Marvelous Monday


Most people would agree (especially those of you who work) that Friday is Fabulous, but Monday? Here’s a way to make it marvelous as I discovered last Monday. It’s Motown Mondays at Sweet Liberty, a celebration of the great tunes of the Platters, Four Seasons,  The Temptations, and many more, with a good DJ and dancing. The music celebration is part of a nationwide club of DJs, producers, musicians and music enthusiasts with a passion for soul music and dancing that produce weekly events across the world, from San Francisco and New York to Austin, Honolulu and more. Sweet Liberty was named the best bar and best happy hour in SoBe by New Times in 2016 and the one of the best bars in America by Playboy.  Read Full Post & Comments »

Thoroughly Enjoyable Evening

A perfect antidote for a rainy day in Miami, or just when one needs a “pick me up” in the summer doldrums, is the new comedy at Coral Gables theater,  GableStage,” the Legend of Georgia McBride”. I found myself smiling for the entire 90 minutes, except for the time I was laughing. This is a real comedy, unlike many that are called comedies which I find more “black” than comedy. A lot of others must feel the same as GableStage just announced an extra matinee this Saturday, June 24, the day before it closes a very successful run. Read Full Post & Comments »

A Different Kind of Happy Hour

MISO Symphony performing as part of the Palm Court Performance Series in the Miami Design District


On Friday at  5:30 Palm Court, the principal outdoor courtyard in the Design District, was standing room only. People of all ages, and a local and international crowd, were seated around a stage with the full complement of The Miami Symphony Orchestra that abutted the iconic Fly’s Eye dome by Buckminster Fuller. Others looked over from the two story balcony through sea green glass, beside shops from the biggest names in luxury.And still others were just listening to the music from the café that’s part of the new Estefan restaurant. Everyone was loving it, this different Miami happy hour. And The Palm Court Performance Series is free. Plus, thanks to the new restaurant and to bars strategically placed around the courtyard, you can enjoy a mojito, glass of wine, or other beverage while listening to the musical sounds.

Saffron Supper Club

The garden at Mina’s Mediterraneo


Lifestyle experiences in travel, food, drinking – you name it, are a major trend. Dining experiences have been around for around five years, some “underground”, such as Cobaya where the venue is a surprise, others that revolve around visiting “name” chefs, and still others with a theme like “Diner en Blanc” where guests dress in white, the décor is white, and you bring a picnic. The latest one on the scene in the category of Miami supper clubs is the Saffron Supper Club with several novel twists – it explores the food and culture of Persia and the Middle East and there’s a cultural component such as poetry, music, performance or storytelling. There are two dinners coming up in April, so you can give the club a try soon. Read Full Post & Comments »
