Miami/Florida On Tuesday, December 3 – between 6-10 pm, an anticipated three-thousand fashionably attired, famished guests will be treated to a sneak preview of seventy galleries exhibiting in the 7th Annual Red Dot Fair’s vast pop-up structure. Located in the heart of Miami’s burgeoning Wynwood Art District, at 3011 NE 1st Ave and NE 31st Street, 333137 the 8th Annual Red Dot Fair will host global Art Galleries and Artists direct from California, Texas, London, Paris, Germany, Russia, China, Japan, Korea, Brazil, South America, South Florida and points in between.

The Art Basil /Red Dot Fair Gala Reception on Tuesday, December 3 is open to the public. The $25.00 admission will be donated, in part, to Red Dot’s favored Foundation Million Trees/ Miami and card holders will gain complimentary entry to Red Dot Fair for the week.
Now in its 7th incarnation, Culinary Art Basil, a jubilant celebration of cuisine and culture, will co-host Red Dot Fair’s opening Gala Reception & Gallery Preview. A member of Art Basil’s nomination committee, Charles Majeski of Advanced Culinary Solutions confirms, “Art Basil is an ad hoc, volunteer association made up of media, marketing, design, photography and culinary professionals. Distinguished chefs are invited to demonstrate the making of delectable dishes that are to be sampled by our guests”.
Arturo and Stephanie Paz, founders of Jarred Events and direct from New York are doing a star turn with their families exquisite granola and sweets. Joining the Paz family is Marco de Simone who trained in his family’s restaurants in Milano where he gained fame creating State Dinners for Mikhail Gorbachev of Green Cross International and ‘naughty, naughty’ Silvio Berlusconi. Announcements of chefs representing Israel /Palestine, Asia, Texas and Latin America will be posted on the artbasil.test’s website up to the day of the event.
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 amuse–bouches, 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.
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.
