Free pork, free comedy, and lots to eat on 4/20 (plus Vanilla Ice!)

Vanilla Ice

Thursday Seth Meyers is prepared to give you a pre-weekend update on funny starting at 8p at the Fillmore, to open this weekend's South Beach Comedy Festival. We've got two tickets to give away -- to enter, tweet us why you want to go, and you might be laughing at something other than Big Bang Theory on Thursday
Saturday Grab your floaty wings, beers, and whatever else you might use to relax in the ocean and head to South Beach for Floatopia, at which the whole city gathers to lay around on giant inflatable toys and splash water at each other. The fun gets started at 10a,
so check out who you might get to see in a swimsuit on Facebook

Giorgio Rapicavoli of Top Chef and Eating House fame will be doing live cooking demos and tastings at Miami Eats: The Art and Science of Food at the Miami Science Museum from 10a to 5p. You can also make your own liquid nitrogen ice cream, and take a DIY hydroponics class. So you can learn to grow your own, ya know, basil. See what else is in store
Blowfly -- the guy who taught Luke how to be nasty and Snoop how to smoke -- performs at 420 Fest at Tobacco Road on Saturday. Admission is $5 after 9p and
all the fun gets underway at 6p

Food Truck Invasion lands at the Magic City Casino at 5p for the largest food truck event in the history of food trucks events. 65 'mobiles will run a two-mile caravan into the parking lot starting at 430p. And, once you’re full, there’s a dog track right there

Eating House is throwing a 4/20-themed dinner with munchies-style food like short rib bagel bites, cold lo mein and a brownie sundae for “$42.0”/person. There’ll be stoner flicks and a guy playing covers of Grateful Dead, Sublime, Snoop Dogg, and Cypress Hill. Get off the couch and make a reservation!
Sunday Chefs from Yardbird, The Federal, and other joints will duke it out for the title of “Prince of Pork” at
Cochon 555 Miami Sunday at 4p at the Four Seasons. Each chef will make a menu from heritage breed pigs, pair it with wine, and let the judges decide. Tweet us your favorite thing to do with pork, along with @cochon555 and #cochonmiami, for a shot at a pair of free tickets
Wednesday Vanilla Ice of Vanilla Ice fame will be performing at Blue Martini on Brickell sometime after 11p. It’s “Ladies Night Out”, but you can still go. It’s a long way from A1A, Beachfront Avenue! See where exactly.
Upcoming The zombie-infested 5k Run for Your Life invades Amelia Earhart Park April 27th. Spend the race fleeing zombies, or being a zombie and trying to infect everyone. The race is next week, but registration closes Monday.
