Free Beer! Heineken Mural Project's Pop-Up Party Series Launches Tonight

Artists like Trek6, CP1, and Prime have all added to Miami's street culture landscape with new murals in Wynwood and Midtown. And that's great and all. But no work of art has been properly feted in this town without popping a few bottles.

Especially if they're beer bottles. And free.

Phase two of the Heineken Mural Project launches tonight, when the public's invited to stop by the first of three pop-up parties to celebrate the completion of Heineken's commissioned murals.

Heineken beer will flow freely -- in that it's free of charge, that is -- at the Heineken Artist Hub & Gallery, aka The Workshop Collective. The open bar lasts from 5-8 p.m., and will feature music by Keen One.

The next two pop-up parties will take place on the streets themselves, at two mural sites. The freeloading ends there, sadly -- something about the questionable legality of distributing alcoholic beverages to random passers-by. But don't let The Man get you down. Take a cue from the Universal Aloha Wall, site of tomorrow's party, and get in touch with your friendly Hawaiian side. (And, y'know, bring a few bucks for beers.)
