Day 3 - Aqua Art Fair

Day 3-- Soft Opening.
Aqua opened yesterday, along with all of the Wynnwood shows -- but crickets could be heard at most. SCOPE was pretty lively. Most attendees are flying in today anticipating tonights VIP opening at Art Basel.
Julie and I went to SCOPE as Larry and Debra manned the booth. SCOPE had some very exciting artists and art projects. OBAMA is a big theme at the fair this year - and his image is everywhere.
--- Second Half of Day Three
Dinner at the Blue Door at the Delano Hotel !! In South Beach is where everyone is at -- specifically at the Delano Hotel. A crazy mix of men and women in power suits - business dealings happening at each table. Artists in all kinds of crazy costumes and girls (and boys) showcasing their best assets as they strut through the lobby which at night is transformed to a very hip Night Club/restaurant.
Tonight we are lucky ones - because I made our reservations months ago - and we get the "it" table with full view of the scene. We have a lively group - Larry & Debra, Ann & David, Julie, Maureen, Joyce and Tom & Ann. BILL was HUGE -- appetizers for $20 / entrees at $40 - wondering if the Delano offers "special prices" for the Art Basel travelers???
People watching is the thing to do here and provides constant entertainment -- Anything goes - it's "Burning Man for Billionaires" !!
