Retro goodies from Acme.
Whether you have a jam-packed weekend full of errands or you're sitting like a bump on a log and looking for something to do, Miami's got your back.

Do yourself a favor: Put down that to-do list. Stop twiddling your thumbs. You don't live in this city for nothing.

The 305 has five incredible food-centric happenings this weekend, and all you need to do to get the ball rolling is check them out.

Heart of a Chef
On Sunday, suit up for a lovefest. Well, sort of. Heart of a Chef will pit two local toques in a culinary battle to raise funds for the Florida Heart Research Institute. Each chef will create a heart-healthy meal using mystery ingredients. The kid-friendly event takes place April 28 from 3 to 7 p.m. and includes interactive displays, food and wine samplings, and a cooking demonstration by vegan chef and author Ellen Kanner. The competition will begin at 5:30 p.m. Tickets cost $30 presale or $40 at the door. Each paid adult ticket includes admission for two children.

Acme Going-Away Brunch Bash
This week we were saddened by the news that one of Miami's quaintest bakeries is closing. After just nine months in the business, Acme issued a statement via social media outlets such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, saying that the $10,000-a-month rent was too difficult to meet by selling bread. The going-away bash (April 27 and 28 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) will offer blackboard specials and favorites and 50 percent off all their breads, plus additional giveaways. BYOB and tip your hats to the place. We're sad to see the charming shop go, but with heads like the ones behind The Federal, it won't be long before we see them open another set-up.
