Wondering where to go and what to do in Miami this weekend? Stop pondering and start reading, because we’ve rounded up the best to-dos to do around town.
FRIDAY, August 16
A Legendary Sale
The best five words you’ll hear this weekend: Up to 80 percent off. Yes, the Fontainebleau’s legendary annual sale is upon us, and along with it comes massively discounted designer wares.
Think Valentino, Pucci, Giuseppe Zanotti and so much more from a roundup of the hotel’s boutiques. The sale, which kicks off Friday, lasts all weekend from 10am to 6pm each day in the Fontaine Ballroom, located off the Chateau Lobby.
Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 4441 Collins Ave, Miami Beach
Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of ...
What better place to celebrate the day of rum than at a bar aptly named RumBar? And what better way to celebrate than with $5 rum punch from 3pm until late?
Head to The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami, where there will also be Rum y Cafecito cocktails, half-off cigars, a cigar roller, dominos and live music from 7pm until close to make the most of the holiday.

That’s the Spot—and the Stop
Sitting in traffic is stressful. Gliding down the tracks of the Brightline isn’t. Also stress relieving: a massage. So it only makes sense the Brightline would offer free massages on its Friday 5:30pm train from West Palm Beach to Miami and its 540pm train from Miami Beach to West Palm.
Massages will be supplied by Priv, while Brightline serves up cocktails and a passenger-pleasing rides home or elsewhere to get your weekend rolling. Tickets start at $27.
SATURDAY August 17
Raising the Bar
Calling all sweet teeth: Milk Bar’s All You Can Treat Tour is popping up in Miami Beach this weekend. Specifically from noon to 5pm Saturday and Sunday right in front of Joe’s Stone Crab. All of which means you can finally satiate your cravings for Milk Bar pie, birthday cake, cake truffles and a little something called apple pie cake.
Be on the lookout for a 1969 postal truck with the scent of heavenly sweets wafting from within.
From Dawn to Dusk
Daybreaker, the early morning party, is flipping the switch this weekend and turning its crack-of-dawn dance party into a sunset soiree.
Kicking off at 6:30pm this time around at the Alfred L. DuPont Building downtown, you can expect hip-hop yoga, FlyBarre or a Bank Vault Sound Odyssey with a former monk.
Stick around after class for free kombucha and a party with Dude Skywalker helming the turntables from 8 to 10pm. It’s $30 for a class or $25 to party after.
