I'll have more tomorrow about tonight's Christmas on Las Olas debacle where sweaty people were outnumbered only by strollers. I'm thinking it's going to be a few years before I brave that BS again. Too harsh? Yeah, well, you had to be there. Here's your evening Sift.
A- Brickell Life starts us off tonight with a few images from around South Florida.
There is a little bit of everything in here from the long weekend including Thanksgiving dinner, a 7-mile run up Rickenbacker Causeway, sunsets over Deering Bay, the Gold Coast Train Museum in South Dade, fried pickles and sunrises around Brickell Key.B- Eater Miami tells us about an all-you-can-eat stone crab deal that you can get on Fridays at Kitchen 305.
C- Beached Miami has much more on the Liberty City Farmer's Market that Miami on the Cheap first told us about yesterday.
D- One of Miami Favs' favs is Jaxson's ice cream.
What is the core mission of the Liberty City Farmers’ Market?
Melissa Contreras: The core mission is to actually to bring more healthy food options to a food desert, which is Liberty City and the Little Haiti area, where there just aren’t that many healthy food options or many grocery stores. Most people get their food at corner stores, which is generally processed food. There’s just not enough access to fresh food.
jaxson’s really is amazing. the ice cream is delicious. and it’s such a fun and relaxed atmosphere. it’s kind of random that you feel like you’re sitting in a parking lot. but, alas. you pretty much are. and although it is random, it also just feels right.E- Coral Gables Watch claims city employees are at risk.
I have yet to see a single worker with protective equipment, such as earplugs, operating high decibel noisy equipment. The equipment includes mounted lawnmowers and gas powered leaf blowers and grass trimers. Also, I have observed lawnmowers being driven on the main streets.F- REVMiami reports in from last night's SIN exhibition at BAC. Photos are included.
Overall the BAC experience met my expectations, they always deliver a killer event: stand out artwork, good people, access to artists and their studios, and great live music.G- All Purpose Dark describes the scene at last night's Soho House beach barbecue.
Typical ensemble: crayola-red pants, leather moccasins (no socks), pastel sweater tied around the shoulders. Also, a few extras from an episode of Schprockets.H- Holiday decorations are being put up all around the Grove, as Coconut Grove Grapevine shows us.
The grub: delicious mini hamburgers that were too few and far between, spicy lamb skewers, truffle pizzas, chips and salsa.
I- Random Pixels gives the Herald a thumbs up for a few stories but also has a few thumbs downs to deliver.
J- GastroPod #2 is hitting the streets just in time for Art Basel, says Mango&Lime, who also has a schedule.
Chef Jeremiah had been toying around with the idea of launching a second trailer for a while but it all went into motion on the drive back to Miami from New York after the Star Chefs conference. He stopped in South Carolina where the person who built the first gastroPod mentioned that he had another trailer that could be ready in a short amount of time. Those were the magic words..
“We thought: what a cool thing it would be for our first year anniversary to come out with the second one,” he said.
