Holly (from FLA, mind you) hitches across the U.S. and becomes a "real" woman, Candy is everyone's "darling," and even the Sugar Plum Fairy makes an appearance in her quest for soul food [Ed. note: and a place to eat]. Here in Sarasota, our Walk on the Wild Side is a little more glamorous. Everything But the Girl boutique is holding a fashion event featuring four local designers: Punk Rock Betty, C.A.B. Fayre, Meandering Mimi and On the Trashy Side. The trunk and fashion show will also feature DJ Sinna G spinning our '80s favorites and photographers Brian Blur and Tara Tomlinson snapping everyone's mug shot. 7-9 p.m. Fri., Sept. 18, Everything But the Girl, 430 Central Ave., Sarasota, 954-8800 or shopebtg.com, free.
