Welcome Back, Pussycat

The Delano revives an epic party from the days of Crockett & Tubbs


Let’s assume you missed 1980s Miami Beach, when a mysterious white powder lined the streets and the sleeves on your teal blazer were always pushed up.

Luckily you’ve got a chance to relive it. FDR at Delano is reincarnating a party that was the party; the awesomely-named Fat Black Pussycat.

Just like back then, FDR will serve 40s and fried chicken as DJs handle the music.

Maybe the best part? The whole thing is a benefit for Miami Beach nightclub godfather Mark Leventhal, who has a truckload of medical bills from a recent illness. A minimum $20 donation earns you an open bar from 10p to midnight.

Leventhal counts among his friends old-school South Beach scenesters and today’s party people, so expect the FDR to get just as wild as the old days, when models and rock stars snuck in the back door of the Fat Black Pussycat. The party's original dancers are even flying in for the fun.

Finally, your chance to break out that teal blazer.
