Driving home on the turnpike today I thought I would see a bunch of boats headed south to the Keys for tonight's lobster mini-season kick-off but only saw one. Hopefully everyone is careful tomorrow but I'm sure we'll be reading about dead divers by the afternoon. Grab a seat and check out your evening Sift...
A- The Heat Lightning shares some big, sharp photos from the New Work Miami 2010 exhibition at the Miami Art Museum and interjects a little opinion, too.
And it was packed. I actually did not get images of some of the best pieces in the exhibition because I spent so much time talking to people. A return trip is in order, and as much to see the exhibition of work from the permanent collection upstairs. It’s true that the MAM’s collection is far from world class, but it’s grown a lot over the last few years, to the point that these yearly shows are able to feel both cohesive and distinct from each other.B- Miami For Change revisits City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado's website before he was elected.
C- South Florida Food and Wine says you can drink, eat and watch a movie at Fort Lauderdale's Cafe Vico.
As you are being served and eating your dinner the food and wine theme-related movie is showing. It's sort of like going to the movie theater but you have much better food and are able to drink wine. You would think in an intimate yet large group of 20 there would be disruptive chatter, didn't happen. Everyone there was in attendance for the food, the wine and the movie and a delightful time was definitely had by all so much so, I was the last person to leave at midnight. This Wine Dinner - Movie Night is a monthly event at Cafe Vico and is exclusively limited to 20 people reservations are booked quickly.D- Big honors for South Beach's Club Deuce.
E- Depth of Field (welcome back!) posts some images of Miami-Dade's new Park It campaign.
F- Sex and the Beach is celebrating its 6 Year Anniversary and takes the opportunity to announce some big plans.
I put travel writing on hold for several years but that passion hardly ever lost its spark, so at long last, I'm opening up a whole new travel section here, which is a no-brainer, obviously. Sex and the Beach intends to cover as many romantic beach or waterfront destinations a girl can take!G- Big drama over at Wide Lawns and Narrow Minds.
My new house has black mold and termites. I have to move out of my new house for two months. The baby is going to be born in about two or three months. If I have to bring a new baby home to my parents' house, I might go on a rampage.H- Something called Miami Squares is going down over at Sweat tomorrow night.
