I just wanted to send you some info about an event I'm coordinating for September 30th! I know you obviously like food and (possibly) beer, so I wanted to send you the details! Also Mirka (Miami Culinary Tours; guide) mentioned how her sister is an artist, so maybe she can participate before we close our artist calls! It's up to her, but if she's interested please let me know and I'll forward her information to the art curator.
The body of the e-mail will contain all the event information! So far we have 18 different styles of Craft Beer, 25 established artists, art activities, and entertainment by DJ Andre Xavier who performed at Wine and Food Festival and Mercedes Benz Fashion week. We are sponsored by Toyota Zinn and we're working on getting a partnership with the Miami Herald. There's A lot more coming, so here's the details so far:
