"There was art, there was fashion, there were caricatures (notice I didn’t say characters) to meet on every corner. What there was not for me was a sense of wonder. There lacked a certain momentum of something new and fresh that has been turned into a corporate initiative much like Burning Man, Comic Con, JazzFest, Gay Pride, etc. I am not quite sure where the focus strayed but Miami Art Basel is a blur of traffic, lines for entry, and desperate attempts at attaining a decent meal without getting a shove in the back to move on because this Disney World attraction has a quota to meet.

"The British performance and installation artist Ed Fornieles loves to make a mess. In 2011, he sowed disorder on social media by using dozens of fake accounts to enact the Facebook meta-drama “Dorm Daze.” Earlier this year, for his exhibition “Despicable Me 2,” an ode to the fictional Gen Y goddess Britney Rivers, he cluttered Mihai Nicodim Gallery in Los Angeles with totems of modern-day adolescence, including glitter, hearts, confetti and snapshots. And most recently, for a benefit at the New Museum in New York, he wrought chaos by hiring outlandish performers to attend as guests and mingle with the paying attendees, satirizing the conventions of the charity gala."

"There’s been a lot of debate among bar folk about the word "mixologist." When it first started showing up to describe the craft of mixing cocktails a few years back, it seemed to be embraced by the most creative and ambitious bartenders as a way of giving a specification for someone capable of doing more than pushing beer and shots across a sticky bar."
" One dance club, Pacha, has dominated the Spanish party paradise of Ibiza since the 1970s. Built on former marshland, this island disco and its all-night parties have become global symbols of hedonistic glamour, and the business has expanded to Buenos Aires, New York and beyond. "
""Archaeologists believe beer drinking was an important part of society from the Neolithic onwards and may have even been the main reason that people began to cultivate grain in the first place. … ‘But it’s extremely rare to find the remains of production preserved from thousands of years ago so we’re very excited.""
"No bar caters to everyone. From the trendy bars in Los Angeles to the blue-collar bars in Boston, there’s something different for all stripes.

"Lacierda meanwhile concurred with Naguiat’s proposal, saying that the development will change the landscape of gaming in the country. “It involves the whole family going on a vacation while the adults are playing in the casinos.
