10 Fun Things To Do Week of May 24th: Art, Comedy, Cooking and MORE!
On.Miami proudly presents a brand-new new feature, FUN10, a list of the top 10 things to do in Miami this week, and every week! Every Sunday, we’ll drop a new FUN10, to give you a head start on your week and a heads up on what’s going on over the coming seven days. Check out FUN10 every Sunday for the details on ten awesome events happening around town. It’s a cool read, and a great way to get started planning your entertainment for the week.
Due to the cancellation of so many regularly scheduled events in Miami – with more coming in every hour – we’re focusing this week’s edition of Fun10Miami on fun entertainment you can enjoy in the safety of your own home or while practicing safe ‘social distancing’.
So what’s on the FUN10 for this week? Read on …

Enjoy a Girls Night In with Taste Buds Kitchen
Taste Buds Kitchen is so excited to bring you their brand-new online cooking classes!
Artisan pizza fresh from the oven? Yes, please! Join us as we learn the secret tricks behind working with yeast and preparing dough from scratch, shaping dough and creating a variety of thin-crust pizzas. Once you see how easy and delicious homemade pizza can be, you may think twice before ordering delivery again. Bring your own ingredients and beverage of choice. Let’s have fun in the Kitchen and learn something new as we #stayhome!
How This Works
Live Online Class: This class is offered online as a live cooking class. We’ll be sharing the same amazing culinary entertainment you’d get if you were in our Kitchen, except you can be in your jammies (no judgement here). Ask questions, take notes, and have our owners Beatriz and Laura answer you LIVE from their Kitchen in Miami. We promise it’ll feel a whole lot like you’re in our Kitchen and you’ll be practicing safe social distancing as we all #stayhome. At the end of the class, we’ll all “sit down” (virtually of course) to savor what we’ve made. We can’t wait to cook with you soon!
Shopping List: After registering, you will receive a confirmation email that includes a short shopping list along with the recipes so that you can purchase what you need to actively participate. If you can’t find all of the ingredients, you can still join the class and either omit that ingredient or just enjoy learning along with us. If you have specific questions about allergy or other substitution requests, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to help you.
Accessing the Class: You will need to download the free Zoom app onto your desktop, tablet or phone before the class. After registering, you will receive a separate email that includes a Zoom link to our online class. We recommend joining from a laptop to see better but tablets work just fine as well. Please have all of your ingredients ready and equipment ready/fully charged and your recipes open (or printed).
BYOB: Our classes are BYOB (in our Kitchen and at-home) so please have whatever you’d like to drink in hand. 🙂 It’s going to be so much fun!
Spread the Word: Please help us to spread the word to your friends and family. We’d love to have them cook along with us! 100% of the proceeds of all online classes will go towards offsetting fixed overhead costs during this difficult time due to COVID-19. #supportsmallbusiness #TBKatHome
Want a private class for you and your friends, a fun team-building corporate zoom call, a date night private lesson just for you and your plus one or a private family class? We’d be happy to host you! Email email@example.com to arrange.

“Wherever you are in the world, forget about that now, close your eyes … and imagine that you are being transported into the eighth arrondissement of Paris,” says Oliver Gee, the host of the popular Paris podcast The Earful Tower. The podcast has 60,000 downloads per month and was recently lauded by the New York Times as a great way to travel by ear.
Originally from Australia, Oliver has lived in Paris since 2015. Paris On Air, a memoir telling the often laugh-out-loud stories from his past five years in the French capital, is his first book.
You can join a live virtual meeting with Oliver on Saturday, May 30, at 11 am via Zoom. It will be mostly in English with a smattering of French terms. Oliver will show us the view of the Eiffel Tower from his Montmartre apartment, and he’ll share readings from his memoir.
Look for a lively Q&A session with our own Director Russell Kelley, where he shows his tips of Paris, the language, and more!
Registrants will receive an exclusive discount code for a hot-off-the-press copy of his memoir, which ships from Seattle in just days. The discount reduces the price of the paperback book from 25 euros to 20 euros.
