The Herald Hunt, that is. November 29 at 12 PM kicks off the Herald Hunt at the Adrienne Arsht Center in downtown Miami. I have done this hunt in the past, which involves a series of puzzles and clues that lead teams throughout the city, and it is tough. There are some great prizes, but most people play for the fun of exploring the city in a new way.
All you need to do is pick up a copy of the Sunday paper and meet at the Arsht Center for a fun adventure.

Sleepless Night takes over Miami Beach again this year on November 7, 2009. It will go from sunset on the 7th to daybreak on the 8th- approximately 13 hours of art, installations, performances, and public interaction.
With so much to see I will have to take some time to map out what I want to get to. I’ll be helping Dinorah de Jesus Rodriguez set up for Elusive Landscape at the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, so definitely put that one on your list. She’ll be animating the space with her hand-crafted films. I also hear that Momentum Dance Company dancers may make an appearance there.
Here’s the general info from Sleepless Night’s website:
“From 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 7, 2009, until 7:00 a.m. the next morning, Miami Beach will stay up all night with more than 150 free arts and entertainment events presented at 80 different locations throughout the city. Over 100,000 people of all ages will enjoy free museum admissions, indoor and outdoor art installations and performances, architectural tours, dance (and dancing,) theater, music, slam poetry, film, video, fashion, acrobatics, comedy and more, including several unique collaborations and South Florida and world premieres. The City of Miami Beach collaborates with every cultural institution in the city, and with numerous other organizations, businesses and individuals to ensure that Audi Sleepless Night includes all aspects and points of view of what we collectively call “the arts.” Free shuttle buses with onboard arts programming connect the four zones of activity and remote parking for the full 13-hour night.”

In the process they have made significant political, economic and cultural contributions to the city. Black Crossroads: The African Diapsora in Miami explores the enduring presence and impact
of African-Americans, Africans, black Caribbeans and black Hispanics on Miami.

PERFORMANCE, WORKSHOPS & SLAM
FOR GAY, LESBIAN, BISEXUAL & TRANSGENDER YOUTH
JOIN us for a weeklong residency with nationally recognized Jamaican lesbian spoken word poet STACEYANN CHIN that includes workshops and an open mic for GLBT youth. Chin’s poetry is a bracing, no-holds-barred yet tender examination of her own life and the world around her that locates itself at the complex intersection of sexual, gender and racial identities. She co-wrote and performed in the Tony Award-nominated Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam and presented her own one-woman shows Off-Broadway.
