5. Northern Soul Dance Party
9 p.m., Saturday, November 1, at Blue Front, 1132 N. Dixie Hwy., Lake Worth. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Soul never dies. It lives in the dancing shoes of those who twirl to the sounds of Jerry Butler in homes and hidden dance spots worldwide.
In fact, a new Northern soul scene is flourishing right here at Lake Worth's Blue Front Bar-B-Que. The monthly dance party features limited release 45s of the '60s DJed by three fans of the genre. The kitchen stays open till 5 a.m., so after you sweat like James Brown, you can curb your hangover with some drunchies.
4. Artist Opening at The Brewhouse Gallery
6 p.m., Thursday, October 30, at the Brewhouse Gallery, 720 Park Ave., Lake Park. Visit Facebook.
Brewhouse Gallery's monthly celebration of resident artists takes place the last Thursday of each month. Dedicated to showcasing local artists, there will be a meet and greet, creative talks, complementary hors d'oeuvres, wine tasting, and more. Yes, you read that right -- free hors d'oeuvres and wine tasting.
And as R. Kelly said many times, "After the show it's the after-party," a very important element of any good night out. In this case, the after-party is an open mic night with live, local music. Stash away some free appetizers so you can simultaneously jam out and have some munches to chew on later.
