Stocking Stuffer Part Deux tonight + Holiday hours!!

Dear Friends,

Tonight is our Holiday jam – the SWEAT STOCKING STUFFER part deux!! Last year’s was lovely, and this year will be even better because we can spread out in our huge new location and serve y’all some of the most amazing organic hot chocolate, espresso, tea and coffee drinks Miami has to offer!! A lot of our friends are baking cookies too so feel free to get crafty in the kitchen and show up with a batch. We’re also collecting art supplies for an art program launching next year at an orphanage in Colombia so please bring any new or gently-used creative materials you have lying around to donate!!

Next door at Churchill’s, catch live performances by some of Miami’s best – RAFFA AND RAINER, JESSE JACKSON, NICK KRUGE, the returning BOB LADUE and you never know who else might show up…

Not to mention the fact that Sweat has tons of amazing, unique gifts that your friends and family will love!! Skip the malls – we’ve got box sets, books, music, toys, rare records, DVDs galore and we KNOW you haven’t finished your holiday shopping just yet…

PLUS:
-We just got in 600 new used LPs from our friends at Radio-Active Records in Ft. Lauderdale!! Everything from Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark to Back That Azz Up…
-Come see our new mural/installation by awesome Miami artist Federico Nessi!! More soon by LEBO, Keen One and more…
-We seriously have the most delicious organic drinks and fixings, everything is available with regular or soy whipped cream, cinnamon, chocolate or caramel syrup, and a whole array of organic sweeteners from fairly-traded cane sugar to vegan agave nectar!!

***SWEAT HOLIDAY HOURS***
Open every day NOON to MIDNIGHT except:
*December 25 – noon to 6pm (we’re heathens…)
