A white party, MMA fight, jazz and more tonight

Tonight is going to be great. Fun-seekers can choose from a bloody MMA fight or a sensuous jazz show just to name a few things.

Let me explain: In Wednesday's Sip + Play, I listed the incorrect date for the Inaugural STEM to Fork Culinary Competition.  It's happening now. It ends at 11:30 a.m., 7th Street Public Market, 224 East 7th St.

Now let's get this party started. See you in the streets.
