My first year attending and i can say I’ll return…
This time of year is not the same crowd from the summer, which is great.
Art Basel Dec 7-10, but pre parties start the 5th.
Thursday 7th- we arrived, we booked Airbnb… hotels were ridiculously expensive, it was a condo next to Prime, near Story night club.
checked in / settled in (local fun is 10min walking distance)
First night we kept it basic, went to Mangos for dinner (tacos & chicken & shrimp)
>Art of Africa 17$ 12pm-5pm ; two buildings for the price of one.
I was honored to meet the founder, who appreciated my su_ella shirt “yo soy Afro-Latino”
Stopped at Planet sushi (miso soup & edamame, shrimp tempura & Hawaiian Roll & Nutella roll)
Later that night while waiting on one more friend went around the corner to Primo Pizza they had some giant slices
Then Adidas had a very private party we found on EventBright (free) but the line was ridiculous over a two hour wait, you can’t buy your way in. Also no phone were aloud.
Breakfast at Big Pink, up the street from our place, food was great, skip the biscuit. Also bring an umbrella.
Mural Festival (free + 1 drink, on event bright) 12pm-9pm
Plenty of bars / restaurants, block party / festival vibes, food trucks and vendors.
Honestly when i return, i plane to stay in this are, everything was there.
Second spot of the day, Woodfer cafe 10$ 4pm-12am… i would of been okay skipping this.
Wet Willies basic Miami activity.
Spectrum 25$ (Groupon had a two for one special)
Dress for the cold (bring a jacket) and pack an umbrella for the random rain
Lyft was cheaper than Uber
Well that’s that… xoxo
