9/15: Fiesta, Forever

Sip tequila, meet a Williams sister, center your chi and and celebrate a bday

FIESTA! You don't have to wait until May to let the Mexican side of you celebrate. Today is Mexico's Independance Day, and South Florida is having a fiesta. Head to the Miami Tower in Downtown Miami - formerly known as the Bank of America Tower - to sing along with the mariachis, eat delicious food and sip some tequila. Click here for more info. Or head to Mercadito Midtown, where they're celebrating "El Grito de La Indepencia" with $16 cochinito tacos, margaritas and music. The fiesta here starts at 5 P.M.

GRAND SLAM AUTHOR: You're used to seeing her on the tennis courts but tonight, you'll see Venus Williams signing copies of the book she co-wrote with Kelly E. Carter and Abby CradenCome to Win shows you how to be a real winner by turning a competitive spirit into success in the game. Meet her tonight at Books & Books at Bal Harbour Shops at 7 P.M.

CENTER YOURSELF: Two celebrations, one month. It's Celebrate National Yoga Month and Ovarian Cancer Month at Ayama Yoga in Aventura. Take a 90-minute class for a $10 donation, which will be made to the Melanie Finley Ovarian Cancer Foundation. 6 P.M.

DREAM A LITTLE DREAM: We're not above a little shameless self-promotion, and we're certainly not above partying like a rock star. Which is why we think you should head to Dream, where our own Peter Bailey, who pens NiteSide's "NiteCap" column, is celebrating his birthday. Anyone who's anyone will be there, which means you should be, too.
