Is it us or did this week fly by?! We just looked up and it was already Friday! But we’re not mad because we’ve been looking forward to the weekend since last weekend. Here’s what’s on deck.
Friday, July 15:
CollabMiami Creative Freelancer Meetup: One is the loneliest number and the freelance life can be proof of that. So start your weekend off by vibing with other professional freelancers. It’s a really great way to charge up your creativity, get some fresh ideas, and meet some people who are doing what you’re doing.
Food, Fashion & Fitness: It’s summer and if you’re anything like us, you might not be quite beach body ready. (I mean, have you SEEN those ice cream sandwiches from Wynwood Parlor?) So if all those swim week models have you woefully staring at your waistline, this event is all about health, fitness, fashion and fun.

Frankie Says: What’s a summer weekend in Miami without a fly pool party? We’ve got just the one for you. The Confidante, everyone’s new favorite hang, is hosting their weekly party with the homies from Klangbox and serving up cool drinks and great tunes from some fabulous local DJs.
Social Tech Live: Ok, maybe you’re not the pool party kinda person and you want to spend your weekend being a total boss, learning and innovating. No problem. We gotchu. This is a weekend-long fun, interactive conference that focuses on social media, tech, marketing, drones, and robots. Join some incredible influencers in the tech community and learn ways to grow your business.
The Neverending Story 35MM: We’ve probably seen this movie 100 times, since it was a childhood classic. We all crushed on Atreyu. We all cried when Artax died in that black swamp. And we were Bastian in his moment of triumph as he soared over his bullies astride the glorious luck dragon. Now you can see the film in 35mm as God intended.
Sunday, July 17:
Bikini Beer Garden: If you can’t beat ’em, join em. We felt a little left out of all those “exclusive” Swim Week parties, so we got our own, complete with plenty of free rosé, pop up shops, a beauty bar, and dope music. Join The New Tropic squad at the W on Sunday for the ultimate lowkey Swim Week vibes.
Counter Corner: YASSSSSS. We look forward this glamorous, glitter-glazed, raunchy shit show every month. This monthly queer event hosted by Hialeah’s finest drag duo Juleisy y Karla is EVERYTHING and showcases the best of Miami’s drag talent. This month’s theme is “It’s a pageant, bro!” You do not want to miss all this rachet.
Rock Against Hate: Just because it’s not on the nightly news anymore, doesn’t mean that there isn’t more we can do for the victims of the Pulse shooting. This is a great opportunity to rock out at your favorite local grime bar and do something for the greater good. All proceeds go to the victims of Pulse.
Wynwood: A History of Street Art: If you’re wondering how Wynwood and its gorgeous street art came to be, this is your chance to find out. Grab a cold brew at Panther Coffee and stick around for a lesson on the neighborhood and vast array of art we’ve come to love so much.
There’s plenty of sexy things to do this weekend in Miami and we’ll be out there enjoying every minute of it. As always, tag us in your photos because we love knowing what our tribe is up to.
