MIAMI GETAWAY

22 May

I had a chance to go out to Florida during May- I really needed some sun. These past few weeks in NY with gray skies has really drained my energy. I needed to refuel. I went out there with my awesome sister and her best freind. We stayed at this beautiful house where our gracious hosts Nissim and Tali provided us with EVERYTHING we needed to have a blast. Check the flicks:

bonnaroo-2009

Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is a four-day, multi-stage camping festival held on a beautiful 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee every June. Bonnaroo brings together some of the best performers in rock and roll, along with dozens of artists in complementary styles such as jazz, Americana, hip-hop, electronica, and just about any contemporary music you can think of. In addition to dozens of epic performances, the festival’s 100-acre entertainment village buzzes around the clock with attractions and activities including a classic arcade, on-site cinema, silent disco, comedy club, theater performers, a beer festival, and a music technology village. For its peaceful vibe, near-flawless logistics, and unrivaled entertainment options, Rolling Stone magazine named this revolutionary entertainment experience one of the 50 moments that changed the history of rock and roll.
