Things to do because you care, bro. You do, I can see it in your eyes.

Hurricane Help
Thanks to an angry God, pissed off Mother Earth and global warming (God just hugging us closer), a few hurricanes have ripped through our region recently. Luckily we were spared, despite some Capitain Negativos trying to force me to buy batteries - I will not.
However, Ike (appropriately named) punched the crap out of Houston and Galveston and wedged some fish into fences and dug up some graves. Surprisingly, Set Nightclub on Miami Beach is hosting a fundraiser to get some dough for charities in support of these poor bastards. It's on 9/19 from 10-12am. There will be booze and food and stuff. They want a $20 donation, but if you want a table, ya gotta fork over $250.00. RSVP to: diana@theopiumgroup.com. You can also drop of food and clothing at Opium Garden (136 Collins Avenue) 9-15 to 9-19 from 10 am to 8 pm, 9-20 and 9-21 from 12 pm to 8 pm, which is also the former home of many foam parties.

Also on Friday, my main man Barack Obama will be in my neighborhood, Coral Gables! He's speaking at Women's Rally for the Change We Need at the BankUnited Center at University of Miami, 1245 Dauer Dr. at 9:30 a.m.; program begins at 11:45 a.m.

I saw him speak last time he was in town, and he was a true pleasure to witness (and not just because of that dirty picture from the NYT). You gotta see him live. He's great live. Watch him work it.
