The Kill Your Idol version
is an exception to the cheese. Probably most importantly, women drink free all night. That's free, on the usual wells and beers, no catch, no buy-one requirements, no time cap. Got that?

The official party kicks off at 11 p.m.
Kill Your Idol. 222 Espanola Way, Miami Beach. Age 21 and up. 305-534-1009
