Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Can't we all just get along? With cheap beer, yes.

SUN 6/29

The threat of an early Monday morning is enough to chase most people to bed on Sunday night. But for those aggressive night owls brave enough to venture out on the holiest of days and push through the sweaty throngs of trendy downtown clubgoers, there is a place for you. Tavern 213 (213 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale) hosts a Free Punk Rock Nightevery Sunday. It's an eclectic event that's full of spilled beer, bodily fluids, and other assorted surprises. Trapped by Mormons, South Florida's premier promoters of loud; the Livid Kittens; and Skinny, Blonde and Good Looking play this Sunday. And there's always next weekend to catch local rockers strutting their stuff in Tavern's narrow confines while the hardcore devotees flail wildly in the pit. Call 954-463-6213. -- Tim Moffatt

Hatred as Art

A timely exhibit hits South Florida

The Jewish Museum of Florida's new exhibit, The Art of Hatred, might sound awfully timely. But it actually focuses on a larger spectrum of images, both historical and current. From Civil War propaganda to anti-Semitism in 1940s Europe to the influx of hate messages that hit the Internet after 9/11, this exhibit aims to educate and enlighten people to the origins of such hatred and intolerance. It features more than 185 images, from the 13th century to the present, and also includes artifacts such as skinhead jackets, T-shirts, and contemporary video of Ku Klux Klan meetings. Visit this powerful exhibit at the Cornell Museum of Art and History (51 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach) through September 19. Call 561-243-7922. -- Audra Schroeder

FRI 6/27

Just Imagine It

The Museum of Contemporary Art (770 NE 125th St., North Miami) may be just a touch over the Miami-Dade County line, but to the typical Browardite, that difference is negligible. Easily reached from I-95, the museum boasts one of the most eclectic permanent collections of contemporary art. The place shows off this varied assortment beginning Friday in its "Imagine: Selections from the Permanent Collections" exhibit. Many of the works on display are recent acquisitions, including art by Donald Lipski, Yoko Ono, and Nam June Paik. "Imagine" continues through August 31. Museum hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free for members, $5 for adults, and $3 for seniors and students. Call 305-893-6211. -- Dan Sweeney
