The SOBE Wine and Food Festival is current underway, down in Florida’s Miami Beach area.  Supported by sponsorships from The Food Network, Food and Wine Magazine, and American Express, among other companies, this four-day event  (Thursday through Sunday, February 23-26) promises to be a gastronomical extravaganza, catering to culinary enthusiasts and wine connoisseurs alike.  While many events, such as The Flavors of Flay presented by Certified Angus Beef–a thorough sampling of Chef Bobby Flay’s restaurant empire–are sold out, you can still score tickets to numerous SOBE Wine and Food festival events.

So if you live in South Florida and want a last-minute weekend activity, or if you are willing to do the necessary travel at the drop of the hat, consider one or several of these attractions. Read More

Miami’s Art Basel (and Art Walk) on a Budget

If it’s not already evident, here on MarcusSamuelsson.com, we love everything art and food and just this past weekend was one of the greatest times of the year in Miami, Florida for both of those things- Art Basel! For those of you unfamiliar with this great event, Art Basel is the most prestigious International Art Shows in the Americas. Each year over than 200 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa flock to the shores of Miami to showcase works by more than 2,000 artists of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Hundred of art galleries open their doors for the weekend to show off new innovative and evocative exhibits and collections; graffiti artists set up on the streets and put up murals within hours for all to see; and food trucks galore invade the design district to feed the hungry masses. It’s an art and food-lover’s dream weekend!

While the main show goes on under the roof of the Miami Beach Convention Center, a one-day ticket can cost you $40 with additional fees for special exhibits and shows, and being that it’s a four-day event, you may not want to shell out that kind of cash, especially this close to the holidays. But with so many galleries and event happenings throughout the weekend, you can totally experience the full force of Art Basel with little to no cash at all- if you know where to go. Read More
