Welcome to the week before Christmas. Do you know where your sanity is?
Yes, because even though you’re still trying to order gifts online and your kids are done with school for the year, you have learned to how to cope. We hope.
Still, you might want to get out this weekend in a socially distanced kind of way.
Here’s what’s open and closed in Miami if you do.
Don’t plan on a late night: Miami-Dade curfew remains from midnight until 6 a.m., and Miami city police plan to enforce the curfew as COVID-19 cases rise in the state. Masks are still required in most businesses so mask up.
Wynwood Walls reopens: The outdoor attraction reopens Dec. 18 with a new system (you’ll need to order tickets online ahead of time for social distancing). Tickets are free through Jan. 18.
Drive-In Groovy: Hip hop star Rick Ross and friends will perform a socially-distant concert at Miramar Regional Park Amphitheater, 16801 Miramar Pkwy. Doors open at 8:30 p.m Dec. 19; show starts 9:30 pm. Tickets $96; www.driveingroovy.com.
Holiday events: You can check out Zoo Lights at Zoo Miami or this drive-thru family show at Tamiami Park.
Restaurants are open (except for those that have closed permanently during the COVID-19 pandemic. RIP.) In fact, many new restaurants have opened in the past several months. They’re open for dining in, but many have outdoor areas and takeout or delivery options.
If you’re planning to eat out on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, these restaurants are open with special holiday menus. Make reservations soon.
