Luisa Navarro commented on "How To Be A Night Club Promoter… (for Dummies)"

I am a promoter from Texas.  I have a question I got offered a spot in a night club to take djs from 9-11:45 pm. Since the owner wants to keep his headliner, how can I manage to attract people? Any name ideas for Friday night will help I’m trying to bring the funky, house scene keep it alive but the headliner plays electronic music. Which is hard.

we had a party at the beach where I live with my department at work and to my surprise
wow most of the women in no time flat were topless or just plain nude.  Really gives a different prospective when the gal you sit next to is there showing you her bare breast or totally nude.  After that an many of us got drunk sex was ramped The next day when I went to work one of the gals asked me why I didn’t have sex with her and several of the other gals.  Later my woman manager called me in and told me I need to become part of the group and next time I need to participate.  I work with 15 women and there are only 3 guys including me.  Since that time I have been invited to lunch and nights out and told to get with the program.  These are all college graduates and high level engineers or programers.  Well who says guys are the aggressive sex.  Yea the last party I did 3 of the gals and next day was told how nice I was and they were looking forward to be being at a weekend long retreat.

E11even,, yes. Just be forewarned it’s not so much a strip club but a club with strippers. Does that make sense? You can go and have a totally club-like evening, but ya know maybe tuck some bucks while you’re at it. But it’s just topless, FYI

Yes, the warm ocean and the tropical winds are absolutely awesome.

Yes we all know that. SoFlo has its stifling Cuban/hispanic env. and the approaching 3rd world ethos. It would be better with more Asians and other cultures to balance. Yes well most communities have to deal with the out of control hood rats. It is unfortunate.
I still think that warm waters and beaches in Miami are second only to Hawaii in USA. I don’t know about SoCal in that respect.

calicojack commented on "Comparing California to Florida? There IS No Comparison"

A variety of social branches is present in both places. However, in my opinion only, every time i travel to Florida coming from San Diego, I do feel a degree of culture shock for a while. Kept hearing, “Dont be surprised, it is the dirty south”, highly noticeable on any giving weekend in south beach or on the infamous Memorial Day weekend debacle. I just feel that California as a whole has more diversity, variety and an overall better balance. In the end, this all is ultimately a matter of opinion suffice.

Aaron commented on "Comparing California to Florida? There IS No Comparison"

Giovanni thanks. But how do you compare south Florida to southern California.  That is the issue. Northern half of both states is not the same as south.

Giovanni commented on "Comparing California to Florida? There IS No Comparison"

I lived in FL for 7 yrs, initially moved there from Massachusetts in 2004. Left in 2011 to go to California due to a family situation with my mom getting re married to her HS sweetheart who happened to live in Oregon. She refused living there so they compromised on Sacramento area and its one of the worst places I’ve ever lived hands down. FL is much better than North Central California toward Reno. People can say FL has rednecks but believe me, this place has just as many, maybe more! And they are worse because at least a FL cracker tells you what he thinks, out here you have to guess. That doesn’t make them real enough for me. Driving on the roads in CA are horrible also and this is in the parts further up from SF too! Its not just a SF or L.A thing. Its here too. So if you’re thinking of moving to NorCal, DON’T DO IT. Your life will not be better. Stay where you’re at. Less jobs, clanny provincial rednecks GALORE. I thought FL was bad UNTIL I saw this hellhole of an area. It might as well just be Oregon to the south. Progressive?? Last I checked FL was more progressive, had more gay bars. That isn’t my thing but people can’t be more wrong when they say FL has no culture or anything progressive. I doubt this area a LOT more trust me.

People in here I feel are being paid to say things in favor of CA because some are so untrue I had to laugh. One was, when they went to FL, found rude people everywhere, nobody has manners, you’ll get run off the road and so on. Lack of culture, more rednecks. Well all I have to say is take a look in your own backyard back in CA! Sure it may seem like theres diversity in CA with Asians, Mexicans, white, black but guess what its not. In fact I find it far more harder to interact in California everywhere I been than anywhere in FL.. This is fact. And I also find it more segregated also. Can anyone believe it?? FL could very well be more liberal than California!!??

The only place that rivals California to me in rudeness is my homestate of MA. Cost of living is the same also or even more in CA and people are just as fast paced on the left coast. FL is more laid back than both of them put together. If picking between MA and CA, I pick MA but I pick FL over both of these. In fact I tried moving to MA again also FROM CA. I just couldn’t get along with my dad so for the 3rd time I had to move to CA. I didn’t know how Auburn would be until I started living here for 3 months, but it really sucks here and its even worse in Grass Valley or Nevada City OMG and all the freaks too.. I want to be in the Sarasota area way more. Northern California is a suckhole that doesn’t do a damn thing for me. Also in Auburn where I live, trailor parks everywhere! I could swear its like a FL cracker area only worse in some regards. At least many areas with trailor parks in FL have tons to do if you go down the street and can give a whole new outlook (Like St Pete/Tampa) . In this town, theres just a few bars, a few stores, country stores and not much else and everything closes early too.

Also I hate those stupid bicyclists in their funny looking spandex suits. I see way more of those out here than I did in FL. More “green” folks and what not and they are obnoxious about it.

So to everyone here posting, you have seen an alternate post you have not seen yet in here from someone whos had an even different experience.

Hi Matt, 

I have relied on this site for the past few years for a variety of different visits (guys weekend, business trip, weekend awsy with wife) and you have never steered me wrong. A few years ago me and the wife stayed in FLL and had a GREAT time at Scarlett’s following your recommendation. This past weekend we were in town but staying in South Beach and when we got an urge to maybe check out a club for fun, we just couldn’t muster up the strength to cab all the way to Hallendale. We will be back in a few months and were wondering if the is a good couples friendly club closer to South Beach than Scarlett’s?  Any feedback on E11even yet?

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

Agree with Christine. I moved to ATL from MIA, I noticed I don’t get cut off in traffic nearly as much, and no one takes their dogs into Target. Much more civilized place. To the haters, I spent 2 weeks in Mar Del Plata, it’s beautiful, and the people are wonderful, but Miami is crime, violence, corruption and nepotism.

Angeleyes commented on "Comparing California to Florida? There IS No Comparison"

Lived in Fl for over 20 years. Miami, Orlando, Daytona. Not bad outside the humidity, the hillbillies, PR and the flat boring landscape.
I have also lived in Europe, NYC, AZ, Boston, mexico and can tell you from my personal likes…that in the US there is nothing like Socal…coastal areas…period.
So there is a reason why the same house in FL is $250k and in Del mar 1.5 million…not because people are stupid to pay that kind of money for something basic…but because DEMAND…so if you like FL…great stay there. With over 15 million more people living in CA…and all the $$$$ that’s here…we don’t need rednecks.
To live in Cali and in desirable areas you have to have $$$...this is not FL…and levels above..period.

It is sad the way some folks think everyone on Earth is has some type of bias in them.Irby I know You are afraid just like Uncle Sam but it is OK God Loves You even though you pass judgment on blacks Look in the mirror and remind yourself of the person who loves to hate.You are truly a product of ignorance and hate But a SAVAGE does not know they have to be taught retrained to know the Truth Not only about History and doctrine but about one self who has a deep sickness and is willing to display that sickness to the world hate can be contagious and You poor thing I feel sorry for your soul when God will judge you .

I was only six years old when this happened and this tragedy has haunted me for years. To answer uncle Sam and his support All Blacks are not lazy or play the race card. Whites are afraid of blacks because of the dominant genes uncle Sam you are afraid of genitic annihilation. Blacks were on this planet first and will be last whites are the ones that are lazy having slaves and housekeepers .

dan frushour commented on "The 1972 Democratic and Republican Conventions (Video)"

The reason we were jumping on cars was that it was the quickest escape route from the tear gas. The front of the Fountainebleau was a tight squeeze and there was little room to maneuver. I had missed the ‘68 events in Chicago being only 12, but had no intention of missing out on this one. I was 16 and hitch-hiked down from Michigan, sleeping in Flamingo Park at night. I recall it as a dopefest with endless droning speeches from the makeshift stage that had been erected.  After a couple days of rain/heat/rain, we headed home. Not mentioned here was the presence of SCLC ‘guards’ who marshaled people around the outside of the convention site. While I do not regret my participation, I was clearly on the wrong side; fortunately and eventually I grew up. Socialism is a proven failure. Capitalism is responsible for our way of life and for the opportunities available to everyone who desires to improve their lot in life. Politicians love to talk about shiny objects (abortion, racism, income equality, gun control, etc.) that distract folks from the larger contextual issues of capitalism vs. socialism/statism and the proper role of government. Lean right and God bless the bourgeoisie.
