Chris, enjoyed reading your thoroughly thought out ‘rant’, if one can call it that! I agree with most of it, however i personally, always try to find the positives and disregard the negative aspect of living in Miami/Miami Beach. Its not perfect anywhere, but after the beautiful weather for the last few days, going swimming in this amazing ocean, I easily forget the bad vibes and complex issues facing this town. But yes, you are overall spot on!

Please bear in mind that most of this was written tongue in cheek (as in, bend over while I pull the corn cob out of your ass, your UPTIGHTED-ness).  When I said “Make the move, right now baby!” I was referring to putting a FOR SALE sign on a house and making tracks up 95.  Just clearing the air a bit before the smoke of battle ensues.  I am that nice guy that lets you in with neigh but an 1/8 inch of room between me and your rear bumper (though not a charity mssion on wheels).  I neither curse nor do I write paeans about this town..whether or not it espouses the virtues of a place “world-class” means a shit’s bit of difference.  When you survived a 10-hour surgery with eight syllables, wherein the validity of your very existence is questioned (I mean to say, it was RISKY), the virtues WITHIN and not WITHOUT take priority.  Long story short, you pack your rotten luggage with you, and wherever you land, you will still be left with you.  Scuz-baggish caliber of a place, notwithstanding.  I figured I’d be the last one to say some crap like they tell you in a 12-step program (Wherever you go, there you fucking are).  Well I’ll be!!!  It’s the God’s honest truth.

Miami showcases a legion of dumbshits, on a good day. On a bad day degenerate cowards. The standards of its “dialect”, really a piss-poor take on English that makes Jamaican “patois” seem Shakespearean, lower themselves the moment someone decides to “make that move, right now baby!!” (A tad retro but since everyone jerks off to “Tainted Love”, by Soft Terd..whoops..cell who cares)  If this incites a riot among you the reader; have fun getting your rocks off.  Just bear in mind that to someone whose elevator opens up to a foyer of a double-decker apartment; making sure Winthrop the driver arrives on time without the dog shitting on the rug in the interim looms of larger importance.  Incidentally, I have lived in Kendall, (yes, that fave;a) my entire 38 years and the prospects of being forced to spread my mother’s ashes in the Kendale Lakes park, as opposed to Central Park where she grew up near has me clenching the speed-dial for the doctor who prescribes me my Klonopin.  Remember, that vast divide separating the suburbanites from the Star Island/Grove Isle winner’s circle of Jewish all-stars….ooops?  Did I take a shot at Jews, how horribly non-politically correct I have become.  Which is perfectly fine since I myself am Jewish.  And it is the Jews with the money who really run the place, the ones in their proverbial high towers moving chess pieces around and laughing at each and every checkmate, cleverly disguised as the sound of a golf-ball tee-off (not really true, but fun to indulge one’s mind with, yes?)  And I love the Cuban culture, adore the beat of the mambo, but find the Miami “disambiguation of things” overly drenched in its own “mojito”, ju know, when the prospect of having a dialogue about how things suck is swept under the rug that damn dog from the double-decker condo shit on!  Much love to the world, Chris grin

Im pretty sure that this article was solemnly posted for the purpose of sacarstic enteratainment.People on the internet get so defensive over the smallest of things SHEESH.Anywho,with that being said, one of the few things that I’ve found to be true on here (since i am a miamian born a raised) is that the jobs down here do not pay for the cost of living. An one bedroom apartment can easily run you from 800-2000 dollars which is insane for someone working 10-15 dollars part time (if even that much.)

I am a 62 year old male and I have made plans to go to Malache from 12/21 -1/2/15 by myself. Your writings have so inspired me. I felt good about making the reservation as I really didn’t know what I wanted to do. Its like an Angel directed me here. Thank you so much for validating my vacation choice.

Katie commented on "25 Things You Must Know Before Moving to Miami"

Did this author spend all his time on the Beach or something? As a born and raised Miamian, I’ve always had friends who read a ton and would rather hang out at Books & Books with a glass of wine rather than go clubbing. I have a feeling that the author just hung out in the wrong circles…

And the stuff about Hispanics is so, so racist. I’m kind of in shock. Seriously?

Though that stuff about the cost of living versus the average salary is spot-on.

wb commented on "The Miami River Cops Case"

My father was a friend of Rudy Arias. I remember going to his wedding when I was a little girl.  He was going to be a character witness for him at trial but then he turned states evidence.
It would be interesting to hear an update on all involved.

Mario commented on "The Reasons People Don't Like Miami: 100 Comments and Counting!"

The lowlife ghetto lazy cubans have ruined this nice city. They are the culprit of no-english loudmouthed rude customer service. I really despise them, just drive a little north to Fort Lauderdale or to Broward county and it’s another world. Typical cubans will live in a dump yet drive a brand new car and they treat everyone as if we were in their stupid third world country. I’ve met so many nice latin people that have told me the same things that they can’t stand them either.  Even if you speak spanish they will try to convince you to learn cuban spanish or the typical cuban spanglish (which is terrible and makes me cringe) I tell them I won’t adopt their expressions because we’re in the US, not cuba, so they’ll discriminate mexicans, colombians or venezuelans. I wish they were all expelled back where they belong.

JW Reed commented on "The Murder of Speedboat Builder Don Aronow"

For anyone that has any interest in the sport itself, I would suggest getting a copy of SEARACE by John Crouse. 

This is the most formidable text that outlines the history, people and places that may legends and heroes in the sport of Offshore Power Boat Racing.

Crouse did a phenomenal job capturing the sports most salient moments and the people who made it happen.

Of course Aronow has his place among the greatest, but so many others are often overlooked and even unknown when it comes to the celebrity factor. 

If you have any sea salt in your veins this is worth the money and should be a part of your library.

Todd Solley commented on "Tyler Weinman: Portrait of An Accused Serial Cat Killer"

I just read that the kid was exonerated.  I didn’t see the dates originally and am not sure how this article popped up in my “news” feed; but, I felt like the kid was innocent.  I hope all those people who wished Tyler ill feel bad about it.  But I doubt they do.  It’s a sad commentary on the world we live in.  Why don’t you remove this article from the web.  I think it’s terrible that this article is still up and the kid was innocent.  Did you write a big article about Tyler’s exoneration? Did you do any follow up articles on how he was affected by these awful accusations? I sure hope so.

Todd Solley commented on "Tyler Weinman: Portrait of An Accused Serial Cat Killer"

It’s sad that people are seeking vengence against an 18 year old kid.  Justice would be getting Tyler the help he needs IF he is found guilty.  Judging by some of these comments, some of you are as bloodthirsty as the perpetrator of these crimes.  For those wanting to demonize him and picket his home, how about praying for him and his family.

Lee Blair commented on "The Royal Castle Hamburger Chain Meetup"

To keep this thread active, let me add my perspective and add a question…
My family moved to Miami in 1959 and, as a pre-schooler, I was totally overjoyed by every visit to Royal Castle.  Will never forget the frozen mug and the burgers served on wax paper.  A total delight that has been sorely missed.
The question is about the Birch Beer which is not really reference in the article.  Have you been able to preserve it along with your burgers?

So I like totally read the first 10 comments and the last 1 and I’m sitting here like… So I guess it really depends on who you are in the case of “liking miami” cause I was born and raised in Texas and moved to Miami with friend and we like it completely but other people (not like us) think it is the city for staten?? LOL

Miami, specifically Miami Beach, would truly be paradise without those superficial, arrogant, self indulging, materialistic douche bags. In addition to the low class crowd that frequents south beach any given weekend, with complete disregard of their surroundings and continuous environmental abuse. It is what it is i suppose. Deal with it or leave!

Ah, it’s ok but you may wanna check ahead of time to see if it’ll be on at E11even because it’s a Saturday night. Tootsie’s is probably the best though it CAN get ghetto. Scarlett’s has TV’s too but again, call and see if they’ll have the game on.

I actually agree with the majority of your comments while I would say that miami lacks a sense of cohesion and lacks a general sense of intellect and innovation. Those who do not see this have most likely never ventured outside of Miami to other metropolitan cities that area ar more developed than miami currently is.

What would be the best club to watch the Miami Florida State game this weekend with a little eye candy on the side.  Requirements are non-ghetto and you can actually see and hear the game.

Does E11leven have a sports bar area?
