My shadow skating on Venetian Causeway early this afternoon, during my weekly blade from Miami Beach to Coconut Grove.
The New Miami continues to rise from yesterday’s forgotten warehouses and flophouses. Biscayne Boulevard’s complete makeover is advancing rapidly.

Last Thursday night at Nikki Beach held lots of promise. Things were grooving along with the huge lineup that was being broadcast live on Sirius. However, the venue got too popular and the Miami Beach Fire Department showed up. Seeing a rather crowded situation, they politely asked people to step outside to the beach area, where, unfortunately sporadic rain showers were erupting. Attempts to talk one’s way back in were unsuccessful – the MBFD really does not care who you are or who you know, or what list you are on. They really don’t! Late night got cranking again, but with a smaller crowd.
24/7 Party People !
