Book Your Hotel for Art Basel in Miami Beach 2013 Now

Art Basel in Miami Beach 2013

Waiting until the last second to book a hotel for Art Basel in Miami Beach 2013 will cost you…a lot! Last year weekend rates for some hotels in Miami Beach started at $1,209 and went all the way up to $9,500 a night. For those of us who attend Art Basel to immerse ourselves in art, take in the special exhibitions, and wonder from gallery to gallery paying $1,000s for a weekend stay is not ideal. Getting an early start on accommodations will save you a buck or two and will let you focus on this dynamic cultural event. Last year the event attracted over 50,000 international visitors so don’t wait too long. The dates for Art Basel in Miami Beach this year are December 5-8, 2013. For more information about attending Art Basel visit the Art Basel Miami Beach official website. It truly is a can’t miss event and among the best art exhibition in North America.

Sushi Samba Dromo

SUSHISAMBA is born of the energy and spirit of these three distinct cultures a tri-cultural coalition that took root in the early 20th century when thousands of Japanese emigrants traveled to South America’s fertile soil to cultivate coffee plantations and find their fortune. In bustling cities like Lima in Peru and São Paulo in Brazil, the integration of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cultures flourished.

This cultural phenomenon launched a culinary coup. Hearty moquecas and colorful seviches found a place at the table alongside simple miso soup and tender sashimi. SUSHISAMBA serves these traditional dishes, plus more inventive fare, including Sashimi Seviche, Tuna Tataki and our Wagyu Gyoza. Equal parts imagination and history, the SUSHISAMBA experience is truly unique.
