Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

A four-day event featuring Miami Modern architecture and style begins this week and runs through the weekend. There will be music, including a DJ set by Fred Schneider of the B-52s, at the American Legion Hall just off Biscayne Boulevard. 

The event will also include art shows, workshops, and "a swankadelic experience for modern minds."

Best event: a cocktail crawl on Friday that will visit Mimo gems on Miami Beach and present the weird wonderful history of that era. For a full schedukle of events, look at the end of this post or follow this link.
