Welcome to Hump Day, readers. Hard to believe that we're halfway through the last week of March. I have a beefy morning Sift for you so away we go.
A- The305.Com recommends the Churrasco Relleno de Mofongo at El Rinconcito de Santa Barbara in Hialeah.
However, El Rinconcito de Santa Barbara, a Puerto Rican restaurant and cafeteria located in West Hialeah serves one of the best non-homemade mofongos I ever had. Maybe because it was prepared in a more Dominican style.B- Ten new photos at The Street.
C- Obalesque is desperately searching for a car with a stick shift.
Why stick shifts have become endangered species is completely beyond me, especially when the price of gas is $4/gallon, but then again, I was delighted using DOS and WordPerfect, and I prep to shave with a mug of shaving soap and a beaver tail brush. I was an old fart years before I got old. I was born an old fart. I want to shift gears. So sue me. Or just point, giggle, and sneer. Say — isn’t that an accounting firm?D- Miami Condo Investments has a few downtown Miami rental listings to give you an idea of what the market is like these days.
E- Spokes 'n' Folks reviews one Miami architect's vision of the Rickenbacker Causeway as a park road.
Zyscovich said that when he started his self-assigned causeway project he approached it pretty much in terms of bicycle safety. But he wasn't satisfied, in part because his fellow cyclists, however numerous, are only part of the community that uses the causeway for work and pleasure. So he stepped back and looked at what the causeway represents to greater Miami -- a precious recreational asset in and adjoining a city that needs more parks.F- Belle Isle Blog discusses plans for a new West Ave bridge and how it will affect surrounding neighborhoods.
The Florida Department of Transportation and the city of Miami Beach released recommendation for a West Avenue Bridge that would connect Sunset Harbour and West Avenue behind Epicure over the Collins Canal. Presented at a public hearing Tuesday night at the Miami Beach Regional Library, engineers recommended a crossing with one northbound lane, one southbound lane, a southbound left-turn lane on to 17th Street and bike-pedestrian lanes in each direction.G- Beached Miami posts some deleted scenes from past Rakontur flicks.
H- Punditry on the Supreme Court's review of the Affordable Care Act is not in short supply, according to Bark Bark Woof Woof.
This kind of overthinking happens when there's a lot of heat but very little light on the subject; everyone knows what the arguments are, but no one knows how the Court will rule, and the networks have to justify all their time on the air and the money spent on consultants. That's one reason why there's so much guessing going on; it keeps people tuned in, and that means they can sell more commercial time.
