So the SFDB Weekend Widget is up and running in the right sidebar and the evening Sift is ready for your review. Life is good, I would say.
A- A respected Little Havana restaurant gets a makeover that helps Burger Beast better enjoy his dining experience.
B- Tropicult has Miami native Fernando Perdomo's latest and most excellent music video.
C- South Florida Classical Review lists the Top 10 Performances of 2012.
D- Eat It, Miami enjoyed Pride and Joy.
The fried pickles (which I’m told are pickled in-house) were excellent. The burnt ends (brisket tips that are removed after smoking and simmered in a sauce for another couple of hours) weren’t traditional Kansas City style which would have had them in a thick smoky barbeque sauce but were still quite good in their thinner, stock-like sauce. The pulled pork was as expected…perfectly cooked, slightly smoky and in ample portion.E- Curbed Miami apparently considers downtown Fort Lauderdale as part of "Greater Miami."
F- Where to eat at MIA, according to Eater Miami.
Although Anthony Bourdain said MIA doesn't suck as badly as some other airports, the food options there aren't exactly gourmet. That being said, there are a few gems out there if you happen to be passing through Terminal D. All of the decent eats are located past security, which could be the only good thing about that super saver airfare that has you connecting through Miami and seven other cities before you reach your destination.G- Britto has a gallery on Lincoln Road and now it appears as though Miguel Paredes is going to be his neighbor, at least for a short time...at Soul of Miami.
The gallery on Lincoln Road will display work from both artists that will be for sale along with smaller retail items from Paredes including posters, coffee mugs, journals, etc. The space will be open on Christmas Eve as well as New Years Eve for tourists or locals to stop by and/or pick up last minute gifts.
