No trick or treaters last night which means tonight's dinner is a serving of Reese's cups, accompanied by some Twizzlers and a 3 Musketeers bar. Still trying to decide on dessert. Here's your evening Sift.
A- Eye on Miami posts a video of yesterday's voter enthusiasm in North Miami.
I read in the Miami Herald that Penelope Townsley, the Election Supervisor went down to North Miami and spent the day there Tuesday, probably in response to the NAACP and others complaining in an email. Her appearance must have paid off because things were running smoothly there when I went about 5:30pm. There was a 2 hour wait, but they were moving along and the staff seemed quick to move new people in.B- November is the month for Miami French Spice, according to I Heart Miami.
This year, for its 3rd edition, French Spice will once again highlight French cuisine and the experience of French dining.C- For Worst Pizza, four cents is apparently a deal breaker when it comes to pizza.
The slices at Manhattan Joe’s cost $2.50, and although that is still a bit high, it is still cheaper than many of the competitors around them. But when coupled with a soda, the bill came out to $5.04 which is just too much for a lunch. Most other places give you two slices and a soda for $5.00.D- The Instapix Pic of the Week is up at Beached Miami.
E- How you can get your own Miami Heat Championship Ring, at The305.Com.
F- If you love Keg South, you'll like Hole in the Wall Pub in Palmetto Bay, reports Burger Beast.
This now brings me to what I was thinking: Hole in the Wall Pub is great BUT as a long time Keg South fan you can’t shake the similarities. I had been told it’s owned by a former Keg South manager which makes sense as everything including the decor seems familiar. The food is great and at the end of the day, isn’t that what it’s all about?G- On Two Shores opines on Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's endorsement of the troubled David Rivera.
Yesterday, Congresswoman – and grown-up Honey Boo Boo lookalike – Ileana Ros-Lehtinen half-heartedly endorsed embattled Congressman David Rivera through, not an op-ed or campaign appearance, but an email to El Nuevo Herald.H- Salty Eggs answers the question that everyone has been asking: "What is Miami Live Music Month?"
Despite other past fly-by-night events mostly backed by outsiders (see: the short-lived, disastrous “Miami Music Festival”), this booster effort is locally grown. Sponsored by the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, the month is less about a specifically promoted event and more about boosterism for events and venues already going strong.
