Reflections of Taste Jamaica at #SoBeWFF on 2/21/20

This year for the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, we attended the Friday night party at the National Hotel called Taste Jamaica. And, wow, we did! This was easily one of the best events we have been to in a long time. There was a good crowd, but the lines for food were not too long. It was plentiful and quickly served. All of it was so good, we could not pick favorites. Hopefully they will bring it back for next year!

Reflections of Miami Rum Congress 2020 on 2/8/20

The Miami Rum Congress 2020 hosted more than twenty experts from the rum industry. There were seminars about the latest topics in the fields of distillery, premiumization, and cocktail culture. This is a show for real aficionados. The most exciting part, of course, was the grand tasting, where you could try dozens of different Rums from all over the world. Tastings are one of our favorite activities because it gives you a chance to find new favorites at minimal expense. We had an awesome time and definitely discovered some flavors we will be adding to our list! If you missed it this year, definitely keep an eye on Soul Of Miami for news about next year.

We attended the 31st Festival of Chefs at Jungle Island on Wednesday, November 13th from 6:30 – 10:30. This was, by far, one of the best organized events we have ever attended. It was easy to move around the floor and get to the food tastings. Plenty of delicious food to try. Lots of delightful attendees of all ages, from young professionals to experienced executives. If you are choosing your fundraisers to attend for 2020, we can highly recommend adding this one to your list.

The exclusive exhibit celebrates the 50-Year Anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing with a global debut of forty never-before-seen photos from the historic missions between 1955 and 1994. Among the exhibition is the first and original photograph developed of the Neil Armstrong Footprint on the Moon. A private collector in Miami Beach has acquired the most complete vintage photo collection of original prints developed from the NASA lunar missions.

The month-long exhibition, entitled “Space-Time Continuum,” will be held at the iconic Continuum residences in Miami Beach, from October 24 to November 24. The exclusive exhibit is curated by one of the most private art collectors, Rudolf Budja, based in Miami Beach. The forty photographs have been selected from the complete NASA photo collection of 8,000 pictures acquired by Budja himself, that is now part of his personal archive at Rudolf Budja Gallery in Miami Beach. The complete collection obtained by Budja remains under copyright by NASA.

Each photograph in the collection includes the original typed description of the image by NASA on the back, the date the photograph was taken, the respective mission, together with a stamp of authenticity given by NASA administration. Thousands of photos that were not framed by NASA over the decades are under lock-and-key at Rudolf Budja Gallery, and contained within several dozen binders that were used by NASA to preserve the integrity of each image.

The “Space-Time Continuum” exhibition will be shown from October 24th to November 24th at the Continuum, located at 50 South Pointe Drive in Miami Beach, Florida. Viewing appointments may be made through Rudolf Budja Gallery by calling 786.556.6685 or by emailing Budja@me.com.
