SAVE Dade 20th Annual Halloween Ball: Once Upon a Midnight Scary 10/25/14

This year’s event will be held at Downtown Miami’s spectacular Historic Alfred I. Dupont Building, truly one of South Florida’s premiere event spaces.

Sponsor Bacardi will supply their repertoire of brands including Grey Goose and Bombay Sapphire at double the bars of last year’s event (to help keep lines short — we heard your requests!). Prices at cash bars will range from $4 for nonalcoholic beverages, to $6 for well drinks or Hatuey Beer, and $8 for drinks mixed with top-shelf spirits.

On top of it all, this year’s VIP section will be set up inside the building’s spooky vacant bank vault complete with OPEN BAR, and for everyone else there will be undead “bank tellers” serving up your favorite drinks! AND, TRACY YOUNG is back by popular demand this year spinning your favorite dance and electronic tunes with the assist from retro-flavored DJ Bill James along with three DJs new to the Halloween Ball: Alex Ramos, Carlos Rojas, and Maximus 3000!

For your convenience, we are happy to offer valet parking at the event for $15. If the valet isn’t for you, there are parking lots for $5-$7 surrounding the venue. And of course, if you want to skip driving altogether, the event is located very close to Metrorail and Metromover connections (but remember, the Metro stops running at midnight and doesn’t reopen til 5AM — so if you come this way, plan to get a ride home!).

In 2014 we’ve given it all for equality, and that goes for the Halloween Ball, too. We’ve revamped and reloaded — and the only thing we’re missing to make the night truly terrifying is YOU!

Where To Be: 16/10 – 23/10

Here at In The Loop, we know there are always places to be and events to attend. Each Friday, we feature a special “where to be” post on our blog to make sure every day of the week has some sort of cultural event to check out. We hope that you all can come out into the community and learn and commemorate some influential people and events around Miami! Have something coming up that you’d like to see here?

New Belgium Brewing’s 2014 Clips Beer and Film Tour 10/24/14

New Belgium Brewing’s annual Clips Beer & Film Tour is coming to Miami for the first time. Clips offers a venue where guests can try New Belgium’s most esoteric beer offerings, while watching short films created by New Belgium fans. Many of New Belgium’s Lips of Faith beers can be hard to come by and Clips offers the best way to try them. Up to 17 varieties from Lips of Faith to brewery classics will be on tap.

This beer-toting, film-traveling, nonprofit-benefiting show is going coast-to-coast hitting 21 cities in its fifth year with 100 percent of the proceeds from beer sales benefiting local nonprofits. Since its inception in 2010, Clips has raised close to $400,000 for nonprofits nationwide. Clips is a fundraiser for Urban Oasis Project – outside alcohol is not permitted.

New Belgium selects approximately 20 short films for the tour each season. All selected filmmakers for the 2014 tour receive a trophy-worthy beer in a custom screen-printed bottle, made exclusively for the winning submissions. This year, the chosen films include a banana with an attitude, ultra marathoners running with stubborn animals, neon spandex and much, much more! It’s a diverse and highly entertaining line-up with something for everyone.

“Clips is a great place to come together with friends and relax,” said Christie Catania, Clips National Special Events Manager. “It is an outdoor evening gathering, where you can connect with friends, watch films and enjoy good beers. One-hundred percent of proceeds from beer sales benefits your local nonprofit.”

Other tips:
Food is welcome; alcohol is not (leave that to us).
Bring low chairs or blankets – or lounge on the grass.
Entire families are welcome.
Bring your I.D. if you plan to sample beers!
Bring a water bottle – New Belgium gives away water for free.
Dogs are welcomed on a leash, under control, and by their owner’s side.
Please walk, ride a bike, carpool, or take public transportation!
