PAMM Free Community Night: Art as Film ft. “When I Get Home” @ Pérez Art Museum Miami (Miami) – Join PAMM for a special Community Night program “Art as Film.” Featuring a stellar line-up of selections from Miami’s film producing community, a series of shorts will highlight the best of the Miami film scene. Enjoy presentations from Ad Hoc Cinema, Black Lounge Film Series, Coral Gables Art Cinema, Bill Cosford Cinema, FilmGate Miami, Flaming Classics, Miami Film Festival, Media + Archival Studies – MAS, Miami, Oolite Arts, and Third Horizon Film Festival.
The evening will conclude with the exclusive screening of the interdisciplinary performance art film When I Get Home (2019) by visual artist and singer/songwriter Solange Knowles. Directed and edited by Solange Knowles with contributing directors Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori, with artist contributions that include Houston-based Autumn Knight and Robert Pruitt and sculptural work by “Boundless Body”.
When I Get Home is an exploration of origin and spiritual expedition while confronting how much of us we have taken or left behind in our evolutions, and the role of fear in this process. The artist returned to her home state of Texas to explore this theme via an expedition in a futurist rodeo, uplifting the narrative of black cowboys and honoring her Houston lineage through this visual meditation.
Space is limited. First come, first served. RSVP does not guarantee you a seat. Parental discretion for some films is advised.

LOUNGES, BARS & PUBS:
Bodega South Beach (South Beach)
When you first show up at Bodega, you could easily mistake it for a popular neighborhood taqueria. Look around for a guy with an earpiece at the back of the room and tell him your friend sent you, and you might just get directed to a back door that looks like an entrance to a Porta Potti. Pass through here and you’ll enter a graffiti-filled men’s washroom. It’s only after passing through yet another door that you will enter one of South Beach’s hot hidden nightclubs. The mixologists have an extensive menu that relies heavily on “illegal” mezcal, and the DJ keeps the room pumping all through the night. It caters to a friendly, over 21’s crowd and makes for a good introduction to the South Beach scene minus the cover charge and lineups that you’ll find at clubs closer to the beach.
Bodega South Beach – Monday – Sunday from 12PM – 4AM.

Mac’s Club Deuce ♣️ (Miami Beach)
Laid-back ambiance, rustic decor, pool tables & jukebox make this SoBe institution a local hangout. What Mac’s Club Deuce has done in South Beach is nothing short of a miracle. Miami Vice threw its cast party here. Playboy named it one of the best bars in America. And the late Anthony Bourdain said it was one of his favorite spots in the world. In a city that changes like an indecisive chameleon, an island always for sale to the highest bidder, Mac’s joint has remained a pristine, neon-lit paradise untouched by outside forces.

Get some friends together for drinks and checkers, backgammon, or even good ole Connect Four as you enjoy a pleasant mix of music and some of the lowest drink prices around. This off-the-beaten-path bar has the beer-hall vibe of a street corner hook-up joint with a touch of South Beach strut.
Purdy Lounge – Monday – Friday 3PM–5AM. Saturday & Sunday 6PM–5AM.
