Are you On the List? Ever wonder how to slip past the velvet ropes and into private lounges where supermodels dance on tables and celebrities are livin' large and in charge? Our party patrol shares night life secrets, from what to wear to how to score VIP access. We get celebrities, DJs, club owners and doormen to reveal how you can take full advantage of South Florida's glamorous, sexy club scene.

Micaela Hood: Friends call me Ms. Miami. I'm a veteran South Florida entertainment reporter and celeb spotting is my specialty. I regularly interview A-listers on the red carpet at the Academy Awards, Super Bowls and haute fashions shows. I've even hosted events with Kim Kardashian and Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley. I live the good life on South Beach with my dog and cat, Buffy and Chloe. I love to shop, tan and people-watch on Lincoln Road.
