Published On 02/25/2015 Published On 02/25/2015

One of the things you forget when you live in Miami -- in addition to all these things, obviously -- is that instead of starting in, like, September, spring doesn't actually start until March. Especially since while it's still winter in the rest of the country, we're hitting outdoor beer fests, wearing almost nothing to Ultra, and everything else on our list of 13 things you must do in Miami this March...

Cadillac Championship at Doral In Miami there’re more to golf championships than just golf, so fore-go the country club food in favor of eats and drinks by Burger & Beer Joint, BCTacos, HipPOPs, and the Grey Goose 19th Hole Lounge. At night, hit up Cadillac Miami Nights where you can party like Tiger. Well, not exactly like him, hopefully.
