  Here we are at the last stop of my Miami trip with legendary international salesman of the year Matt Kennedy.  Puerto Sagua has been around for a long, long, long time folks.  I’m not talking Miami Vice times, dial it all the way back to pre-Scarface times.  Since 1962 Puerto Sagua has been serving Cuban cuisine like the Cuban sandwich, and of...

  Why am I showing you a YouTube of the Transformers theme song?  Because one of the opening lines of the song is “more than meets the eye” which is exactly how I felt pulling up to this Upper East Side Miami Eatery.  All I saw was a neon sign on the outside of this restaurant connected to an old motel with a small parking lot.  Certainly not...

One of the things I enjoyed most about Miami Beach were the bicycle rentals that could be found throughout the city.  For $10 bucks you can rent a bicycle and ride it anywhere for 2 hours.  The traffic laws on Miami Beach are very conducive to cyclists as well.  Towards the end of my 2 hour block, I came upon a rental station and this place caught my eye,...

Day one in Miami, after all of my research online on best breakfast spots in the area, my plan was to make my way to Espandola Street and try out A La Folie Cafe, however when I arrived, they were shooting a movie or T.V show in front of the eatery, and they had just lost their electricity.  I decided to check out a place close by, and Oh Mexico was the winner....

I loved my recent visit to City Hall the Restaurant while visiting  Miami, Florida.  They offer some great lunch time options, but with a twist.  For example instead of appetizers from the menu, they called them “Opening Statements”  The first thing on the menu caught my eye, “City Hall uncovential French onion soup”.  Well I love French...

This week I had to opportunity to travel from sunny Salt Lake City, to sunny (wait for it….)  Miami!   I swear that driving out of the rental car lot from the airport in my sporty white Jetta I felt just like Will Smith a.k.a “Welcome to Miami, Bienvenido a Miami” .  Of course my primary reason for taking this trip was business, but if that...
