So, since we last spoke . . .
The Bookstore, after lots of grief, moved around the block to the former Mezzanotte/ Cielo space. It's quite nice there, very upscale. Palm Produce moved to the second floor of CocoWalk, where FYE, the music store was, and they made part of the store a Pan Am museum. It's quite cool with actual Pan Am items in the store, there's a galley (kitchen) from a 747, engine parts, collectibles, and my favorite, a first class cabin set up, where you can sit and take photos. It's sort of a little movie set.
Out of Africa is still at the Mayfair Promenade, just a few doors down. The Antique Market has vacated their space at the Promenade and the dealers have dispersed. My friends, John and Niki have opened a vintage clothing and jewelry store in downtown Miami at 108 S. Miami Avenue called Fashion Evolution, not too far from here, a block from Flagler Street, near Macys.
The Herald is reporting on the fiasco at the Grove Waterfront where another RFP went out for the Scotty's Land area. The Herald has really been on top of the Grove, they have also reported on the new Grand Bay structures that are planned for the old space. And they ran my story on the Pan Am museum here.
The New Times has reported on the foreclosure of the Coconut Grove Playhouse. Sad.
