Komodo: a three-level, indoor-outdoor, Asian-inspired restaurant that seats about 275 people. This is the description of Miami’s newest hotspot that is not only a restaurant, but a lounge as well!

David Grutman, owner of mega-nightclubs LIV and Story, is the man behind the concept, along with Jeffrey Chodorow, who’s best known locally with his work with China Grill management. The menu is self-described as “Asian cuisine designed to take guests on a culinary journey of the Marco Polo trail.” Translation: expect dishes like dim sum, peking duck, tuna porterhouse, wasabi shrimp and of course, plenty of cocktails.

Grutman isn’t exactly known for doing things low key, and Komodo is no different. The three-story, 17,000-square-foot space features plenty of teak, 40-foot-high red ceilings, and lots of greenery.

Miami Music Week 2016

Once a year, Miami gets even louder (yes, it’s possible) for an entire week. It’s known as Miami Music Week, and it has become one of the world’s greatest migrations for dance-music lovers. MMW officially starts tomorrow, so it’s time to start drawing up your game plan. Below is our official MMW 2016 party and concert guide for each day, straight from the Miami Music Week website.

On The City Slicker’s Instagram I’ll also be posting some under the radar events happening around Miami.

And trust me…there’s way more to MMW than just Ultra!

Who wants to go to a Lil Wayne concert?! Well, I’ve got a great way for you to be able to do that, and also do some community service. How?
 TIDAL, a global music and entertainment platform, has partnered with Lil Wayne to promote community service among college students with the  Social Wave For Change initiative. 
And, here’s how you can enter for a chance to see Lil Wayne live right in your city.
Here’s all you have to do:
Any undergraduate student currently enrolled in a 4 year university can participate from now through February 29th. You have to publicly post a photo or video of you doing a community service act on either on TIDAL‘s Facebook wall or on your own instagram page. You must use the hashtag #TIDALXCHANGE, mention your school name, and tag a friend.
Other participants so far have posted pictures of them doing things like volunteering at animal shelters, donating clothes, and working at food drives. Show your love for your community on the gram and win big. Seems like a win-win situation to me!
A panel of judges selected by TIDAL will review all submissions and choose the finalists – and once the finalists are announced, the general public will vote on the winner. The all participants are eligible for a 3 month subscription to TIDAL, finalists will receive a silent disco event for their school, and the winner will receive…A LIL WAYNE CONCERT NEAR THEIR SCHOOL! (yes, you heard me right!)
Oh, and if you win, you better invite me. Please?
If you have any more questions, comments or concerns regarding the challenge you can read more about it here.
