New Fort Lauderdale warehouse venue the Collide Factory is opening up its space this evening for the Art = Aid benefit, which kicks off a weekly beer garden event at the space. This time, it's in conjuction with the Miami and Tokyo Beer Tour events.
The event, which continues Saturday, is part-fundraiser, part-beer celebration, and part-art installation with a focus on Japanese culture. A donation center for disaster relief charity Shelterbox.org will be on site.
Included in the visual delights is a cherry blossom tree, which has somehow been constructed entirely out of recycled kegs. Live entertainment courtesy of GhettoMetalMusic and breakdancers, and T-shirt silk-screening also figure into the evening for a good cause.
7 p.m. Friday, March 25 and Saturday, March 26 at The Collide Factory, 541 NW 1st Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Click here.
