The picture perfect weather could not have arrived at a better moment. This weekend, get ready for the Miami Music Festival, new brunches and a trail of great cocktails along the way.

Tacontento Opens the Agave Bar
No need to wait until the weekend to get started. Locally loved Tacontento on Lincoln Lane opens its Agave Bar tonight (Nov. 11th) with a big launch party. This evening, the margarita takes backstage to complimentary tequila cocktails that focus on freshness by utilizing fruit purees and aromatic herbs and spices. With complimentary beer, wine and bites being passed around, the Agave Bar is set for a packed house and a great night from 6 p.m to 10 p.m.

The Miami Music Festival
Featuring over 400 acts, The Second Annual Miami Music Festival starts tonight (Nov. 11th) and runs through Sunday (Nov 14th). With venues all over the city hosting performances, there are watering hole options to satisfy any imbibing and music aesthetic, among them Cafeina, The Living Room, Tobacco Road, The Grove Spot, and Titantic Brewery. All-access tickets are a steal at $25 for the entire weekend or at $15 for single-night access. Don't get too carried away rocking out around the city. Bayfront Park hosts the main event (complete with an all-day BBQ) on Saturday and Sunday. And, as you know, Mia at Biscayne and the DRB are right in the neighborhood.

Tailored Fridays at Sunset Lounge
Audaciously chic cocktailians rejoice! The Mondrian's posh Sunset Lounge begins its new Friday weekly tomorrow at 10 p.m. Featuring house, R & B and hip-hop, Tailored Fridays matches haute style with fine cocktails and a beautiful bay view. Strut out to the Mondrian in your finest South Beach chic and lounge in luxury.

The Aqua Affair
Nothing is better than eating, drinking and celebrating for a cause. This Saturday join The Aqua Foundation for Women's Aqua Affair at The Space in the Wynwood Design District. Your $30 ticket benefits these wonderful women's work to insure wellness and equality for the LBT community in South Florida. Meet them at 8 p.m. to enjoy an evening of bites, Aquatinis and a silent auction. The Space is located at 104 NE 24 Street. Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door.

Brunch Just Got Better
Two new brunches that linger well into the afternoon are available this weekend. Sugarcane is launching Saturday and Sunday offerings that include breakfast, raw bar options and sushi. Served up with pitchers of caipirinhas or sangria, this weekend restorative calls for a few hours of leaning back with fresh libations. If you prefer the view on South Beach, head over to Nikki Beach for its new Sunday brunch complete with omelette, waffle and sushi stations as well as optional VIP bottle and beverage service. If that wasn't enough to savor, massages are also available for those who need their tummy rubbed after overindulging.

Eat, drink, play and just call the damn cab: 304-444-4444.
