    Cream Doral Grand Opening 4/27/19


    Cream Doral Grand Opening
    Saturday, 04/27/2019 – 12:00 am – 12:00 am
    CREAM DORAL
    9715 NW 41 Street,
    Doral, Florida 33178
    Website
    Cost: FREE

    With various locations on the map, including stores in Boca Raton, Pembroke Pines and Weston, CREAM will now add Doral to its locator map. The new location will host a grand opening on April 27, 2019 from 12:00 NOON to 12 MIDNIGHT. The festivities will include FREE Handcrafted & Warm Ice Cream Sandwiches from Opening until 7PM and a ribbon cutting ceremony including Doral Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez and Doral Council, Bravo TV’s Richie Skye, renowned artist Carlos A. Navarro, and Revolution 93.5 radio personality Natalia Radziuk. The store is located at: 9715 NW 41 Street, Doral, Florida 33178.

    Doral is one of thirty-four municipalities in Miami Dade county, and is located just one mile from Miami International Airport. An area that has become known for commerce, tourists, and families only makes sense for a brand like CREAM. The “fan-favorite” plans to share the deliciousness (ice cream sandwiches) with the local Doral community.

    CREAM, which stands for ‘Cookies Rule Everything Around Me’, serves handcrafted and warm ice cream sandwiches, as well as other delicious creations including scoops, sundaes, tacos, milkshakes, floats and more using super-premium, proprietary flavored ice cream and cookies. Founded in 2010, the brand goal since the first store opened, was to provide families and ice cream enthusiasts with a tasty, one-of-a-kind ice cream sandwich. After all, who doesn’t love fresh baked cookies paired with thick and creamy ice cream? This is one of the main brand pillars. Freshness all the way.

    Although CREAM started with cookie ice cream sandwiches, the brand evolved, to satisfy fans and a wide audience of discerning palates. The development of ice cream sandwiches using brownies, do’sants, and fresh off the griddle waffles came to be, served in different variations and flavors enjoyed today in all the menu items from “scoop to shake”! For those wanting to take the CREAM experience to the home, office or special event, CREAM also offers catering.

    This April 27th, CREAM fans can stop by, and enjoy a signature warm ice cream sandwich (on the house) from 12:00 Noon until 7:00PM, in a fun and relaxing atmosphere, right in the heart of Doral. Following that, from 7:30PM onward, guests can purchase for the full CREAM menu.

    The CREAM Doral grand opening will take place on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 12:00 NOON- 12:00 MIDNIGHT at 9715 NW 41 Street, Doral, Florida 33178. *Media and Bloggers can enjoy an all-day invite on Thursday April 25, 2019 to come in at their leisure for a complimentary CREAM item. For media, blogger RSVP and partnership inquiries, please contact: lmsantana@creativasgroup.com.

    TURKUAZ 4/27/19

    TURKUAZ
    Saturday, 04/27/2019 – 07:00 pm – 11:00 pm
    North Beach Bandshell
    7275 Collins Ave,
    Miami Beach, Florida 33141
    Buy Tickets
    Cost: 22.00

    Turkuaz at the North Beach Bandshell is presented by Live For Live Music in partnership with GMP Live and the Rhythm Foundation.

    Opening set by Afrobeta.

    Energetic splashes of funk, alternative, rock, R&B, and psychedelia color the music of Turkuaz. Balancing male-female harmonies, strutting guitars, wild horn arrangements, and interminable grooves, this spirit takes shape in the color donned by each respective member on stage nightly via larger-than-life performances.

    The Brooklyn-based nonet —Dave Brandwein [guitar, vocals], Taylor Shell [bass], Craig Brodhead [guitar, keys], Michelangelo Carubba [drums], Chris Brouwers [trumpet, keys], Greg Sanderson [tenor sax], Josh Schwartz [baritone sax, vocals], Sammi Garett [vocals], and Shira Elias [vocals]—ignite an explosion of energy punctuated by neon hues, deft musicality, and show-stopping sing-alongs on their fifth full-length album, Life In The City.

    The album, which includes co-production work from Jerry Harrison of The Talking Heads, sees the band stretch their sonic palette and cover new ground lyrically as they grapple with reality and get personal, finding the light in what can sometimes be a dark world. Yet even in the midst of serious subject matter creeping in on this album, the musicianship of all nine band members and the group’s upbeat, fun-loving sensibility still shines through to give Turkuaz fans the joyous sound they’ve come to know over the last several years.

    Your ticket comes with a free subscription to The New Tropic, Miami’s essential newsletter.

    The FIU Revamp Project Unveiling + Celebration Powered by Redbull 4/19/19

    The FIU Revamp Project Unveiling + Celebration Powered by Redbull

    Cost:

    Red Bull partnered with American Social Bar and Kitchen to give 28 students an opportunity to participate in a landmark initiative that will showcase their world-class design insight at one of Miami’s most popular establishments. The students are part of the University’s renowned FIU: By Design and the Department of Interior Architecture program.

    REVAMP, powered by Red Bull, gave the interior designers-in-training the chance to use their imaginations in redesigning the bar at American Social Bar and Kitchen’s location in Brickell. The seven teams, comprised of four students each, worked on a three-week Design Charette.

    Throughout the three weeks, each team developed their ideas into a series of design proposals that were presented at different stages of the Design Charette. The final goal of the Charette was to reimagine the bar, with a chance to have it build out at the Brickell establishment.

    “This is the first time our students have participated in a project for an actual client so early in their studies,” said Katie Rothfield, Senior Instructor, FIU Interior Architecture Department. “It is an incredible opportunity for the students to merge design theory with its practical application, and there is nothing more exciting than seeing your designs come to life. We are eager to see our students’ design proposals, and we look forward to the unique experience of working with Red Bull and American Social.”

    REVAMP kicked off at the beginning of the Fall semester with an on campus meeting on August 23, 2018, throughout the project, students gained first-hand knowledge and experience in every step of the design process, from initial client meetings to the development of detailed drawings, equipment specifications, to the presentation of their final design proposals. American Social leadership briefed students on their initial vision, general project parameters and guidelines for a successful implementation.

    Elected Officials and Business Leaders Unveil Anti-Fracking Art Installation

    Elected officials, Hialeah business leaders, and local artists will present an art installation at the Leah Arts District to demonstrate the threats of oil fracking

    Hialeah, FL — On Thursday, April 18th, local South Florida elected officials, business owners, artists, and residents will gather at the iconic 20ft flamingo mural in the Leah Arts District to unveil a new art installation to demonstrate the threats of oil and gas development near the Hialeah aquifer. Concerned residents will also present sweeping support for banning fracking among local elected officials and business owners in Hialeah and Miami Lakes. A recent court approval to drill for oil in the Everglades sparked outrage over the prospect of drilling and fracking in the Everglades a few miles from Miami’s drinking water sources, leading to this public demonstration.

    House Speaker José R. Oliva recently stated that he would vote in support of banning fracking. Residents will discuss the legislation to ban fracking that has been filed in the State Legislature. House Bill 7029 to ban fracking has passed multiple House Committees. Speakers will discuss the loophole present in the bill that would allow fracking using matrix acidizing.

    What: No Cafe con Fracking Press Conference
    When: Thursday, April 18th at 11 AM
    Where: Leah Arts District, 1000 E 15st Hialeah, FL
    Who: Hialeah Councilman Paul B. Hernandez, City of Hialeah

    Funcionarios Electos y Líderes Empresariales Develan Instalación De Arte Anti-Fracking

    Funcionarios electos, líderes empresariales de Hialeah y artistas locales presentarán una instalación artística en el Distrito de Artes de Leah para exponer las amenazas del fracking

    Hialeah, FL — El jueves 18 de abril, funcionarios locales electos del sur de la Florida, dueños de negocios, artistas y residentes se reunirán en el icónico mural de flamencos de 20 pies en el Distrito de Artes de Leah para presentar una nueva instalación artística que expone las amenazas de los procesos para el petróleo y gas cercanos al acuífero de Hialeah. Los alarmados residentes también mostrarán el extenso apoyo con que se cuenta entre los funcionarios locales y los dueños de negocios en Hialeah y Miami Lakes para prohibir el fracking. Una reciente aprobación judicial que considera la perforación y fracking en los Everglades, a pocos kilómetros de distancia de las fuentes de agua potable de Miami, causó indignación y condujo a esta manifestación pública.

    El presidente de la Cámara, José R. Oliva, declaró recientemente que votaría a favor de prohibir el fracking. Los residentes también discutirán la legislación para prohibir el fracking que se ha presentado en la Legislatura del Estado. El Proyecto de Ley de la Cámara de Representantes 7029 que busca prohibir el fracking, ha sido aprobado por varios comités de la Cámara. Los oradores discutirán el vacío presente en el proyecto de ley que permitiría el uso de está técnica utilizando la acidificación de la matriz.

    Qué: Conferencia de Prensa No Cafe con Fracking
    Cuándo: Jueves 18 de abril a las 11 AM
    Dónde: Distrito de Arte Leah, 1000 E 15st Hialeah, FL

    Nicole Henry is one of the jazz world’s most acclaimed vocalists, possessing a potent combination of dynamic vocal abilities, impeccable phrasing, and powerful emotional resonance.

    Her passionate, soulful voice and heartfelt charisma has earned her a Soul Train Award for “Best Traditional Jazz Performance,” and three Top-10 U.S. Billboard and HMV Japan jazz albums. Heralded by The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Japan Times, El Pais, Jazz Times, Essence and more, Ms. Henry tells real stories through unparalleled interpretations of repertoire from the American Songbook, classic and contemporary jazz, popular standards, blues and originals.

    She has captivated audiences in over 20 countries, headlining at venues in New York, Tokyo, Madrid, Moscow, Paris, Shanghai, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Miami.

    “The obvious forerunner to Ms. Henry…is the younger Natalie Cole, to whose style she adds a coating of brass.” – Stephen Holden, NY Times
