Thursday, October 7

On Thursday, the Ground hosts an all-ages show featuring dream-pop trio the Polar Boys and Gainesville-born, Miami-based quintet the Hails.

Both bands are still reeling from their successful debut releases, World Domination and He Seems Upset, respectively.

The show marks the beginning of a statewide Blood Runs Cold Tour co-headlined by the two indie outfits.

7 p.m. Thursday, at the Ground, 34 NE 11th St., Miami; thegroundmiami.com. Tickets cost $10 via eventbrite.com.

If you get lulled into a sense of security in the comfort of your car at the Horrorland Drive-Thru, you’re in for a big surprise.

The aim of the game is to get spooked and Live 305 Entertainment has been giving even suspecting guests nightmares for two consecutive years now.

With eight drive-thru haunted houses, movie-quality makeup, and convincing special effects, the spooky event is sure to do the trick.

7 to 11 p.m. Thursday through October 31, at Aventura Mall Parking Lot, 19501 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura; 305-935-1110; thehorrorland.com. Tickets cost $48.99 to $58.99 via eventbrite.com.

On Thursday, experience Miami DanceMakers (MDM) at the Pérez Art Museum Museum for a night of live art.

Taking over the museum’s galleries, the dancers will perform choreography inspired by the artwork on display.

MDM was launched in 2021 by acclaimed artistic director Adele Myers and sees artists paired with local cultural institutions, which offer rehearsal space and professional support.

7 p.m. Thursday, at Perez Art Museum Miami, 1103 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-375-3000; pamm.org. Tickets cost $12 to $16; free for children six and under.

Spooky season is officially upon us. And what Miami lacks in autumn leaves and cool weather, we sure do make up for with over-the-top creepy cocktails.

This year, South Florida’s bartenders have conjured up some killer libations strong enough to revive even the deadest of Halloween spirits. From ghoulish black tipples to vampire-approved potions, trick or treat yourself to one (or all) of the Halloween-inspired drinks on this list.

Your ultimate travel guide to Miami Beach — hotels, activities, restaurants, and more

Miami Beach: Just those two words evoke steaming sun, sexy beaches, exuberant nightlife, celebrity chefs, mixologists offering their talents, stunning hotels, culture and arts, and shopping opportunities — all encased within historic art-decoMiami Modern, and Mediterranean Revival architecture.

It’s amazing to think that only a couple of decades ago, Miami Beach — specifically the historic neighborhood South Beach — was known as “Heaven’s Waiting Room.”

Today, the city has earned itself a different nickname: the “American Riviera.”

The name hints at a playful paradise where it’s impossible to experience the city all at once — especially as the pace and demand create new venues and opportunities for entertainment.

The best way to explore Miami Beach is to follow the lead of the roughly 3.5 million annual visitors — by returning again and again.

Getting to and around Miami Beach

Founded in 1928, Miami International Airport (MIA) is the leader in flights to and from Latin America and the Caribbean.

In fact, the transit hub hosts more than 100 airlines and is the nation’s third-busiest airport for international airports.

About 60% of those who visit Miami arrive via MIA, which is about 13 miles from the heart of South Beach.

Miami Book Fair is back — and this edition will include in-person events.

Last year, the beloved annual event that draws thousands to Miami Dade College’s downtown Wolfson campus took place virtually, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

There were no live author readings, no delightfully greasy arepas to eat.

No streets packed with happy readers clutching tote bags stuffed with real, made-from-dead-trees books.

This year the fair, which runs Nov. 14-21, is a hybrid, a blend of in-person and online events that brings the fair closer to what it was before our story took an unfortunate turn in 2020.
