Okay Sazoneros, it"s time to start devising your Memorial Day Weekend plans right? I"ve decided to present you with a few plan "B"s" in case your plan "A"s" don"t make the cut! You may already know that this week is officially titled "Urban Beach Week 2010." If you"re interested in attending one of the many beach parties around town, check out The Miami New Times and their calendar of events. For those who are looking for something outside of Miami"s nightlife, here are some options:
For film and music lovers: swing by The DocMiami International Film Festival. This three day event (May 27-30) fuses emerging documentary filmmakers, students’ grades 6-12, as well as film and music enthusiasts. Guests can enjoy performances by Melton Mustafa, Tito Puente Jr. and Fito Espinola who are contributing their talents to benefit Brick by Brick for Tanzania, a non-profit organization. The festival will take place at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa located at 4400 N.W. 87 Avenue in Miami.
Finally, for a real taste of Miami"s sazon, you cannot miss this month"s "Viernes Culturales" in Little Havana. On Friday, May 27th, head to the infamous Calle Ocho to experience every aspect of Miami"s diverse culture. There will be food, art, dominoes and a great mix of people from all over South Florida. The event starts at 6 p.m. and runs till midnight. You"ll know you"ve arrived when you hear the music playing on S.W. 8th Street between I-95 and 27th Avenue. Enjoy your long weekend and when all else fails...just hit the beach!
