"Awesome" is a word I reserve for a few select things I have experienced, including walking on the Great Wall of China and my mom's Reuben sandwiches. Art Basel Miami Beach is also on that list.
In a city of great parties, Ocean Drive magazine has thrown some of Miami's most memorable over the years, including an anniversary bash at Fisher Island that was as wild as it was dense with models and celebs.
There's nothing like a traffic jam to point to the fact that a bash is gonna be packed. When the four lanes of traffic is backed up for blocks in both directions and the host is Miami Heat DJ Irie, packed is only half the given.
The Mayfair Antique Market in Coconut Grove is like walking into a BritCom, you know, a British TV Sitcom, something like, Are You Being Served?
We've all heard the saying, "the only constant in life is change." This rings especially true for the city of Miami Beach.
Miami: the destination for domestic relaxation. Most of us have memories of days on the beautiful beaches and evenings roaming a vibrant nightlife. Rarely does one venture across the causeway to explore what else lies in The Magic City.
Miami is a fascinating place to be. Miami during Art Basel is like Oz on amphetamines. And while Art Basel week may be when the neighborhood looks it best, Wynwood's change is no horse and pony show.
