Practically a Steal!
Art that’s worth anything is usually sold to anonymous bidders for exorbitant amounts of money only rappers, royalty and felonious athletes earn. Until now. The Hangar Gallery, 2235 NW 2nd Ave., is throwing a legal Art Heist at 8 p.m. Saturday during which time participants are “granted entry into an expertly-curated gallery of over 100 pieces of art valued between $500 and $2,500.” Ok, so it’s not that multi-million dollar Picasso, but still. If you have a ticket to this heist, you get 20 seconds to play Supermarket Sweep with the art that’s before you. Whatever you grab is yours. It will be vicious, it will be fun, and it will be worthy of your $250 in advance, $300 at the door ticket if but for the fact that proceeds from the event will benefit the gallery’s 5th annual back to school event in which they provide brand new clothes, shoes, accessories and prescription eyewear to 2,500 students. To purchase tickets go to stylesaves.org.
Although televised talent shows are going the way of the 8-track, when it comes to karaoke combined with cocktails, the ratings never dwindle – especially when you’re channeling your inner Taylor Swift and think you’re actually good. To prove so or at least to attempt it, Radio Bar, 814 1st. Street, Miami Beach, is hosting Karaoke Sundays from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. with lyrics and music by Kara-o-King, and noise – er, vocals by you aided by two-for-one cocktails and draft beer. There’s one last season of American Idol, folks. Now’s your chance. Ear plugs not included.
It’s no secret that some folks like to party naked – especially on South Beach. So how about half-naked or at least almost naked from 9 p.m. until “late” on Wednesday, June 3 when the Delano Beach Club, 1685 Collins Ave., hosts the first installment of their night swim soiree in conjunction with the hip hotel’s monthly Full Moon hootenanny. The Life is Better in a Bikini party offers body painting, dancers, “in-pool performances,” glow in the dark beach balls and sounds by Nicholas, Reid Waters, and Arlette Carlin. The pool party goes until early in the morning, but you may want to towel off and flee before the sun rises and exposes your shriveled selves. For reservations call 305-924-4071.
Looks like O Cinema Wynwood, 90 NW 29th St., is suffering from heat exhaustion because the feature film at 7 p.m. Saturday is none other than the 1996 Michael Jordan/Bugs Bunny animated mash up known as Space Jam. The flick, part of The Cine Al Fresco series, is free, dog friendly and something light to counter the heaviness of the impending, or already existing, summer humidity. Bring your own blankets and chairs and buy dinner from Vibe 305. For more information go to www.o-cinema.org.
You’ve seen the pictures all over the tabloids, the interwebs and the magazines. Now it’s your chance to be part of the action that has kept World Red Eye in business for 5 years and counting. The premiere Miami photo agency is celebrating its birthday with two parties presented by Moet & Chandon, one starting at 11 p.m. Saturday night at LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., and the other from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at Hyde Beach, 1701 Collins Ave., where an orchestrated aerial photo will capture you and your entourages partying like tabloid stars (your call on which ones) in the pool below.
