Sometime SFDB commenter LAX2MIA has himself a food blog and recently did a post that documented the smells of Miami as he pedaled along with the rest of the Miami Critical Mass group.
After the bridge we descended into one of Little Havana's main arteries, Flagler St. It's almost immediate what you smell. You smell fried. It was a thick smell of things frying. And looking around you see why. Fritangas abounded surrounding the bastion of fried seafood in Miami, La Camaronera. For the rest of the night I felt like I'd ridden through an invisible cloud of grease. I think if NOAA would take an air sample of the air on Flagler St. it'd come up with an inordinate number of parts per million of peanut oil, canola oil, and lard. This part of the ride went fairly close to the Marlins ballpark, but there was not way the smell of peanuts and Cracker Jack was going to break the barrier of of fried.Make sure read the entire thing here.
Critical Miami takes an in-depth look at Miami-Dade's ban on pit bulls. Anyone who reads this blog knows what I think of pit bulls but Critical Miami's stats and logic makes some sense to me.

Art of Miami is a big fan of Miami "button artist" Augusto Esquivel, which is a good thing because readers get to see a lot of his amazing work. For instance, check out Esquivel's "buttoned" Mona Lisa that is featured here. More of Esquivel's intriguing pieces can be viewed by clicking over to Art of Miami posts here and here.
