What to do While You’re Missing iii Points

If you’re like me, you aren’t going to the iii Points Music Festival, and you’re sad about it. There are numerous reasons to not be in attendance: money, school, work … Even still, I can personally foresee myself experiencing a lot of FOMO as I watch snapchat stories of the festival. To potentially prevent feeling sorry for myself, I decided to take charge of my President’s Day weekend. Miami is never boring and there’s never nothing or even just one cool thing to do. Here’s some [cheaper] things you can do instead of III Points:
