A- On Two Shores explains how Cuban-American politicians are preventing the spread of democracy in Cuba.
If a private sector were sprouting in any other authoritarian country, the U.S. would be first in line to support it. Lucky for Castro, our policy toward Cuba is controlled by Senator Menendez and his inexplicably dense Cuban-American friends in Congress – people who prefer to hold on to their “pressure cooker” pipe-dream, than seize a glaring opportunity to kick the proverbial door of “change” wide open by helping Cuban entrepreneurs increase their independence from the state.B- South Florida Guy recommends Organic Brewery on Hollywood Beach.
First came the ice cold stout in a frozen mug just the way it should be. Oh yes - This is what fine beer making is supposed to taste like. Next a plate of the best German sausages and authentic, fresh baked soft pretzel I've had in a very long time. A little side of dipping mustard just to make it perfect.C- Miami Urbanist gives us a first look at the new TSL Lounge and The Butcher Shop in Wynwood.
A historic 1927 single family home has been preserved and retrofitted and now houses the TSL indoor and outdoor lounge. There is a full bar inside and out with a projector screen on the outside wall.D- Random Pixels looks back to 1928 when Al Capone made his first visits to Miami Beach.
