Flower Happy Hour!

You know the “happy hour” part – in this case there’s unlimited wine and another beverage to mesh with the evening’s theme (e.g. saki, sangria) and appetizers. It’s 6:30 pm. to 8 p.m. but you can linger. Differences are it’s in a flower shop in Miami, it’s on set days, and lucky you, the next one is this Wednesday, June 26. What about the rest of the “flower”part?

Exclusive Reader Event June 26!

You’re invited to an exclusive reader event on June 26 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  at Camilla, a jewel of a boutique with statement fashion and accessories designed by this Australian designer. I first saw her clothes at Miami Swim Week a few years ago and fell in love with her fabrics, colors and patterns. You’ll enjoy champagne, lots of eye candy and a very special gift of one of her clutch bags. The number of attendees is limited so you’ll need to reply by June 17.

A Day in Overtown: Where to Visit, Eat, Stay,and Entertain

Places to visit, where to eat, where to stay, entertainment, and the annual not to be missed event:  here’s your guide for a day exploring Overtown, one of Miami’s most historic areas. There’s no better neighborhood to find authentic soul food or experience an amateur night showcase that’s modeled after the historic Apollo Theater’s long-running one in New York City. And rivaling Wynwood’s famous street murals are those of the late artist Purvis Young, born in Overtown. The building façades and architecture harken back to the early 1900s when black performers played, ate and stayed here. A new B & B, too, a bargain at rates starting at $100 a night.
