BCS 2013 Party Guide: Strip Clubs, Rap, Country Music, Alabama, and Notre Dame
Flo Rida and Dierks Bentley. As part of the Orange Bowl Discover Fan Zone. With DJ Irie and others. Noon to 8 p.m. Sunday, January 6. Ocean Drive, between Seventh and Ninth streets, Miami Beach; 305-341-4700; orangebowl.org. Admission is free. College ball's got two soundtracks ... Dance-hop and country pop. So go score a TD, notch a sack, and tailgate till sundown on South Beach with ripped Top 40 rapper Flo Rida and beer-slash-football fanatic Dierks Bentley. Note: There will also be inflatables, Dr. Pepper, a zip line, cheerleaders, and ice-cold Bud Light.
Luke Bryan. As part of the Bud Light Championship Game Day Fan Zone. Presented by Allstate. Monday, January 7. Sun Life Stadium, 2269 NW 199th St., Miami Gardens. Tickets cost $30, not included in the ticket price for the 2013 Discover BCS National Championship Game. Visit orangebowl.org. With just minutes to go till the game starts (and after four days of debauched football-related partying), you're gonna be exhausted, half-drunk, and a lil' sad about the impending end of all this BCS fun. But don't cry 'cause your Notre Dame or 'Bama superfan facepaint will run. Just choke down the tears and sing along with Luke Bryan: "I don't want this night to end! Gonna cuss the morning when it comes!"
And hell ... Who knows? Your team might not even lose.
Rick Ross's BCS 2013 Afterparty. As part of Excess Mondays. 11 p.m. Monday, January 7. Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-695-8411; mansionmiami.com. Ages 21 and up. According to Mansion's official hype, this BCS 2013 afterparty on South Beach is gonna be "the biggest baddest party to celebrate your team's win or drink away your sorrows. Expect lots of hip hop, Hennessy, bling, and excess."
But Rick Ross is a bit more contrite. He simply plans to go "bowlin' like a Bawse!"
