Cafe Iguana is a go-to spot for BroCo residents who'd rather save the gas than drive down to the struggling South Beach nightlife scene. The Pembroke Pines nightclub features a steady lineup of some of our favorite artists, a pretty decent happy hour, and regular parties hosted by hip-hop/R&B radio mainstay 103.5 The Beat. It's not Miami, but if you prefer your night out with an occasional trap twist, it’s your best bet for a good time to show off on your Snapchat.
This week, Cafe Iguana is back at it again with another #BFF Fridays, this time hosted by professional Instagram bully, actor, and Grammy Award-winning rapper 50 Cent. Between picking social-media fights with the Game, Meek Mill, and Rick Ross and battling a bankruptcy case, 50 Cent still has time to party. It’s an “Effen” party this Friday, March 25, at Cafe Iguana Pines, and we guarantee this is something worth standing in long lines for.

50 Cent has been in the hip-hop game since ’98, and nothing can stop him — not even nine bullets. He's worked with Jadakiss, Yo Gotti, and Trey Songz, creating a few of your favorite hits, and we can’t forget "Candy Shop" featuring Olivia, a bona fide classic. The rapper not only tops Billboard charts but hits the movie screens as well. His 2005 debut in Get Rich or Die Tryin’ opened the door to more than 50 movie and television roles. He also plays quite the character trolling on Instagram, making headlines in the gossip blogs.
Just because 50 Cent hasn’t dropped much new material lately doesn’t mean he's forgotten how to throw a proper party. His sixth studio album, Street King Immortal, is expected for a summer release. If we're lucky, we might just get treated to a sneak peak. While there are no guarantees the vodka ambassador will hop on the mic for a track or two this Friday, we can assure you his friends will be in the building making the party live. Take two shots of Effen Vodka, because this night will get crazy.
