Somehow in our collective anticipation of a year that wasn’t 2020, we skipped over the fact that National Tequila Day fell on a Saturday. Not sure how that happened. Irregardless (it’s a word now!), Miami will be celebrating with free shots and two-for-one deals from Kendall to Ft. Lauderdale. Trying not to spend your weekend in an agave-fueled haze? We’ve got glow in the dark yoga, swimsuit models at the Hard Rock, and a full moon party to keep you busy. All that and a #FreeBritney brunch highlights the best stuff going on in South Florida this weekend.

Welcome the full moon at the Ritz

Friday, July 23
DiLido Beach Club
If the idea of a full moon party sounds intriguing—but sitting around a drum circle on a beach with shirtless strangers does not—head to the Ritz Carlton South Beach, where their swanky beach club is throwing a fantastic shindig. The night kicks off at 6 pm with a guided meditation and sound healing, then continues with a night of “tribal beats,” special full moon-themed cocktails, fire dancers, and more.
Cost: No cover; menu prices vary

Dance to Dennis Ferrer in the round

Friday, July 23
Le Rouge
House Music Hall of Famer Dennis Ferrer takes literal center stage at Le Rouge, spinning a sexy set from 9 pm to 3 am this Friday. If you haven’t checked this place out yet, it’s an interesting concept where the DJ performs in the middle of the room while revelers dance around them. Party on.
Cost: Tickets start at $25 per person

Do glow in the dark yoga with the kiddos

Friday, July 23
Wynwood Walls
Glow in the dark yoga—or “glowga” as the kids are calling it—hits the Wynwood Walls from 6 to 7:30 pm this Friday. You and your offspring aged seven to 15 will be showered with bracelets and other illuminated accessories before Sprout Yoga + Mindfulness leads a class under, what else, a blacklight.
Cost: Admission runs $18 per child (includes one adult guardian)

Beautify yourself while surrounded by SI swimsuit models

Friday, July 23 - Saturday, July 24
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
Sports Illustrated will be ringing in its 2021 swimsuit issue all weekend from 10 am to 4 pm at Hard Rock. Expect cleansing CBD facials from Mind Naturals, non-chemical eyelash extensions from All for Love, and clean cosmeceutical skin treatments from Babour. SI’s  roster of models will also be on hand, including cover girl Megan Thee Stallion, Jasmine Sanders, and Kate Bock.
Cost: No cover

Crush beers before the ballgame

Saturday, July 23
Loan Depot Park
Tired of paying $10 for watered down beer at the ballpark? Hit the Marlins’ monthly beerfest two hours before the 7:10 pm matchup against the San Diego Padres. Attendees get a five-ounce commemorative cup plus access to samples from dozens of brews spanning local, import, and micro breweries. Keeping that buzz going through the game, though, might prove costly.
Cost: Tickets start at $35 per person

Bid on art to support the Cuban people

Saturday, July 24
Museum of Graffiti
An all-star team of Miami street artists has joined the San Isidro Movement for a night of performances and silent auctions to benefit the Movement’s goal of a free Cuba. Vie for dazzling works from dozens of local makers before enjoying sets from DJ Redemption Youth, Apex305, and more.
Cost: Tickets run $15 per person  

Slam free tequila shots and 2-for-1 margs

Saturday, July 24
Cantina Catrina
Kendallites rejoice—you won’t have to deal with expensive Uber rides to make the most of National Tequila Day. Cantina Catrina is pouring free welcome shots of Herradura from 2 to 4 pm, followed by 2-for-1 tequila shots and margaritas from 4 to 6 pm. You should be vibing hard—or possibly ready to croak—by the time the live DJ comes on at 6:30 pm.
Cost: No cover; menu prices vary

Score a free Corona every time you take a shot

Saturday, July 24
The Wharf Miami and Ft. Lauderdale
We knew it was only a matter of time before The Wharf’s bad decision specials started back up again. They’re doing it in glorious fashion for National Tequila Day, when everyone who orders a Casa Noble tequila shot will be rewarded for their wisdom with a free Corona, all freaking day. No way this could possibly end badly…

Learn how to make flower crowns

Sunday, July 25
Lincoln Eatery
Is your Instagram feed totally on point except for a glaring lack of flower crowns? Nip that fatal flaw in the bud at this special Sunday workshop presented by Zoom Bloomz. In addition to learning the ins and outs of flower crown making, you’ll also get all-you-can-drink rosé (the wine, not the bloom) throughout the event.
Cost: Tickets run $60 per person

Brunch to #FreeBritney

Sunday, July 25
TimeOut Market
Well, it seems we won’t be getting any new Britney music until she’s officially freed from her conservatorship shackling, so the best we can do is drink sparkling wine in her honor. TimeOut Market hosts its first ever #FreeBritney brunch from noon to 3 pm this sunday, with DJ Discofuturo spinning all of Britney’s best alongside unlimited bubbles for $22.
Cost: No cover; menu prices vary
