Just Your Average Weekend

The splendid weekend is here at last. The weather has finally returned to normal and there is some sort of “holiday” going on. There is plenty going on this weekend, both day and night. First, the annual Coconut Grove Art Festival starts on Saturday. The festival will continue to Monday from 9:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is the perfect way to enjoy the warm weather. The festival offers live entertainment, artwork, and of course food. Walking through The Grove, one will see everything from photography to sculptures. And for $7 a day, this event is a great way to start celebrating that holiday.

Another event going on is Romance in a Can Festival. No, you will not catch me dead at an event like this, especially this weekend, but I felt obligated to mention it as an unbiased blogger. Most of the movies are European and from Latin America with viewings offered in different areas of Miami. What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than watching romance films with your sweetheart.

Now, for those of you that are fortunate enough to have your freedom, there is plenty for you to do this weekend. Fridays at Heathrow Lounge is always a great place to go. Minimal hassle at the door, no cover for ladies, and a wide range of music guarantees an exciting night. Santos (where I’ll be celebrating a friend’s birthday) is also a great spot. Although the dance floor isn’t what I would call spacious, there is a lot more room by the bar. There are tables set up where you can actually hangout with your friends without everyone knocking you around. As for Saturday, the day where all your friends in a relationship will simply vanish, there are a few options. You could have a regular night out with the girls (or guys), but my personal recommendation is to stay home. Remember when you were little and Valentine’s Day was something you shared with your parents? Well, when you’re an adult and single, you spend it with your friends. Stay home, rent movies, pop open some bottles of wine and just have a relaxing night with your closest friends.
