Not a whole lot going on in the South Florida blogosphere today. Your evening Sift shouldn't take you but a couple minutes. Enjoy!
A- Worst Pizza questions Davito's Grandma pizza in tonight's lead-off post.
The slice was paper thin, and in my opinion, probably one of the thinnest grandma slices I have ever come across. There were big globs of fresh mozzarella cheese though, and I was excited to bite in and see if it was as good as the Sicilian slice I previously had here. As soon as I bit into the slice, I was like “what the heck is that?” There were whole tomato slices underneath the cheese. I don’t even like too much sauce, let alone tomatoes thicker than the crust on the pizza.B- Boy Writes Miami gives Truluck's their "hearty recommendation."
C- Eye on Miami questions Miami-Dade County Commissioner Lynda Bell's office space expenses.
County Commissioner Bell spent $28,100 on office furnishings for her new palatial district office. Like there isn't any existing Miami Dade County furniture laying around? Lynda's new district office was previously a raw space which had to be built out in order to facilitate a working office. The lease specifies that the landlord is responsible for the build-out of the space, estimated to cost $129,525.00 over a four-year period, of which the landlord will be responsible for $74,525.00. "Tenant Allowance" and the tenant are responsible for $55,000 over the four-year period ($13,750 annually).D- Miami Dish announces that the South Florida Food Swap is coming to Miami and provides an explanation for those of us that need one.
The first half hour will be for people to set up their display. Make sure to bring samples of your food. Then, there will be half an hour to mingle and scope out everyone’s foods. If you’re interested in someone’s pickles, you write your name on their bid card and suggest a trade for your homemade mango chutney. No one is obligated to accept any trades.E- Random Pixels questions Bob Norman's continued focus on Broward County since moving to his new job at WPLG and implies that Norman never crosses the Miami/Dade County line.
Now if any Random Pixels readers want to tip off Bob about graft, corruption or nefarious activities, go for it.
But, Bob is obviously very busy up there in
So why not send those tips here to me here at Random Pixels? I'll sort through them and prioritize them forward them to Bob. It's the least I can do.
Oh, one more thing Bob. When you do decide to finally come down....make sure you bring your passport.
