Calle Ocho, Rony Seikaly, and a pop-up train station

  • Rony Seikaly is spinning so kids become less poor, at the Little Lighthouse Foundation’s Hearts and Stars fundraiser Saturday. You can also peep the new Range Rover, a 156ft yacht, and half a mil worth of bling. Buy your first ticket to see Rony Seikaly since 1994
  • Perhaps the world’s largest collection of girls in short spandex shorts and guys selling arepas will descend on Calle Ocho, Miami’s annual 23-block-long celebration, along SW 8th Street in Little Havana this Sunday. Vayate!
  • The Purple Line mocks up a real live train station in Midtown, which is as close as Miami'll get to public transportation. Talib Kweli's playing at next-door The Stage Saturday night -- listen from the Purple or get discounted admission. See what else a fake train station might have.
  • The Shore Club is bringing back the classic Shore Thing Pool Party this Sunday with DJ Irie, DJ Mateo Difontaine, and DJ Gunars poolside, plus a brunch and bottomless mimosas at Terrazza. The whole brunch menu is here
