In our humble opinion, this was the year Art Basel jumped the shark—but we still found ourselves enjoying Cuban sandwiches and 80 degrees of sunshine (most of the time) this past weekend while NYorkers froze their tootsies off.
Amid a ferociously packed social calendar of Newyorkese parties—A-ron! Dash! (Prince) Language! La Jauretsi! Surface 2 Air!—we somehow managed to chow on mini burgers (bka sliders) while watching Devendra sing under palm trees at the swishy Deitch Projects opening gala, catch some rayz and check out the Skywalker/Scion 3 parade balloons, (featuring floaters by homies Paperrad and Mumble Boy), and get pushed around by weird Miami trophy wives to watch Dita von Teese get all burlesque and hop a mechanical bull in the shape of a giant lipstick tube. Oh and we also saw some art.
