Nocturnal Parties on the Beach

This Saturday, Miami Beach becomes an insomniac's dreamland (so to speak) with 150 events occurring all night long, all over the beach. Highlights include a midnight show by the Spam Allstars and free admission to the Bass Museum, but we're most excited about the Cuban dance party at the Fillmore.

No cost, 6pm-7am, Nov 7, various locations, more info here
