Every now and again an event or party will really stick with the community. Starting as a whisper, these great ideas become fully evolved concepts that start to screamingly draw people from all walks of life under one roof. You grow to love these events so much that you wonder what the area would even be like without it. ArtServe's RedEYE has turned into this sort of beloved beast.

Branded as a "Reboot," RedEYE featured just about everything possible that appeals to the senses. In the evening open air, couples enjoyed a wildly diverse mix of live music. There was everything from a West African drummer to a fire and dance performance to the coos of local singer Corey James Bost, no stranger to the Fort Lauderdale arts scene.

Just outside of the building a smattering of graffiti artists worked on various works onsite. As cars drove past ArtServe and down Sunrise Boulevard, they caught a glimpse of the evening and looked puzzled. What was going on? Who were all of these people? Why hadn't they heard of this clearly massive event? Those seeds were planted, and we're sure that anyone who saw the action surely went home and Googled "ArtServe." They'll be back next year.

Inside of the building, the art exhibition showcased some real gems. A mannequin with a cutout over the heart appeared to be a commentary on the twisted fashion world and its beauty standards. But upon closer inspection, the cutout actually allowed attendees to peer inside of the mannequin, revealing handwritten quotes on gender, sexuality and virginity.

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail
