Tonight at 6 pm, C&I Studios in the FAT Village in Fort Lauderdale will kick off its new night, simply titled BBQ at C&I Studios - a free, monthly BYOB event featuring burgers and hot dogs (including vegan options), along with "the largest game of beer pong ever."

The seven-year-old DIY media and production company has been making a name for itself in the FAT Village neighborhood since moving into the 4,000-square-foot warehouse space in 2011 with its themed Art Walk events, $1 movie nights, and Live at C&I mini music festivals. The events draw crowds of mixed ages and styles -- "anyone who is tired of going to Vibe and Yolo and is starving for something real," says C&I Executive Director Josh Miller.

Count on meeting new people and mingling with Fort Lauderdale's growing community of creative types outside while enjoying the free grub, hot off C&I's brand new grill. Event Manager Cory Bost will be giving away C&I t-shirts to beer pong winners.

With new creatively-focused businesses and events popping up all over the area, including independent craft and artisan food markets like Flagler Village's Night Owl Market and Food In Motion, it seems the community is responding well to the small but growing scene in the young Fort Lauderdale arts district.

"We love to throw awesome events and for the community have a place to go," Miller says. "As we grow and our events grow, we are growing FAT Village."

The free BBQ will last until 8 pm.
