The cover story of this week’s SunPost is a great article by Tiffany Rainey about the debate over changing the name of Little Haiti [back] to Lemon City. The kicker is that since the name refers to a neighborhood, not a city per se, nobody’s sure how it would be changed anyway (I say you start by changing it on official City of Miami communications).

We all love Tap-Tap. But there’s a nagging doubt about . . . well, its authenticity; it just seems a little too westernized. La Vraie Difference, in Little Haiti, leaves little room for such doubt.

were served a suculent goat and cabbage stew, fried rice, and an entire plantain each. Tasty stuff, though (and vivid). Would have been even better if we’d though to order beer. A wall-mounted television played a video of a . . . actually, I’m not sure I can describe the video. Chad remarked, “I don’t know what to do with the rest of my life now.”
They do take-out, but believe me, that is not the way to go. Also, the guy at the next table had the fish, and it looked amazing.
