I finally got out to Wynwood to check out 1-800-Lucky, Miami’s recently opened Asian marketplace. Themed out as a record shop and convenience store, this kind of dining experience is new territory for the city, bringing the food hall concept to the forefront.

Cirque du Soleil rolled into town over the weekend with their new touring show, OVO. We were lucky enough to be invited to a behind-the-scenes look into their rehearsal day before the show on Friday and snapped some photos backstage.

Take a look behind the curtain of OVO just ahead.
Cirque du Soleil is bringing OVO, its newest touring show, to Miami next week. The show will perform in Sunrise and Miami as part of a global tour in arenas around North America. More photos and details just ahead.
Spend just a few minutes in Miami and you’re well aware that there’s no shortage of color in the spectrum of our characters. Our locals, whether born-and-bred or transplants, are not afraid to make a statement. So was the legacy of Irene Williams. Anyone who grew up in Miami knows the ’80’s and ’90’s were an eccentric time for our city. Now, in a pop-up show that aims to celebrate what would have been her 100th birthday, If These Hats Could Tawk is bringing that colorful eccentricity to the forefront.
First things first, it’s been a very long time since my husband and I went out to do anything that falls under the category of sexy/fun/sophisticated and/or exciting. I wish I were joking or exaggerating the truth for the sake of good commentary, but the fact is that we are going on eight years of marriage and the past four of those have been spent parenting a very independent child. So it is without any reservation that I can admit to you, my dear readers, that when the invitation to a sexy magic show at Faena Hotel Miami Beach showed up in my inbox, I was not only confused (really – I checked to make sure they meant me), but nearly leapt through the screen to RSVP and secure our spot.
