7 Must-Do Pre-Halloween Events

Oct 13, 2016 October 13, 2016

I know Halloween’s around the corner and it’s a given it will be the highlight of everyone’s social calendar. Miami’s Fall calendar is full of exciting events and here’s the low-down on how you can enjoy the run up to Halloween 2016:

1. Petite Artist: Hooray for Halloween! - Oct. 16, 10 AM
We’re getting into the Halloween spirit early with a spooktacular event benefitting the Miami Children’s Health Foundation. Get your “Petite Artist” over to Genius Jones in Edgewater for a local holiday art project. There’ll be arts and crafts, raffles, refreshments, a photobooth, gift bags and more for an exciting, family-friendly weekend. Sponsor HB Roswell Realty (that’s us) will bring the supplies. Along with 6 other amazing local vendors, so all you have to bring along is your tiny tot and an open heart. Reserve your spot on eventbrite.

2. Deering Estate’s Wine on Harvest Moon – Oct. 15, 7:30 PM
Celebrate the Harvest Moon with fine wine, food and art served under the golden lunar rays. In its 15th year, this annual event will be held on the lush 444-acre Deering Estate on the edge of Biscayne Bay. This year’s theme promises a “culinary safari through South Africa”. Expect crisp South African wines, local chefs whipping up their best, a high-end auction benefitting the estate as well as musical and theatrical vignettes served up against the magical setting of an environmental preserve. Tickets start $175 per person.

3. Chapman Partnership Illuminations Gala – Oct. 15, 7 PM
For a more formal event honoring those making a difference in the life of the homeless, the Illuminations Gala comes to JW Marriott Marquis. There’ll be dining, dancing and live entertainment as gratitude for the tireless work put in by volunteers and donors. Tickets cost $600.

4. South Beach Seafood Festival – Oct. 20-22, 12 PM
Kick-off annual Stone Crab season with a trip down to the South Beach Seafood Festival at Lummus Park. This deliciously luxurious dining experience on the beach features finger-licking seafood with more than 60 menu items reeling you in for seconds. Find an excess of stone crab, with shrimp tacos, lobster tempura skewers, mahi sliders, oysters, gyros and much more at this SoBe seafood fest. Along with top chefs and restaurants will be live music, mixology demos, a health village, kids zone and sports bar for endless fun. Regular tickets are $35, but you’ll need to shell out $150 for a VIP experience.

5. Kitetober Fest at Haulover Park – Oct. 23, 12 PM
Look to the skies at Haulover Park for a colorful display of creativity and wonder. Expect the likes of a 30-foot Nemo fish, 100-foot squid, 150-foot rainbow and more flying overhead at this annual fest. Bring your own or buy a ready-made kite, compete with kids/adults your own age or sit back to enjoy the view - it’s a free for all at this vibrant festival. Live music, food and refreshments make it a great way to enjoy a lazy fall Sunday.

6. City Bikes Ironman 70.3 Miami – Oct. 23, 7:25 AM

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Ever since the FAA relaxed its height restrictions more than six years ago, Miami’s skyline has continued to elevate itself with glimmering designs of glass and light. The tallest residential building in Miami as of this post is the apartment highrise Panorama Tower at 828 feet. But that won’t last for long. Every few months, a new condo tower is announced with ambitions of becoming one of Miami’s tallest buildings.  Call them #supertowers, #supertalls, or #skyscrapers, they’re definitely building the city’s skyline, reputation, and luxury living to new heights.

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
