How can any social calendar be complete without a Valentine’s Day celebration in February, regardless of whether it’s a party for one, two, or the entire family? So, to help take the guesswork out of “what to do for Valentine’s Day this year?” we’ve put together a list of the top events around town that can help you get started on planning the perfect day:

  • Gilberto Santa Rosa – A day before the big day (Feb. 13), you can catch the “Gentleman of Salsa” performing live at The Fillmore Miami Beach.
  • DIY Valentine Card and Mural Class – Great for those who like to get started early, this DIY art class will take place on February 6. Miami’s own muralist and stencil artist Registered Artist will be leading the class at the WYN 317 Art Gallery. Learn how to create your own stenciled Valentine’s Day card to take home as you munch on love-themed sweets and beverages.
  • To Miami, With LoveThis is a series of pop-up performances by the Miami City of Ballet that will be taking place around town, from January 30 to February 21. On February 13th, you can catch MCB dancer Eric Trope’s headline choreography with a ticket to the Wynwood Walls. And, on February the 14th, you can catch Alaina Andersen’s headlining choreography by RSVP-ing to the Design District’s Palm Court pop-up event.
  • Valentine Partner Yoga Class – Start Valentine’s Day with positivity. Bring along your best friend, lover, or kids to this partner yoga class at the South Pointe Park in Miami Beach from 9 to 11 am. A great way to connect as you tone, stretch, and get limber.
  • Deering Estate Cruise and Concert – This sprawling estate will be the perfect backdrop to a romantic Valentine’s Day Bay cruise and outdoor concert later in the evening. With both events taking place at the Deering Estate, on the 14th, you can easily plan out the day. While the Bay cruise has a morning and afternoon option for a ride on their 45-foot Corinthian catamaran, the concert under the moonlight will feature performances by Leesa Richards and Melinda Rose plus a decadent picnic basket or dinner and dessert of choice.
  • Concerts and Sweet Delights at the Fairchild Gardens – With a choice of three great concerts, you can choose to enjoy the Valentine’s Day Concert with BITA for adults only, its family-friendly version, or a concert with Vic Kingsley for your dog date. 

You could also choose to indulge your sweet tooth while admiring the beauty of nature with their Sweetest Stroll event taking place on the 13th and 14th.

  • Vizcaya Late: Valentine’s  - A great choice for those looking for a low-key Valentine’s date, head to the Vizcaya for a tour of the Main House at twilight, live music, and last-minute gift options with your ticket purchase.

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...

Real Estate News The Top 10 Tallest Buildings in Miami (You Can Live In)
If you’ve been visiting Miami over the years, one thing you’ve probably noticed is the buildings keep getting taller, and the skyline keeps growing. 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. So, who can claim the title of Miami’s tallest building you can call home? Check out our list below of the top 10 Tallest Condo Buildings in Miami – present and under construction – if you like to live above it all.

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...

Fort Lauderdale’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: May 2021
Real Estate News Fort Lauderdale’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: May 2021
The South Florida real estate market is experiencing an unprecedented buying boom fueled by the normalization of work-from-home practices, the idea of a better quality of life near the ocean and as scores of new businesses are relocating here. And developers across Fort Lauderdale and Miami are responding. As inventory has steadily dropped for the last two quarters, pre-construction projects are the next product to see a surge in demand and developers are responding by stepping up progress. This May, developers at Fort Lauderdale’s Harbors Edge reported a 70% sell-out in just 2 months after launching sales. Related Group’s Solemar is speeding through for a 2021 delivery.
