FL. Fling

Flew down to Fort Lauderdale early Friday morning for a Saturday bat mitzvah party for one of the OG’s camp friends. Highlights of the trip included:

A nice car.

A walking tour of Miami’s Art Deco district (it must have been something when Gable and Lombard were hanging out , but now it reeks of Spring Break and Bourbon Street), including lunch on the patio at one of the tourist traps on Ocean Boulevard.

A pizza/hero dinner at the Florida location of Pittsburgh’s Primanti Brothers, with the fries inside the sandwich.

An Airboat trip on the Everglades at Sawgrass Recreation area (alligators and ospreys aplenty).

An excellent dinner at an Italian restaurant in the cute downtown area (Potato encrusted snapper with white bean and sausage ragout for me, spaghetti and meatballs for the OG).

Not as much sunshine as we’d hoped, but enjoyable nonetheless.
