Things to do in Miami this weekend
On January 19, 1977, the unthinkable happened: it snowed in Miami. To commemorate that freezing day in the 305, Kush Hospitality is throwing Miami’s very first snow parade. Everyone is encouraged to bring in their warmest snow attire (which you can then donate) and meet at the milkshake bar Vicky’s House at 6pm. There, you’ll be handed a free hot chocolate and a free Stone Xocoveza Imperial Stout if you want something a tad stronger. Then, the parade shall march a quarter mile to the Spillover.
This boutique film festival takes over various venues throughout Miami (the Light Box, WallCast at New World Symphony and PAMM) for four days of workshops, panel discussions and film screenings. This year focuses on filmmakers and films that highlight women and people of color.
Basement’s new monthly party is all about the ladies. This month’s instillation sees an all-female rotation of DJs: DJ PeeWee, Jessica Who and Nala are doing the damn thing. Plus, ladies get complimentary frosé slushies from 9pm to 11pm because y’all freaking deserve it.
Coconut Grove launches a new block party this weekend. Permanent Vacation (that’s what they’re calling this shindig) sees Main Highway shut down for a free outdoor concert featuring local favorite Locos Por Juana. Come hungry too, because some very tasty Coconut Grove restaurants like GreenStreet Cafe, Spillover and more are providing bites. 3439 Main Highway, Coconut Grove.
The self-proclaimed world’s largest paint party comes back to Miami. The lineup has not been announced yet but it’s safe to expect the usual EDM superstars and rappers. Past years saw Zedd, 21 Savage, Lil Pump and more soak masses of young Miamians in swimming pools worth of shiny neon paint. Your poor showers.
Miami brunch fanatics, welcome the newest addition to the 305 brunch family: Boulud Sud. The delicious Downtown restaurant introduces its new Sunday brunch and it sounds pretty amazing: French scrambled eggs, ricotta pancakes, cocktails that go way beyond your average mimosa and a ton more. Come very, very hungry.
Love art deco? Who doesn’t? The architecture and design style that’s made Miami famous around the world gets its very own celebration during Art Deco Weekend. Commemorate the city’s beautiful facades with over 80 events including live music, lectures, walking tours, a fashion show and art exhibitions. At Ocean Dr between Fifth and 15th Sts.
