Although Bernie Sanders hasn’t officially dropped out of the race, he endorsed Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, meaning she’s basically the Democratic presidential candidate now. Her campaign moved into their South Florida HQ in Wynwood last week as they ramp up their game in South Florida.
Last week we gave Donald Trump some pro tips on lunching at Versailles (although that lunch ended up being canceled). With all these bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Clinton campaign staffers descending on the hipster mecca, we thought they could use a few tips themselves on making the most of their new hood while they’ve still got a bit of a life left.
- If you go to The Wood, only go on Tuesdays, for those free Pancho tacos or on Wednesdays, when ladies, both presidential and otherwise, drink free. But just don’t ever, and we mean EVER, go on a weekend unless you’re tryna wait in line until election day.
- Panther coffee is great, you should go there once, maybe twice. But then when you’re tired of the crowds, slide on over to Miam Cafe, where there’s no line and hella good coffee.
- Other things you should only do once: Second Saturdays Art Walk, Wynwood Walls, pay $10 for juice at JugoFresh, ride on the mushroom mobiles, pay a $20 cover at El Patio, and of course, visit the ever-ratchet Shots.
- Check out the Saturday Wynwood Farmer’s market for Hillary’s daily jalepeño pepper fix.
- After those late nights strategizing, grab some dinner at Coyo and then pop into the tequila bar in the back. Wednesday reggae night is major key.
- Shinola is expensive. Marvel at the $800 bags and $1,000 watches, but then GTFO. Fast. You don’t got campaign dollars for that.
- Tuesday night trivia at Gramps is da bomb. Other things about Gramps that are awesome: their new pizza bar, their monthly vintage clothing market, and the deliciouso Rosemary’s Baby. We know Hills is about the vodka martinis — the bartenders here are great, they’ll have you covered.
- Boxelder is your go-to for craft beers.
- Educate yourself — long before it was the street art hipster haven it is today, it was the garment district, full of industrial warehouses where many Puerto Rican and Korean families used to live and work. Do some reading on the neighborhood, maybe at the dope new Books + Books + Bikes + Lebo.
