Wednesday's Best Art Basel Events: Wynwood Radio Live, Gypsy, and the Sugar Roller Coaster

Sure, Art Week in Miami has been going on since Monday. But Wednesday is the day things really kick into high gear, with events all over town forcing you to make Sophie's Choice-esque decisions about where and how to spend our free time.

Will you have more fun on the beach, checking out free public sculptures and being among the first visitors to new fairs like Untitled? Or should you head to the mainland instead to ride the Sugar & Gomorrah roller coaster and steal a peek at Banksy's hijacked street art?

Just one thing is clear: You can't do both, because traffic between South Beach and Midtown is going to be a beast.
