My last day at Art Basel in Miami Beach, I headed to the Wynwood neighborhood to check out yet more satellite fairs, including the Red Dot Fair, Context and Art Miami.

Tus Soni2: Los Hollywood, Troker & Pommez Internacional

Friday I headed to Subterranean to catch the last night of the Tus Soni2 Indie Latin Music Concert Series. I was especially excited to see Los Hollywood headline after learning about them from my co-worker, but also enjoyed catching the two opening acts – Troker and Pommez Internacional. First things first – Los Hollywood. I’d … Continue reading

My Top 90s Hip-Hop/R&B Music Videos

Is there anything more amazing than the never-ending, plot-heavy, character-driven music videos of the 90s? Seriously, they don’t make them like this anymore. Also, I love that P. Diddy is in nearly every music video of the 90s. 6. Busta Rhymes “Dangerous” The visuals in Busta Rhymes’ videos were always vivid and attention-grabbing, but this … Continue reading

Romeo Santos featuring Drake – “Odio”

Man, Romeo Santos is one smart guy. First, he partners up with Usher for “Promise” and now he’s recruited Drake for some bilingual singing & rapping on “Odio.” I absolutely love that he’s working to get some cross-over appeal for himself and for bachata in general. Plus, Drake singing in Spanish is amazing. Check out … Continue reading

The other Saturday night, I forced my friends to come over in the middle of a blizzard for dinner. Hey, I wanted to have a dinner party, and I was going to have a dinner party. I also had some more recipes from Food & Wine I wanted to try out. My pièce de résistance … Continue reading

Street Art in Miller Beach, Indiana

If you thought I was bluffing when I mentioned taking a road trip to Indiana to see some street art, you clearly don’t know me very well. After checking out the Paint Paste Sticker exhibit at the Chicago Cultural Center, I learned about a street art project in Miller Beach, Indiana, called Lake Effect. So … Continue reading

Snow Day

No, these photos weren’t taken today, they’re from Christmas Day, but thought now was as good a time as any to share them. As I was driving home, I just had to stop and snap a few shots of the peacefully falling snow (prior to the negative 50-degree wind chills hitting the city).

Art Basel Day 2: Scope Art Fair

I basically did zero research on the festival before heading to Miami, so on day 2, I headed to South Beach and decided to check out the SCOPE Art Fair. What I quickly realized was that there were actually several art fairs happening in Miami simultaneously, and Art Basel at the expo center was just … Continue reading
