Over the Weekend - Gloria Estefan, Miami International Wine Fair, and M.A.N.D.Y.
This weekend was a bust for us on a personal level. We spent it under our sheet chugging down Robitussin and coughing up things seen only in horror movies. So we lived vicariously through the weekend posts done by the various New Times staff writers. We are just glad we are feeling better in time for Halloween.
Gloria Estefan at Seminole Hard Rock Live
After an uneven European tour, Gloria Estefan returned to South Florida on Saturday to feel the love from her hometown. Two dollars of every ticket sold went to fund education in South Florida, but considering the cost of a ticket ($95-250), we think the attempt was pretty worthless. Click here for the full review.
Miami International Wine Fair at Miami Beach Convention Center
We weren't entirely too impressed with the wine fair, not because of the selection, but because once you've been to one, you've sort of been to them all. One highlight, though, was the selection of Miami wines. Click to read the full recap.
M.A.N.D.Y. at Circa 28
If there is any event we are sad we missed this weekend, it was M.A.N.D.Y.'s DJ set at Circa 28 Saturday night. We missed the Berlin duo during Winter Music Conference after we passed out from exhaustion, and after given a second chance, we were too sick to attend. Click here to view the full slideshow.
Oktoberfest at Bayfront Park
Perhaps it was the recession that kept crowds away from the Oktoberfest celebration at Bayfront Park. The prices were steep, but somebody's got to pay the performers. Click here to read our recap.
