THE HOT SPOT
The Re-Birth of LUSH Thursdays

In 1992, Michael Capponi, dubbed "The SoBe Prince" of nightlife, launched a swanky Thursday night party called LUSH at The Butter Club. At the time, South Beach was experiencing a revitalization period and soon would grow into the party scene that it has become today, a trendy mecca for nightlife and music. With much credit to Capponi for reshaping SoBe's nightlife, his infamous Thursday night party would go down as one of the most legendary parties to hit South Beach ever.

Seasons come and go, but nightlife only evolves. In proper cyclical fashion, Capponi is back to his roots that started it all. Revamping LUSH with heavy hitting nightlife partners in tow; Michael Martin Angel, Matt Werner and Brett Weithorn, the rebirth ignites this Thursday with a pre-party in the Bohemian Grove at 10:30 p.m. followed by the debut of the newly renovated WALL Miami in The W Hotel. Catch sounds by DJ Affect along with live instrumentals, collective energy and lights.

Keepin' It Kelsey: Your Weekend Guide

After watching the United States' heartbreaking tie to Slovenia just now in the World Cup, (Edu's goal wasn't even close to being offsides by the way) I'm ready to think about the weekend to get my mind off of soccer. Without further ado, here are my choices to get your weekend off right:

What to Do

Head on over to Mansion tonight to catch a special DJ set by Lil' Jon. Mansion usually attracts a pretty good crowd for their We Rock Hip Hop Fridays and Lil' Jon will likely only help make the party bigger than it usually is. Residents DJ Ideal and DJ Affect will also be contributing their musical stylings throughout the night.
