Before Brickell became the hub of Miami’s
financial activity and the buzz of residents
inundating its contemporary landscape, the
area was the home of the Tequesta Indians
who lived between 500 B.C. to circa 1800 A.D.
Just like its modern occupants, the natives
deemed this region around the mouth of the
Miami River as prime real state. Considered the
main village of the Tequesta tribe, it housed a
large community that flourished and died in
its crescent. The carelessness of older societies
made us lose much of what was left of this
civilization. But a remnant reappeared in the
form of a perfect 38-foot circular footprint
cut into the limestone bedrock, considered the
base of an ancient structure. This discovery
was made in 1998 during preparations for the
erection of a high-rise that was to substitute
for a recently demolished edifice. Further
excavations produced artifacts such as shell
tools, stone axes, pottery shards and human
remains. Controversy over preserving the
grounds arose and the 2.3-acre of land was
declared a National Historic Landmark in 2009.
Earlier this year, Brickell Point Park opened to
the public. The park sits under the watchful
eye of a Tequesta warrior statue placed on the
Brickell Ave. Bridge. In the park, the enticing
green grass, a blue landscape and the Miami
Circle await your visit.

Thinking of throwing a
summer bash? Here are three
guaranteed ways to make
sure any shindig is a smashing
success. Our motto? If it’s
good enough for 5-year-olds,
it’s good enough for us.
30 Bounce Time
What better way to feel like the king
of the party than from within your
very own Bouncy Castle? The palace
a little too cliché for you? Inflate
yourselves into sumo wrestlers and
bounce off each other.
While we’re on the subject of
inflatables, this bubble tent was
designed to get you close to nature.
But how much cooler would it be if you
used it in your living room as a swank
inflatable champagne room?
We recommend you skip ordering
a case of Brew Dog’s End of History.
Though we like the 55% alcoholic
kick, the fact that the bottle is
wrapped in a preserved rodent is
probably a major buzz kill.
