The Free Stuff
A Night With Seraphin and Friends at Foxhole
Dig in at Foxhole, the upscale Miami Beach bar, with L.A.-based DJ Seraphin. A fan of remixing everything from Britney Spears to hip-hop to 1960s doo-wop, Seraphin boasts an all-inclusive repertoire.

Add that this is an official Ultra pre-party and it makes his show the priciest of the bunch at $55. There isn’t much to say to sell Aoki — he’s a high-energy dude who spends almost as much time in front of the tables as he does behind them, pumping up the crowd via smoke robots and the occasional cake-throwing.
