On the Down Low
Grammy Award-winning, Twitter-ranting DJ Diplo is fresh off his win for Best Dance/Electronic Album and Best Dance Recording and is ready to celebrate on turntables sometime way after 11 p.m. Friday at LIV, 4441 Collins Ave. The superstar spin doctor will “bring his signature beats to keep club goers dancing and ‘getting low’ until dawn,” they say. Tickets start at $60 and are available at http://www.flavorus.com/event/Diplo-LIV/317648. For VIP table reservations, email VIP@LIVnightclub.com
At Fadó Irish Pub, 900 S. Miami Ave., every day and night and vortex in between is St. Patty’s Day, which is fine, but when it really is the actual holiday, the place goes nuts in the best possible way with endless parties that will continue through March 17. A kickoff happy hour at 5 p.m. features food and drink specials and fodder for the following day’s all day, all night bash, but brace and pace yourselves for the actual day–Thursday, March 17, when, starting at 10 a.m., doors will open with full brunch menu and bottomless specials until noon and then at 5 p.m., the place takes over pretty much all of Mary Brickell Village with DJs, food, drink and “shenanigans.” Cover to the outdoor festival is $10. Tickets available here. Dress code? So tempted to write this, sorry, Erin go bra-less.
Hearts, Stars & Open Bars
While spirits aren’t always the solution, an open bar is always a plus when the proceeds from it go to a worthy cause. Take The Little Lighthouse Foundation’s Hearts and Stars Opening party, from 9 p.m. to midnight Friday, March 11 at Nautilus, A Sixty Hotel, 1825 Collins Ave, where a $50 donation gets you premium open bar and a live art installation featuring Eddy Bogaert and Julie Mimran. The poolside party will also have music, of course, and a cool group of people with charity in their glass and on their minds. All proceeds benefit the foundation.

What better night than Sunday to channel your spirit animal, or at the very least your weekend warrior who refuses to raise the white flag and surrender to Monday? At Bond Lounge, 1905 Collins Ave., Paris’s Black Circus will take over from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. every Sunday, “centering around a specific spirit animal and theme so no two weeks are the same.” Those themes will be conveyed via fire eaters, snake tamers, magicians, pantomime clowns (yikes), acrobats and all sorts of eccentric and arty folk who will “challenge nightlife goers to step into a room full of mystery and intrigue, where the only thing to expect is the unexpected.” Other than the inevitable Monday morning hangover, of course.
