I'm thinking, based upon the steady beat of raindrops on my roof right now, that tonight's full moon celebrations might be a bit damp. Saty dry and enjoy your Thursday evening Sift...
A- Blind Mind mentions SFDB and wonders about a photo that I recently posted here...so, you know.
B- Coconut Grove is the "anti-[Miami] Beach" this weekend, according to Coconut Grove Grapevine.
We are after all the anti-Beach on Memorial Day, the opposite of the madhouse that South Beach has become on Memorial Day Weekend.C- U.S. District Judge Cecilia Altonaga remembers the late Judge Davis in this post at Southern District of Florida.
Do people know they can get great hotel deals at all of our Grove hotels? Do they know about the many quaint restaurants we have and our access to sailing on the bay? Do they know of our shops and boutiques and art galleries? We have bicycle rentals and cool shady tree-lined streets.
Judge Davis was my source of inspiration and I credit him with my desire to become a judge. He administered my oath as judge on three separate occasions, the last of which was as a federal district judge. When I joined the Southern District of Florida in 2003, I was humbled to occupy his former office and courtroom.D- Miamism showcases a contemporary waterfront Venetian Island home that has been discounted a whole $50,000 to $7.85 million. First one there is a millionaire!
E- Wide Lawns and Narrow Lawns is discovering life with baby.
So after we got home I was sitting in a chair staring into space and I felt a bunch of popping and fizzing going on and I thought "Oh my God this PF Changs gave me terrible gas or something!" Then I thought, maybe that's the baby moving. Then I thought, no, it's just gas. But then it kept happening and I realized that really was her moving around! I guess she was trying to say "HEY! Yeah! It's ME. I am a girl and I am coming in October! And I like dumplings so eat some more!"F- Sex and the Beach is taking nominations for her Hurricane Season Boyfriend.
Since 2006, Sex and the Beach has been searching for the perfect man to accompany us from June 1 to November 30. He should be great in bed, handy with tools, devoted and loving even when both of you have to sleep in a mosquito-infested tent in the backyard after law-enforced curfew, exhausted from walking two miles to buy a price-gouged bag of ice that melted by the time you got home.G- The organizers of Wynwood Graffiti by Bike thank their supporters at Miami Bike Scene.
If you've experienced a serious hurricane followed by an eternity of power outages, you know there's nothing else to do in the aftermath besides boinking and counting the no-see-ums staging a circus on Wonder Bread slathered with peanut butter. Single women without lovers are cruelly cheated by fate and miss out on this endearing experience!
First and foremost we would like to thank everyone who in one way or another has helped piece together Graffiti by Bike. We've succeeded in introducing 100+ people and all their people to public art in Wynwood, an international attraction just around the corner. It has turned out to be much more than we could have ever hoped for and the results have been magnificent. With this being only the second time we carry out the tour we have been able to introduce a number of residents to their neighborhood, exposed kids to the positive aspects of urban art and discovered great local businesses.H- Under the Sun has a wonderful audio essay on the mood in Key West as they wait for the oil to arrive.
