Over The Weekend - Miami's Birthday Bash, Summer of Steel and Black Sundays
The sky was falling on local hipsters the weekend, as The Vagabond was shut down by the fire department after an acoustic ceiling panel fell on a patron. Don't worry, I hear she's is doing fine. But Vagabond's closure didn't help an already lackluster weekend. Still, there were some hidden gems out there if you knew where to look.
Summer of Steel at Hooters Pembroke Pines
Our neighbors to the north are an odd bunch. Then again, in the land of strip malls and gated communities, there is little to do except than to gather at the local Hooters as BIG 105.9 FM DJs Paul and Young Ron hand out Harley Davidson motorcycles.
Miami's 112 Birthday Bash at Edificio Jose Marti
With a recent face lift to her skyline, Miami was looking better than ever for her 112th birthday. People gathered at Edificio Jose Marti, located basically where Brickell meets Little Havana, to wish her happy birthday. Blowfly, Clarence Reid, Otto Von Schirach, Chongalicious Girls and more keep the crowds entertained during the celebration.
Black Sunday at Bella Rose
Bella Rose, a venue owned by Cocaine Cowboys producer Alfred Spellman and Keith Paciello, plays host to a local favorite called Black Sunday. Local scenester Alexis Mincolla welcomes South Beach's party zombies to pull up the strength to party one more night.
