Seven Things to Do in Fort Lauderdale During Art Basel 2014

With Art Basel, the massive and pricey marketplace, setting up shop on Miami Beach and just about every "it" act swarming to town to perform just miles south of us, there's no shortage of things to do in Pitbull's hometown this week.

But let's say you just want to keep it local this week. What's going on in the 954 and the 561 to keep culture junkies occupied? Although we don't have a full-blown art fair, we still have a couple of very cool things going down around here. Some of these events are linked to Art Basel, creating a tricounty fusion of sorts.

To see what's happening in your neighborhood, check out the following list.

Bonus: Some of them are free.
