Last night, I had the opportunity to view some amazing art at an art gallery opening in Wilton Manors. The gallery, Negril Art Gallery, was holding its grand opening complete with wine, hor d’oeuvres, music and great company. This event was made even more special as my employee was one of the night’s featured artists. It was an awesome opportunity to enjoy some art while supporting a colleague.
Honestly, I had an inkling that his work would be great, but I had no idea just how amazing they would be. Consequently, I was completely awestruck by his work. His portraits were sublime. If you asked me which one was my favorite, I wouldn’t be able to pick just one. They were that good!
I really enjoyed the gallery opening. First of all, it was the first time in a long time that the Hubby and I were attending something that wasn’t hockey related. Secondly, the art was utterly sublime. Lastly, it was amazing to see our team there to support their colleague. Truly, it was incredible seeing all the people form work that went to support Kwame. It was a great event!
Afterwards, several us went to Padrino’s for some Cuban food and more drinks. Oh yes, the vodka and long islands were free flowing as we waited for the others. I enjoyed Arroz Con Pollo, while the hubby had lechon asada. Fortunately, both of our decisions were pure perfection. Both the chicken and the pork were cooked perfectly and were full of flavor. We will definitely be back! Moreover, our bill was only $200, which for 8 adults that are all drinking is pretty darn cheap.
After Padrino’s, we headed over to Cafe Vico for some more drinks and live music. Unfortunately, the band had finished playing by the time we got there. They had music playing, but the song choices were not fantastic. Fortunately, the DJ/Chef/Owner let us start playing the music from his iPad. We had a fabulous time and shut the place down. We ended our night by committing to go to Reykavik or Zurich for a girls weekend. All in all , we had an amazing night out on the town.
Tonight’s song performed by Prince is “When Doves Cry.”
200 buck for EIGHT?! That’s insane! Good for you, it looks like a wonderful time, with wonderful art.
It is was insanely cheap for S. Florida where the drinks are usually 15-20/piece.
Wow. Was the event subsidized? I mean, I couldn’t even make a home cooked meal for 8 – with wine! – for that kind of money. I’m glad you got to experience it 🙂
We ate dinner at a restaurant afterwards, but I totally agree with you. And the food was amazing
