    Residents of Miami Beach and surrounding neighborhoods deliver goods to a truck being loaded in South Beach to be delivered to the nation of Haiti after a devastating earthquake.

    48 IS GREAT: After being glued to CNN all week, did you clean Publix out of canned food this weekend? Now all you need is a place to donate. If you happen to be downtown in the next two days, head to restaurant/lounge Mia at Biscayne, where local celebs and personalities will be donating their time to collecting food, clothing, supplies and money for Haiti earthquake victims. 5-10 P.M. 

    IN TRANSIT: And while you're downtown, spread the donation love with a visit to Transit Lounge, where a donation station will be set up during the bar's open hours. Also, purchase the special Haitian Relief drink and all proceeds go toward the effort. Philanthropy and booze - we can't think of a better combination.

    BAR NONE: You're still mourning the untimely death of "that little bar next to The Vagabond," PS14, but you'll be happy to know that the space re-opens tonight as Bar. Every Monday, starting tonight, they'll host Locals Only. There will be cheap drinks, free BBQ and even art. Oh, and, of course, music. 28 NE 14th St., Miami. 8 P.M.-5 A.M.

    KING JAMES: James Brown may be many things: godfather of soul, insane dancer and he made sure we all knew that he felt good. What many of us don't know is that he performed a show that kinda changed history. On April 5, 1968, the soul legend performed a concert in Boston that many say protected the city from the types of unspeakable riots that ripped other cities apart after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. the night before. There is now a film that tries to explain how James Brown saved the day and it will be playing at Sweat Records for free at 8 P.M.
