Miami is to me...
Miami native who moved (not by choice) away in 2000. I hope to return at some point in the not-too-distant future. I'm a radio DJ/producer (it's a sickness, believe me) who also does web design and a little writing on the side.

This truly is THE Magic City, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. There's no place like Miami, and no place better.

Posted on Thu, 03.20.2008 @ 00:04While the famous "Sweet 16" love story legend is romantic, there's another theoretical explanation of Leedskalnin's motivations that isn't quite so well-known and, if true, may very well be the answer to several questions about not just his motivation to build Coral Castle, but also HOW he built it. The theory is this: Edward had discovered how to use magnetism and some as-yet-unknown form of science to create some sort of anti-gravity system. The keys TO that system -- what laws of nature are involved and how to make it work -- are left in clues throughout the castle and it's property. The theory puts it that "Sweet 16" was not, as the love story goes, his fiancée Agnes Scuffs, but rather was a key element in one of the mathematical formulas required to make this mysterious force work. Now, of course, it's advised to take this with a grain of salt. All the theory is based on is anecdotal evidence, hearsay and assumption. However, those jigsaw pieces, when put together, can be rather convincing. The problem is that no one has been able to put the puzzle together. Until someone tries and finds either success or failure, it's still just a theory. Questions do remain, however, about just HOW Leedskalnin accomplished such a massive undertaking on his own, as conventional explanations don't quite add up, and Edward himself would never explain to ANYONE outright how he did it. In any case, the attraction itself is rather interesting, even if it is a bit of a tourist trap.... Read more
Posted on Wed, 03.19.2008 @ 23:15A fantastic little piece of old Miami right in the heart of the new Miami. If you're into history, sailing or just plain need a calm moment in the constant South Florida rush, The Barnacle is the place to go. Catching one of the tours is an absolute must.... Read more

Posted on Wed, 03.19.2008 @ 22:56Aventura and Bal Harbour are your best bets. Aventura is my preference, but Bal Harbour is a nice change every once in a while. Also, you might want to note that Broward Mall is now WESTFIELD Broward Mall. It recently (as of early 2008) underwent a large renovation and changed hands in terms of ownership twice, hence the redirect when you go to browardmall.com. The new URL is: http://westfield.com/broward/... Read more
Posted on Wed, 03.19.2008 @ 22:26No Bamboo Garden on the list? This place is a favorite for most locals, at least in the northern portions of Dade County. Classic Chinese cuisine with a few surprises thrown in for good measure. Try the garlic eggplant; it's wonderful. And I definitely have to give my thumbs-up to Laurenzo's. Best Italian food you'll find in all of South Florida, whether you want to cook a meal or let them do it for you.... Read more
