So I guess you're making your way here from the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics. Well, you'll be glad you stopped by because I have a helluva evening Sift for you and a fantastic SFDB Weekend Widget brimming with items in the right sidebar. Relax and enjoy your Sift.
A- Under the Sun has yet another good story from Hurricane Andrew, this one about things lost and found.
B- The 11 most missed dearly departed Miami restaurants, according to Eater Miami readers.
C- The Green Parrot does a wonderful thing for the family of a man that was part of Key West history.
D- Arboles Libres releases a new album and you can listen to it at Beached Miami.
E- Burger Beast loves him some Rebel House.
Rebel House continues the same greatness that I’ve found at Charm and el Jefe. The dishes are well thought out and the flavors are all there. Is everything perfect? No but it’s close and like any good Chef, he’s constantly tweaking here and there to make the dishes as great as possible.F- PhinPhanatic attends the first day of Dolphin training camp.
The Phins broke off onto each half of the field as I scrambled into tweeting position. Moore led the first team from the middle of the field to the north endzone as David Garrard used the southern half. One of the first things I noticed was Garrard connecting with Michael Egnew, who made a nice catch in traffic. Shortly after, Chad Johnson, made a reception, delivered by Moore and Pat Devlin came in for Garrard, and threw the day’s first interception. Johnson was intense, exchanging words with the defensive backs. I described him as “feisty” in a tweet. I’m not sure whether he was being playful or ultra-competitive.G- Curbed Miami highlights a great comment of one of their Bal Harbour readers that remembers the simpler days in that city.
At this point, my I-Pad stopped responding due to the heat.
H- Shorter Gun Free Zone...
The writers of the Constitution wanted to insure that Americans also have the right to "large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition."I- Eye on Miami says the Herald got their story wrong then deleted Eye on Miami's comment when they pointed it out to them.
