Ever since the demise of Miami’s venerable Magnum Lounge, the mainland has been devoid of that campy, torchy touch for which Magnum was so well known. But no more. Going from pop-up to permanent is The Wynwood Piano Bar, returning every Friday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Cafeina Wynwood, 297 NW 23rd St., where classic tunes and sing alongs will be led by Miami pianist Dr. Wayne. Liquid courage is offered in the form of happy hour until 8 p.m., sustenance via $5 menu items, and a post piano martini hour from 11 p.m. to midnight featuring $7 cocktails.
Closing out the Miami Beach Gay Pride Festival is Macy’s MEN MUSIC FASHION event, 9:30 p.m. at Icon, 1235 Washington Ave., featuring fashion by LA-based celeb designer Marco Marco and special performances by Orange is the New Black‘s Taryn Manning and electronic pop artist Rilan. The event is “the world’s first all-male traveling fashion and music interactive,” which is fancy marketing speak, but what matters really is that the event is a fundraiser benefiting the Miami Beach Gay Pride Association and that Macy’s will be hosting a Dior Beauty Style Lab featuring freebies and samples. Tickets for the event are $37.50 for general admission and $41.65 for “front of the line general admission.” To purchase, go to www.wantickets.com/MMF.
The Gale Rooftop, 1690 Collins Ave. definitely offers a lofty view of the city, the ocean and the mania down below, but from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, April 10, the focus will be on the down-to-earthiness taking place on the roof with Local Pop, a community pop-up party featuring food by chef Sarah Myers, and Dolce Italian and beer by Wynwood Brewery. The $25 ticket gets you food, drink, and assorted sensory stimulators including DJ Daniel V, singer Gaby Duran, the Alma Dance Theater and artist Jay Robertson Watson. To get your tix, go to www.eventbrite.com.
