If you missed out, here’s your weekend roundup:

FRIDAY: Miami Heat vs Philadelphia 76ers 

The Miami Heat kicked off the sports-heavy weekend on Friday night. The team took home a win against the Philadelphia 76ers on their home turf at American Airlines Arena, 125-102. The victory called for even more reason to celebrate on Friday night at Miami’s haute destinations Rockwell or STORY.


Daytime parties commenced as Miamians sipped rosé in the sun. The who’s who could be spotted at Soho Beach House or The Standard as they blasted beats by the pool, while others chose to get some Vitamin D on their private yachts. Nighttime festivities continued with sips of Perrier-Jouët at new nightlife haute spot ORA.
