Another great weekend comes to a close. The South Florida blogosphere was busier than normal for a Sunday afternoon so I have a decent evening Sift for you. Enjoy!
A- Miami Urbanist shows us the strange fence that has recently been erected in Belle Meade.
B- Long Play Miami documents the Miami music legend named Henry Stone.
Stone had moved to Miami from Los Angeles where he was selling records to jukebox operators. Miami, though, seemed like a good place to do it his own way, be independent. He started a record distribution company from a warehouse on West Flagler Street not far from Overtown. He also kept a recording machine there which came in handy.C- South Beach, 1914...at The305.Com.
In 1950, he encountered a young, Ray Charles performing at a nearby club. After the show, the two got to talking.
D- South Florida Food and Wine chats with Master Sommelier Virginia Philip, Wine Director for The Breakers in Palm Beach.
