10 Best Pancakes In Miami

Repost “10 Best Pancakes in Miami”  from the Miami New Times by Maureen Aimee Mariano – There are a few breakfast foods that make us truly happy. One, though, is this quick combo of eggs, flour, milk, and baking powder. They remind us of our childhood. They give us an excuse to eat dessert in the morning. They allow us to drizzle on an infinite amount of syrup. And most of all, they pair so well with our café con leche….

UM ventures through Coconut Grove

Repost from The Miami Hurricane by Melissa Soto. Miami is home to diverse cultures, delectable foods and an upbeat nightlife. Walking down Ocean Drive on South Beach or strolling through parts of Brickell near downtown is a great way to take in the city sites.

The monthly event will feature arts, eats, fashion shows, and other right-brain recreation — all kicking off this weekend, on…

THE GROVE IS ALL ABOUT THE PEOPLE … THE GROVEITES

Repost from The Miami Herald | By: Andres Viglucci Once upon a distant time, the village center of old Coconut Grove was so anything-goes mellow that a blind man — folk-rock star Jose Feliciano, to be specific — could pedal a bicycle a short way down the street without fear of running into anything. That was long ago, during a near-mythical age when hippies, artists, writers and folk singers mixed in the streets, the cafes and the jungly neighborhood cottages…

Coconut Grove Waterfront Plan Goes To Miami Voters

By iCoconutGrove | Repost from ANDRES VIGLUCCI AND CHARLES RABIN | The Miami Herald     On the picturesque but cluttered Coconut Grove waterfront, a ramshackle marina, a seafood restaurant well past its prime and a funky if beloved watering hole known as Scotty’s Landing today occupy seven acres of choice public land next to Miami City Hall.

It’s a far cry from Scotty’s Landing, the watering hole that has drawn a steady stream of patrons to Dinner Key for more than three decades. But it may soon become a reality. Scotty’s lease is up, and Miami city…
