The 21st AIDS Walk Miami is going on April 19th. This is a great event to go to that supports Miami-Dade and Broward County. According to the CDC, Miami-Dade is ranked #1 in the country with the most HIV/AIDS infections. All money raised by The AIDS Walk benefits Care Resource, which provides medical attention to over 9,000 infected individuals.
The course is 3.1 miles and begins and ends at the Miami Beach Convention. Registration is free, but participants are encouraged to raise money. This is a very important event as it directly effects our community. So show your support!

I know absolutely nothing about basketball. OK, that is a bit of an exaggeration. I was a basketball cheerleader in high school (I know, shocking) so I picked up on some of the rules along the way. Other than those two years, however, I have never been one to follow sports. There is something though about attending a sporting event. The energy of the crowd, the food, and of course the beer. I've lived in Miami for years and have never been to a Heat game. Now that my college career is ending, I find myself with a little more time for these sorts of things. They have tickets for $5 at most of the games. Yes, these are "nose-bleeds" but if you're not that into basketball and just want to have a good time these tickets are perfect. The downside? These tickets sell-out fast. So option #2 is to buy from season ticket holders. I'm debating whether I want to do this, because you have to buy a certain amount and I only need three. I can't make these sort of decisions, so I'll need a couple of days to decide. The prices are a little higher, but definitely affordable.
