A- Tropic of Mom's husband goes lobster diving and gets turtles instead.
B- Food For Thought posts photos of the delicacies at NAOE.
C- Burger Beast orders a burger at 15th Street Fisheries in Lauderdale and walks away pleasantly surprised.
The burger was just plain awesome. It was cooked to medium and the bacon was crispy deliciousness. I was surprised to find such a good burger in a place known for its seafood but I'll take it.

Born and raised in Miami, Luis Diaz doesn't consider himself a "Miami Artist", though he "loves living here", his art doesn't scream Miami. He prefers to be considered a global artist than be stereotyped as a Miami artist. A graduate from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Luis stays in touch with friends that have included him in various projects. These projects allow him to spread his work as near as Atlanta, GA and as far as Portland, OR; where he is currently participating in a show called The Atomic Tiki. His body of work is expansive and ranges from real life sports heroes to fantastic superheroes.G- Fort Lauderdale residents can park [almost] for free at the beach armed with the information that FTL Collective tells us about today.

The card works like cash when you insert it into the parking meter, covering the cost of your parking in three select beachfront lots.H- Five summer cocktails you can make at home, courtesy of South Florida Food And Wine.

Why doesn't someone hand out a map or coupons or movie tickets to every car stopped in traffic? Why not grab these people while they are literally sitting on our main street looking around? While they may not be able to stop for dinner or a movie at that moment, a coupon or incentive handed to them while they sit in traffic may get them back.J- Obalesque was a fan of the late cartoonist John Callahan.
I loved his stuff and bought all the books. His contempt for the conventional was right up my alley, and, from my own personal experience working and playing with disabled people, right on target.K- Americans approve of health care reform by a large margin, according to this post from The Reid Report.
Unique. We’ll never see his likes again. Callahan broke his own back at age 21, but they broke the mold right after his birth.
