- Sunset over Miami, taken from the
RickenbackerJulia Tuttle Causeway (thanks for the correction, Kyle!); downtown is at the left, the rest of the skyline is the midtown development.
- Something stinks about Florida’s voting machines. There is a lot more information, including what you can do about it, at hidden city.
- Potboilers: Artblog tears into the Rosenquist show at the MAM (which I found likable, but I pick my fights with those dudes).
- MiamiSNews is a strange and interesting site. (Via SotP)
- A lot of data entry has gone into Restaurant Place, an effort to consolidate all the menus of all the restaurants in one place. Two thoughts: (1) One day soon a restaurant without a website will be as foolish as a hotel without one is today; (2) as long as tying the name of a restaurant into Google (maybe along with a pertinent city name or cross street) is the fastest and best way to get this information, who needs a standalone directory?
- A little glimpse into life on South Beach.
- Stuck on the Palmetto treats us to pictures of ad planes snagging banners at North Perry.
- “Miami-Dade County remain[s] one of the least fair and reasonable jurisdictions in the country.”
- Just by the sheer force of sitting in front of her computer, reading all the Miami blogs, and posting comments everywhere, Manola B is rapidly becoming the glue in what may turn out to be a Miami blogging community.
- Maybe there’s a real magazine called Miami Monthly; in any case, there is this website. Anyone have any thoughts?
- Wow, a lot of people wrote about Guillermo Fariñas yesterday.
- A disastrous Patti LaBelle concert at the Riviera Beach Jazz and Blues Festival was apparently the fault of the festival organizers. (Via the Daily Pulp, now at its new location. w/r/t which location Bob is pretty ambivalent. Check out his weird, Dave-Eggersesque self-interview, here and here (it’s the 2nd half of each of those posts).)
