Bey Day

We're gonna let you finish, Labor Day, but Sunday, September 3rd is going to be an early birthday celebration of the flawless one, Queen Bey. We're celebrating a day early because you ain't got no work on Monday. No she won't be here, but that doesn't mean we won't be putting on a jam that would make Yoncé proud. So practice your "Single Ladies" moves and let's get "Drunk in Love" with a night all things Sasha Fierce. Come on everyone, let's get in "Formation." 

DJ mixing all things Beyoncé inspired. From solo hits to Destiny's Child classics all mixed with the Queen's favorite artists and contemporaries. 

$2 Birthday Cake shots all night.

Midnight birthday cake candles blowout!

Special Beyoncé themed photobooth w/ props!

More fun and surprises to be announced....

Cinco De Mayo - All Weekend Long

to May 7

Cinco De Mayo - All Weekend Long

Cinco de Mayo celebrates an underdog Mexican army's victory over the French in 1862. But right here In Los Estados Unidos, its really just another example of our ability to turn a celebration into an excuse to drink. Of that, we too are guilty - This time around, we're even providing the free mustache swag. 

But, with a name like Play, we've never taken much of anything too seriously. So like us, apologize beforehand, and let the good times roll. 

We kick the party off on Thursday, May 4th with "Pinatas & Coronas." For just one dollar extra, top your Corona off with a shot of tequila. Just ask for your Corona, "fully loaded." And with a performance of a karaoke song, take a swing at the Pinata. It'll be filled with lots of great stuff and cold hard cash! 

Friday, May 5
Mustache Night
All the single folks will be given a mustache. Give your mustache away and we'll give the person you give it to a free drink when you get your drink!

Saturday, May 6
Welcome to Miami
Featuring DJ Sin Fin! This Miami style dance party will be en fuego + $5 premium margaritas, shots and more! 

As always, free admission and all events and contests are free to play.
