Wynwood real estate in this part of town is experiencing growth and Metro 1 Properties is experiencing just as much growth. Making its way to the top of Miami New Times event list, events are hosting the best of Miami’s emerging urban funk culture.
Straight from Coney Island Tour Churchill’s Pub 5501 NE 2nd Ave.
Los Bastardos Magnificos will be playing at Churchill’s Pub on November 14, 2012 at 9pm. If you’re not familiar with the group, their music is reminiscent of a time when moonshine, speak-easy’s, banjos, and denim overalls reigned supreme over ex-swamp Miami. For $5-$10, you can take a step back in time, slap your knee and clap your hands to the music of this Southern group.
Tony Goldman Tribute Wynwood Walls 2550 NW 2nd Ave.
The late Tony Goldman had a vision of an outdoor museum – a place where the average person can be surrounded by art as he or she waited for the bus or shopped for groceries. Jessica Goldman, Tony Goldman’s daughter and working partner stated to Miami New Times, “A lot of what has happened in this city can be attributed to him,” she continued, “Art Basel, and art itself, is something that he was extremely passionate about. We felt it very important to take that torch and keep it burning bright.” This event is free and open to the public.
