Do you even remember what you did on New Year's Eve? If you had any fun, the answer should be an awkward "Umm, maybe?"
We here at Crossfade know how it goes, so we're here to remind you. In the case that you attended these superfancy events (but perhaps don't remember), you may recognize yourself in some of the pictures. In the case that you didn't, we can all just play pretend.
Here is a recap of how Miami welcomed 2014, in pics.
Let's begin our journey with the good people of Belvedere, who brought chart-topper Robin Thicke and everyone's favorite EDM vocalist Skylar Grey to the stage. They took over the SLS Hotel, converting the outdoor space into a wonderland of lush fashions and premium alcohol.
Skylar Grey proved she's more than just a beautiful voice, taking her place at the keys and enchanting the partiers. Her voice could soothe the savage beast. Or at least calm the guy who drank too much Belvedere in the back.
Thicke took the stage in his usual dapper attire. (Although, thankfully, he left his Beetlejuice suit in the deepest part of his closet.) Odds are favorable that Robin dipped into the Belvedere too.
Meanwhile at Story, there was a whole dark-clown-circus theme going down. The place was decked out with more lights and sexy jesters than the Joker's wet dreams.
This bitch was all "heeeeyyyyy!"
The famed Luciano brought his Vagabundos party to South Beach (hence the crazy circus vibe), and judging by his huge-ass smile, he was stoked to be there with his best Miami buddies.
And hey! These beautiful people found love. Congrats!
Alright, you can't top an engagement. So we move on to Story's sister club LIV, where Tiësto was bringing the best of his old and new selections. It was one of the highest ticket prices in the city. Obvi, this Dutchman has the most excited (and wealthy) fans in the business.
Oh shit! Afrojack showed up! He was doing a gig just down the hall of the Fontainebleau, which is where LIV makes its home. More on that party later.
Before we leave, let's take some more looks at the excited and wealthy Tiësto fans. Here's one!
And another one!
You're getting the idea...
Down the hall in the Fontainebleau, Pharrell showed up in the world's greatest hat. He and Afrojack were too stoked on life to smile.
As it turns out, Pharrell knows the club's owner, David Grutman.
He also knows T.I. So suffice it to say, Pharrell has more famous friends than you.
He rocked the crowd, and was even joined by some of his famous friends.
After midnight, Afrojack hit the stage and collectively hit on the entire crowd. Enticing.
It looks like he brought the pain. Sweet, sweet electro-house pain.
Now, let's finish our journey at Cameo where Lil Wayne predictably said "fuck the New Year" while his buddy Baby lit up a blunt that would make Cheech and Chong squinty-eyed.
T.I was party-hopping and he made sure to roll through for Lil Tunechi's big bash.
Weezy rocked the mic for a bit, which is more than he usually does during guest appearances. He was lookin' swag in his Trukfit gear.
And before we leave, to quote The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, here's your moment of Zen.
Happy 2014, everybody!
