Live from the streets of Calle Ocho 2010
​Calle Ocho 2010 fell on a bright, hot, perfect Miami day in Little Havana on our infamous SW Eighth Street for the biggest street festival in America.

There was food, and drink, tight shorts, bikini tops, tattoos, gold teeth, yelling, screaming, dancing, laughing, eating, smoking, dominoes, and a whole lot of people.

Here a two video clips we got of authentic Miami style, Little Havana, Calle Ocho street dancing, and cafeteria steel pan drumming.

Here's a guy we're calling Steel Pan Jimi, like the Jimi Hendrix of cafeteria pans, banging out beats on Calle Ocho.

Because old people dancing is funny.
