Talking about being at the right place at the
right time: If you're at Green Room Saturday at 9 p.m. -- right up until 11 p.m. -- 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. What's new about this year? New Times
sponsors "Red Eye" now.
This is the "Red Eye" kickoff party. 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.
On this night, the 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. It's free, so remember the password, but that shouldn't be
too tough (hopefully they'll be a sign nearby) -- ArtServe.
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.
Red Eye Kickoff Party. With F**k Yeah, Reckless Dames. 9 p.m. Saturday, July 9 at Green Room, 100 SW Third Ave., Fort
Lauderdale. No cover. Click here.
