You’ve invited to a Block Party 11/21/08

Friday 21 November
9:00 am

Join Miami Design Preservation League, the City of Miami Beach Mayor Matti Bower and Commissioners, Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce, the Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau for a block party celebrating the Art Deco Gift Shop on 12th Street and Ocean Drive. While MDPL’s home in the 10th Street Auditorium is being renovated, we’ve opened a new Gift Shop filled with Art Deco fun, and we’re hosting a party to introduce the Gift Shop to Miami Beach residents.

From 9:00 – 11:00 am, we’re closing the eastern portion of 12th Street at Ocean Drive for the event. In addition to the formal ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Gift Shop, we’ll also be unveiling the 2009 Art Deco Weekend® poster, specially created by Miami-based artists Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt, on the theme of Down Argentine Way: Deco • Vino • Tango.

You can also be among the first to purchase the new Monopoly Miami and the Beaches game, featuring prominent Miami Beach locations and benefitting MDPL. You can enter a drawing for great prizes, and enjoy light refreshments. Free admission.

The Art Deco Block Party is made possible with the generous participation of the Palace Bar and Grill.

Location: Art Deco Gift Shop, 12th Street, just west of Ocean Drive, Miami Beach
