Enormous Horse Sculpture Almost Complete

Enormous Horse Sculpture Almost Complete

When I first saw it, it reminded me of the Kelpies in Scotland. Almost as big at 110 feet and not as expensive to create at $30 million dollars, the giant Pegasus Sculpture is promising to be an anchor attraction for Gulfstream Park. When complete it is to house the Jockey Hall of Fame for horse racing and it will be the tallest public art in South Florida. Below are some pictures of the concept sketches of the Pegasus Park Sculpture when completed. Unlike the opinion of other blogs I am excited to see the completion of this awesome  project and its official addition to South Florida’s public art collection.

Photos From Blogger Day at Gulfstream Park

Gulfstream Park is more than a race track. It is a an entertainment complex full of things to do.  My first time there was at “Blogger Day” hosted at Gulfstream Park during one of racing’s biggest day, the Belmont Stakes. The crowds energy at Gulfstream was contagious as fans were cheering for American Pharaoh who was reaching for a triple crown. The first in 31 years. We were hosted to an all you can eat buffet at Ten Palms Restaurant which overlooks the racetrack. Memo to myself: add Ten Palms Restaurant to the Top Restaurants with a View in Miami. (Not technically Miami tho) The seafood was the highlight of the buffet which served endless crab legs, mussels and salmon with a house cocktail sauce.

The sweets here my highlight as I can appreciate the artistic presentation of the desserts. Take a look for yourself by scrolling through my picture recap of Blogger Day at Gulfstream Race Track and Casino. Also look forward to a future post about the enormous Pegasus Sculpture being erected at Gulfstream Park. It promises to be a new awe striking attraction. I will definitely be returning to Gufstream Park. First, to check out the night scene and also during the winter when it is set to even bigger crowds as the “snow birds” come down to bet on horses in Florida.

New Fishing Technique Invented in Miami

You ever feel guilty about catching fishes and releasing them back hungry? Well, I’m starting an experiment and calling it “Snack & Release.” So far is going good. I buy live worms for $3. When a catch a fish, I send it off with a nice snack as a way to say thanks for the thrill. Only problem is I’m now feeling guilty about the poor worms getting swallowed up. That’s for another day to solve. Try it yourself, it quite rewarding. Thanks for watching. Shot using GoPro Hero  and headmount. Edited using iMovie.

New Must Try Restaurant in West Kendall: Mr & Mrs. Bun

Must Try Restaurant in West Kendall: Mr & Mrs. Bun

It doesn’t get more West than West Kendall. But don’t let the sub-urban location deprive you of something new and good. I assure you that Mr & Mrs.Bun will not disappoint. This new gourmet sandwich shop is the creation of talented husband and wife culinary duo. Both are graduates from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School. Their menu is inspired by Peruvian cuisine with an American fusion. While the entrees are the creation of Mr.Bun, the sweets are made specially by the Misses. Everything is made in-house including, well, the buns. We tried both the Short Ribs with Chimmichuri sauce and the Pork Belly sandwiches. Both great with a slight edge going to the Short Ribs Sandwich as it is more likely to satisfy all taste buds. The fat content on Pork Belly can be a turn off to some. But it’s delicious if you pay that no mind. Portions are great but not consistent, as the first time the short ribs seem to be more loaded. Nevertheless, Mr. & Mrs. Bun is a must try and my new favorite spot to eat in the Kendall area.

Yo Miami’s 4th Year Anniversary Bash 5/24/15

Yo Miami turns four with a celebration of Miami’s top talents!

In four years, Yo Miami has gone from just a facebook page promoting the new venues and events popping up in Wynwood, to a multifaceted artist incubator spanning most of South Florida. From its gallery/artist collective space in Little Haiti the organization has continued to grow as a bridge between the creative community and businesses, creating new opportunities benefitting all involved. Finding a lack of resources aimed at educating the public about the evolution of the Miami art scene, Yo Miami is now launching its own Permanent Collection. This collection will serve as a time capsule and indicator of the progress achieved by the artists who have come to call our city home. Read the rest of this entry »
