It's White Party weekend -- do you know where your bleach is?

Oh, that's right, you already starched, bleached and waxed everything last week, when what was once just a one-night-only affair kicked off with a stupefying series of parties. After 22 years, the legendary HIV/AIDS fundraiser seems to be, like many of its most faithful disciples, aging very well. This year is no exception, with Grammy-winning Jody Watley performing and DJ Tracy Young spinning at the main event at Vizcaya on Saturday. It's bound to be a magical night -- if you can keep up long enough to make it. After all, White Party parties began Wednesday, and when we say parties, we're not talking about cucumber-sandwich tea dances, but full blown bashes beginning at 5 a.m. and not ending until sometime in the afternoon like the one taking place after the actual White Party is over, from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday at Club Space where DJ Junior Vasquez will do his best to keep even the weariest, cleanest living, most Red Bull-immune on their toes. Pop open a can of Red Bull and read the exhaustive list of White Party events at http://www.whiteparty.org/. Never has there been a better excuse for partying like a rock star. Miami Herald
