Print Friendly, PDF & Email

What are the best bakeries in Miami? I have the scoop. And I was excited to learn that the Rubells of Miami, who are exceptional people, are opening a second art museum in Washington DC.  And what could be better than yoga on the beach, under a full moon? I have the details. If you really want to learn about art and expand your social life, I highly recommend joining Fountainhead Arts.


What Are the Best Bakeries in Miami?

If you want to find the best restaurants (or best bakeries) in Miami subscribe to The Infatuation newsletter.  You can also visit the website for the same information. I like getting the alerts because the updates keep me much more informed on a regular basis.

I’ve been getting The Miami Infatuation alerts for a few months now. I look forward to them because I am reading about a wide diversification of choices. Today was a bonanza special. I received a list of the best bakeries in Miami. I was so happy to receive these recommendations because I have been to a few bakeries recently that were not so good. I thought the pastries were dry and tough. Not one of the disappointments were on the list. It proves to me this website knows what they are talking about. Get the list of the best bakeries.





The Rubell’s of Miami Open an Art Museum in Washington DC 

When I was growing up, most of the fathers in the neighborhood (Hollis, Queens) had blue collar, or lower middle management jobs. Never in my life did I think I would know the owners of museums. Living in Miami you meet many. Mera and Don Rubell are exceptional.

In a press release they announced the launch of a second museum, the Rubell Museum DC, which will open to the public on October 29, 2022. The museum will present exhibitions of works, drawn from the Rubells’ unparalleled and ever-expanding collection of paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, and site-specific work by American and international artists. Residents of Washington, DC will receive free admission to the museum, providing expanded opportunities for the wider community to engage in a dialogue with the artists of our times.

Located at 65 I Street in Southwest DC, less than a mile from the Capitol and National Mall, the Rubell Museum DC will be dedicated exclusively to contemporary art. Its collection encompasses over 7,400 works and is distinguished by the diversity and geographic distribution of the 1,000-plus artists represented within it. The museum will be programmed to complement and be contextualized within the city’s incredible array of art museums, including the nearby Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, National Gallery of Art, National Museum of African American History and Culture, National Museum of the American Indian, National Museum of Women in the Arts, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, as well as the Phillips Collection in Northwest DC and many specialized art museums throughout the city.

The museum will be housed in the historic former Cardozo Elementary and then Randall Junior High School, which were in operation from 1906 to 1978. The adaptive reuse of the building into a museum preserves this important landmark, a historically Black public school in Southwest DC listed in the National Register of Historic Places and brings it back to life as a public resource.

The 32,000 square foot museum will feature exhibition galleries, public programming, flexible activation spaces, a bookstore, and a café with indoor and outdoor dining. The Museum’s opening program will be announced in the coming months. Read more here.
