Real Madrid soccer star James Rodriguez was spotted Tuesday night at E11EVEN Miami. The Colombian soccer star arrived after midnight with a group of friends, asking to sit in a private VIP section away from crowd where they created their own party and enjoyed the night drinking Patron Silver, Johnnie Walker Black and snacking on chicken sliders and pizza until they left around 6 a.m.
On Thursday, the midfielder was spotted, uh, kicking off the holiday weekend Thursday at La Victoria Social Club in the Design District. Rodriguez stopped by to meet some friends and hang with La Victoria’s owner and Colombian nightlife guru, Antonio Turbay, and was overheard saying how much he loves vacationing in Miami with his friends and family.

Two Miami natives, Zasha Shary and Alex Alsina, are starring in Back Stabber, an Amazon TV series which premiered last weekend and whose mission, according to its creator/writer Ryan Zamo, “centers around acceptance, equality, embracing those that are different, and finding who you are.” The openly gay Zamo added, "Knowing many of the victims in Orlando, we hope our show's message can bring a positive impact to the world . . . With each storyline based on real events, I hope viewers find one character that runs parallel to their lives… and realizing that each storyline makes someone feel that way, it will make them think twice before judging others. I know our show can make a difference, and with such relatable stories, we can hopefully drive home the fact that at the end of the day, we are all just humans."
