Not a whole lot going on tonight in the SoFla blogosphere. Enjoy a very lightweight Sunday evening Sift.
A- Some Cranky Guy takes a rare trip to South Beach with the wife and cranks out a few pictures.
We enjoyed a very nice breakfast under the sea grapes of the outdoor patio of the News Cafe. They were playing classical music, I think Mozart. From there we strolled down Ocean Drive with cameras in hand, snapping away.B- Sex and the Beach visits the Icon at Brickell and gives us her straightforward assessment of the property.
The entrance to the building, a portico with columns inspired by the statues at Easter Island, is the weirdest thing you'll see in a rash of gimmicky architectural details. I'm sorry, folks, but the columns look like giant sh*t [Ed.] turds and don't flow with the symmetrical and angular lines of the buildings. Also, the statues aren't exactly part of art in a public park, but seem like someone's personal fetish imposed upon the public view. (By the way, Brickell Park is situated right to the south of Icon and is not integrated into the design.)C- There's a nice Miami sunset captured and posted at Miamism Pix.
Every time I drive by there, I think and laugh: this luxury property is held up by some very serious looking Mr. Hankey's from South Park!
