This week on #TheOtherSideOfTheBridge, we are bringing to you our Labor Day Edition. As we all know, Miami is known for its litty parties, especially for special holidays and events. Miami ALWAYS does it big. Because, c’mon- this is MIAMI-DADE COUNTY. We go hard or we go home. Labor Day weekend is NO exception. Now, I know you are all probably tired of the same ol same ol when it comes to going out and partying for special occasions, but we have some different venues for you to visit. Usually, this is the point where bloggers tell you about allllll the “fun,” “exciting,” “must be there” events happening on SoBe, but we have some venues you can visit on #TheOtherSideOfTheBridge. These are events you can find in Wynwood, Overtown, and Downtown. They may seem like secondary locations to turn up and have some fun, but I promise they will deliver the same punch of fun that any event on South Beach will.
Day La Soul Day Party
SocialXchange presents this epic day party. The Day La Soul day party will be one to remember. It will be held at the E11even Rooftop, located at 29 NE 11 ST, in Miami’s historic Overtown on Saturday, September 3. Overtown, featured on a previous blog on #TheOtherSideOfTheBridge, is one of Miami’s oldest and most known neighborhoods. E11even Rooftop’s popularity grows with each passing year. This day party is sure to be a good one. Plus, SocialXchange has as history of throwing EPIC events. Oh yea! The event will start at 6:30pm until whenever the good folk at E11even Rooftop kick everyone out. Once again, the party starts at 6:30pm. Not 6:45. Not 7:30. Not 8:00, but SIX THIRTY POST MERIDIEM.

Quick history lesson on Labor Day: According to the United States Department of Labor, ” [Labor Day] is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” It may not be an economic one, but it would definitely be a social achievement for y’all to show up on time.
That’s it for this week on #TheOtherSideOfTheBridge !
