It Always Goes Down Smooth

“There are two rules to remember if you wanna have a good time. Rule number one, never run out of Colt 45. Rule number two — never forget rule number one.” Damn you, Billy Dee Williams, for implanting such wisdom in our heads at such early ages. How could anyone resist the siren call of Lando Calrissian? We figure well-known Miami graffiti artist Aholsniffsglue felt the same way. Not only did he compete in a recent Colt 45 design contest (under the incredible pseudonym Alouishous San Gomma), but now he’s hosting Coltoberfest 305, an only—in-Miami mash-up of music and art being held at — where else? — Churchill’s (5501 NE Second Ave., Miami). The 32-ounce art show is sponsored by Colt 45 and Vice Magazine, so you should already know what you’re getting into. Come for the more cold Colts than you can guzzle, and check out the miniature works of art painted on Colt 45 quarts by the likes of Ahol, 131Projects, Typoe, Griz, and many of the other artists who’ve been making their names known on walls in Wynwood. A $5 donation to the recently-vandalized Sweat Records is all you need to make this dream come alive. Fun starts at 9 tonight. Call 305 757 1807, or visit

You can earn the evening of malt liquor guzzling by getting sweaty during the sunshiny hours at yet another sponsored event — Fujifilm’s hosting Z Spot Now, a DJ skateboarding throwdown at M.I.A Skatepark (1850 NW 84 Ave., Suite 108, Doral). DJ Z-Trip provides the sounds, Habitat Skate Crew provides the tricks, and you provide the OMG’s. Admission is free, but limited, so you gotta RSVP. Visit to sign up, and for a list of celeb skaters expected to appear.
