David Lombardi, President of Lombardi Properties and pioneer of the Wynwood Arts District, took part in the kickoff festivities yesterday for Veritage Miami at the Wynwood Walls. It was a “win win for Wynwood,” Lombardi describes. “It was absolutely the best event that I’ve seen at Wynwood Walls.” With over 1,000 attendees, and a great deal of vendors, The United Way Wine And Food Festival was indeed, fantastic. Lombardi, a Miami real estate broker and art collector, was raving over the selection of beers presented by the Wynwood Brewing Company, who will soon premiere their permanent location in Wynwood. “They were best in show, it was ridiculous.” David explains the various beers he tasted, starting with the Blonde brew, characterized as “light and refreshing, unbelievable. The fruity and juicy Pale Ale was spectacular, off the charts. Pops Porter was dark and earthy. Octopus On The Wall, a Double Pale Ale, all I can say is, lookout Wynwood!”

Complementing the craft beer tasting, there were also delicious edible delectables. A local Miccosukee tribe was serving Bison short rib sandwiches with gruyere cheese, which were “orgasmic.” As for The Daily Melt, a new grilled cheese spot in Midtown Miami, “that bastard is sick. He’s gonna clog my arteries and kill me dead, but it was probably worth it.”

From ceviche to yogurt dipped pretzels, the kick off event in the heart of Miami’s Arts District was a success. But when it came to dessert, who took the cake? None other than another Midtown Miami favorite, Sweet Cakes. “The Slut Brownie was worthy of a venereal disease, it was fabulous.”
