Okay, we're back in South Florida and trying to get into the swing of things. Looks Rina may be less of a threat to South Florida this weekend so don't cancel any plans that you may have made. Enjoy your evening Sift, readers.
A- Meatless Miami stops by Copper Chimney in Sunny Isles and files a review that leads off tonight's evening Sift.
I'm a sucker for the all you can eat Indian buffet, but sometimes I get myself in trouble challenging the elasticity of my stomach. Copper Chimney an Indian restaurant in Sunny Isles provides an interesting alternative. They have a buffet on Sundays for $16.95, but on weekdays from 12-4pm they offer a lunch special for $12.95. The only problem for vegans is that the six vegetarian options all have dairy as ghee (clarified butter) is a common ingredient in Indian cooking. Fortunately the server spoke to the cooks and they are able to offer several vegan options. The dinner menu was filled with even more vegetarian entrees (many of which were priced at $12), but again if you are vegan you must specially request your food not to have dairy.B- America's growing distrust of government is a step in the right direction, according to Obalesque.
So while the worldwide economy crumbles, unemployment retains its death grip on Americans’ confidence, and poverty levels in this nation skyrocket to levels unimaginable half a century ago, at least rank and file American citizens have caught on to the plain truth that our government is at best incompetent, more likely apathetic, and in numerous instances actually hostile to the welfare of the general population.C- Man or Maniac? reviews the Marco Rubio controversy and determines that Rubio is an exile.
This "sloppiness" is why I won't ever vote for him for any office. I've known a lot of "sloppy" people. It's not evidence of dishonesty, only a lack of attention to details. And in Rubio's case, some of those details are pretty important.D- Beached Miami has a truckload of images from last night's TV on the Radio concert at the Fillmore.
But Marco Rubio is unquestionably a child of exiles. Whether he's a good candidate for office is an exercise best left for the individual.
E- Spokes 'n' Folks shares the results of an interesting study on Florida drivers and cyclists.
F- Smashburger is preparing to open its first South Florida location in Coral Springs, according to the Burger Beast.
G- Nikon Miami captures a unique street art presentation somewhere in Miami.
H- Transit Miami points out some glaring misrepresentations that are being made about the viability of mass transit options for Marlins stadium attendees.
Lets be clear from the start – there is no safe, convenient or fast way of getting to the park aside from driving your car. The notion that a large portion of the 35,000 visitors to the park will come via transit is not only a joke, but is downright dishonest.
