You'll love this weekend.
Happy Valentine's Day. This holiday, which initially honored religious martyrs, is now a celebration of love, so whether you're planning a romantic dinner for two, having drinks with friends, baking a heart-shaped pizza for your kids, or just planning to cuddle your pup -- we wish you a sweet day.

Let's not forget that this is also President's Day Weekend, which means the 51st annual Coconut Grove Arts Festival and Miami International Boat Show are in town.

Much to do. Let's get started, shall we?
