I took a walk on Fort Lauderdale Beach today and actually spotted a group of people in their bathing suits frolicking in the surf. No doubt just off a plane from Toronto. Enjoy your evening Sift.
A- Snow! Over at The Heat Lightning.
Here are some mediocre images from last night and today’s blizzard from the Boston area. It’s still snowing and very windy and I’m warm and well-fed inside.B- Eater Miami surveyed friends, industry types, local bloggers, and readers to come up with their opinions of South Florida's top restaurant newcomers for 2010.
Frodnesor, Food for Thought blogger: Sugarcane; Sakaya Kitchen (OK, opened late December 2009; still was too late for the 2009 year end survey); Gigi; Chow Down Grill. Too early to tell on several others like DB Bistro Moderne, Vino e Olio.C- The Chowfather is the first out of the box to rate South Florida's best burgers in 2010.
D- King Mango Strut photos are up at Nikon Miami.
E- Ten things to do on Virginia Key according to View from Virginia Key.
Eat. There are several restaurants, a few arepa/hot dog stands and a smoked fish joint: Rusty Pelican, the new Rickenbacker Fish House, Bayside Hut, Jimbo’s and the Hobie Beach stands. Or bring a picnic lunch. Best views are just about anywhere from the island out to aquamarine waters that surround it.F- The Reid Report takes a look at the latest polling on who Americans most admire and then how the numbers break down according to political party.
Sail. Hobie Beach has the rental boards. You’ll see the bright sails rustling in the sea breezes along the Rickenbacker Causeway. Or bring your own kayak, canoe, paddleboard. The water is crystal clear and teeming with fascinating critters.
Who people admire says a lot about them. The latest Gallup survey places President Obama on top with Democrats and Independents, while Republicans like George W. Bush most. And Democrats’ top five list is heavy on international humanitarians, while Republicans lean toward cable news and Christianity.
