'Tis the season, ya'll! And the Opium Group wants you to open your wallets, er, for charity of course! It goes without saying, we are all hurting a bit financially this season, but there still are a lot people worse off than you. So if aren't aware already of all the toy drives going on this weekend, you can start tonight at Mansion where you can drop off an unwrapped toy for Toy For Tots and receive complimentary admission and Absolut open bar from 11 p.m. to midnight (both a rarity for Mansion). Spam All-Stars will performing live along with DJ Konflikt and Ron Luna.
Just in case in you are in the giving mood but can't make it out tonight, you can drop off toys at Opium Group's marketing office at 136 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, until Friday, December 19.
Over at Louis at the Gansevoort South, Christmas is coming early for Common fans thanks to Pepsi, where he will be hosting a listening party for his latest album Universal Music Control. Twilite Tone along with CrossFade favorite, Danny Daze, will be on the decks.
