The SFDB Weekend Widget is running at full steam in the right sidebar and tomorrow is Friday. It's a good day. Here's your morning Sift.
A- Twenty new photos are up this morning at The Street.
B- Free food from Ms. Cheezious today, according to Coconut Grove Grapevine.
Dickies, the work clothing company, is celebrating their 90th birthday. To celebrate, they are partnering with food trucks in various cities. Miami is one and Ms. Cheezious, Reader's Choice in the Miami New Times as "Best Food Truck," is the truck! It's called the "90 Years Strong Tour."C- Miami Condo Investments posts some renderings showing the 1101 Brickell project that got some press yesterday.
The tour is hitting six markets around the country, handing out lunches, discounts and a chance to win free Dickies gear. And today, July 19, free lunch (sandwich and a beverage and fries) will be given out!
D- The South Florida Theatre Scene releases their weekend preview of theater shows this morning.
E- Your must-see video this morning is at Eye on Miami.
F- Bark Bark Woof Woof gives us his opinion of Willard Romney but he might as well be talking about the entire Republican Party.
John McCain had a lot of flaws as a candidate, and I'm really very happy that he is still in the Senate, but at least he had the courage to face down the rabid nutsery and refused to go along with their lunacy. When faced with the same opportunity to turn down the rhetoric -- a woman in Bowling Green, Ohio, referred to the president as a "monster" -- Mr. Romney demurred, saying essentially, "Well, I wouldn't go that far...."
The man is a coward, pure and simple. We know he hasn't got the courage of his own convictions -- pro-choice/pro-life, pro-gay/anti-gay, pro-healthcare reform/anti-healthcare reform -- all in an attempt to make himself what someone else wants so he can win. But this is even more craven. Mr. Romney is afraid of his own followers, and that's not something to aspire to as a leader.
