MIAMI – The heat is on, in more ways than one. The Summer Groove is as hot as the weather in Miami, with celebs galore in town for the 14th year of the charity weekend started by former Miami Heat player Alonzo Mourning. Now teaming up with Heat player and Three Kings founder Dwyane Wade, the Groove dominates our weekend events, with a comedy show on Friday night, a benefit dinner on Saturday night and block party and celebrity basketball game on Sunday.

If you’re not already in the MIA, come on down for what should be a great weekend that is also for some good causes. (Proceeds go to both men’s charitable foundations.) If you can’t get here, check out our list of what’s happening near your town.
