DJs from the Vagabond as well as Bahamian jam and Latin rock bands will set the soundtrack while local artists showcase their work. Hialeah-born street artist Aholsniffsglue will be in attendance along with will cartoon expressionist David LEBO LeBatard and Miamis Oliver Sanchez, who last year created Bordello Bodega, a convenience store/social club outside his NE First Court studio. At Design & Dine, models will don cocktail dresses with Lolita-esque ruffles by Shumaq, the Barrantes sisters fashion label, while 25 bistros, bakeries, and cafés will supply grub for tasting. And with an open bar and a free afterparty at the Vagabond, the designing and dining might go all night. Tickets cost $20 presale or $30 at the door, with proceeds benefiting Hands On Miami.
