“A wonderfully written satire set in Downtown Miami… It explores the zaniness and insanity Miamians love and endure.” The Huffington Post.

“Raúl Guerrero recreates the exuberance and chaos of Miami in unsettling intimacy, while probing the ambivalence of love, sex, betrayal, relocation, greed, art and language.” Arts & Science Magazine.

DOWNTOWN ARTS + SCIENCE SALON  - DASS


We are a combination of open university and a local social club in the historical sense, a place for exchanging ideas on scientific innovations, technological trends, books, art and society.


Take a break from virtual reality. Rediscover the art of conversation over a glass of wine, or two.
