ParkJockey presents “Words to Live By” by “Fena” Gonzalez

ParkJockey cordially invites you to experience a night of art this Saturday, June 14 at Cafeina Wynwood Lounge.  Guests will enjoy work by Maria “Fena” Gonzalez and those that display their ParkJockey registration on their phone will receive complimentary cocktails.

“Words to Live By” is the artist’s introspective look into her favorite poetry intertwined with her own reflections on life, intentions and embracing it all. These works are presented as a whimsical dreamscape for viewers to lose themselves in.

“Floating images of nature, of visions dreamed and lived, weave in and out, intertwining with linings of text from poems, sayings and conversations with others that inspire and change me.” -Fena Gonzalez

The festivities will take place between 7pm – 9pm. To secure your parking in advance, visit http://www.parkjockey.com/pjartwalk or search “Fena” within your ParkJockey app. All reservations are paid with a credit card, so there’s no need for cash or ATMs. The app and website are free to use and there are no extra fees associated with booking in advance.

As always, please drink responsibly. Our partners, RedCap, can drive you home, or wherever else you would like to go, in your own car for less than the price of a round-trip taxi. Drivers are booked on a first-come, first-served basis so please book your personal driver early.

What To Do This Saturday

We’re coming up on the second Saturday of the month, which can only mean one thing – WYNWOOD ARTWALK! If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years (or perhaps you are new to Miami), here’s the scoop on what it’s all about:

Wynwood Art Walk is a gallery walk that takes place on the second Saturday of every month in the Wynwood Art District of Miami. It’s a free event that’s open to the public, originally created to showcase galleries in the neighborhood. Some of the must see galleries include Pan American Art Projects, Robert Fontaine Gallery and NOW contemporary. Insider tip – come hungry! The neighborhood boasts delicious restaurants but nothing beats checking out the extensive choices at the various food trucks that setup for the night. Some favs are Dim Ssäm à gogo (by the people who brought you Sakaya Kitchen), gastroPod, Ms. Cheezious, Latin Burger and Taco, and HipPOPS for dessert!

Art Gallery
Art lovers start trickling in starting around 7pm, with a large crowd forming by 8pm. Parking can be tough to come by but that’s why you have ParkJockey! You can book your parking in advance here.
