Miami, You Have Surprised Me!
Of course my dumb ass forgot my camera, but Critical Miami has some pictures of galleries that I don't think I went to (I think they went to galleries in the Design District and not the Wynwood District - or maybe I was drunk)
Anyway, we had a great time! I know usually we give Miami a lot of shit for being a sub-par city - being that mostly everything to do with the city sucks. But for once, I was part of something that wasn't sucky!
We started up around 36th Street and Miami Avenue. We hit up the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery and the Dot Fiftyone Gallery along with some others. At this point we were already happy with what we were seeing. Plus the free booze was flowin.
Next we walked down Miami Ave and checked out Spinello Gallery, Signature Art Gallery, Hardcore Art Contemporary Space, Kunsthaus Miami and I think some others. At this point I don't remember any names of Galleries and I am resting entirely on the Wynwood Map for guidance.
A little tipsy, we finally made our way towards the 23rd Street hub of action. All of the galleries were filled with people and offered snacks (cheese, fruit, crackers) and beverages (I had a fabulous Mojito and a Chocolate Martini....mmmmm).
In the middle of naming Superbee's first child "winesnack" and trying to hail a cab to Denny's I realized that I hadn't had that much fun in awhile. And yes, I have Miami and my lovely partners in crime for the evening to thank for that.
So if you ever are free the 2nd Saturday of the Month I highly recommend checking out the excitement in the often-shady-but-not-on-this-night Wynwood neighborhood.
