Toward the beginning of Miami DJ Ani Phearce's stint behind the Mac-truck-cab-turned-DJ-booth, a tongue-in-cheek selection of LMFAO's "I'm in Miami Bitch!" was equal parts homage and a playful reminder of the Pawn Shop Lounge's Dade County roots.
Ironic or not, it didn't seem to matter as the song was met with flailing arms, pursed lips, and enthusiastic fist pumps on the dance floor.
Thursday night, after the tornado warnings expired and street cleaning crews swept away fallen palm fronds and random debris from the storms, the much loved formerly Miami-based nightlife haunt, Pawn Shop, made its anticipated return to the club scene with a grand opening at 219 Clematis Street, in the former home of Dr. Feelgood's in West Palm Beach.
