Smash a mirror. Step on a crack. Walk beneath a ladder and lure a stray black cat to cross your path. Don’t knock wood, cross your fingers, or toss a single grain of salt over your shoulder.
Go ahead, jinx yourself as many ways as you can imagine. Then head to Lucky You! 5, the annual fundraising raffle at the Bakehouse Art Complex (561 NW 32nd St., Miami), where no matter what you’ve done, you’ll likely end up a winner.
Works of art, most created by the Bakehouse’s 70 artists in residence, will be up for raffle throughout the evening, meaning you can score a killer painting, sculpture, or other piece for as little as a $10 ticket. With more than 70 works up for grabs, and an expected attendance of around 400, you have a pretty decent shot at winning your favorite item — especially if you double or triple down on those raffle tickets.
Even if you don’t take home a modern masterpiece, you’ll still have spent the night roving the Bakehouse’s museum-like hallways and studios, listening to live music by Amtrac, and enjoying snacks and wine by Jordan Vineyard. And hey, if you manage to use your newfound cultural knowledge to impress a fellow appreciator of the arts, you could end up getting lucky in the traditional sense of the phrase.
