You know it's summer in Miami....
When the best way to get a little respite from the heat is July's Spa Month. Plenty of spas on the cheap, helping us get out from the stickiness? Yes, please.
When Facebook and Instagram become flooded with pictures at Marlins games at the new stadium — and hopefully our homerun dolphin statue will get put to good use.
Marlins Stadium, 501 Marlins Way.
When you get your Goombay on at the wild and colorful Miami Goombay Festival. Hey, we are one of the best places to hear Goombay in the U.S.
Thursday, August 2 to Sunday August 5, Goombay Festival, Coconut Grove.
When The Summer Shorts or “mini plays” at the Arsht Center send us into a theatre-planning frenzy.
Adrienne Arsht Center, 1300 Biscayne Boulevard; 305-949- 6722.
When The Haulover Sandbar is like a constant party, but never so much as it is on the Fourth of July.
When our kind of fashion week surfaces in July, with bikinis and swim at the front-and-center.
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week from Thursday, July 19 to Monday, July 23.
Because we live in Miami and have access to the best mangos in the states. So we celebrate it (and "20 years of the mango!") with the International Mango Festival at the idyllic Fairchild Garden.
Saturday, July 14, 2012 to Sunday, July 15, International Mango Festival, 10901 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables; 305-667-1651.
When we are all sitting around, chewing our nails, hoping that The Heat keeps killing it like they have been and go all the way with the NBA playoffs. Good luck against the Colts, guys!
