Skip to comments.Wild weekend: party on the Beach, police shooting on mainland
Posted on 05/27/2012 7:45:36 AM PDT by SteelToe
The scene in South Florida was surreal Saturday.
On one side of the MacArthur Causeway, the side where police had braced for trouble, scantily clad men and women poured beer and testosterone into the streets, cafes and clubs, while thumping to the loud, restless beats of South Beach.
Meanwhile, on the mainland side of the causeway, allegedly the quiet side this weekend, a naked man was shot to death by police after he was found chewing on another mans face.
Under the hot sun Saturday in South Beach, long before the nighttime partying began, revelers took videos, posed for photographs and sipped basketball-sized cocktails, strolling Ocean Drive for the annual hip-hop/rap extravaganza known as Urban Beach Week. The event, which traditionally draws upward of 250,000 people from all over the country and from all walks of life, is known as much for its over-the-top fun as it is for its music and celebrity mix.
Ladies in bikinis, fishnet dresses and barely-there bra tops strolled in throngs (and thongs), some of them daring enough to wear spiked heels. Men with low-riding shorts and jeans mingled on the strip, talking game and getting turned away more often than not.

“Urban Beach Week” . . . enough said.
Debauchery at its finest...
No fear of he Lord, no wisdom. But I doubt the debauching crowd cares about such stuff with their crotches ruling their lives.
‘No fear of THE Lord’ ... need more coffee.
Doesn't this sound like our kind of place?
There were pirates from the Indies
There were models from Paris
There were locals and New Yorkers
And the Brazilian Navy
‘Good thing we took the flag when we left S Florida.
I thought in my own troublemaker way WHERE ARE THE PICTURES?
I looked at the newspaper series and oh my gosh, where is the BARF alert?
When the welfare riots start (When the welfare checks stop coming as the US Economy collapses, these people are going to be our first enemies as they are going to want my 7 day supply of food).
Post 3 invoked zombies already.
I think that was the magic word.
Hmmmm....Food for thought.
Good thread idea! Especially since we haven’t had zombies in a while. I think the horde needs to be replenished, anyway. They seem to have fed on each other...
There’s also “dancing in the pool” by what looks like the regular cast of “People of Walmart.” And cannibalism, of course.
If I was the fiancee of the 28 year old lawyer from Nebraska, I’d have second thoughts about marrying her!
People of Walmart, the zombocalypse has begun!
There's a lot of expressiveness in the phrase, "scantily clad men".
Dare I associate myself with such a concept?
It seems like more of an Afro event as opposed to WalMart event.
Yet I believe I could grow to like this place.
Yes, it could suit us rather well.

But won’t they have to ‘work’ through your 30 days supply of ammo? Jus’ axing.
