What Can’t YOU Make From LEGO®?!
Whatever you can’t make, it seems artist Nathan Sawaya can. His “Architecture of the Imagination: The Lure of the LEGO® Brick” is currently touring the U.S. and will be at The Art and Culture Center in Hollywood from Friday, June 6th to August 10th. This exhibit of more than 30 works is, of course, sculptural in nature but also playful, impressive, and sometimes truly amazing. Large, small, logos, portraits, and events, nothing seems too difficult for Nathan. From a VS Robot from Capcom’s “Lost Planet” (Capcom is the Japanese video game developer known for “Street Fighter“, “Mega Man“, and “Resident Evil“) to the Iwo Jima memorial to Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” the execution is as amazing as the subject matter! Can’t wait to see which 30 of his works are a part of the show.
Join the fun and CREATE YOUR OWN LEGO® sculpture. A pre-registration form must be submitted by July 23rd. Build it at home and bring it in for the contest by Wednesday, August 6th, between 9:00 AM and 7:00 PM. Find out more.
The CUPCAKE Craze Continues . . .
Fans of Misha’s cupcakes aka Lix by Misha (Dadeland Mall near the Food Court) will be delighted to learn that she is opening her first store on US-1 in the old Riviera Cinema strip mall—near Spec’s Music. There is a “Coming Soon” sign up in the window of the old “Wing Zone”. Until now they have been available only in other places like Van Dyke’s on Lincoln Road, Marble Slab Creamery in Pinecrest, Coral Bagels in the Grove, Books & Books and Paper Emporium in the Gables, etc. (check the web site for all locations).
To say the cupcakes are moist and delicious does not begin to do them justice. Misha’s red velvet has chocolate chips! The frosting is not overpoweringly sweet like frosting can be; it’s just perfect and she is generous with it, but even so one cupcake is never enough, you’ll want to keep devouring them. Try dense and dark chocolate, luscious vanilla, marble, oreo, peanut butter, coconut, coffee liqueur, cinnamon sugar, or the superstar, red velvet. You’ll be hooked.
