Freaky shit happens in the Magic City come Friday the 13th.
Full moon bashes are thrown, free parties appear out of thin air, and regular lounges transform into mystical gardens like some sort of magic.
Yeah, it's weird.
But instead of being all superstitious about it, go and get your freak on at the ten best parties under $10 this weekend from Brisk Bodega with DJ Mustard at Grand Central to Jazid's 18th anniversary celebration to experimental music at Space Mountain Miami.
