Tropical Storm Isaac: Hurricane Parties, Restaurant and Event Updates, Closings UPDATED
Before you head out to a store, restaurant, or bar we suggest calling them ahead of time to make sure they're open.
Some events (especially outdoor ones) like food truck roundups and even Zoo Miami are closed today.
Some restaurants and bars vow to stay open, acting as a port in a storm.
