Things to do in Miami this weekend
The Arsht Center’s award-winning resident company, Zoetic Stage, reimagines Stephen Sondheim’s bloody and beautiful 1979 masterpiece, about a demon barber who arrives on London’s derelict Fleet Street, meets a baker with a cannibalistic idea for a new dessert, and plans his revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life.
Paint the town green for two entire days at this downtown waterfront gem, featuring Miami foodie staples such as Garcia’s Seafood and MOJO Donuts plus musical offerings from Kid Nemesis.
One of the NBA’s most well-dressed players, Dwyane Wade hosts the sixth annual RunWade fashion fundraiser at Aventura Mall. Head to the shopping complex’s third floor for a runway presentation that features looks by Bloomingdale’s, 120% Lino and Designer Eyes, among others, plus cocktails and food from the likes of Shake Shack, Tap 42 Craft Kitchen and Bar and Rosetta Bakery. Proceeds benefit the Wade Family Foundation at The Player’s Philanthropy Fund, plus a portion of sales go toward the Overtown Youth Center.
Would it still be Coconut Grove without another arts festival? This time, the neighborhood hosts the 14th annual Mad Hatter, a wacky spectacle that’s part street fair and part marketplace. Stroll Main Highway’s array of vintage items and shoppable accessories and stop in at the Barnacle for a hat contest, performances and activities for the kids. The outdoor festival happens on both Saturday and Sunday.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at this giant Wynwood festival that’ll have plenty of booze (including green beer!), music, food trucks and St. Patty’s appropriate decor, like the giant “pot of gold” that’ll be on site, which guests can jump right into and snap a pic with. It’s a free event and your RSVP gets you a complimentary beer and shot when you walk in the door.
Come for the delicious bread, stay for the badass competition. Miami’s finest bakers will come together to be judged by a panel of professional chefs, and you’re invited to watch the drama unfold while enjoying the fruits of their labor. In addition to the glorious, crusty loaves of bread, sample a selection of jams, charcuterie and cheeses, and wash it all down with a complimentary glass of wine.
Miami plays host to the only annual Flamenco festival outside of New York City featuring dancers directly from Spain. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of her renowned dance company, Sara Baras is the star of the event, having performed more than 4,000 times around the world and even lending her likeness for the creation of Spain Barbie. For Miami, she brings a new show, Sombras, with 15 dancers, musicians and singers on stage.
