While hurricane scares are a real thing this month, another real thing is that summer is finally and regretfully, coming to a close. But if these next few weeks show us anything, it’s that Miami sure knows how to throw one hell of a going away party. We’re talking star-studden food festivals, chart-climbing performances, award-season shoe in screenings, and everything in between. We’re making sure that we do summer justice by saying goodbye in style. Take a look:
