Page 2 of 2

Saturday, January 26

2 to 11 p.m. FATVillage, NW Fifth Street, Fort Lauderdale. Admission is free.

Last year's Build a Better Block event was such a success, that the creative team behind it -- Cadence Living, a local landscape architecture firm -- decided to make a recurring biannual event. Thus, Revel on the Block was born.

By using art installments to re-imagine human habitats, they pull back the smog and misery and reveal a livable, friendly landscape; people walking where cars once drove, art hanging on once empty walls.

7 p.m. to midnight. The Bubble, 810 NE Fourth Ave., Fort Lauderdale. $10

According to the bio on Christopher Ian Macfarlane's blog page,, the young 
artist is just "a dude who likes to make art." Haunted Mirror Forrest marks Macfarlane's debut exhibition and is a culmination of a lifetime spent mastering his craft. Suede Dudes, Pocket of Lollipops, Kenny Millions, and many more bands will be providing the musical delight.

You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
