Welcome to to the Red Roof Inn in Ft. Lauderdale, FL! This blog entry is going to fill you in on all of the fun going on in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area this weekend.
We will start with Thursday, September 19th and the Off the Hookah Anniversary Party. This will take place at Off the Hookah located here in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. This party kicks off at 6pm and runs until 11PM with after parties at the surrounding bars. Oh and did we mention there will be a chance to win a Fiat 500 and a live performance from Rob Van Winkle AKA Vanilla Ice (Ice Baby)!
Then starting on Friday, September 20th, kick off the annual Las Olas Oktoberfest. This event will be held at the “Las Olas Wiesen” Lawn, next to the Riverside Hotel. This is a 2 weekend , 7day, beer, food and music festival to celebrate the tradition of Oktoberfest, original held in Munich since 1810. Live entertainment, a keg taping ceremony, Jodel contest, Bratwurst-eating contest, beer stein holding contest, nailing contest, Party Cycle, Schuhplattler, Raffles, and much more.
What has most at this Ft. Lauderdale hotel excited though in the live performance being put on buy Hip Hop breakout star Kendrick Lamar at Revolution Live. Opening for Kendrick Lamar will be fellow Rap stars Ca$h Out and Yo Gotti. Ca$h Out is best know for his 2011 summer smash, “Cashing Out“. Yo Gotti has had a large underground following since early 2000 but just released his debut studio album in 2012. You may know Yo Gotti’s voice from hits like “Act Right“, “Sold Out” and “Work“.
Headliner Kendrick Lamar broke onto the scene in 2012 when he signed with Aftermath and Interscope Records, Dr. Dre & Eminem‘s record labels. Lamar brought back an old school feel of hip hop mixed with today’s modern day beats. His rhymes flow naturally and contain more thought and poetry than your typical west cost rapper. Ont top of his flourishing solo career, Kendrick Lamar is part of the hip hop super group Black Hippy. Lamar’s debut studio album included Top 40 hits “Swimming Pools (Drank)“, “B*tch, Don’t Kill My Vibe“, and “Poetic Justice“. The album reached Platinum status and in early 2013, MTV crowned Lamar the No. 1 Hottest MC in the Game. Kendrick Lamar also made news recently for his verse in Big Sean’s “Control” where he rips what seems like everyone in the rap game. This verse spawned multiple verbal resonances (none of which seemed to impress Kendrick) and one Instagram photo that featured Jay Z & Diddy. The show will take place on Thursday, September 19th and start at 7PM
