ALL WIRED UP
BY THOMAS BARKER
SEASON PREVIEW & A FULL MOON Well it’s official! Season has arrived, and with it comes a whole lot of arts and cultural events that are sure to titillate your senses and keep you entertained throughout the fall and winter! Every year, we dedicate this issue to all of the wonderful arts and cultural events that make South Florida one of the most vibrant hot spots for arts, culture, and entertainment. In this year’s Season Preview Issue, you will get the inside scoop on all the fabulous Broadway shows that will be hitting both the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. In our Season Preview, you’ll also get the skinny on some of the biggest events in South Florida, including Art Basel, the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, Winter Party, White Party, and so many more. One event that is really near and dear to me personally is the return of the monthly Full Moon Parties at The DiLido Beach Club at the Ritz Carlton South Beach. As one of the only nightspots where you can enjoy a clear ocean view while imbibing delicious cocktails and indulging in some scrumptious nibbles,
The DiLido Beach Club has always been one of my favorite watering holes! This Saturday, October 15th at 8 p.m. Miami’s most popular oceanfront party returns to the DiLido Beach Club every month through May 2012 with “Legends of the Full Moon” featuring mythological legends at each. The first Legends of the Full Moon Party Series will begin by taking revelers on a journey to the other side of the world, as they celebrate Chang’e – the chinese goddess of the moon.
Ribs, and Grilled Shrimp prepared on Robata Grills. As a DJ pumps out some Asian infused lounge beats, guests will get the chance to gaze at the moon through enormous high tech telescopes. Now, if you can’t make it to this month’s Full Moon Party, you should definitely plan to attend the next one on November 11th! In the meantime, be sure to grab a pen and paper, so you can begin planning for season with our Season Preview!
The evening will focus on Chinese lore with guests embarking upon a mystical journey of Asian inspired entertainment and culinary delights, including my personal fave – the specialty Lychee Lotus martini for only $12! Of course, there will be plenty to drink, as master mixologist Ramsey Pimentel has created an assortment of cocktails for this special soiree. If that were not enough, Chinese inspired dancers and performers will entertain and mesmerize partygoers with traditional costumes and performance art. Along with a few other surprises, the new chef de cuisine Andrew Balick has put together a fantastic menu that features $10 light bites inspired by the Far East, including Kumomoto Oysters, Korean Style Grilled Short

WIRE FEATURE: MONSTERS TAKE OVER SCORE ON MONDAYS
BY THOMAS BARKER Over the years, Miami Beach’s largest gay nightclub has built a reputation for bringing in some of the biggest DJs and entertainers in the music business. From DJ Abel to Lady Gaga, there seems to be an endless supply of celebs that make Score such a wonderful place to party and dance your ass off! This past Monday, Score changed things up a bit by launching a new weekly party called Madame Monsters Mondays. Hosted by Tony Ferro and the Penny Back Boyz the party is set to be an intoxicating revival in nightlife entertainment, as Madame Monsters Mondays offers a vanguard twist on the art of Vaudeville. This weekly extravaganza features the infamous Zaza, Lucky, and the rest of the Circ X troupe. Every Monday Night at 9 pm. Madame Monsters opens her doors, inviting revelers to cavort with her colorful creatures. Although guests are encouraged to participate, they can simply sit back and enjoy the journey. Lavish choreographies, outrageous theatrics, video interruptions, and avant-garde burlesque will be injected throughout the evening. The best part is that acts change each week, so guests will never experience the same show twice. I recently caught up with South Beach’s very own king of Madame Monsters Monday, the fabulous Tony Ferro, to get the scoop on this new theatrical shindig. Check out what he had to say:
You’ve been working with Score on a number of nights, and now you are starting a new night. What makes you want to continue to grow with them?
were flawless and the crowd was very enthusiastic and energetic.
are unique and cutting edge… one part circus, two parts burlesque and a pinch of class and a dash of trash!
How did you find your entertainers?
What can people expect on this night?
I have been working with Score for several years now and our events are always successful so when it came time to create a new Monday night event I felt that Score would be the obvious choice, since we have a wonderful working relationship, and I think that since they’ve known me for so long, they are more open minded to my crazy ideas and concepts. There is a trust dynamic as well. We are pretty much a family there.
Natasha Tsakos aka Zaza Zaza. I approached her in regards to doing a Monday night cabaret style weekly event and she was immediately on board. She got in contact with Diana Lozano, Circ X’s artistic director, who’s been working with them, since its inception 11 years ago and which I have worked with as well. The rest is history! These are the hardest working artists that I’ve ever had the pleasure of being around. I was at rehearsals on Sunday and just watching them exhausted me. Everyone in the group is a remarkable independent artist. It is a pleasure to watch them share the stage. Lucky Bruo, Ana Mendez, Olga Saretsdy, Rudy Goblen, Luis Cuevas, and our guest star April Henry to name a few.
A fun, interactive night with a bunch of surprises each week! The performers will amaze and keep you entertained.
Why the name Madame Monsters? Madame Monsters, it’s not just a party; it’s not just a show, but also a surround sense experience, wherein you enter her world: the world of Madame Monsters… character, pizazz, mystery with a twist! What is the concept of this night? Music, song, dance, theater, and comedy. We have created a unique high quality cabaret-variety show in Miami, integrating videos, social media, twit-up participation, live music, theatrical shows... It’s a modern edgy cabaret with class… a place where anyone is invited to sit, have a cocktail, and be entertained. Why do you feel it was important to do this night? I am a big supporter of the arts and feel that we need to increase our knowledge and educate ourselves on different forms of artistic expression. What was the response to the first night last Monday? Amazing! Madame Monsters was a huge success! All the hard work definitely paid off! The performances
Zaza Zaza seems to be a big part of the night. Can you tell me a little bit about her? Natasha (Zaza) is a really special person. Uber-talented and professional, she directs, produces, dances, and performs! Her brain is always on the go and she comes up with the most brilliant ideas. She’s very smart as well and one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. Having worked in the industry for over 13 years, she needed to create a separate character for that world. She is currently developing a new show titled “hi”, which uses 3D mapping projection on stage! Now Zaza handles the cabaret performances. She is nuts, fearless, and a shape shifter! Why did you choose to collaborate with Circ X? The Circ X troupe is a class act. They take their art very seriously. I worked with them a few years back and I’m honored to be working with them again. It’s familia! Can you give me a little background on Circ X? Circ X is a traveling performance troupe and production company directed by Diana Lozano. Their performances

Will music play a part in this night? If so, how so? The music is amazing and includes everything from 50s dance to modern day pop. April Henry, guest MC said, “Music is completely integrated to the show and really sets the tempo. Quirky cool, retro chic into cutting edge top 40. You name it and it’s involved with the show in some way or another. The entire night is like an improvised orchestration with the characters and the audience filling the melody.”

WIRED ON: MENTAL HEALTH TYPE A BEHAVIOR
THE BARELY CLAD & GORGEOUS @ JOHNNY’S PHOTOS BY JUAN SACO MIRONOFF
The notion of type A behavior was developed in the 1950s, when cardiologists Milton Friedman and R. H. Rosenman noticed that most of their heart attack patients seemed to share certain behavior patterns. They observed that people with these patterns, which they called Type A behaviors, are more likely to develop coronary heart disease, arteriosclerosis, and other stress-related disorders. Here is a list of some of the typical behaviors that Type A people exhibit: Enjoying highpressure situations; Taking control of most situations; Eating quickly, even when there is plenty of time; Doing most things quickly, even when there is plenty of time; Becoming angry when one has to wait for anything for more than a few minutes; Doing more than one thing at a time; Never slowing down to relax; Interrupting others frequently; Becoming annoyed when someone speaks too slowly; Preferring to work under pressure or against a deadline; Becoming bored quickly; Becoming uncomfortable when just sitting around; Taking work home every day; Having a difficult time sitting still; Becoming impatient with people who don’t work equally hard; Needing to win when playing games or sports and becoming angry upon losing; Rarely doing something special just for oneself; Resisting changes in routine and new ways of doing things; Not taking one’s full vacation time; Focusing on small details and criticizing others; Constantly thinking about work; Not relaxing on weekends; always working on a project; Arguing with people who disagree with how things should be done; Becoming irritated when faced with obstacles; Taking just about everything seriously. People who constantly engage in these behavior patterns produce large amounts of stressrelated hormones that damage heart muscle and upset the heart’s rhythm. For this reason, type A behavior is a serious threat to heart health; in fact, such behavior is considered as destructive as smoking, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. It may even intensify these risk factors when they are already present. WHY DO PEOPLE ENGAGE IN TYPE A BEHAVIOR? There are many reasons why people develop a pattern of type A behavior. The underlying factors could be any of the following: •Parental models. If your parents set an example of impatient, driven behavior, you may be following in their footsteps. •Family-of-origin dynamics. If type A behavior was rewarded in your family, you may have learned to be a high-achieving, impatient person to please your parents or to survive emotionally in your family. •Social factors. Type A behavior is rewarded in American society. The American business world thrives on such behavior and admires those who exhibit it. •Rewards. Winning feels better than losing. Some people get their self-esteem from competing and winning, and are uncomfortable unless they are in competitive situations. Some people might argue that there is nothing wrong with type A behavior as long as a person is satisfied with his or her life and enjoys good health. Each person must explore the dynamics of his or her life and decide whether change is needed. HOW CAN TYPE A BEHAVIOR BE CHANGED? Mental health professionals and physicians generally agree that type A behavior is bad for your health. If you are suffering physically or emotionally from the effects of this behavior pattern, you may wish to consider taking the following steps: (1) Identify the aspects of your life with which you are dissatisfied and the specific things you want to change; (2) Set goals for changing unwanted behaviors and learning new behaviors; (3) Identify the areas of your life where you place too much pressure on yourself and others; (4) Identify the dynamics in your family of origin that contributed to your developing a type A behavior pattern; (5) Identify and explore the beliefs that underlie your driven behavior; (6) Learn and practice relaxation techniques; (7) Work fewer hours and stop taking work home with you; (8) Choose a noncompetitive leisure activity and do it regularly; (9) Build closer relationships with those you care about by spending more time with them, talking about your goals for change and asking them for feedback; (10) Teach yourself to do one thing at a time; (11) Ask for feedback on hostile, impatient behavior; (12) Develop your listening skills; (13) Challenge automatic thoughts that cause you to behave in a competitive, pressured way; (14) Read books and articles that will help you develop the skills that support your new lifestyle.
