If you are hitting the 2011 Miami Beach Art Basel, the endless procession of events and “can’t miss” flyers can be enough to overwhelm the sturdiest of art-lovers. Seriously though…last year I was reduced to a quivering heap of panic somewhere along the shoreline, frantically wondering if my plan to forgo a plan of action was smart…it wasn’t.
Preparations are under way!
Without further ado, secure your luxury rental car in Miami (perhaps opt for a chauffeur this week…DUIs are expensive, just ask Paris & Lindsay), learn from my mistakes and mishaps and make the most of the week via the following tips: (Quick overview of each below!)

Nightdrive and Stüssy’s Art Basel Kickoff. December 1st @ 11pm at Mamushka’s Midtown (31 NW 36th street, Miami). Kick things off with a stiff drink and bands Nightdrive, Stussy and more talent. Take your vitamins, it will be a rough morning.
F**k Me I’m Famous! by Cathy and David Guetta. December 2nd @ 11pm at LIV (4441 Collins Ave. Miami). This is how you mix with celebrities…so bring your camera and get ready for some famous fun! $200 per person, worth every penny.
Cashmere Kitties Music Festival. December 1st @ 6:30pm through the 3rd at 6:30pm at Kohn Compound (219 NW 24th St. Miami). No cover, all ages. This is how you avoid sketchy events that creep up during this week.
Neon Indian. December 1st @ 10pm at Bardot (3456 N. Miami Ave. Miami). 21&up, $45 cover will buy you a trippy art experience with a chillwave pioneer.
Fab 5 Freddy and Ninjasonik. December 2nd @ 7pm at Fountain Art Fair (2505 N. Miami Ave. Miami). Pro-tip: snag a week pass for just $15, otherwise its $10 per day.
Twin Shadow. December 2nd @ 8pm at NE 27th and NE 2nd Ave, Miami. No cover charge for the synth magician Twin Shadow who will have you in a state of mesmerized bliss after a half bottle of Absolut.
Crosstown Rebels present Get Lost Art Basel. December 4th @ noon at the Electric Pickle (2826 N. Miami Ave, Miami). For just $35 you can see Damian Lazarous, Lee Curtiss, Clive Henry and more!
Basel Castle 2011. December 3rd at 5pm at Overthrow Castle (41 NW 20th St, Miami). Just $10 at the door buys you a wild party…in a freaking castle! Expect a DJ set by The Rapture, Penguin Prison and more along with a 4-day long party.
Tom Tom Magazine’s Art Basel Showcase. December 3rd @ 8pm (Churchill’s Pub 5501 NE Second Ave, Miami). Indulge your senses with Holly Hunt, Snakehole, The State Of and more for just $7!
Hard 2 Leave. It would not be Miami without some strippers…so on December 4th @ 11pm head over to Goldrush in Miami (29 NE 11 Street for those of you who do not have it programmed in your GPS already). Bring $10 cover fee and a wad of $1s for the uhm…talent! Not recommended for the wee leetle tykes.
