New York Magazine has done a “weekend escapes” story on how to live the luxe life for less as a traveler to Miami. Since they recommended checking Miami FL on the Cheap for tips, I figure they must know what they’re talking about.
A few nuggets:
* The upscale Fratelli Lyon, 4141 NE Second Ave., Miami, has free appetizers from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursdays.
* Design District Second Saturday, the free art walk in Wynwood and the Design District, is a great place to find new talent and free drinks.
