The Wharf
Did you know Friday is National Cheese Fries Day? Yeah neither did anyone else, but if your Friday night activities give you an inexplicable craving for French fries covered in cheese, RSVP to The Wharf, and you’ll get a free order when you show up in celebration. Drinks, of course, will still cost you.
Cost: Free

The Anderson
In another tribute to “shit you only think of high,” the modular music-making system BLOCKS has remastered the martial arts classic Live from the 36th Chamber of Shaolin frame by frame, and Wu-Tang’s RZA was able to compose his own score for it using their system. It’ll sound brilliant on 4/20, we promise.
Cost: $35
Friday

Las Olas Boulevard
You may later think it a bad decision, but around 7:30pm when the Las Olas Wine and Food Festival starts, crushing five blocks of food from Angelo Elia’s, Burlock Coast, and other Broward favorites with unlimited drinks from Woodford Reserve and William Hill Winery is gonna sound just about perfect.
Cost: $158.65

Miami Design District Palm Court
If you think a pot holiday is a stupid idea and think listening to “Just Another Day,” and “Puedes Llegar” performed live is the real way to spend a Friday night, this weekend’s not a complete loss. Jon Secada performs free at the Palm Court at 6pm.
Cost: Free
Friday - Sunday
Apr 20-22
Various locations around Wynwood
Art, food, fashion, terrible parking, and all the other things people love about Wynwood will be on full display all weekend at the Wynwood Life festival. There’ll be over 20 bands on the live music stage, a pop-up gallery on 22nd Terrace with unheralded local artists, a kitchen lab, a Bloomie’s Style Lounge, and Wynwood Cannons -- an exhibit of cannons decorated by top local artists.
Cost: Free, and you'll get a free drink when you RSVP here
Friday - Sunday
Apr 20-22
Watsco Center
The music of famed Argentine rock legends Soda Stereo lays the soundtrack for Sep7imo Dia -- No Descansare, a Cirque du Soleil arena show full of the spectacular scenery, death-defying stunts, and colorful characters you’ve come to expect. Shows are at 6pm and 9:30pm Friday and Saturday, and 1:30pm and 5pm Sunday.
Cost: Tickets start at $55

Cost: $15 one day, $25 all weekend

Xtreme Action Park
Who needs playoff hockey when you have grown women from around South Florida roller skating through a rink and cracking each other into the boards? Roller Derby comes to the Xtreme Action Park at 6:30pm when the Not-So-Sweet Meanatees and the Hard-Hitting Jammerheads square off.
Cost: Adults $10; children $5
Saturday
Apr 21
You ever wonder why Tommy Lee looks so sweaty when he performs? It’s because drumming is hard work, which you’ll learn during a free POUND class at the WET deck on the W’s 50th floor. The workout combines cardio, yoga, pilates, and drumming, and there’ll be freshly pressed juices after. Bring your own yoga mat.
