While Gustav missed us completely, the storm made for one gloomy Labor Day weekend. The sun finally managed to come out on Labor Day, thankfully, because we were about to declare this weekend a bust solely on the fact that its was almost completely sunless. But despite the lack of sun, there was plenty to do over the long weekend.

Sheila Witkin Memorial Reunion Concert at Club Cinema
As much as the event tried not to be about Johnny Depp, it was Depp-mania this weekend as the actor was in town to play with his old band the Kids for the Sheila Witkin Memorial Reunion Concert at Club Cinema in Pompano Beach. Click here for our review of the event. Bonus video of Depp rocking out above.

Sunday Night at Bella Rose, Buck 15 and Laundry Bar
No work Monday means you can drink yourself to oblivion on Sunday night and plenty took advantage of the Labor Day holiday to do just that. We hopped around the beach to check out the scene at a few venues. Click here to view the full slideshow.
