Champagne O’Clock

Talking about being at the right place at the right time: If you’re at Green Room at 9 p.m. — right up until 11 p.m. — Saturday, you will be drinking a sizzling elixir — champagne — right next to a giant, metal vagina. That’s for free. You must only know the password. What is it? ArtServe.

This is the “Red Eye” kickoff party. What’s new about this year? New Times sponsors “Red Eye” now. Coming Friday, July 22, it will be one night, as it is every summer, that gives life to every art form. Street artists will graffiti-battle in front of fine-art darlings and people in body paint. You could find sculpturists in the spoken-word room. Do painters dance? Yes. Go. It’s at ArtServe in two weeks.

This Saturday at Green Room, it’s the bachelor party. With the tunes, the dancers, the drinkers, the youth, the older youth, and the youthful old, Green Room is pretty much dominating Fort Lauderdale nightlife culture right now. Even more so on Saturdays — it’s been hosting a weekly art/music event there. Tonight this pretty venue will be full of installations, digital art of the works selected for “Red Eye” will run across the big screen, and the blue-bike artiste will hang one of his famous blue bikes from Green Room’s ceiling (100 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale). It’s free, so remember the password, but that shouldn’t be too tough (hopefully they’ll be a sign nearby) — ArtServe.
