On episode 61, Adam Gersten, proprietor of Gramps, a bar in Wynwood, stopped by the show to talk about the challenges of being a small business owner in Miami. He also talked about his previous career as an assistant state’s attorney in Key West and about the changes that have come to Downtown Miami and Wynwood in the past couple of decades. Grant and Adam discussed the state of local politics and government, as the vast majority of Miami’s elected officials are term-limited, creating a situation of extreme turnover in local government. Finally, Grant and Adam spent some time reminiscing about being students at New World School of the Arts.

Downtown Miami is in the midst of remaking itself, positioning itself as a great place for young professionals to work and live. Redevelopment is fueling this renaissance, and new retail establishments are helping to make downtown into an urban center.
National specialty food retailer Whole Foods Market will be having a grand opening for its new downtown Miami store on Wednesday morning, January 14. Marketing team leader Janelle Sapero joined the show to talk about the grand opening plans, and to talk about how Whole Foods is committed to the local community. In fact, the store invited local street artists to turn their parking garage into an art gallery. This curated collection will be only one more reason to visit the new grocery store.
