    It's hard to find anyone who does just one thing in this multi-tasking day and age, but creative spitfire and rising art star Caroline Geys takes the cake. The Belgian-born Miami Beach resident puts a business degree to work by day, DJs at hipster haven Kill Your Idol on Wednesday nights, and specializes in abstract architectural and contemporary painting, a talent that's seen her to shows in South Florida and New York and attention from Ocean Drive, Miami Modern Luxury, and Gen Art Pulse Miami (see her work at CarolineGeys.com). In other words, the fashionable Ladies' Night dance purveyor is one of Miami's foremost culture peddlers. We caught up with Geys to get her top fives in art, nightlife, and all things Magic City.
