Art Beats for Life Tonight in Wynwood

Studying a WMC event schedule can be dizzying. So many great parties with superb lineups, and usually the ticket prices throw in a few perks. Despite the endless options, you still may be torn on which to attend.

Our suggestion: Art Beats For Life, a WMC party that's going on tonight, Wednesday March 21st, at 8pm at Gallery 212. (2407 NW 2nd Ave. Miami) It's completely free of those painfully guilty feelings you may have the morning after a WMC event. (I paid $120 to get shoulder-bumped all night... great!)

Not only do the proceeds go to The American Cancer Society, the low ticket price (of $30 at the door) sits particularly well with your wallet. And, your stomach. Entry not only includes all access to the DJ's and art, but also unlimited amounts of booze and food.

While you're waiting for your place at the bar, flag down a server and grab as many hors d'oeuvres from local authentic Nicaraguan diner, Fritanga Montelimar, as you can fit into your mouth. (Party tricks!)

Not to be shown up, Cuban food on wheels: Café Con Leche, will also be showcasing their culinary skills outside.

Café Con Leche may be best known to some local foodies as the truck that appeared on the Food Network's second season of The Great Food Truck Race.

Check out the amateur footage of this wacky truck below.

"It's a positive event, with great energy, ambiance and a really strong message," said event manager Troy Goings. "Oh, and some really good food of course!"

Beats, eats and art aren't the only stars of this show, popular local pop artist Michael Perez and his son will also be center stage. Michael will be displaying both vintage and new pieces, and Jason Perez will be joining over 13 international DJs, spinning tunes ranging from house to trance, until 2 a.m.
