Miami's beloved monthly Friday-night party is riding high on three successful rounds of wild functions at the Thompson Hotel. Guests have included your girl, Rae
DZA actually is there every Wednesday night for Basement's weekly Jelly party, and he often makes an appearance behind the decks at Boombox Saturdays.
