Fri 8

Crew Love Art Basel

For those who like their art with a side of house music: Crew Love’s fourth annual Art Basel takeover of the Electric Pickle is anchored by a special 45s set from Soul Clap, a performance from PillowTalk and support from locals Gran Moxy and Los Negros.

Katie Stout, “Narcissus”

Little Haiti gallery Nina Johnson exhibits 28-year-old Katie Stout’s colorful, transgressive furniture in “Narcissus.” Known for designs that parody domestic life and femininity, Stout’s latest show tackles notions of adolescence while juxtaposing the spaces most important to personal evolution, such as a tween’s bedroom or a seedy nightclub.

Sat 9

Family Day on Aragon: E.T.

Few family flicks are more entertaining than the story of this friendly alien with remarkably long (and luminous!) digits and an affinity for Reese’s Pieces. Grab your earthly crew and travel to 1982 at a screening of the Steven Spielberg film during Aragon Avenue’s monthly film event.

Celia Cruz: Su Vida, Su Música, Su Leyenda. Celia el Musical!

From Off Broadway to the Little Havana stage, this biomusical celebrates the legacy of Cuba’s Queen of Salsa. It spans the singer’s 60-year career, from her life on the island to her rise to prominence in the States.

Sun 10

Popp’in Paws Doggie Brunch

Bring your pooch to W Fort Lauderdale’s first dog-friendly brunch. Veuve Clicquot provides the bubbles while Stephen Starr serves up a fancy spread. Dogs (and their owners) receive free caricatures from ArtServe. Bonus: a portion of proceeds from the fun event benefit the Humane Society of Broward.

Harlem Globetrotters

Watch the basketball-wielding wizards bounce, spin and shoot as only they can. Known for their remarkable moves and agility, the Globetrotters are a singular mix of entertainment and athleticism.
