Last night I attended my third Art Basel kick off party at the MoCA NoMi (fancy, I know, it’s the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami). To put it plainly, I’d say the party the prior two years was superior, better DJ, better food and I think the party itself was longer, but most importantly, the ticket was cheaper.
Conveniently, my girlfriend and I miraculously got in for free. Literally though, miraculously and I’ll leave it at that, just a little Basel magic I suppose.
I spent a total of $4 to tip the bartenders. I did not pay the $35 ticket price that would’ve covered my three complimentary cocktails during the Belvedere open bar and the hors d’vours they served. I saved $31 or 87%. Not bad for Tuesday before 10pm.
