Pause for a Cause at Fritz & Franz Bierhaus
5 p.m. Thursday, $10+
You know how to party, but you could be better about giving back to the city that makes it so easy to do so. If all you have to offer is your willingness to get down, you can still help. Pause for a Cause is urging Miamians to “party for a purpose” at an annual event where making merry is the only requirement for charitable giving.
"Wilderness: The Delicate and the Fierce" at Laundromat Art Space
7 p.m. Thursday, free
At a time when the EPA is being dismantled and national parks are going rogue on social media to protect their integrity, it’s important that we the people react by celebrating nature. Laundromat Art Space in Little Haiti is doing just that with "Wilderness: The Delicate and the Fierce," curated by Christin Paige Minnotte and featuring work by Minnotte, Leah Brown, Christina Pettersson, and Lisu Vega.
Cultra 3 at Miami Science Barge
7:30 Thursday, free
Snag an opportunity to showcase your skills to a live audience during the inaugural Cultra, a roving open-mike event hosted in a downtown Miami park every third Thursday through May. This month's event will be held on the Miami Science Barge.
St. Pat's Wynwood at Wynwood Alley at Mana
4 p.m. Friday, free
Forget your last few St. Patrick's Days (if you can remember them to begin with) and debauch with throngs of kelly-green-clad college kids at St. Pat's Wynwood. Last year's party-at-the-end-of-the-rainbow attracted more than 20,000 revelers for green beer and leprechauns, and this year stands to attract an even larger crowd via arts and crafts, food trucks, DJs, and Jameson whiskey. You'll invoke the true luck of the Irish when you black out and somehow don't wake up on a street corner.
