Weekend best party bets: SINfluential at 24K, Slam Nuba, A Taste of Africa and more
Here we are, already in the first week of April, the sun is shining and the weather is sweet. There are a ton of parties happening this weekend in which you can shake your groove thang, post up in the back and nod your head, or just get plain silly and act a fool: Crossroads Theater is the sight of Slam Nuba Grand Slam, Noah Ray celebrates his birthday at Beauty Bar with DJ Soup, Africana Café hosts A Taste of Africa, featuring a night of reggae, dancehall and afro-beat by DJ Cavem, and DJ Bedz ushers in SINfluential, a new industry party at 24K on Sunday night.
The poetic muses of the city are gathering at Crossroad Theater for Slam Nuba Grand Slam, a little slam off that will begin promptly at 7:30. If you'd like a little words mixed in with your vodka/soda or something of the like, this is the place for you. Your host is poet, performer, and "beard enthusiast," Ken Arkind. Cost is $10.
Check for the birthday of Noah Ray at Beauty Bar on Saturday night along with DJ Soup and more for this 3D shin-dig sponsored by Sailor Jerry's rum. Bring your drinking pants and be prepared to birthday rumble. No cover and 21+up is a must.
Over at Africana Café, the sounds will be incredible and the dance floor will most definitely be packed for A Taste of Africa, a night of dance and food and cheap drink specials and sounds by DJ Cavem. Calling all who are into Caribbean, roots, reggae, dancehall and traditional afro-beat. Come get down with beautiful people. Doors at 10pm.
If you're still going like the energizer bunny head on Sunday, head over to 24K to catch DJ Bedz at the launch of SINfluential, the brand new service industry party kicking off this week with a performance by My Body Sings Electric. There's no cover and if you bring your SIN card you'll get specials on drinks and bottle service.
