People go crazy during a full moon. Werewolves, lunacy, epileptic fits: all are supposedly brought on by the changes in the celestial body.
The full moon is also known for bringing on the parties. From pagan full moon celebrations to the massive party -- 10,000 to 30,000 people -- on Koh Phangan, Thailand's Haad Rin beach, lunar fetes are known for bringing out party-goers' inner beasts.
S3 last month started a full moon party of its own. Because that party was slammed, it's expanding.
This Sunday from 5 to 10 p.m., the restaurant is hosting its second full moon party. Referred to as "Full Moon Rising," the bash includes Naked Sushi, fire dancers, Brazilian dancers, snake charmers, live music, and a profusion of food and drinks.
The party starts at 5 p.m. with DJ Adam Foster. At 6 p.m., a live drummer, violinist, and saxophonist will join the set. Naked Sushi (sushi served off the body of an almost-naked woman) starts at 7:30 p.m. The entertainment lasts all night.
"We are very excited to celebrate this high-energy monthly party that showcases our beautiful Fort Lauderdale beach under the bright moonlight," said restaurateur Tim Petrillo. The restaurant is expecting a high turnout.
For those looking to drop some cash -- or if you can find someone else to do it -- fire-pit table packages are available this month. For $250, groups up to five people can get bottle service and sushi.
Naked Sushi is all-you-can-eat for $20 per person.
Regular dinner reservations are also accepted.
S3 is located at 505 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-523-7873, or visit s3restaurant.com.
