Sunday Feature: The Flavor Trail of Quebec

Located in the province of Quebec along the banks of the Saint Lawrence River, Quebec City is the region’s capital and tourist showpiece. Founded in 1608 by explorer Samuel de Champlain, the city has inherited a strong cultural legacy from centuries of French and British occupation.
Everyone here speaks French and for a long time the region sought to break away from the rest of the country. Canadians are famous for friendliness, and language is not a barrier to the tourist. The city itself is charming, hilly and historic, and is celebrating its 400 anniversary. Most impressive, though, are the sights to be found just outside the city.

Discussing Art for Life with Allison Weiss Brady
Allison Weiss Brady chats with Shareef Malnik, event co-chair, and Tangie Murray, executive director of Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, about the upcoming Russell Simmons’ “Art for Life Miami Beach” gala on March 14 at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
@MiaSci is a happy hour with substance. Art and science converge on the last Thursday of every month at the Miami Science Museum. Young professionals, science aficionados, art enthusiasts and other 21-45 year olds come together for a happy hour alternative in a non-traditional setting. Guests enjoy open bar, hors d’oeuvres, exhibits and the sounds of renowned South Florida DJs all night long. Every month, @MiaSci’s focus changes to include a short program dedicated to an art form, from dance to poetry to the visual and culinary arts. Last month’s event was dedicated to mixology – the art of carefully crafting spirits, liquors, juices and mixers to create phenomenal drinks.
