EAST Miami

Welcome to the East…. said in the tune of the old Wyclef song of the same name. With Hurricane Irma looming on the horizon, it’s a little unreal to think back through my mostly sunny weekend in Miami. Having moved away from SoFL a few years ago, when I return to see friends, I pretty…

Restaurant Review:  Bird and Bone

As far as hotel restaurants go, the Bird and Bone at The Confidante is definitely up there. It’s super low-key, has excellent service (and should for an automatic 20% across Miami), and the food. Oh. the. food. And the name, cheeky AF, so you know I love it. Over a three-day weekend, I managed three…

It’s Friday, I’m in Love…

..with Miami! While, I don’t regret moving away from the madness, I still subscribe that three days down there is the perfect cure for what ails you. Certainly, cured me of a brutal last couple of weeks. So I share with you, my little loves of the Magic City.. A good hotel. A cool room…

Restaurant Review: Doa

My first night in Miami over the weekend was spent, blissfully watching the sun set over the city and attempting to catch up with girlfriends over the more-than-conversation level of DJ music at the Standard’s gorgeous outdoor bar. Restaurant ideas for dinner were tossed around and we all settled on Doa, the newest outpost of…

Bienvenue à Miami

A crummy string of events last Friday had me jonsing for some good girlfriends. I reached out to the Miami crew to see who might be in town this weekend. Turns out everyone was (and responded immediately) and even the kids from NYC were around! A flight booked and 30 minutes to shower and pack……

So What Else Happened During Lady Week, You Ask….?

We ate all of the fish in the sea. Though this was hands down my favorite dish of the week – a tiny washboard filled with half salmon tartar and half tuna tartar. It was served with crazy lotus flowers and rice crackers. Zuma is still one of my favorite Miami spots. The Perez Art…

Talde & The Thomspon, Miami

A few weeks ago I decided that I needed to take my high strung, anxious ass and spend some quality time with the girlfriends who I’ve been texting incessantly. Miami or bust! I was to stay with a friend last night, but a strange chain of events led me to seek shelter on the beach…

Romantic Pursuits

While in Miami, one of my female friends insisted that I hop on the Tinder because she ff legit suitors in favor of a girls weekend in Miami, I waited until I was drunk in the airport on the way home and racked up quite the body count swiping right. Here are my favorites in…

Bienvenido a Miami

Newsflash! I spent a long weekend in Miami. It was really quite fun and I love my friends. I met a few new people, learned much about camel farms, received a green card marriage proposal, Shazaamed the shit out of bars, made little progress on a tan, saw that the lizards had relocated, and enjoyed…

A Sentence About Miami

Desperately missing my girlfriends, and with the beau in other lands for a few weeks, I decide to fly across a pink striped sky. Upon arrival, I was whisked to a perfect rooftop pool for a bottle of wine and much overdue conversation – night swimming was amiss!   The next morning I enjoyed a…
