Here is a notable case of community and government finding common ground to work in tandem.  It was months ago that Art Basil founders and representatives from the VErestaurant Group sought to extend their participation in Red Dot’s opening night gala with the inclusion of Top Chefs from Brickell Avenue Restaurants to coincide with Art Basel and Art Miami – Dec. 2-6.

In the heart of the Wynwood District satellite art events have popped up like Soho, the early years.  With the glut of traffic has come parking fees that start at an obscene $45.00.

Participating and South Miami Avenue and Brickell Restaurants aligned with transportation driven civic officials have come to the rescue.  By offering free public transportation combined with deeply discounted valet parking relief from the clown-car, gridlock has arrived with input from Metro Dade, City of Miami and Miami Beach departments collaborating.

Two ideas dovetailed and everyone attending Art Basil, Red Dot Fair, Art Basel and Art Miami stand to benefit.  Utilizing public transportation during ArtBasel (considered one of the most important art conflags in the world) will go a long way in reducing  traffic congestion and frayed nerves.  With the vast number of attendees arriving in their private Gulfstream’s and Falcon 2000’s  it is ironic that navigating a block on the ground can take longer than their entire flight.

With an estimated 3-4 billion dollars changing hands  among the 65,000 discriminating art aficionados and collectors ease of movement is tantamount to a successful outcome.  Both jet setters and the hoi polli may soon be co-mingling on one of the metro world’s most advanced downtown public transportation systems.

In addition there is no charge for the breathtaking birds eye views of the City skyline.   Metro Dade’s Transportation plan goes a long way in ameliorating  the loathsome parking problem that has accompanied every Art Basel- Miami  almost since its inception over a decade ago.  By putting our tax dollars to work in a way that everyone benefits – increased restaurant business, extending the geographic reach of Miami Art Week and happier visitors who seek the finest in luxury travel with an authentic twist…assures returning visitors singing the city’s praises.

According to Patrice Gillespie Smith, Community Image Manager Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces and Graham Winick, Film and Event Production Manager Tourism, Cultural and Economic Development states, “We are very excited about Art Week and have been working to provide alternate modes of transportation during the week-long event. The Miami Trolley system will be operating its regular routes during the event with extended hours until 1:30 a.m. on the Biscayne and Brickell Route.  For real-time information on the Miami Trolley Regular Routes, please visit miami.etaspot.net.  Biscayne Route provides service from Brickell to Midtown Miami and Design District.  A smart phone app, Miami Trolley, is also available at the iPhone App Store and the Android Marketplace!

DRINK UP & BE BOLD & EAT WITH GUSTO. “Culinary Art Basil indelibly blurs the line between ‘art appreciation’ and ‘art, as an excuse to eat and imbibe’.   The amusebouches, canapés, cichetti, antipasti, tapas and hors d’oeuvres are meant to evoke sighs of bliss among the guests,” confirms the beguiling Adi Kafri of Noa Catering and Café. Inspired by Israel she and her daughters Nin, Omer and Amit will be doing a star turn with the freshest grilled peppers and braised oriental kale , and lamb and beef schwarma from Grand Western fine meat purveyors.

Signature cocktails by Deep Eddy’s Vodka, Angel’s Envy Bourbon, Papa’s Pilar Rum will be served.  Perfect pairings of Infinium Spirits, Fratelli Branca’s Italian portfolio will also be sampled. Red Dot libations include Chambord Liqueur Beck’s Beer, Pure Swiss Mineral Water, Vita Coco, naturally and Barefoot Wine.

New to Art Basil is a generous contribution of Deep Eddy  Vodka , Sweet Tea, Grapefruit and 80 proof that will complement morsels of Royal Food Distributors Fresh and Tasty Premium Smoked Salmon redolent with dill, and Fresh Harvester Masago  (Black , Orange and Red). Connoisseurs claim Masago  is even better than Beluga.  Tod Webster has been invited to make his home-style magic with Grand Western’s tender lamb lollypops.  Deep Eddys’  infused vodkas are the first flavored vodkas produced in Texas.   Created by Sweet Tea founder Clayton Christopher and Chad Auler of Savvy Vodka-Deep Eddy is ten times distilled and natural with pure cane sugar, clover honey, Texas Spring Water and Black Tea or Grapefruit.

Papa’s Pilar’s is back for an Art Basil repeat performance.  A cask-aged, sipping rum it comes with a time machine included. Inspired and owned, in part, by the Ernest Hemingway’s family, imbibers are transported to a time when the West was ‘wild’ and Hemingway’s deep water vessel, Papa’s Pilar, possessed the same gutsy spirit of this bold and complex rum.  Royalties are earmarked for Florida Reef Restoration.  SoBe Fizz-Red Dot ™ Private Label water will keep Red Dot Fair goers hydrated.

Culinary Art Basil

Another nod to the Italians and Sicilians is the Fratelli Branca tasting It was in 1845 that the Distillery of Fratelli Branca was born.  Art Basil will be presenting their liqueurs par excellence.  The top shelf Fernet –Branca is a melding of 27 herbs, from all five continents with aloe of  South Africa, rhubarb from China, gentian from France, galingale from India or Sri Lanka, chamomile from Italy or Argentina, just to name a few. Flowers, herbs, roots, extracts and teas are blended to produce the beneficial properties.

Proceeds from the Faux Farmer’s Mediterranean Market produced by Teena’s Pride Farms in conjunction with Whole Foods CSA Farm to Table Collective, Redlands Spice Park, Mr. Greens Produce,  Living Green Fresh Market on Commercial Blvd East and Grand Western Meat Purveyors circa 1968 are earmarked for the Green Railroad Organic Work Shop (G.R.O.W.) under the direction of Charles Coiner, Jonathan Roussel, Thi and Bill Squire.  

The trio is taking their inspiration from the ambiance found in a St Tropez Café, a Sicilian Fresh Market, an Aegean Greek Bistro  and a luxurious medina or souk, replete with hand stitched tapestry, hookahs and mosaic inlaid tables by  Peter Hannah’s Vapormones.com.  Backdrops of rural images and ancient towns are inspired by New York photographers Bethany Bandera.
