There once was a time when Art Basel and all the related hoopla surrounding it was solely about, well, art. Today, however, it's become the NASCAR of the art world, with sponsors, sponsors everywhere. Luckily for those with a fine tuned palate, the sponsors aren't Busch Beer but, rather, Veuve Clicquot (the official champagne of Design Miami/), Dom Perignon and Runiart. Veuve, incidentally is taking their Baseling a step further by introducing the Clicq’Up Lounge and Champagne Bar, a mobile food truck and adjacent champagne lounge that will pop-up in key locations in Miami from Tuesday, November 29 through Friday, December 2. For location info, follow @Veuve_Clicquot on Twitter.
Tapping into the local chef talent, Veuve hired gastroPod's Chef Jeremiah, who will be serving, among other things a crispy white corn cake with poached egg and chipotle cream, curry pork tacos, and conch salad. Buy a bottle of Veuve and be the first to have your own Cliq’Up, the origami pop-up champagne bucket that that inspired the food truck’s name. Artful, isn't it? [EaterWire]
