Thank You Miami For Brunch - The Cabana Club at Nautilus Hotel

At times, we forget what a spectacle our city truly is. Right within the precincts of our backyards lies the kind of destinations we often travel to find. Whether you’d like to admit it or not, Miami Beach is a world-class destination often overlooked by its own people. As if refusing to be tourists in our own city, we leave many wonderful places unexplored.

The Nautilus Hotel on Collins Ave is one you’ve probably heard about during Swim Week and other weekends alike, but probably wouldn’t think of visiting on any unassuming Sunday morning. Because, let’s face it, hanging out in hotel lobbies are activities all-night club goers indulge in. Right?

#ThankYouMiami for Themed Weeks - Live Arts Month

In Miami, a new month means a new theme. November is Live Arts Month and it couldn't have arrived at a better time. Until last month, it had been a few years since I had watched a live performance. Thievery Corporation's visit to the Fillmore Miami Beach in early October was the perfect reason to come out of my cultural hibernation. (Their 2010 concert with Massive Attack at Bayfront Park is hands down my favorite concert I have seen in Miami and I knew they would put on another fire show.) Since their show, I've been on a live arts kick: theater, live music, art shows, you name it.

Without knowing it was Live Arts Month, I have seen some really incredible performances that I am grateful Miami has brought to our sunny shores. These are the three I recommend most highly, with additional quality works to consider listed on our Miami Events page:

#ThankYouMiami How-To: Staying Fit With Your Pet

As winter approaches, it is our duty as Miami-ans to find new, innovative ways to stay fit. After all, its almost a requirement for residency to maintain a bikini body year-round. The good news is that the weather cooled down this week, finally making it pleasant to go for a run outdoors. This afternoon I did a 6-mile jog from my place to the South Pointe Pier. It was glorious.

During my run, I saw a ton of people jogging with their pets and I got majorly jealous. I've been contemplating bringing home a dog or a cat to keep me company since my move. Unfortunately, my frequent travels and hectic work schedule have been two major and valid deterrents. Nevertheless, in moments of weakness I still hopefully peruse local adoption listings and sites like PuppySpot that connect responsible breeders with people like me that are searching for a new pet.

#ThankYouMiami for New Food Finds - Stiltsville Fish Bar

Before I begin today's post, I want to say #thankyoumiami. Thank you for believing in this blog and thank you for following along on our Miami journey. Thank you also for nominating us a second year in a row as Best Local Blogger in the South Florida Blogger AwardsWriting new posts is fun because you make it fun by allowing us to entertain you with our silly stories and our news about our beautiful coastal community. You smart, you loyal, we appreciate you. (And we'll love you forever if you vote for us!) And now, for our regularly scheduled programming...

When it comes to landmarks, nothing is more Miami than Stiltsville. Its seven weathered, wooden houses are beacons of "a rascally mischievous past". In its heyday, Stiltsville was a utopia for the seafaring bon vivant, a place with its own rules. Today the remaining structures are off-limits to most of us, but they are a friendly and familiar face in the middle of Biscayne Bay.

Since I moved to Miami in 2006, I have passed Stiltsville numerous times—on the way out to snorkel at Fowey Rocks, to sail in open water, and to dive the Miami Wreck Trek. But, until this past August, I had never set foot there. My first visit was everything I dreamed it would be. There were boats, there were babes, there was booze, and there was a buffet of fresh seafood. The occasion? The long-awaited arrival of Stiltsville Fish Bar to Sunset Harbour.
