8. RJ Art Junkies and Rumors Present Labor Day Block Party

4 p.m., Sunday, August 31, at Rumors Bar & Grill, 2426 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors. cover? Visit Facebook.

If you're looking for a Labor Day party different than your typical booze fest, then this event is for you! Rumors Bar & Grill joins forces with Recycled Jude to bring you a more cultured booze fest complete with live art, craft pop up shops, and, of course, $2.50 mimosas and bloody Marys. DJ Joshua Atom will dominate the outside stage while you browse eyeing some art.

7. Second Annual Salvagerz Hot Rod and Kustom Extravaganza

3 p.m., Saturday, August 31, at Salvagerz Compound, 16932 W. Mayfair Dr., Loxahatchee. $5 cover. Visit Facebook.

This event is for those who love a hot rod and fast engine (we're referring to cars, you perverts). West Palm hosts the Second Annual Salvagerz Hot Rod and Kustom Extravaganza, a party full of cars, bikes, music, and burlesque.

The Butchers, Skinny Jimmy and the Stingrays, and the Wholetones play and Morgan La Rue and the Shimmy Shake Revue will bring the sexy. You can chow down on gourmet hot dog food trucks as you sip some booze from a flask. This event is BYOB.

And though it is considered a family friendly event, the Facebook page requests that the kids be out by 9 p.m. We're going to take a wild guess and say that this is probably when the burlesque ladies make their appearance.

6. Respectable Street's Cheesy '90s Homecoming

9 p.m., Sunday, August 31, at Respectable Street. 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Visit Facebook.

Overalls, scrunchies, Ty Beenie Babies, and a love for boy bands are all things that will go over well at Respectable Street's cheesy '90s homecoming this weekend.

Didn't win homecoming king or queen at your high school? The best dressed at this blowout will be awarded prizes and crowned, so you definitely have a chance to make up for your sorry ass teenage years.

If you don't win, drown your sorrows in $3 Zima Shots. And yes, this is the perfect time to execute your version of Spice Girls' "Wannabe" or Blind Melon's "No Rain."
