Art Basel Ish v. 1

Wynwood Walls adjacent to Wynwood Kitchen and Bar

I can tell Art Basel this year is going to be bananas because the shenanigans have already started. For those of you are still in the dark, Art Basel Miami Beach, currently in its 9th year, takes place December 2 - 5, 2010.


"Art Basel Miami Beach is the most important art show in the United States, a cultural and social highlight for the Americas," states ArtBaselMiamiBeach.com. "As the sister event of Switzerland's Art Basel, the most prestigious art show worldwide for the past 41 years, Art Basel Miami Beach combines an international selection of top galleries with an exciting program of special exhibitions, parties and crossover events featuring music, film, architecture and design."

So basically every art aficionado in the free world will be here to soak up not only the warm Miami sun, but here to bask in the global art scene as well. Yay us! Miami's finally on the map for more than just booty music and Elian Gonzalez.

Snirmoff's Miami London event - Wynwood

We started off this weekend at The Awarehouse for Smirnoff's The World Swaps Nights - Miami meets London with comp admission and cocktails and entertainment by Seamus Haji, King Britt and DJ Irie. 'Twas OK... the drinks were a little weak and the Miami humidity killed my 'do, but it was adequate from pre-gaming before BRAND NUBIAN at the Florida Room.

(BTW, I'm still raving about the killer Hennessey Artistry event.. still tops the list over Smirnoff's and the Johnny Walker Black event I crashed the other night.)

Then last night we made it to the new hot spot Wynwood Kitchen and Bar. Wicked vibe, good location, good price, great service.. couldn't ask from more. But there is.. the restaurant in directly adjacent to Wynwood Walls. Totally like dinning in the middle of an outdoor art gallery. I can't even imagine how packed this place is going to be during  Wynwood Gallery Walk every month.

Turner!

Rubes!
