From Talib Kweli to Funk Ffest, these are the best things to do in Miami the week of December 28 to January 3.


In a city as self-conscious as Miami, a guide to the best restaurants, party ideas, and travel destinations can feel like a necessity. The Cocktailz & Coconutz series is here to provide just that with the help of Jean-Désir Fils, AKA the Lifestyle Connoisseur. You can be introduced to the brand this festive season at its holiday party, including craft cocktails, a pair of menu choices, and live music. Proceeds from the party will benefit the Laptop Hustle Initiative, a nonprofit that supports local college students. 7 p.m. Thursday at the Tuck Room, 3701 NE 163rd St., North Miami Beach; Tickets cost $35 to $60 via
