The world's gaze may be set on Miami this weekend thanks to one of the most attended electronic music festivals in DJ-land, Ultra. If that's your sort of thing, check out our Miami Music Week guide here.
For the rest of Miami, we've compiled a handful of events that don't involve glow sticks, Deadmaus, or Hello Kitty flare.
There's a fashion week on the Beach, a crab fest down Old Culter Road, and concerts that involve actual drums as opposed to drum machines.
For ongoing Around Town coverage -- including which streets to avoid for Ultra -- check our Live Blog.
