Win Free Tickets to 8cho at the Arsht!

Categories: Dance, Deals

You know that a show is gonna work here in Miami when locals instinctively know how to pronounce the name. Take 8cho, for instance -- you know it's pronounced "oh-cho," like Calle Ocho.

8cho is an Argentine production that fuses Cirque du Soleil with tango, electornica with aerial stunts. Yep, there's a reason they call this a "high-flying spectacle." And you can see it for yourself this Thursday -- for free.

Gathr Giveaway: Win Free Movie Screenings at O Cinema!

Categories: Deals, Film and TV

It's hard in Miami for a film fanatic. Yes, things have gotten exponentially better in recent years, with indie theaters like O Cinema showing rare, experimental, and underground movies every week. But audiences in film capitals like New York and Los Angeles still get most movies weeks or even months before they show up on screens in South Florida.

The Gathr Preview Series is out to change all that.

As we reported earlier, Gathr works with major independent film distributors, including Kino-Lorber Films, Music Box Films, and Focus Features, to bring premiere films to the Miami area ahead of many major cities. And to kick-start its efforts, it's giving away three passes to its next screening -- film festival favorite The Attack -- as well as three month long memberships to Gathr, to Cultist readers.

Not since The Motherfucker With the Hat has GableStage mounted a play with a title as controversial - it's right up there with previous GableStage provocations as Fat Pig and Smut. And no, Cock has nothing to do with a rooster.

Win Free VIP Tickets to Haring Miami and the VIP Bombay Sapphire Lounge

Categories: Art, Deals

If you were alive in the 1990s, you've been influenced by the work of artist Keith Haring. The colorful, cartoonish images, addressing issues of sex, war, and what it means to be human, became emblems of a generation.

Next week, 200 of them will go on display in the Design District at Haring Miami, one of the largest collections of Haring's works ever assembled.

Haring's works are reason enough to attend, but there's more to this event than the art. The ever delicious Michelle Bernstein will bring her pop-up concept, Haring Cafe, along with tasty treats created just for the exhibit. And VIP art lovers can also indulge at the VIP Bombay Sapphire Lounge, which will be serving up specialty gin cocktails like the "Haring Thyme" with ginger ale and grapefruit juice.

The VIP treatment at Haring Miami can cost as much as $275 -- not exactly chump change. But we're giving away a pair of VIP tickets to one lucky Cultist reader for free. Read on to find out how to win.

Free admission to Art Wynwood? Sweet.
Can you believe it's been just two months since Art Basel Miami Beach? If you love celebrity spotting, ritzy parties, and nonstop traffic congestion, bad news: you still have the better part of a year to wait.

If you're more of a fan of art fairs, on the other hand, this weekend's looking up. Art Wynwood, the Art Miami spinoff fair that launched last year to test the strength of Miami's art scene outside that one infamous week in December, opens its doors for round two this weekend. If it's anything like its 2012 showing, the tent at Midtown will be packed with locals -- artists, gallerists, and yes, you.

We're giving away two pairs of tickets to Art Wynwood this weekend. Find out how to win after the jump.

Who Wants Free Tickets to the Original Miami Beach Antique Show?

Categories: Deals

The present is over. The future is, like, so last year. All the cool kids these days are thinking retro, man.

Consider the country's most buzzworthy TV shows: Downton Abbey, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire. Most people wouldn't want to live in those worlds -- no iPhones? Pass -- but it does seem like everyone wants this world to look more like them.

The Original Miami Beach Antique Show is bringing thousands of relics from the '50s, '30s, '20s and beyond to the Miami Beach Convention Center this weekend, and we're giving away four pairs of tickets to Cultist readers. With over 900 dealers traveling to MIA from 22 countries, you're sure to find long lost items from nearly any time in history you can imagine. And this year's show features an extra 100 exhibitors in its jewelry ballroom. You may not be able to afford that replica of Lady Mary Crawley's wedding tiara, but you can at least try it on, take a picture, and Instagram it in black and white. It is still 2013, after all.
