Welcome to the home stretch ladies and gentlemen of, or currently residing in, Miami. Art Basel is reaching its crescendo, and it’s been one for the record books. Day four of our little Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink Cafe experiment came and went yesterday. 120 Grilled Chicken Panini were crisped at 450 degress on the trusty Breville press line, Hedy’s chocolate chunk cookies spilled out of jars and into happy customer mouths, Schwartz poured PJ, water and happiness, Ellie worked the iPad Shopkeep with Cassidy from HQ reservations and Nathaniel tag teaming under Eric Larkee’s watchful, troubleshooting liketysplit supervision, Pharrell gave a talk and a shout, and we documented it all for you here. HQ is rocking and so is Harry’s back at Design District central. All is good in the hood. Hope you are enjoying the fun as much as we are. Take it all in whenever you can this weekend. Make the effort. See a show, even if just one. Or, sparkle plenty. The creativity is brimming, and it’ll all be gone in a flash. As for our world, you’ll find more snapshots of today as well as menu changes per usual on our Twitter/Instagram feed @MGFD_MIA. Tomorrow, we speak with some of the talent at Design Miami/about what being genuine means to their work, and Monday, we continue that theme, this time with our own digital designer Ilysa Corns, as The Cypress Room‘s landing page goes live online. Ciao for now!
