Marlowe, Eric, Steve, Kristine, and I started off our Miami adventure by heading straight into the Design District for a little bit of Art Basel. We were in search of the Rainbow City. It could just be me, but the bunch of us all seem to have a thing for really bright colors. Afterwards we walked around some more while Steve crossed the street about a million times to look at design stores. I feel like I should sneak into their house and take a bunch of pictures to show it off… its incredible, but that’s a whole other post 🙂
After our walk-around we headed back to the car and continued south so I could take everyone to The Beehive. It was one of my favorite places to grab vegan food when I lived in Miami, especially when I was pregnant and hard no energy to cook for myself. As usual it was packed with a ton of people waiting for a seat so we took our food to go and headed to a park to eat. I think everyone was pretty impressed, especially by the vegan chicharones and vegan empanadas. I don’t know why I didn’t snap any photos of The Beehive’s awesomeness– I really, really should have!
Once we consumed our fair share of vegan food we headed to the Raw Vegan Market–thats not so vegan anymore– they sell eggs! I would go to every Saturday for my produce, spices, etc. We all got ice cream and shakes– deliciousness. Jennie stopped by to meet Marlowe and give her a little gift she while traveling Europe. It’s the tiniest little most awesome musical crank.
On the way home I suggested we stop at the Mai-Kai in Fort Lauderdale! Everyone had been there before except for me (and Marlowe) and I’ve really been wanting to check it out. It was pretty neat. Marlowe loveddd it. She was so wide-eyed looking around at all the tiki goods and water features. Marlowe was seriously the best little travel baby around. She was awake a lot of the day, but content and rarely upset. It was so nice to give her a mini tour of Miami. I think she mostly enjoyed the Mai-Kai though 🙂
