Artist and founder Marta Echazarreta brings more than 18 years of custom-framing experience to Work of Art, encasing valuables from fine art to diplomas and jerseys. Reward graduates' academic rigor by encasing their diploma in a 1-inch black frame with a 1/4-inch mat and a 2-inch glass border ($120). Art collectors can swaddle fine paintings, lithographs, or Albert Einstein–autographed RoboCop 3 posters in a standard black or espresso frame ($56), then select from a variety of acid-free mats ($25 for a 24"x36" mat) to prevent picture yellowing.
For more than 60 years, the mounting maestros at Rex Art Framing have accented and protected cherished family photos, heirlooms, and treasured works of art. In the show room, master framers with more than 30 years of experience can embellish individual pieces with eye-pleasing frames from a selection of hundreds of mouldings. Custom framing starts at about $50 for a basic 8"x10" frame, but prices will vary based on size, style of frame, and the artwork's degree of pricelessness.
The Christmas Palace first opened as a seasonal business idea 20 years ago. Today, the expansive holiday department store receives waves of visitors year round who stroll amid more than 30 styles of faux Christmas trees, shelves full of elegant ornaments, and novelty items such as a 38-inch Santa swinging on a hammock. Collectors stock up on train sets and Department 56 village-collection pieces, and gift givers load their sleighs with goods from Fontanini, a business that began sculpting nativity scenes more than 100 years ago in Italy.
At Animus CrossFit/Corporal CrossFit, students of every skill level, age, and body type can take control of their health with the help of encouraging coaches. The team of qualified trainers draw on intense training experiences in their own lives, such as strength coach and author Carlos Arias's service in the USMC special forces, his wife Jenny's background as a gymnast, or coach Dayron Castaneda's career in collegiate football. The team prides itself on providing one-on-one training and keeping classes small: staff lead premium CrossFit with 1:8 teacher/student ratios, avoiding the overcrowded classes, lack of equipment, and gym-clothes sharing seen in traditional programs. And indoor-outdoor bootcamp classes take advantage of sunny Miami days while avoiding wet ones by training indoors on grass turf or rubber flooring. The small, 16-person classes tailor exercise individually according to skill level and keep things interesting with a combination of gymnastics and running using balls and ropes.
Students shed pounds and tone muscles in programs that are built on proper nutrition and individual, scalable workout routines. Whether pupils are burning fat and building endurance with cardio routines and kettlebells, boosting strength with weightlifting, or refining their running techniques with pose running, coaches work closely with students to help them push past obstacles and reach health goals.
The Miami Wine & Food Festival shares a litany of libations and local eats with curious sommeliers and gourmands. The chic, outdoor Taste & Toast event introduces gustatory glands to wines from around the world. As taste buds hobnob with fruit and oak notes, guests intermingle with one another while snacking on gourmet treats from local restaurants and listening to the bluesy sound of the Jay Blues Band. Winesplorers can stick around after the tasting for a Glenfiddich “Music to Drink Whiskey By” after-party at 9 p.m., where a DJ and whiskey-tamer rest on hand to answer questions and dispel myths about using whiskey as cologne.
