Art, live music, ethnic food, all at Viernes Culturales

If you haven't gone to Viernes Culturales yet, you should try it. It was years before I came upon it by accident with a friend, we were driving down Calle Ocho one Friday, and wondered what all the crowds were about, we parked the car (free parking, easy to find on the street) and we wandered around. It's a couple of minutes from Coconut Grove, just take SW 17th or 22nd Avenue to SW 8th Street.

There are lots of galleries and art installations, there is live music in the streets. Even one of the cigar rolling shops clears the floor and live music and dancing take over.

Viernes Culturales is back tonight, Friday, June 27 from 7 to 11 pm.  It's a monthly thing, the last Friday of each month. The event is on SW 8th Street (Calle Ocho) from SW 13th Avenue to SW 18th Avenue. You may know some of the aritists and crafts people who are from or who have passed through the Grove at various art shows and Gallery Walks. 

Enjoy the local restaurants and bars. Live performances on the street at the Mobile Micro Theater include Caril Paura at 7:30; Art by Belly Dance/Belly2abs at 9:00 and Orq. Seleccion Latina at 9:30.


It's the 14th anniversary of Dr. Paul George's history walking tours of Little Havana. This month's tour is called "The Near Northwest" and it will take you along 17th Avenue to Flagler Street. Meet in front of Tower Theater (1508 SW 8th Street) at 7 pm. The tour is free. This is their version of the drum circle -- conga drums.

And don't forget to stop in Azucar! the ice cream place. It's right across from the Tower Theater. 

You can see a very long list of events, galleries and more that are all happening in one night here.
