The road to hell is paved with good intentions…the good intentions were mine when yesterday I decided to go to the Soho Beach House Tent “just to check it out”…After the umpth late night, I had a smashing Cuban breakfast at El Exquisito restaurant in Little Havana and went to Pulse Contemporary Art Fair for what may be the strongest, most engaging iteration of Pulse I have ever seen. Check out my favorite standouts.
Tonight on the “menu” I have only good music and friends at The Anderson bar in Miami Beach. The party is called “Haute to Death”, maybe not too good of an omen?
