Photo-recap of  Our #BaselMeet Instagram Meet-up Recap

BaselMeet Instagram meet up was a great success. Hosted by yours truly ArtofMiami.com, along side the305.com and Lifetstylemiamigroup.com, the highlights of the Instameet were many. On of the top of the list was stumbling upon Gabrille Union and  @Ijust_lovethis has the picture to prove it. Thanks to The Scavenger Hunt List many had the opportunity to go out and explore, which made that picture a possibility. The photo walk took us from the Bass Museum, where art for the public was perfect to interact with. We then took a stop at the Botanical Gardens, were friendly butterflies were posing for pics. The Holocaust Memorial was magnificent but brought down people’s mood. Yet thanks to @Joem305, he turned us his boom box and it cheered people up! The bamboo trail was a calming surprise to many. The Historic Espanola transported us into the mediterranean in seconds. In conclusion, BaselMeet had a great turn out of friendly, enthusiastic and positive individuals who I will definitely build friendships throughout  the future.

On behalf of ArtofMiami.com, the305.com and LifestyleGroup.com, I want to thank everyone that complimented us on the tour. We worked hard on it, so your kind words meant a lot. I also took your suggestions into consideration for the next time we meet. Also thanks to everyone that help us without  even having to ask. @Mad19 and @OctavioDiaz helping with the gift bags, @Flipaa passing out maps, @Witness_X, @Marcelo helping with the crowds and pics and the nice girls wearing the 305 shirts @tina_gil , @hereisMonique and @Stephs_Music.

Thank You Instagram for the InstaBook 

Surprised with a small package on the stoop of my front door the other day. It was Instagram with a token of appreciation to @ArtofMiami on Instagram. Inside were some stickers, InstaLike pins, a little book and a thank you note. Instagram the feeling is mutual. So what was in side the book?

New Miami Bridge on I-395 Approved and it Spells Out Miami

The improvements to the I-395 bridge also known as the Mac Aurthur Causeway have been approved for 2018. The designs for the bridge have been narrowed down from four to two. Both designs feature what resembles a huge “M” which one can attribute to the first letter of our beautiful city. The two designs are known as the Lotus option and the Wishbone option. Which do you like best?

Cars Meet Artists at the Miami Int’ Auto Show

As soon as you enter the Miami Beach Convention Center for the Miami International Auto Show, make a quick right to the Car Meets Art exhibit. There you will find the most creative exhibit at the Auto Show. Artists, both local and national are exhibiting their unique artistic expressions using cars as a canvas. The exhibit is sponsored by South Motors and Metro Wrapz who did a more than professional job bringing the artists ideas to life. One artist that skipped the conviennce of shrink wrapping her art to the car was local artist Jessy Nite. Jessy Nite was the one brave soul to take to the brush and paint. She will be at the Miami International Auto Show live painting her 2015 FIAT all weekend. Other noteworthy and very approachable artists on display are 2ALAS, BISCO,BK, SONNI and more. So go over to meet these artists and their cars. Or the other way around.

Le Lambi Haitian Restaurant Kendall (Review and photo)

Le Lambi Haitian Restaurant Review

Found this new place to eat in the Kendall area. It’s located in a not so attractive plaza on the south west corner of 88th street and 137th avenue. However as soon as you go in Le Lambi, the modern and traditional decor transforms the ambience contrasting with the plaza outside. Beautiful original Haitian art decorate the walls. About the food, the Tassot de Cabrit (stewed goat) is delicious. The portions are plentiful and homey. Being Of Dominican descent, I felt like being at the dinner table once again with my grandma at her house. My only complaint was the service. The waitress really was not very friendly. Never cracked a smile. But that might be a managerial issue, of either poor training or lack of worker moral.

In conclusion, Le Lambi is definitely a place to try. I would not be writing this if it wasn’t. As of 11/4 there is a groupon available for this location. So search that.

“Right To Wynwood” a Must See Film by Camila Alvarez and Natalie Edgar


“Right To Wynwood” a Must See Film by Camila Alvarez and Natalie Edgar

Very interesting documentary about the inevitable future of Wynwood unless thoughtful minds get together to prevent it. In summary, the film is a touching film about the gentrification of the neighborhood. Cameo appearance by David Lombardi who comes off a bit arrogant and unsympathetic in the film. Also a few words by gallery owner and once trailblazer to the Wynwood Arts District, Frederic Snitzer with some dismissive words about Wynwood. See for yourself. Great editing and production.
