Perfect weekend weather for the arts festivals
You couldn't order up more perfect weather for this weekend's Coconut Grove Arts Festival and St. Stephen's Art Show. It's been so beautiful out and the crowds seem to be larger than in previous years. Saturday had a huge crowd.
The usual art, food and fun is in Center Grove, there is something for everyone, even if you're not into the art, you'll love it if you're a people watcher.
Gigi Levya and Siri Lek Cerber visited at the Atchana's East/West booth outside the Mutiny Hotel.
Right outside the Mutiny's front door was a little jazz band from the New World School of the Arts. Excellent.
Our friend Larry Shane was showing, and selling, his classic Miami photographer. Larry specializes in locals that are now gone from our world like images of the Orange Bowl, Tobacco Road or Fox's Sherrin Inn or Miami Marine Stadium, which hopefully will come back soon.
We ate a lot, didn't drink that much, and enjoyed one of our favorites - English Tea and scones with clotted cream at the English Tea Room at St. Stephen's.
Hope you can make it out Sunday and/or Monday. It's a once in a year event that really takes over Coconut Grove and shows off the village at it's best. Both shows run from 10 am to 6 pm.
