Flavors of the Past
As any local knows, Miami isn’t only beaches, nice cars, and bad fashion choices. This city has a rich cultural background that begs to be explored. The fourth-annual Taste of Historic Downtown offers a walking architectural tour of downtown Miami’s most unique sites, with complimentary cocktails and fun along the way.
The tour kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday with check-in and tasty local food at the Ingraham Building (25 SE Second Ave.). Participants can enjoy mojitos and Cuban jazz at La Epoca Department Store; a look at Miami’s first Roman Catholic parish, Gesu Church; and cocktails with Capone at the Bank Lounge (139 NE First St.), where Al Capone stashed his riches in the 1920s.
Advance tickets cost $35, which includes wine, cocktails, food, and admission to the VIP afterparty. Tickets purchased at the door the day of the event cost $45. Call 305-379-7070 or visit downtownmiami.com.
