Everything You Can Do in Miami This Weekend

Virtual happy hours and museum tours.

Remember back when you used to complain that you had to spend an entire day with your family for Easter or Passover? Boy, those were the days. And while this will definitely be the weirdest holiday weekend of our lives, it can still be fun thanks to video calling and Easter dinners from some of Miami’s best restaurants. Or live DJ sets from El Patio. And yoga. All that highlights the best stuff to do while you’re still inside this first quarantined weekend of April.

Get Eating House brunch, minus the line

Friday, April 10 - Sunday, April 12
Admit it: You never really enjoyed waiting in line outside Eating House for Sunday brunch. Thanks to some, ahem, shifting situations, you can get Cap’n Crunch pancakes, the carbonara breakfast sandwich, and even Tang mimosas delivered to your door from 11:30am-9:30pm every day since brunch can pretty much be whenever now.
Cost: Prices vary

Work out at a virtual brewery

Saturday, April 11 - Sunday, April 12
Veza Sur invites you to burn off some of their deliciously deliverable calories this weekend with a couple of workouts streamed on its Instagram live. Saturday at 10am, Alvin Davie of Tapout Fitness will host a HIIT boxing workout, and Sunday at 10am you can do a yoga flow class with Sol Yoga’s Julianne Aerhee.
Cost: Free

Tour a local museum

Friday, April 10 - Sunday, April 12
Take this opportunity to support our local arts institutions, as the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Frost Science Museum, The Museum of Discovery and Science, and even Ft.  Lauderdale’s historic Bonnet House have all launched virtual tours which are both free to the public, and free of screaming school groups.
Cost: Free

Mix drinks with Julio Cabrera

Friday, April 10 - Sunday, April 12
If you’ve marveled at the creativity at Julio Cabrera’s drink making, you’ll get an inside look at his process at 6pm daily when he hosts My Happy Hour live from his home bar. It’ll stream on both Cabrera’s and Café La Trova’s Instagram, where the cocktail icon will demonstrate how to make a different drink each day.
Cost: Free

Have a virtual wine or whiskey tasting 

Friday, April 10 - Sunday, April 12
Perhaps you can use this extra time at home to become the wine and spirits expert you always pretended to be. Wine behemoth Kendall Jackson has created a series of virtual wine tasting videos on its Facebook and Instagram platforms, and will give you 20% wines to taste when you use promo code KJSPRING. If you prefer the hard stuff, Buffalo Trace Distillery, maker of Wheatley Vodka, will take you on a virtual distillery tour, where you can start the tasting portion of the tour long before sitting through the whole thing.
Cost: Both are free, wine and whiskey extra

Help out local service industry workers

Friday, April 10 - Sunday, April 12
Miami would be nothing without our colorful collection of bartenders, servers, chefs, and other people who fuel our bar and restaurant scene. They’ll be among the hardest hit, but you can help them out by donating your time, money or other things to a number of organizations. Culture Crusaders are running an assistance-matching program, where they’ll pair you up with someone in need. The U.S. Bartenders Guild has an emergency assistance program that accepts donations. As does the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation. You can even help AND get dinner out of it when you order from Grails or Spanglish, who’ll donate a meal to a first responder or hospitality industry worker for every meal purchased.
Cost: Whatever your heart can afford

Order beer, wine, or cocktails from Miami’s best bars

Friday, April 10 - Sunday, April 12
Just because you can’t physically go inside and sit down doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some of Miami’s best bars. Whether it’s take-home cocktail kits, pre-mixed drinks delivered to your door, growlers to go, or wine by the bottle, plenty of places around town will help you experience your favorite drinks while keeping your social distance. Just make sure to wait until you’ve gotten home to start drinking.
Cost: Varies

Get a workout in from Miami’s best gyms

Friday, April 10 - Sunday, April 12
Sure, you might feel a little silly staying inside to exercise when we’re in the midst of our best weather of the year. But if it’s raining, or you just hate running, you can stream everything from yoga to boxing right from the comfort of your smartphone. Check out this list of the best streaming workouts local gyms are doing right now, and make sure you still have a beach body once the beaches are back open.
Cost: Varies

Try Miami’s best restaurants without leaving your house

Friday, April 10 - Sunday, April 12
Sure, you could take this opportunity to learn how to do more than put a Lean Cuisine in the microwave. But if you’re still not so keen on learning to cook, Miami’s vibrant restaurant scene isn’t completely shut down. Dozens of local restaurants are offering touchless curbside pick-up, delivery, and take-out. If you feel a little overwhelmed by that abundance of choices, here’s a dozen great dishes to try.
Cost: Varies

Do yoga with the Underline

Saturday, April 11
Among the many things to look forward to once we can get out and enjoy Miami again is the forthcoming Underline park, a stretch of urban greenspace under the Metrorail from Brickell to Dadeland. Its organizers will be hosting a free virtual yoga class Saturday at 10am to get you psyched for the new park.
Cost: Free

Bring El Patio to su patio

Saturday, April 11
The Wynwood Business Improvement District launched its Wynwood at Home program this week, where you can get live-streamed music sets, cooking classes, and other offerings from your favorite Wywnood establishments via its Instagram and Facebook pages. On Saturday, El Patio will be live-streaming a DJ set, at 8pm where you can enjoy its special mix of music without anyone grinding within six feet of you.
Cost: Free

Have Easter dinner delivered

Sunday, April 12
Granted, you’ll probably have nothing but time to prepare Easter dinner this year. But if you’d still rather not deal with the hassle, plenty of local restaurants are happy to deliver it to you. Ariete will have beef roast, yellowtail, or lamb for four with a bottle of Cava for $125. Casa Sensei will serve you Easter with an Asian twist (Korean steak, anyone!) with Easter Eggs included for $119. Adam & Joe’s has ham, chicken, mac and cheese, and other sides for $99 for 4-6. And Pubbelly Sushi will throw in an Easter Egg with a special surprise with any Easter order.
