Hope you're enjoying Saturday morning surfing. Here's a few things I found this morning floating around the SoFla blogosphere.
A- Discourse has a great video featuring the Party of Zero.
B- En Vivo y En Directo tells us why we need to try Stone India Pal Ale.
If you’re not familiar with India Pale Ale, it’s beer with a kick. The opposite of smooth. Rather bitter, and full of flavor. Something that will put your taste buds to work (and is nothing short of greatness IMO). Take a swig of an IPA and the flavor will linger in your buds and on your mind, whether you want to or not.C- Eye on Miami posts a video taken at a local jazz concert this week and discusses why they just aren't able to get into that particular genre of music.
For the past few years I have been trying to acquire a taste for jazz. I keep going to concerts hoping. Last night we went to see Chick Corea and John McLaughlin with good friends: I did like the concert, but I didn't love it. I always dread bass solos at jazz concerts. The bass solos last night were pretty good in comparison to other bass solos but the saxophone solos really grated on me for some reason. Usually I don’t mind them. Whenever he started I said to myself "Not again!" And, then I thought maybe it will be better this time...but it wasn't.D- Miamism has their usual weekly mojito review, this time from Scorch Grillhouse. Outtakes included.
E- The TinyJEWELBox relates an experience that a lot of South Florida English speakers will relate to.
We all went to the exam room. The doctor was a gorgeous Latina. The receptionist was there as well. The doctor asked if I spoke Spanish, I said no. She asked if I understood Spanish, I said no. She asked both questions in English. And that's where the story gets bizarre.F- Coconut Grove Grapevine gives us a rundown of Earth Hour events in the Grove.
From that point, NOBODY in the room spoke English, including the husband. All communication was directed to him, in Spanish. After every volley of conversation, he would have to tell me what was going on. If I asked a question in English, they would turn to him and answer in Spanish. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper.
G- Rakontur shares a clip and some photos from the filming of a new documentary they're doing on Miami-Dade's backyard fighting circuit. Raw stuff.
