With Liberty & Cheap Drinks for All
Off the beaten path bastion of all things boozy, Sweet Liberty, 237 20th St., has revamped its happy hour menu to offer some stellar specials every single day of the week. From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., wash down 75 cent oysters with $5 glasses of rosé, or $5 cocktails including the classic Daiquiri, the Moscow Mule, the Aperol Spritz, and the freshest, spring beer, Stiegl Radler. Five bucks a beverage on Miami Beach is practically colonial America prices. Sweet Liberty indeed!
If commitment phobic men and women were stores, restaurants or bars, they’d be pop-ups, setting up shop briefly and then packing up when it’s not you, it’s me, just like NOBE67, a trendy threads shop emerging in Wynwood at The White Dot Gallery, 2245 NW 2nd Ave. from April 22 through May 8. You can find over 20 up and coming designers as well as some of the more recognizable names in, they say, “a range of prices.” Whether you feel like shopping or not, the store-er, pop-up is having a big grand opening party from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, April 22 featuring sounds by DJ YSL, art by Van Alpert and Camilo Rios, and cocktails by yet another pop-up, the Baby Jane Pop Up Bar. To RSVP, email Delfina@carmapr.com.
While some economists may doubt music streaming service Pandora’s promise that it will triple its annual revenue to a whopping $4 billion by 2020, especially when its CEO abruptly left, others couldn’t care less as long as that service offers free and open to the public events such as the one at 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 26 at the ICE Palace Film Studios, 1400 N. Miami Ave., featuring performances by Latin Grammy nominated, chart topping reggaeton artists Yandel and Gadiel. According to Pandora, its listeners spent 2 billion hours jamming to Latin music and Yandel has over 232 million spins on the service. That’s neither small shakes nor $4 billion–yet.

Hide on Fleek
Whether you celebrate Passover or not, Blue Collar’s Danny Serfer is inviting the entire city of Miami to help celebrate the story of the Jewish peoples’ Exodus with the 2016 Blue Collar Matzo Chase, in which Serfer and his staff are hiding cardboard matzos all over town. You go and find ’em and win prizes. On the morning of Monday, April 25, Blue Collar will tweet out a photo and riddle to help those searching for the afikoman–three matzos traditionally set aside and hidden during Seders usually to be found by competitive kids looking for cash prizes. Townsfolk who find Serfer’s matzos should reply to @BlueCollarMiami on Twitter with a unique hashtag written on the matzo and a photo of themselves with the location. Prizes will include a $50 gift card (a far cry from the few bucks some kids get ahem) to Blue Collar, t-shirts and Heroes of the Torah commemorative glassware. “As a kid, finding the afikomen is what kept Passover interesting,” Serfer says. “I have two sisters who always beat me to it. This time, I’m hiding the matzo and not just in the living room.”
Making it Drizzle
While some of us, ahem, find Drake to be the hip hop equivalent of Wilmer Valderrama, scratching our heads on their inexplicable appeals, the bottom line is people love ’em and even throw traveling parties dedicated to them such as So Far Gone, a music celebration dedicated to none other than Drake, setting up shop from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Friday, April 22 at Rec Room, 1690 Collins Ave. The Philly-originated soiree will present host Dirty South Joe along with DJs Gun$ Garcia and Magglezzz, who will spin all the former Degrassi Jr. High star’s hits. There is no cover, but get there early, because, as we said while scratching our heads, Drizzy as they call him, packs in a crowd whether or not he is even there (he won’t be).
