New EDM Day Dance Party at McSorley's Motto Is: "F*&k Monday, Spank Sunday"

FastForward is a weekly column documenting the nighttime scene in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach County. It's a weeknight stop at your neighborhood dive; it's a blurry, bass-filled Friday night in the club; it's that one moment in a conversation you hope you'll remember the next morning.

"We wanted something cheeky," says Ed Whitty, a bearded, reflective shades-wearing Irishman from behind the decks this past Sunday at the launch of Spank Sundays. "F**k Monday. Spank Sunday," reads their slogan.

The rooftop dance party at McSorley's newly-renovated and re-branded Tonic Sundeck adds an eclectic, open-format mix of high-energy techno and tech house music to the otherwise blasé rotation of Top 40 tunes dominating Fort Lauderdale Beach.
