So - youve been working hard all week. You've clocked long, hard hours with a single, small light at the end of that tunnel. Friday. The Weekend. Its about time youve been rewarded for working your hardest and that time has come. Obviously, all of you have your own agenda and a semi-plan worked out for what you want to do this weekend - but just in case you have a block of time that has nothing planned for it and you dont know whats going on around you - here are just a few of my suggestions that could fit perfectly into your schedule and keep you going for the rest of the weekend, at least until Monday ...   Friday -     The Riddle of You By Sebastian Del Marmol Tom Shadyac, director of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Nutty Professor, Liar Liar, Bruce Almighty, and a bunch of other Hollywood megahits, got a little introspective after a 2007 cycling accident that almost left him permanently incapacitated. When he finally recovered, he became unsatisfied even with his highly satisfactory life. He dumped much of his fortune and moved to a trailer park. And though he eventually went…
Miami loves boob jobs.   And honestly, if we here at Crossfade had our way, each and every Dade County resident -- men, women, and all those in between -- would own their own perfectly shaped pair of C-cup (or larger) implants. Just imagine what a wonderful world it would be if all god's creatures had a big beautiful set of fake breasts.   Well, we will get a little closer to that dream tonight when Mokai, Empire Events, and Ransom Mondays give "one lucky lady ... a FREE Silicone Breast Augmentation by Dr. [Sam] Gershenbaum."   Working out of the Aventura Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Hair Restoration, Doc Gershenbaum doesn't just deal with breast augmentation. Blending "'art' and 'science,'" he's also a wizard of liposculpture, butt work, and vagina design!   Tonight, however, Dr. G's only giving the gift of better boobies. And nothing else. So if you wanna enhance your chest (and contribute to Crossfade's dream of a wonderful world), text "BOOB" to 38714. Otherwise, call the Aventura Center hotline at 305-933-1838 to schedule the labia sculpting procedure that'll make your private parts just as perfectly shaped as your big beautiful set of fake breasts. Boob It!,…

It's not uncommon for so-called fans to dismiss a band's latest offering in favor of the early work that first hooked them. And it seems that nowhere is that kind of I-liked-them-when snobbery more prevalent than in the world of rock music. But frankly, Incubus couldn't give a damn.   On each and every one of its releases, this rock crew has fearlessly switched gears. Plenty of people who grabbed hold of the early funk-metal fest Fungus Amongus in 1995 were probably scratching their heads as they listened to 1997's less visceral yet infinitely more progressive S.C.I.E.N.C.E. And this pattern of perpetual reinvention has repeated itself, over and over, from 1999's Make Yourself through 2001's Morning View, 2004's A Crow Left of the Murder, and 2006's Light Grenades.   So it's really no surprise that recently released album If Not Now, When? proves to be the band's most ballsy growth spurt yet. Of course, the outfit makes no apologies for this newest change of direction. On the contrary, as drummer Jose Pasillas recently told New Times, Incubus is simply intent on being real.   New Times: Your new album, If Not Now, When?, is very different from anything Incubus has…
You've seen the commercials for Stella Artois. A bartender pours a perfect glass of beer, measures the head, then takes a knife and slices away the excess foam to create an object of beauty. This is beer porn at its finest.   Turns out, pouring the perfect pint is both art form and competition. On October 7, finalists from around the country will converge on Washington D.C. for the 2011 World Draught Masters Competition.   It is there, that seven regional winners will compete in the nine-step process that results in a picture perfect pour. Miami has been chosen as one of the cities to hold a regional contest. This Friday at Brickell Irish Pub from 8 p.m. to midnight, bartenders from around south Florida will compete to see who has what it takes to move on to the finals.       Source - Miami New Times

With so many celebrity cookbooks, online recipe sites and cooking shows, it's pretty easy to be a good cook. You know what's really difficult? Being a truly lousy cook. The kind that burns water and thinks a Kraft Macaroni & Cheese dinner requires a stint at the CIA.   There's a true talent in being a really bad cook. If you think you're the worst cook in the world, Worst Cooks in America is looking for you.   Hosted by Bobby Flay and Anne Burrell, Food Network's Worst Cooks in America takes 16 of the most pathetic creatures to kitchen "boot camp" to try to bully some kitchen skills into them. The winner will not only take away some mad culinary skills, but they'll also win $25,000 (which buys a lot of Pepto-Bismol). If you think you have what it takes to be on the show (which, ironically, means you don't have what it takes to be a chef), the casting directors want to see you ... in Miami!   Send an email to worstcooks@theconlincompany.com with the following information: 1) Name,   2) Age, Hometown, Occupation (we hope it's not "chef"), Contact phone number and a recent photo.   3)…
Identity Festival organizers promised to reschedule last week's canceled Miami show and they've kept their word. The festival is set to try again on September 30 at the Klipsch Amphitheater at Bayfront Park.   Unfortunately, if you were hoping to check out Cut Copy's performance at Grand Central, it looks like you're going to have to make a choice. Crossfade is still awaiting word from organizers about the confirmed acts scheduled to perform on the new date. If you held on to your ticket for August 25, it will be honored at the gate. However, if you asked for a refund or foolishly never bought a ticket, they will be on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. via livenation.com.   Full statement from LiveNation below:   The IDentity Festival presented by Skull Candy show originally scheduled for August 25th at the Klipsch Amphitheatre at Bayfront Park in Miami will now be held on Friday, September 30th. Tickets for the original date will be honored at the door. Original tickets that were issued for the Miami show and redeemed at the Tampa date on Wednesday, August 24th are no longer valid for the new Miami show date on September 30th. Tickets for…

As federally mandated by the United States government, the first Monday of every September is set aside for the celebration of the unionized labor movement and all of the lives lost in the workforce's never-ending war with The Man.   Of course, we're talking about Labor Day. And all across the land, every citizen who typically spends nine hours out of every 24 slaving away like a drunk worker bee locked up in the hive on punitive work detail will get to enjoy some booze, barbecue, and a break from the job. The only poor Americans who've gotta punch the clock Labor Day are the rappers, the strippers, the bartenders, the waiters, and the professional party people. And unfortunately, we here at Crossfade fall into that last category. We are in the business of bingeing and balling. So we will be forced to spend our entire holiday weekend in the club, getting lapdances, boozing it up, and chainsmoking Philly Blunts with Young Money, Uncle Luke, Gucci Mane, and King of Diamonds. Tyga and the Young Money Crew. Friday, September 2, 11 p.m., The Cove ,10730 NW 25th St., Miami; 305-594-3717; Tickets cost $25 to $100 via wantickets.com. Sorry, ballers. You…
South Florida has plenty of sexy to go around -- about that we are all very clear. Every hostess, waitress and personal trainer in Miami has already invested in her double Ds and no self-respecting trophy wife would push her BugaBoo through Aventura without making sure the pudge below her navel has been yoga-ed out of existence. What to do with all that sexy, ladies? Pack your bags and head to Orlando because Playboy is hosting a casting call for the entire state of La Florida and we all know where most of the pretty is (hint, it ain't in Fort Myers). The location of the casting call will be revealed only to those who sign up on the Playboy website (www.playboycastingcalls.com) and are available to meet September 7 or 8 in Orlando. Good luck, South Florida. Source : www.miami.com

The Brisbane Arcades sits demurely, legs folded at the ankles, in the heart of the Queen Street Mall, surrounded by hipper, younger shops and skirted with rowdy outdoor pubs. Yet the grand old dame of the city’s retail heart remains unruffled; like Coco Chanel, she knows that fashion fades, but that style, born of good taste, lasts forever. So it was with the same spirit the arcade’s prominent merchants paraded their wares at the Brisbane Fashion Festival last night. Pia du Pradal turned out yet another flawlessly tailored range of suits and dresses in an array of colours in keeping with the mode’s shift back to the technicoloured days of late last century – a retrospective perspective echoed, albeit with a more youthful step, in Deanne Maiocchi’s picnic and Cadillac ready collection. Perpendicular to Pradal’s polished, ladies-who-lunch ensembles was the deconstructed chic of Julie Tengdahl’s new season collection, delivered to the beat of tribal drums and feathered with shades shared with the paradise birds of New Guinea. Rounding off the juncture was Brad Webb’s stridently bridal Darb Couture collection which had all the puff and frou and floor sweeping elegance Brisbane has come to expect from one of its favourite…

This weekend is like the Art Basel of bikinis. It's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, when all the New York fashionista folk come to Miami and showcase next year's swim lines and help a company sell cars. But say you have a normal job, an eating disorder, an aversion to corporate sponsorship, or can only afford the bathing suits sold at Costco. It's cool. This weekend has plenty for you to do too. In fact, this weekend boasts about three times more worthwhile events than the past two weeks. A Brazilian opens an exhibit of participatory art at Miami Art Museum, there's plenty of theaterics on Miami's stages, and then there's, wait for it, Sade. Friday Mod Swim: If you're not clutching a VIP access badge, then you probably won't get into the myriad of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim shows. For the common people, there are a few just-as-good runways show like Mod at the Sagamore Hotel. It starts tonight and runs through Sunday. Sade: This is no ordinary love. No ordinary love. This is Sade love, and it's coming to Broward's BankAtlantic Center. See Jane Run!: Actors' Playhouse opens See Jane Run!, a funny/touching look at what it feels like…
