Walking up the stark stairwell toward the Garret's dance floor, we asked the legendary DJ Craze just where in the hell he got the idea to make a pig his label's mascot. He said it all comes back to something Klever once said.
"I don't play that fast food music," he said. "My tunes are slow roasted. ... More >>
The weekend is so close, you can almost smell it.
In a few hours, you'll want to throw your papers in the air, run out of the cubicle, and make your way to the nearest bar for happy hour. The possibilities will seem endless, but that doesn't mean you have to blow all of your hard earned cash on par ... More >>

Most art is silent. Even during Basel week.
That's why we here at Crossfade -- an admittedly hopeless gaggle of noise junkies -- just can't get through the week without offsetting our 12-hour days at the art fairs with 12-hour nights at Miami's hipster bars, rock dives, and downtown concert hall ... More >>
Most of us working stiffs don't have mad cash to drop on huge quantities of good-quality beer. What is the alternative? Twenty-four-hour gas stations stocked with little rescue kits of mass-produced brew.There are many selections, but here is a list of ten that every beer fiend should consider when ... More >>
Did you drop the bulk of your paycheck on an NCAA March Madness office pool? Us too. But our shit's a lock, yo. We've got Florida State over Michigan State in the finals, with Kentucky and Kansas rounding out the Final Four.

Valentine's Day is next week. You'll likely be suckered into dropping mad loot on something extravagant like a $1,400 couples massage or $400 surf 'n' turf dinner inside a private pool cabana at the Four Seasons.

It's technically day one, but the madness has already begun. We've seen buck naked supervillains. We've seen flashy disco flooring.

Back in March, we debuted Ultra Bingo. The exploration of a subculture through a game of chance was more enjoyable that we thought it would be, so why not apply it to another major Miami event? So here you have it, Basel Bingo!Like its Ultra cousin, Basel Bingo is packed with (stereotypical)

Dustin AskinsDon't be a snob about renting a keg. No one's going to think you're Van Wilder's older, uglier brother. You're just thrifty. Providing libation for your closest 40 alcoholic buds during the Super Bowl can get pricey. In a crappy economy, the smartest way to go is with the money-saver ... More >>

Being one of the premiere art festivals of the year, not just any Joe Blow can show during Art Basel. You'd need connections, talent, or...a pack of markers, a glue gun, and some stray sequins.

No nametags but plenty of booze.This year's fourth tweetup was a blast at Lucky Strike on South Beach, although once again, it was more like a rockin' party than a proper tweetup.
