Photographs from the Design Your Own Big One Competition by Mr Q 305

Judging is not easy… I was invited to participate in the judging of the “Design your own Big Oneâ„¢ Competition” at the Grand Opening Block Party of the newly enhanced Sgt. Peppers Subs in Palmetto Bay. The food was great but picking a winner was tough.

Sgt. Peppers Subs is known for great, delicious subs, sandwiches, salads etc. served in a café-style environment, they also offer wine, beer and free wi-fi to boot.

The panel consisted of four judges: The honorable Shelly Stanczyk, Mayor of the City of Palmetto Bay, Sef Gonzalez from the Burger Beast, Alex Peña, owner of Steve’s Pizza and myself.

Three sandwiches made the final elimination round: Havana Pork, Beef Asiago and Fresa Strawberry. All were excellent sandwiches. The Asiago Beef won the top honors although Sef and I both agreed that the Fresa Strawberry had tremendous potential (I would’ve never dreamed of putting strawberries and avocados in a sandwich format, adding goat cheese to the mix gave it that extra notch which was totally unexpected…outstanding!).

As part of the winning entry prize the Beef Asiago sub will be added to the Sgt. Peppers Subs menu and will remain in it for a year.

This party was the perfect way to spend a beautiful Miami afternoon in a great family friendly event which had entertainment for everyone.

Contemporary art exhibits, one-time only art performances and site-specific installations are certain to awaken one’s senses when ArtSoBay opens on Saturday, Feb.18 at the Deering Estate at Cutler. Uniquely alternative experiences are created for the viewer when sound, taste, smell and touch are integrated into the artists’ messages. The unconventional day and evening art event is a highlight of the annual SoBay Festival of the Arts, a two-week celebration (Feb. 14-26) of visual, literary, and performing art collaborations.

Participating artists from the Deering Estate are: Visual Arts – Lucas Blanco, Thomas Daniel, Bernadette Denoux, Lucinda Linderman, Aurora Molina and Christina Pettersson; Literary Arts – Deena Blazejack and C.M. Clark. Dominique Breard, LegalArt Program Director has curated the LegalArt portion with their artists including: Justin Broadbent, Pachi Giustinian, Jiae Hwang, Julia Blaukopf, Brookhart Jonquil, Manny Prieres, TM Sisters and Pioneer Winter. The exhibit runs through Saturday, March 10.

Artist Dinorah De Jesus Rodriguez, whose alternate cinema project is incorporated with the lush mango grove that lines the Deering Estate path, greets guests at ArtSoBay Events Night. The evening also brings together this community’s most notable artists, whose works are featured in the groundbreaking exhibit, Wedding Crashers. Artist Ralph Provisero, Special Projects Curator said, “ Weddings can be iconic images of momentary time. The preparation, the party and the aftermath are often based on grandiose images of fantasy or skewed reality. With the Deering Estate being such a popular wedding destination, these art installations, though curated for the spaces they occupy, are wedding crashers ¬–¬ uninvited witnesses that nonetheless embody a presence as fantastical as their surroundings.”

Wedding Crasher artists include: Rene Barge, Bhakti Baxter, Felecia Chizuko Carlisle, Robert Chambers, Clifton Childree, William Cordova, Jason Hedges, Michael Loveland, Cheryl Pope, Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova, Frances Trombly and Wendy Wischer.

The evening also features on-going performance art: Contact with Rene Barge and the transformation of sound with crowd participation, Lucinda Linderman Excess Extravagance, Jason Hedges Vertical Spits and C.M. Clark presenting a poetry reading. There is an informal reception with an opportunity to meet all of the artists and curators.
