Miami's art fair week 2009 saw a world of pedestrians on the streets of Wynwood; and where there're tourists, there's money, so no surprise that enterprising mobile BBQs left a trail of rib-smoke all weekend.
Friday night, we found Chicken-N-Ribs on the Southeast corner of 22nd Street and NW First Place across the street from a busy all night auto shop that's been in several rap music videos, and a mural production in progress.
It was around 1 a.m. that a mix of local customers, out of towners, artists, photogs, walkers, watchers, riders, and others eased through the urban rhythms of the night.
