Different languages, customs, and traditions separate one country from the next. But there's one thing places around the globe share a passion for: booze. On January 25, Miami's historic Moore Building transforms into a melting pot of spirits, showcasing hooch from a dozen countries.

Here, attendees don't need plane tickets or jetpacks to cross borders—they simply stroll from one station to the next, sipping more than 100 vodkas, tequilas, sakes, beers, whiskeys, and other alcohols along the way. At each stop, staffers stamp the attendees' provided passports, which they can use to claim a gift bag at the end of the night or to take a trip to Canada. But the evening's drinking serves a higher purpose than just getting schnookered, as proceeds from the event will be poured back into Ronald McDonald House Charities.

On the sidewalk outside the Wolfsonian’s sprawling white walls, six people crane their necks to take in the building’s ornate golden detailing as their guide chats animatedly about Miami’s penchant for art deco architecture. The balmy breeze that's familiar to the city follows the group as they wend along Lincoln Road, propelling them into an area restaurant for a relaxed meal whipped up by some of the city’s finest chefs. This tour of South Beach, part of a trio of Miami art, architecture, and culinary tours, enables guests to experience the city’s bountiful cultural offerings through the anecdotes and historical tidbits poetry-slammed by a knowledgeable guide.

In the heart of Miami’s Wynwood art district sits a repurposed Drug Enforcement Agency facility, which today holds one of the world’s largest privately-held contemporary art collections. The 45,000 square foot space is the work of Donald and Mera Rubell and their creation of the Rubell Family Collection/Contemporary Arts Foundation, which has put the collection on view for all to see. Since 1993, the Rubell family has been sharing their collection of works from such world-renown artists as Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. The collection also offers a lecture series, a special partnership with the Miami Dade-County Public Schools and complimentary audio tours on Saturdays.

O Cinema is one of Miami’s most celebrated independent movie houses. Its goal is to provide an offering of films that otherwise might not be seen in Miami – foreign features, independent movies, artsy shorts and stunning documentaries. The Wynwood location of this small Miami chain is more diminutive than your usual cinema multiplex, but the art house feel makes you feel closer to the film itself. There are actually three different screening areas throughout the facility, and on those ever-present warm nights the O Cinema team might even put together a free outdoor screening. And, since the theater is located in Wynwood, there’s an adjoining space for art installations right on site.

The award-winning acting coach and filmmaker Ralph Kinnard still offers classes for beginners and professionals at Miami Acting Studio. His acting workshops are based on the techniques of Lee Strassberg (he of Actor’s Studio fame), the father of modern acting. Each once-a-week session works to teach actors the basics and beyond, by building on their natural instincts, emotions and abilities, before taking risks on stage. The class work includes improvisation and scene development to help actors build their craft, and many of the Studio’s graduates find work have had success in television and movies. Best of all: the first class is always free.
