    Miami Art Week Serves a $1,000 Cup of Coffee by Artist Coolman Coffeedan

    Miami Art Week is upon us and, after last year’s quietude, most of us will welcome the annual parade of hype, celebrities, parties, not to mention the art that emerges every so often. In 2019, a work by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, entitled Comedian, was the talk of the town. If you don’t recall that particular piece, you might remember that it was a banana, duct-taped to a wall. The art, which sold for $120,000, was promptly torn from the wall and consumed by a performance artist named David Datuna, who filmed the snackage and flipped it into a   Read More

    CD Young doesn’t want her vegan restaurant, Spirit Elephant, to just appeal to those on a plant-based diet. She wants hamburger lovers to want to eat there too. And I can say Young has achieved her goal. The restaurant’s food is equal parts fresh and rich, its decor is inviting, and the overall dining – or takeout – experience is one to remember. “I always envisioned Spirit Elephant as a place people would want to travel to, like a destination restaurant,” said Young, who has been a vegan for eight years. “However they eat, I want people to be happy   Read More

    “Previously, I had wanted to go to seminary school as a way to escape,” Pelzel said. “This time, I wanted to go to seminary school for the right reasons.” Enrolling at Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, Pelzel continued on his road to becoming a priest.

    Local Eats: Grandma’s Recipes serves up hearty ‘darn good food’ on Flint’s east side

While the offer was met with some skepticism, Wright said he would hold provide his services should the day come.
