Flyer of the Week: Mary Jane Mondays at Jazid
A minute ago, still buzzing from the twin highs of payday and a certain psychotropic substance, I had the sudden realization: Green is a very good color. For a second, it seemed like a weird kind of intellectual smoke that meant precisely nothing, just floating past. Then, the rest came: Green is the color of money and green is the color of ganja. And all seemed right with the world until James Brown popped out of a fifty-dollar bill, screaming: "Go unto Mary Jane Mondays, son!!!"
Mary Jane Mondays is a night for those who know the green in all its
shades. And yes, it's also a night for those who enjoy free chicken
wings till midnight. But moreover -- with DJs Kenny Dynamite and Fiyah
Vibez dropping hot wax of the funk, classic hip-hop, reggae, and other
grooveable varieties -- it's a night that is, as the Godfather himself
would scream: "A taste of the real Soul ... Ya dig!!!!"
Monday. Jazid, 1342 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Doors open at 10
p.m., and admission is free. Ages 21+ with ID. 305-673-9372; jazid.net
