Yaasssss! It’s the weekend and it’s gonna be a long one (Our favorite kind of weekend). There will be no shortage of backyard family cookouts, fireworks shenanigans, and pool parties to attend, but those aren’t your only options. Here are some of the weekend highlights:
Friday, July 1
Peachfuzz ft. Trina: The Peachfuzz party is legendary. They play nothing but the best 90s hip-hop and R&B and this time there will be a guest performance by the “Baddest B*tch” herself. There is literally no better place to be on a Friday night.
Ten Dollar Days at Zoo Miami: Seriously, when was the last time you went to the zoo? For just ten bucks you’re in this weekend and you can indulge your childhood fascination with monkeys or take the little ones without breaking the bank.
Supercon: No shame in our game. We’re geeks and we’re damn proud of it. Whether you’re a Whovian, Trekkie, Sith Lord, or Hufflepuff, the Florida Supercon is where you go to convene with your fellow geeks. (This year William Shatner AND River Song will be there!)
Saturday, July 2
Leah Summer Series Warehouse Wrap Party: This is a shameless plug. We partnered up with our peeps from Leah Arts District to celebrate the release of our Hialeah neighborhood guide and throw an epic party. There will be DJs, live music, free drinks, and live art by the legendary 7Up crew — and it’s going to be hosted by Hialeah’s own Lisa Lopez from Power 96. Can’t imagine why you would go anywhere else.
Miami Endless Summer: Miami has one season and that’s summer. Fine by us. Celebrate by partaking in some shenanigans at every Miami rocker’s haven, Churchill’s. They’ve got a pretty sick lineup of rock talent playing until the wee hours of the morning.
Bacon & Beer Crawl: We feel like this one is pretty self-explanatory. If you like bacon (duh) and beer (obviously) then this is your jam. Besides, is there anything more American than consuming excessive amounts of pork and booze?
Sunday, July 3
BBQ & Chill: By now you should know that if it’s hosted by Prism, you should probably just go. This is no exception. Kick it at the Wynwood Yard for some live music by local blues babe Zach Deputy, a BBQ-inspired pop up, Concrete Beach brews, and, as always, good vibes.
Chocolate Sunday: Locals know that the real turn up is at dirty Purdy on Sunday night, where you can expect the girls to be gorgeous, the drinks to flow, the music to be lit, and the dance floor to be full. Dance it out before Monday strikes.
Uncle Sam’s Summer Jam: What is a 4th of July weekend in Miami without at least one epic pool party?If you’re going to do it, do it right. We highly recommend checking out The Confidante (formerly the Thompson) for a sexy day of Slip N Slide, heated pools, cotton candy, boozy snow cones, DJs on deck, cabanas and bungalows, and more. Parties like this are why there are so many songs about Miami.
Coyo Taco Presents: IAMNOBODI (Soulection): The Soulection crew is back to wrap up your Sunday night the only way they know how — with beats on beats on beats. Slide into Coyo’s little hidden cocktail bar and get hype with the Coyo fam.
Monday, July 4th
Quintron & Miss Pussycat Celebrate America: Come out to Gramps in Wynwood and see this oddball pair from New Orleans put on a hell of a show with puppets, instruments, and everything in between. Plus, Gramps will be unveiling their new pizza concept and pizza is a good enough reason to do anything.
July 4th BBQ Day Party with 103.5 The Beat: Your favorite radio station is coming to Brickhouse in Wynwood and serving up those sweet, sweet radio jams and keeping the party moving. Not a bad way to get boozy before the fireworks start.
Day La Soul: All old school hip, all night on the rooftop at E11even. There’s no doubt going to be some debauchery involved. Today is all about celebrating our freedoms, right?
You’ve got a busy weekend ahead of you, one that you can look back on on your Snapchat and be proud of. Happy 4th of July, Miami.
