Unearthly Pleasures

The Abrahamic God may discriminate between the blessed and the damned, but the Steel Jackhammer Club and Video Lounge will be making no such distinction during its fifth anniversary celebration, dubbed “Saints and Sinners” (1951 NE Ninth Ave., Fort Lauderdale). The genesis story leading up to this celebration is as complicated as any of the Bible’s “begot” bacchanals: a relocation hybrid resulting from two once-separate clubs, Steel and the Jackhammer. But never mind the taxonomy. Much more important is the three-day wassail starting up high in Heaven-themed Friday (that’s when the divine Erika Norell performs for revelers as they down free drinks from 9-11 p.m.), plunging deep down into Hell on Saturday (when super-porn-star Arpad Miklos dances to the tunes of world-famous DJ Tony Moran), and concluding Sunday (in Purgatory, perhaps?), on Jackhammer’s official birthday. The club caters to gays, but its owners proclaim all are welcome. Doors open at 9 p.m. and there’s no cover before 11 p.m. Call 954-522-9985, or visit www.steelftl.com.
