A- Herald: Miami Spice update.
A Miami Spice meal at Miami’s top luxury restaurants isn’t going to be as much of a bargain this year.B- Herald: Morin.
The three-course lunch will cost $23 and dinner will run $39. That’s about a 10 percent jump over Miami Spice dinner prices last year, which rang up at $35 and just a hair over last year’s $22 lunch.
But along with raising prices, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau on Tuesday also announced that for the first time in the dining discount program’s 11 year history, there will be two tiers of pricing. Dinner at what is being called a selection of “fine dining” restaurants will run $19 for lunch and $33 for dinner.
Restaurants are classified in either the luxury or fine-dining category. All Miami Spice menus include an appetizer, entrée and dessert as part of the fixed price, which excludes tax and gratuities. The program runs Aug. 1- Sept. 30.

A delightful showD- Palm Beach Post: Life in South Florida.
It is difficult to imagine a more distorted and biased television review than Glenn Garvin’s June 24 column about The Newsroom, the new Aaron Sorkin HBO show. Because Garvin hated it so much I made a special effort to tune in and was delighted.
The show has a talented cast, an exciting story line and some important things to say about the world of television journalism. It’s going to be a very popular show in the tradition of The West Wing. My only question is how can Garvin, who worships the political right, be so wrong?
