Killer Show
If you’ve never heard of The Killers, don’t worry, they won’t hurt you. Several hit singles including “Somebody Told Me” and “Mr. Brightside” put them at the top of the music charts in 2006 with their album Hot Fuss. Now, the band who draws their influences from the sounds of the ‘80s is promoting their latest album, Day & Age, considered by fans to be one of their best. Catch the band performing on Oct. 3 at the American Airlines Arena at 8 p.m. To purchase tickets, visit

Global Touch
After 20 years of experience working with Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley, Brickell Global Consultants Corp. was formed from the fusion of brothers Luis and Alex Tupacyupanqui in the heart of the Miami financial district and has since garnered an in-depth understanding of Miami’s development and overall real estate trends.

Whether representing first time home buyers or listing the most fabulous estates in Miami, the agents of Brickell Global have made a name for themselves amongst local Miami communities. “Brickell Global is passionate about providing the highest level of expertise to our clients,” says Executive VP and International Real Estate Consultant Alex A.

Shoe Salon
Saks Fifth Avenue Dadeland is expanding its designer shoe collection with the debut of 10022-SHOE. Based on the New York flagship’s shoe floor — that’s so big it has its very own zip code — the Dadeland version will open this September with an enhanced selection including Brian Atwoo, Camilla Skovgaard and Elizabeth & James in additon to current designers Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Prada and more. The salon will be the sixth 10022-SHOE location, joining New York, Beverly Hills, Houston Galleria, Phoenix, San Francisco and South Coast Plaza. The space will be accented by a unique variety of chandeliers, modern tables from Eero Saarinen and Warren Platner, vintage furniture pieces and custom-designed curved banquettes.

Fashionable Cause
Spring cleaning in fall? Absolutely. This September 18-19 at Mary Brickell Village, a fundraiser named Fashionably Conscious will be held after having collected designer items from pricey closets for a sale to benefit The Barnyard Community Center, offering free after-school and summer programs for underprivileged kids. While Miami’s socialites get to clean their closets, others who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford these items get to purchase them at very low prices to benefit a great cause.

Stylish Sweets
Treat your sweet tooth to the perfect ratio of frosting, sprinkles and cupcake at Buttercream Cupcakes & Coffee, serving up fresh-baked gourmet cupcakes and “minis” for take-out, curbside service or delivery. Featuring indoor and outdoor patio dining, the shop is the brainchild of husband-and-wife duo, Jose Cuellar and Kristine Graulich, who bake and brew everything on the menu. A rotating selection of 18 choices are offered with a minimum of eight flavors sampled daily from traditional red velvet to innovative key lime, chocolate-orange and latte flavors. Each cupcake runs just $2.75 and is artfully hand-decorated and stylishly packaged in a pretty, pink box. Stop by at 1411 Sunset Drive in Coral Gables for a taste or visit
