For some people, three-day weekends are an opportunity to enjoy the nightlife without early-morning consequences for one extra day. So think of tonight as Saturday. Solera celebrates the weekend with a carnival-themed party full of theatrics and drink specials. Now that it's finally warm enough, city folk can enjoy the truly spectacular views from the rooftop, easily one of the best in the downtown area. Adding to the ambience, showgirls will strut their stuff, lights will flash, and festival ambience will abound. Local DJs of note, including Jizthagoods, Jonathan Ackerman, and Strangelove, will set your head spinning with tunes. Solera cocktails can be pricey (but are worth it). During the party you can get deals with $5 select mojitos, mai tais, and paradise punch until 9 p.m., and $7 drink specials after.
