, it's Friday, and all you can think about is your couch, a beer, and banning alarm clocks for life -- or is that just us?

Party animal or no, locals better leave R&R for another day, cause this weekend's gonna be non-stop awesome. In fact, Wynwood may very well implode from the influx of art, music, and techie fair.

You don't want to miss this madness, Miami.

Take a deep breath. Not only is the work week almost done, but that inhale wasn't one big gulp of gross humidity. Summer is officially gone in Miami, and that means a lot less heat, a little less rain, and actually enjoying the journey to all the fun stuff there is to do.

Concerts, beer, and pumpkins await. It may not be a typical autumn weekend here, but by God it's gonna be a great one.

The men of Hurly Burly Burlesque make their Miami debut at Gramps.
Even through the relative standstill of sticky summer, Miami keeps getting more fun. Sure, our pervasive public transit problems and economic woes haven't been tackled head-on, but Brickell's getting a dine-in cinema! Wynwood's getting a greenhouse-inspired park! Don't harsh the mellow, cynics. Take the recreational wins.

While these exciting additions to Miami are a long way off, there's a weekend full of entertainment right around the corner. Let the beer, manly burlesque, and concerts guide your way.

Say what you will about the Magic City, there is never a lack of stuff to do on the weekends -- OK, things do tend to slow a bit through the sluggish summer heat. But next time you're whining about how bored you are, just think of those poor mid-Westerners, nothing but the plains to stare at until fall hits and they jump on hay rides or whatever they do out there.

Lucky for us, Miami's just getting warmed up (not literally, thank Christ; the heat is finally starting to break). The next three days are packed with cultural fun and festivals galore, so grab that stale Red Bull, some empanadas, and hit the ground running.
