CORAL GABLES— If the line that forms outside of Shoe Gallery when an exclusive sneaker is released is any indication of Miami's rubber-soled obsession, then it's only fitting that Sole Swappin', a traveling sneaker convention, make a stop down here. On Saturday, June 21, the Bank Atlantic Center will be filled with coveted Air Jordan exclusives, rare Nike soles and any other shoe that can make a sneakerhead drool. Tickets run between $28 and $40 and you can invest in them here.
SOUTH BEACH— Divorce Parties are not folklore, they're real! This Friday, June 20, divorce coach Debbie Martinez will be hosting Miami's first official divorce party on the rooftop of The Riviera Hotel from 6 to 9pm. Highlights include cake, live entertainment, cocktails and ring caskets. Plus, you can rid yourself of your bad marriage mojo by donating your wedding gown. In return you'll receive a "Moving On Box," which comes items like rose colored glasses, a compass and whistle to guide you through the singles pool and a nutcracker, because you never know when you'll need one. The event is complimentary and open to all.
SOUTH BEACH— It's time for The James Royal Palm's Wellness Day this Saturday, June 21!

Complimentary spa treatments will then ensue, and Blu Lua will be selling their handcrafted gems. In addition, you'll receive a $25 renew the spa credit, and access to their lovely hotel amentities.
