Eight Things Miami Hates About Art Basel
Photo by Laurie Charles Parties, colorful characters, and art everywhere: what's not to love about Basel? A lot of things, actually.
It was Art Basel Miami Beach weekend and Uncle Luke was set to host last week's edition of Peachfuzz at The Garret, one of many Basel-themed bashes that went down this weekend.
And even though it was the reason for bringing Luke to one of Miami's best hipster clubs (and many other world-class artists, celebrities, and parties to the 305 this past week), there are just some things about the art fest that drive us locals off the wall.
As the crowd drank up Stella Artois, puffed thick clouds of smoke into the air, and dropped their asses to the floor to DJ Fashen and DZA's mash-up of old-school hip-hop tunes, the party people at The Garret revealed what makes them cringe during ABMB.
Here are eight things the Magic City hates about Basel.

"Hype Beasts" and Crackheads
"Those people who pretend to like art, but really don't," is what Solomon Naar hates about Basel.
"The crackheads," interrupted Naar's friend.
"Where do you find them?"
"On the beach," he laughed.
"No but for real," Naar continued, "You know, those hype beasts that jump on the art bandwagon?"
Oh, you mean these guys?
Yeah, bro, I'm so fucking artsy. Wait, who the hell is Agustina Woodgate and WTF are those mutated stuffed animals doing on that rug? Is this some sorta voodoo shit or something?
Yeah, we know them all too well.
