Everything’s Better With Coffee

Art shows always sound like good ideas, but more often than not, they end up with you standing awkwardly in front of an incomprehensible work of “art” in a painfully pretentious gallery sipping free wine from a plastic cup. Art is not created in a vacuum and shouldn’t be viewed in one either. Every month, Brew Urban Cafe (209 SE Second Ave., Fort Lauderdale) plays host to “Dialect,” a free art and music event presented by Twilight Notes and Freedom Art. Thursday’s event will showcase the artists’ love of music through works inspired by sound. From 8 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., lounge in coffee-house comfort and take in the tunes provided by Twilight Notes’ DJs, Eric Pamphile, and JAMS (Esoteric and Damask) while pondering the works of local artists Joseph Baum, Greg Dubois, Sarah Duggan, Luzalma Gonzalez, Erik Michael K, and Jose E. Lopez. If you’re already a Brew or “Dialect” regular, make sure to come by this month to say farewell to longtime Brew Urban Cafe Manager Stephen Gundlach. Visit twilightnotes.com, or call Brew Urban Cafe at 954-523-7191.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
