The Bookstore Grand Re-Opening

Locals couldn’t be more excited about the return of the famous Coconut Grove bookstore (which, as we told you, was supposed to shutter permanently last month). Celebrate its comeback—and abbreviated moniker—with a grand celebration, featuring complimentary beer from Concrete Beach Brewing and Bousa Brewing, free wine and food samples from the restaurant’s new menu.

Sat 15

Backyard Beach Bash

What's there to do after spending the day on the beach? Head to the Surfcomber's summer concert series and tiki party for tropical cocktails, barbecue bites, pop-up shops filled with artisanal wares and live music right on the sand. This weekend, shake it to the sounds of Latin Grammy-nominated band Palo!.

Overtown Music & Arts Festival

The annual Overtown Music and Arts Festival, produced by Headliner Market Group, is back. Set to take the stage are Grammy-winning, former Voice coach CeeLo Green, R&B veteran and “Last Night” vocalist Keyshia Cole, reggae icons Inner Circle, Latin sensation Tito Puente Jr., R&B duo Ruff Endz and the group Next. The daylong event will feature food dished out by dozens of local vendors, plus a barbecue competition that promises to be delicious. NW 10th St between NW Third Ave and NW Second Ct. Sat 15 11am–7pm.

Sun 16

The Miami Flea: Midsummer Day Dream Edition

It's hot as Hades outside but don't let the weather keep you from checking out this month's flea. NBC 6's Kelly Blanco hosts the July installment, featuring performances by JUKE, Yoli Mayor and Nicole Chirino. Expect your favorite retail vendors and food trucks to show up, too. A+E District, 1445 North Miami Ave. Sun 16 4–8pm.

Deering Discovery Day

Enjoy a full day of activities and programming fit for the entire family. Participate in canoe tours, meet the artists in residence at the Carriage House and Power House and interact with amazing wildlife from Zoo Miami. Fruit & Spice Park provides a delicious fruit display. Admission is just $1.

Drag Brunch

On Sundays, hybrid art gallery and restaurant, R House Wynwood, throws an epic brunch party featuring drag performances, unlimited food and bottomless drinks. The divas in residence hail from all over the world, so prepare for Brazilian bombshells and Cuban beauties more sizzling than your side of bacon.
