Is it just coincidence that Cinco de Mayo and the "supermoon" arrive on the same exact day, May 5, as the upcoming Coconut Grove Gallery Walk? Or is it some weird Grove conspiracy to turn City of Miami officials into werewolves, infect them with Montezuma's Revenge, or both -- thereby allowing Grove-ites, during the ensuing chaos, to regain the independence they lost in 1925?
Okay, so it is just a coincidence. There is a Grove Gallery Walk every first Saturday of every month from 7 to 10 p.m., during which Coconut Grove's various galleries will offer hors d'oeuvres, refreshments and even live music. David Collins, executive director of the Coconut Grove Business Improvement District, which co-sponsors the event, thinks the Cinco de Mayo-supermoon alignment will make the upcoming Grove Gallery Walk a memorable and unusual one. But then again, Collins says, every Grove Gallery Walk is unusual.
"This is not a real conservative town's gallery walk," Collins says. "Sometimes there is performance art, there are musicians coming in and out, anything can happen."
