Quick flight to Miami last night and now my view has changed to...
I had to connect in Charlotte last night, but ended up meeting 2 guys from Minneapolis. One of the guys bought our entire plane row drinks on the plane. He was already ripped when he boarded... He and his buddy missed their 1:15PM flight since they were in the bar and were on the 10:25PM flight with me as a result. The one guy was a little mouthier than his friend and started yelling at another passenger as she was trying to lift a 40+ pound bag into the already crowded, overhead compartment. "Next time pay the money and check your bag like the rest of us," he yelled to the lady 8 rows ahead. Which prompted her to yell back. The flight attendant had to come back and tell the guys to relax and leave her alone. The passenger actually threatened to talk to the pilot and have the guys removed off the plane, since they were (in her own words) "harrassing her". Yeah ~ who knows... 2 vodka sodas later, all I know, is that my allegiance was with the guys from Minneapolis. Sorry lady ~ maybe you should've checked your bag...
I'm working today, but will get out eventually to Ocean Drive to survey the scene... I'm thinking the News Cafe to start... I was in Miami for Game 5 of the Heat v Mavs series (back in June of 2006), and I saw Edgerrin James grubbing up there one day... He's no longer a favorite of mine, but since he went the "U" and he's not playing in the Super Bowl, I like my odds again ~ even though, he's no longer a Colt. Miami isn't that big, so this should be fun... I'm thinking Prime 112, Nemo's etc. will be the dinner spots of choice ~ but I will hit Lario's at least once this trip, since it's tradition and I love the ropa vieja!
At any rate, for those of you unfamiliar, here's a link: http://www.newscafe.com/ For some wild reason, the link plays Pachelbel's Canon, which (for you guys out there) is a tune often heard at weddings... Weird.
Later for now.
