America being the multi-cultural melting pot of diversity and tolerance that it is, ensures that just about any international holiday is cause for celebration. Want to get wild and hit the bubbly for Bastille Day (July 14th)—done! Or perhaps, you prefer to get explicit and do some “ouzo-bombs” in honor of Greek Independence Day (March 25th). Whatever the occasion, America is the undisputed facilitator of revelry—especially in concerns to our dear neighbors in Mexico!
Though undoubtedly muddled in the memory banks of countless Americans, the actual history of Cinco de Mayo has taken a backseat to the margaritas, tequila, and salsa specials inherently associated with it. Though what better way to commemorate the unlikely Mexican victory over the French (circa 1862) than with some good old fashioned debauchery?

As the sweltering heat of summer and fall subsides, winter emerges once again, and with it, the inaugural Miami Music Festival. From December 10-12, the young and active will be able to venture out of their air-conditioned dwellings and take to the scenic, tree-lined streets of Brickell Avenue. No directions to the event will be needed; the blast of melodies pouring from amplifiers and echoes of enthusiastic crowds will guide you to Miami’s greatest offering of live entertainment this year.
The three-day extravaganza will host 600 performances on 25 stages. Four large tents will be assembled as the centerpiece and various clubs and restaurants will be rockin’ out for the duration of the festival. Participating watering holes include Transit Lounge, Tobacco Road, Waxy O’Connors and Hard Rock Café, each with multiple stages, and many other hot spots in the area will host performers. You may hear some familiar jams throughout the neighborhood, but it’s just as likely that you’ll come across original bands, exotic and underground, laying down progressions as crispy as a new pair of loafers. The festival represents our fusion of culture here in Miami and boasts world-touring rock, latin, jazz, hip-hop, indie and caribbean artists. The list of featured bands will be available soon at MiamiMusicFestival.org.
