Some true, some made up, all ridiculous!

June 22, 2023 – 7:00pm – Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

Nerd Nite Miami is back for one night only! Join us at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens for a special evening of thinking and drinking. We’ll have talks on Miami’s salacious history that will be hard to believe.

Line up:

Who is Irene? And why did she have to die?
Join Rebecca  Peterson, Vizcaya’s Sr Manager for Community Programs, for a murder mystery game that sheds light into how we know some of what we know. There will be letters, photographs, and a whole lot of guessing. Fun will be had by all. 

Miami’s Creation Myth
Just as the ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Norse had their gods, villains, and heroes, Miami now has a legendary saga based on the hyperbolic surrealism that is living in South Florida. Author Andrew Otazo will introduce you to a wholly unique universe with its own, often absurd, deities and norms. Along the way, you’ll learn answers to deep existential questions, such as: Where do croquetas come from? Who is the god of chisme? And why is everyone late to everything?

Henry Flagler- All That Glitters is Not Gold

Who truly was Henry Flagler? Join Ingrid E. Argueta, HistoryMiami Museum’s Coordinator of Education Programs and Community Engagement, as she reflects upon the impact this railroad tycoon had on South Florida. Listen as she brings to light the stories and contributions of those who facilitated Flagler’s success and helped led to the success of the Magic City.
