This is the Dialect to attend if you haven't gone to any yet -- writingwise, we couldn't put it more simply than that. Go to this event! (If you're a Dialect regular, we'll see ya there.) For this special occasion, it's leaving Brew Urban Cafe coffee shop in downtown Fort Lauderdale and hosting its art/music party in the Peck Sculpture Terrace at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale (1 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Dialect will help celebrate All Together Now's one-year anniversary. All Together Now is a group of adults age 21 to 39 who have a thing for visual arts and design. If you're into art, this is a great group to get involved with -- there are social functions aplenty where you can mingle and talk about things other than the girl who is riding the mechanical bull in the weird country bar you stumbled into. You're going to be at functions where there is art on the walls. Art to take notice of -- art's that not mere decoration. This is what the folks behind Dialect have been doing. They have been showcasing local artists' works for a good amount of time now. And this event is upping the ante: Now there will be live painters (Albina Su, Peter Agardy, and Illian Velasco), street artists, and video artists (Juan Maristany) among the painting and photography (by Luke Jenkins) exhibition. And what's a party without a site-specific sculpture installation? DJs will have you dancing -- we know some of these DJs personally, and they are grand at what they do: Mikey Ramirez, Eric Pamphile, Kent Lawlor, and Adam Foster. There will be a cash bar at Dialect. It runs from 7:30 to 10 p.m. The afterparty will be in the O Lounge at YOLO Restaurant. "Like" All Together Now and Twilight Notes on Facebook for more info.
