Late Night menu at Blue Collar, DJ Chino in the 954 and 'Girl Rising'

Blue Collar, the 6730 Biscayne Blvd. fave, is getting into the late night biz with a new menu available until 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays beginning officially next Friday, March 29. On that menu are items only available in the wee hours, including fried smoked gouda, jambalaya and, says chef/owner Daniel Serfer, “the city’s best fried chicken,” paying respect to what he–and we–think is the city’s first best–Publix. Also on tap, two for 1 Narragansett beer and 10% off the tab of anyone who works in the restaurant biz as long as they have a valid pay stub to prove it.
Sucking Awesome

Starting at 6 p.m. March 26, people dining at The Federal Food, Drink & Provisions, 5132 Biscayne Blvd., are going to suck big time thanks to the restaurant’s new Crawdaddy Tuesdays featuring the Gulf Coast’s finest mudbugs in multiple incarnations. Diners can either order their own crawfish boil with corn, potato, Andouille sausage and onions, or go the Chef Zapata route and try the crawfish ‘n’ grits served Creole style over Anson Mills grits, saffron-scented crawfish fritters with spicy corn remoulade and more. Wash it all down with bottomless bubbles and beer for $20 per person.

Have a Voli Ball
While Pitbull may consider himself Mr. 305, beginning at 9 p.m. Saturday, March 30, his ‘official’ DJ, Chino, will be MR. 954 as he spins a big party at the Living Room at the W Fort Lauderdale, 401 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., along with Voli Vodka in celebration of the barely noticeable arrival of spring in So Flo. Of course, Voli Vodka will be served and we’re sure you may hear a Pitbull song or two. Plus there’s no cover.
Girl Power
Miamians Katrina Campins and Lilia Luciano have teamed up to bring a special screening of Oscar nominated Richard Robbins’ directed film Girl Rising at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 5 at South Beach Stadium 18, 1120 Lincoln Rd. The movie tells the stories of 9 girls from all over the world–each story was written by an author and is narrated by Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Alicia Keys, Salma Hayek, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez and more. Tickets are $10 each with a portion of sales going to girls’ programs through 10×10, a global campaign to educate and empower girls. TO register go to
