Google Reader has been causing me fits since last night so I apologize if I've missed any posts. Hopefully, the geniuses out in California can get things corrected before the end of the day. Enjoy your morning Sift.
A- Political Cortadito speculates as to what today's Dolphins stadium announcement will be.
Ladra suspects that the price tag is going to come down. We are going to be sold a discount offer at around $100 million, — give or take $10 mil — which is a lot, but only half of what was originally asked for from the public pockets. We could be introduced to a community partner, perhaps. Someone we trust. And there may be more promised perks. Who knows what will be dangled before our eyes. Jobs? Traffic improvements? A baseball academy (ahem)?B- So you say you wanna get a feel for what the Green Parrot Bar in Key West is like?
C- Beached Miami notes Miami's burgeoning tech scene and chats with an expert about it.
Of course, despite these green shoots, Miami is no Silicon Valley. But these promising first steps conjure a future in which the city takes it place alongside San Francisco, New York, Boston, and the other tech hubs as an urban incubator of innovative technology and game-changing ideas.D- The Resurrection Fern...at Go Hydrology!
E- Pizza Time makes a decent Sicilian Pizza even though the waitstaff carries a bad accent, according to Worst Pizza.
We ordered a Sicilian Pie and some Garlic Knots and began our wait. I was absolutely amazed how fake of an accent our waiter put on. I asked him if he was from Brooklyn or something, and he said nope “I am from Florida”. One thing I am quite certain about, is that people from Florida do not talk the way this guy talks. He must have watched way too many gangster films when he was younger.F- Bark Bark Woof Woof has the latest reason why I rarely listen to what most Republicans have to say these days.
