It was a nice, relaxing day around the SFDB HQ today topped off with some time on the back patio overlooking the lake. Tonight...dinner on South Beach. Here's your evening Sift, readers.
A- Beached Miami posts some images from last night's Primus concert.
B- On Two Shores has the election results from Miami-Dade that Cuban-American hardliners are afraid to talk about.
From a narrative point of view, these numbers should have Ninoska and Mauricio running for the Pepto-Bismol.C- As part of their Old School Sundays feature, The305.Com takes a look at the Lincoln Theater as it appeared decades ago before it became the new H&M store.
D- South Florida Classical Review didn't think much of the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba concert in West Palm Beach last night.

F- Bark Bark Woof Woof shares some thoughts on Armistice Day, which is celebrated today.
In deference to the inevitable, I’ll be posting about Veterans Day tomorrow, but I think it’s important to remember that day not just for the men and women who served, but to mark the end of the “war to end all wars” that actually led to the reprisals and economic conditions that inevitably led to the worst war in our history.
