A- Boy Writes Miami found himself with some time on his hands today.
B- The Heat Lightning lists some Miami art openings to tide you over until 2nd Saturday.
C- Under the Sun readers share their green flash photos from Key West and elsewhere.
Under the Sun recently ran a piece on green flashes – a green light that appears in the sky for a fleeting moment when the sun dips below the horizon. Many believe the green flash to be a myth, but it actually has a scientific explanation: refraction. We asked readers if they had ever seen a green flash. Many sent us stories and pictures of their experience with the atmospheric phenomenon.D- Check out the this week's theater scene at South Florida Theatre Scene.
E- South Florida Lawyers critiques The Donald's latest losing win in Palm Beach.

It's the night of the yearly Pajama Pub Crawl, which is tied in with the Great Grove Bed Race, the next day. Also, it's the first Saturday of the month, so it's Gallery Walk Night. The streets should be jammed with partiers and art lovers.J- I can't help but think of the Malcolm X quote, "A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything," when I read Radio or Not's criticism of President Obama.
