Art Basel Frazzle!

4 Dec

Piano

Art Basel Miami Beach has become one of the most prominent and well-attended cultural affairs to ever hit Miami where anything goes. During this week-long (officially only 4 days but that doesn’t stop Miami from celebrating well-beyond that time frame) frazzle, expect the unexpected. Everything from art to “art,” street fashion that pairs orange camouflage pants with a multi-colored Hawaiian shirt (yes, I saw this last night), creative food, and alcohol galore – all will happen THIS week.

There are a thousand different Basel articles and schedules out there – all very read-worthy. I will now construct my own to serve a few purposes: 1) to organize my own life and schedule 2) to coordinate with my friends 3) to let you all know of some of the best Basel events in town, and 4) because Kristine McGlinchey told me I should 🙂

*Note – some of these events are open to public, invite only, and/or RSVP-only

March Madness!

6 Mar

In my opinion, March is the craziest month of the year! I’m overwhelmed just thinking about everything that’s going on. Summer is just around the corner and March marks the epic… SPRING BREAK! This will be my first time that I won’t be partaking in SB… Well, in the literal sense that I won’t have a week off of work/school 😦 Here’s an overview of March events that I’m interested in and /or attending! Hope you can join in on the fun with me 🙂

Bold = I’ve already RSVP’d!

Phew! I hope I can hibernate a little in April…
