Wow! If we didn’t already have plans, I would definitely be taking my mom to this farm lunch. Mom, if you’re reading, sorry we didn’t find out about this sooner – maybe next year!
The price is flexible and can either include transportation for $155, or if you drive yourself to the farm in Homestead, the lunch is $30.
I found out about the event through Slow Food Miami, but it is not a Slow Food sponsored event.

I’m always finding new blogs and websites, and this one has really caught my eye. It’s TriniGourmet run by Sarina Nicole. She’s Trinidadian Jamaican and “of the Jewish persuasion,” in her words. Love it! In the past week she has written about Trini Corn Soup, a Roti Shop in Miami, and Tu B’shevat.

Need even more motivation to pre-purchase your tickets to the Food and Wine Festival? They’ve just announced that when you purchase your tickets to the South Beach Diet’s Fun and Fit as a Family ($20), they will donate to the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti Relief and Recovery Efforts. Here’s what they sent me:
“In an effort to help victims of the earthquake in Haiti, the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine has announced that it will donate 100% of the gross advance tickets sales from the South Beach Diet presents Fun and Fit as a Family event at Jungle Island to the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti Relief and Recovery Efforts. Bring your family out for two days of interactive food labs, culinary demonstrations, food sampling, fitness activities and much more at South Beach Diet presents Fun and Fit as a Family and support those in need in Haiti at the same time. Click here to help!”
Want to donate directly? Here are some organizations that I think are doing the best they can and will put your donations to good use:

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.

Here’s a link to info about a new piece I’ve been working on: dreams (sueños). It’s a short film that I think of as a visual poem in three parts. It is about the negotiation of the neighboring cities of Miami and Havana, both physically and politically. It will be in the show, Space is the Place, this summer at Diaspora Vibe Gallery, in Miami.

You need a day off like mac needs cheese. Get it. Now. Describe in 50 words or less how you’d spend your ideal day off. The editors’ favorite entrant will then live out his or her perfect day, courtesy of Samsung Glyde (the winner gets the phone, too). Wit, desperation, honesty — the approach is up to you. On your mark, get set, go!
