Back in 2009, the good ol' days of Wynwood, the galleries would serve their guests wine on Second Saturday. The free booze never lasted long. And even though I couldn't afford any art in Wynwood anyways, it was nice to be poured a glass of wine for simply turning up. You felt welcomed. Now, the idea of being handed a complimentary glass of wine in Wynwood seems ridiculous. We all know some well-connected millenial would probably tweet about it and before you know it every 10th grader in the county would be there. FAT Village is a wine-trusting utopia.
