There are two rules to remember if you wanna have a good time. Rule number one: Never run out of Colt 45. Rule number two: Never forget rule number one. Damn you, Billy Dee Williams, for implanting those rules in our heads at such an early age. How could anyone resist the siren call of Lando Calrissian? We figure well-known Miami graffiti artist Aholsniffsglue felt the same way. Not only did he compete in a recent Colt 45 design contest (under the incredible pseudonym Alouishous San Gomma), but also hes hosting Coltoberfest 305, an only-in-Miami mashup of music and art being held at where else? Churchills. The show is being sponsored by Colt 45 and Vice magazine, so you should already know what youre getting into. Come for more cold Colts than you can guzzle, and check out the miniature works of art painted on Colt 45 quarts by the likes of Ahol, 131Projects, Typoe, Griz, and many of the other artists whove been making their names known on walls in Wynwood. A five-dollar donation to the recently vandalized Sweat Records is all you need to make this dream come alive. The fun starts at 9 p.m. Call 305-757-1807, or visit sweatrecordsmiami.blogspot.com.
Earn your evening of malt-liquor-guzzling by getting sweaty during the sunshiny hours at yet another sponsored event. Fujifilm is hosting Z Spot Now, a DJ skateboarding throwdown at M.I.A Skatepark (1850 NW 84 Ave., Ste. 108, Doral). DJ Z-Trip provides the sounds, Habitat Skate Crew provides the tricks, and you provide the OMGs. Admission is free but limited, so you gotta RSVP. Visit www.zspotnow.com/group/zspotmiamiguestlist to sign up, and www.zspotnow.com/zspotmiami for a list of celeb skaters expected to appear.
