Rally for Alex Sink in Liberty City June 26

Grand Opening of Bordercross EcoCultural Center

Date: Friday, June 25, 2010

Time: 6:00pm - 11:00pm

Location: 1333 SW 8th St. Miami, FL 33135

Feel the rhythms of Afro-Cuban & Haitian drumming, traditional Cuban Son and dance, savor delicious refreshments and enjoy the company of cool, creative, community-minded folks. The grand opening takes place during the Viernes Culturales/Cultural Fridays festival, so there's more live music and arts right outside The doors.

Deepen your connections with the people, places, ecology and cultural traditions of Miami. It is the gathering place for locals and visitors who care about sustainable living and sustainable travel, place, culture, authenticity and diversity.

The warm, colorful and inviting Center in the heart of Little Havana is across the street from a traditional open-air fruteria serving Cuban coffee and fresh-squeezed guarapo (sugarcane juice). The space seats 25 and will host workshops, film screenings, storytelling, and music, dance and crafts demonstrations.

Bordercross is an information center for visitors and locals. Find brochures, maps and tips for local places we and others recommend. They also sell the work of nationally recognized, local traditional artists, artisans and eco-artists such as Ezequiel Torres, Ana Bikic, Jan Sebon, Papa Loko and Eddie Osborne; locally made honey, jellies, soaps and essential oils; books and guides about or inspired by Miami (and by local authors and poets); music and films by local artists/bands, and eco-friendly products.
