Oh man--what a trip that place is. My favorite part about it is that all the concrete cannot stop the wild greenery from sprouting; even on the expressway, in between slabs of concrete, green stuff is popping out all over.

Other great things: Wild parrots in the trees...and some say monkeys too, but I never saw one.

Go drive thru Coral Gables (lovely homes)

South Beach, all of Miami Beachi, is a must

Calle Ocho--the Cuban area, good food for days

Buy a Cafe con Leche and drink up that shit for me--so delish.

Watch out for the driving; people drive like there are no rules (and this is blamed on the amount of Cubans, Haitians and Jamaicans--all of whom despise each other BTW--there).

I really have a soft spot for Florida--it is gross, but charming in many ways.

Just watch this tv show and you'll probably get the hang of it. http://www.upn.com/shows/south_beach/

On Miami Beach, go eat at Wolfie's Rascal House. It's probably the best NY Jewish-Style deli that isn't in NYC.

Make sure you get a cuban sandwich when you're on Calle Ocho (8th St.) It's a grilled sandwich with ham, some other kind of pork, cheese, and a pickle. Get that with a side of fried plantains and you'll be good to go. A great place to get it is at Versailles, which is a Miami-Cuban institution.

Check out the show listings for Churchill's Pub. http://www.churchillspub.com/contactUs.htm
They will have a good show occasionally. The Black Lips played there recently.

If you are in South Beach, and want to get insanely drunk, go to Wet Willy's. It is a small bar that has 30-40 slurpee machines filled with different flavored ice drinks mixed with grain alcohol. The one I do not recommend is called "call a cab" (their strongest drink). I could barely walk 2 blocks to my hotel after one.
