I spent some time updating the SFDB Weekend Widget in the right sidebar this morning so check that out right after you digest your morning Sift. Enjoy.
A- Sex and the Beach profiles a unique New York deli located in the heart of Hialeah.
Stephen's Deli is an anomaly in a predominantly Latino community. The establishment, which I reckon serves the best pastrami and corned beef south of Katz's in New York City, is caught in a time warp here in our ever-evolving South Florida. Perhaps some goddess of good nosh is blessing everything east of the Palmetto with rye, pumpernickel, matzoh and mustard.B- The Miami Bike Scene has a Be On The Lookout for 4 beautiful bikes that were recently stolen.
C- Culture Designers spends a few minutes with Beached Miami's Jordan Melnick as they prepare to celebrate their 2-year blogaversary.
If you had to sum up Beached’s mission in a sentence (or three), what would it be?D- Hello, I'm Scott talks diet and the movie Food, Inc.
A good catchall for Beached Miami is that it challenges the fun-and-sun stereotype of Miami without pretending that that stereotype is utterly false. We cast a critical eye on Miami culture and we do our best to contribute to local awesomeness in various ways, including by throwing fun events (like the one on Saturday) and launching innovative online projects, most notably SketchyMiami.
I know some of you will say (or have said), “Oh, I don’t need to watch a movie about the cruelty to animals. I know about it already.” But this movie is not about that. It covers it, no doubt. And you should be aware of that aspect without question. But it covers much more in depth the politics and economics involved in the food industry. And the nature of the food industry as it not only impacts our environment but our own individual (and collective) health as well.
