    Yes, it is just another Friday, but Miami finds any excuse it can to throw a soiree. There are plenty of places around town who want to turn November 11, 2011 into something festive.
    Get Arty
    The Bakehouse Art Complex hosts its fourth annual Lucky You! art raffle. The special event features original paintings, sculptures, photography, and mixed-media works donated by more than 70 BAC and Miami-based artists to be raffled off that evening, along with additional surprise raffle items. The event will be hosted by NBC Miami’s anchor, Roxanne Vargas, for the second consecutive year.
    Details: 7-11:30 p.m. at Bakehouse Art Complex, 561 NW 32nd St., Miami; Admission is $50, $45 presale.

    Get Balanced
    According to Feng Shui masters, November 11 is the day when the pillars of heaven and earth will be in balance. Head over to the Mandarin Oriental to celebrate at an Asian-inspired soiree with a captivating lion dance, live music, a DJ and tantalizing Asian specialities whipped up by the hotel's culinary team.
    Details: 7 p.m.-10 p.m. at Mandarin Oriental, 500 Brickell Key Dr., Miami; $80 in advance, $95 at the door.
    Get Higher
    No, we are not advocating the use of illegal drugs. How about partying above the throngs on Lincoln Road on the seventh floor of the 1111 Lincoln Building. The Wolfsonian Visionaries hosts 11:11:11, the second annual Visionaries’ fundraiser to benefit The Wolfsonian–Florida International University. The evening, which also marks The Wolfsonian’s 16th anniversary, will feature signature dishes from Miami’s top restaurants and caterers, as well as top shelf spirits from Bacardi. DJ Mauricio Parra will curate the music, and the images of artist Emilio Chapela will be on display in a site-specific installation. The evening will also include a surprise interactive event to mark 11:11pm.
    Details: 7-11:11 p.m. at 1111 Lincoln Road, seventh floor, Miami Beach;Tickets are $150 per person. 305-535-2626.
    Get Social
    Downtown Miami scores another cool destination with the grand opening of speakeasy-style lounge The Bank. Party inside the space that was formerly the Meyer Lansky bank, order from the Prohibition era-themed cocktail menu (Capone Negroni anyone?) and listen to music by DJs Obscene and Paul E. Get there early for a few complimentary drinks (10 p.m.-midnight) and toast to a day that comes once in a millenium.
    Details: 10 p.m. doors open at The Bank, 139 NE First Ave., Miami; 305-373-1515.

    Get Happy
    Area 31 celebrates the magic day by extending its happy hour to 11 p.m. From 11 p.m. to midnight revelers can pay $11 and enjoy an hour-long open bar (nice!). Also the Stoli Elit Martini will be available for $11 (regularly $18).
    Details: 5 p.m.-11 p.m. happy hour, $11 happy hour from 11 p.m.-midnight at Area 31, 270 Biscayne Blvd. Way, Miami; 305-424-5234.

    Speak up!

    The Miami Marlins will also be "launching" themselves that day. So fans of the team will definitely need to take advantage of some of those opportunities Doug listed above.

    It's also Veterans Day. Take one out to lunch, if you can. If money's tight, a simple "thanks for your service" is good.

    Most importantly, just before midnight, Fred Garvin arrives back in town!

    Matt,

    I was at Lowe's (It's a home improvement store) yesterday and I noticed all the gift cards were 10% off for active or former military. So you could buy a $100 bloomingdale's gift card for $90. Or whatever store you want.
