Miccosukee Community Center: Nightlife in Miccosukee.... it ain't Las Vegas
Miccosukee, Florida is not Las Vegas. Hell, it's not even Los Alamos. Partying in Miccosukee at night is pretty much a "Los Cause". (lost cause...being funny)
About the only two places inside the village of Miccosukee with anything going on most nights are Cal-Mart (see tip in shopping, open until about 10 pm) and the Miccosukee Community Center.
The Center is a simple little building with room for a small dance, and a kitchen for preparing a little buffet or party. It's used for many different items in and around town, not the least of which are wedding receptions, dances, day care activities and adult education.
Many nights you'll find something goin' on at the Community Center. It just won't be any big-city party. You'll note the sign outside the center in the picture below. They're advertising a Friday night barbecue, and an adult reading class every Monday night. Just for the record, I'm not sure exactly what good it is to put out a sign to advertise a class for adults who can't read. Go figure.
Or... you could just enjoy a nice country moonlight night, free for the viewing all over the area. (see second photo)
Dress Code: Basically, you're required to wear clothes, unless it's health screening night. ; )

Miccosukee Community Center: Another look at the Miccosukee Community Center
Same as previous tip, basically. I just wanted to give you a better look at the Community Center building.
BTW, we used to have our town voting precinct at this center, which was fine. It's been moved to Indian Springs Baptist Church, which I love..... since it's next door to my house. To vote in any election, I just take a nice 100 yard walk.
There is one nifty little perk to voting in Miccosukee elections. I shared this detail with my friend karenincalifornia, and she absolutely adored it. At her request, I am including it with this tip...
In Miccosukee, the poll workers usually bake homemade cookies on election day. Then, when people vote, they're treated to "I Voted" homemade cookies. I had a nice coconut macaroon last time, and it was very very good. It was the second-best homemade macaroon I'd ever had. ; )
