I am finding that the beginning of the work week produces an onslaught of new posts in the SoFla blogosphere. I don't know if it's because everyone has been languishing all weekend or what, but today was a goldmine of good stuff. Here is some of it...
A- Matt Meltzer, writing for Miami Beach 411, does a fine job breaking down the infamous murder of Groveite Stanley Cohen by his wife, Joyce.
B- Gluten-free cooking and a link to a gluten-free blogger at All Purpose Dark.
C- Miami-Dade Dems posts comprehensive coverage of Democratic congressional candidate Joe Garcia's comments on Fidel Castro's resignation.
D- GreenerMIAMI is preggars and she needs help naming her baby.
E- A Grand Illusion and 26th Parallel offer up a touch of reasonable and articulate commentary on Fidel's resignation.
F- MenuPages: South Florida finds that the wine list at Bourbon Steak is pretty unbelievable.
So, back to this crazy-long wine list at Bourbon Steak. It's the kind of place that deals in decadence (duck fat fries anyone? How about some butter-poached prime rib?), so it's fitting to have a collection of 7,000 bottles of wine. But can anyone actually make a decision in, say, 15 minutes when there are so many choices? There are over 100 types of pinot noir alone.
G-Miami Nights has some thoughts about the proposed plans for the new Marlins stadium and provides a couple great links including one to some great conceptual views of the thing.
H- Coral Gables doesn't mix words with her review of the Coconut Grove Arts Festival.
I- Eye on Miami gave me a good laugh today for its take on Castro's resignation...
As a young child I remember the name Castro. They had a convertible bedding company and the TV ad had a little girl pulling open a sofa bed. I could never figure out how Fidel had this company with commercials on U.S. TV.
J- Coconut Grove Grapevine goes to great lengths to explain what comments will make it through moderation...if he remembers to read them, that is.
