Viva Miami!


Tonight Dave and I are off to Miami for a four-day weekend. The first three nights will be spent at The Standard, where I plan to take full advantage of its many spa amenities as well as its salt water pool. On Friday, I'll be dragging Dave to Miami's fabulous design district for a bit of serious art and decor sight seeing. We'll also be meeting up with Dave's brother and his wife (who live in Plantation) for some fine dining and drinking on Thursday and Friday nights. The weekend will be spent back at Casa Conn for some trick-or-treating with my niece and nephew. I'll be bringing my laptop with me and will try and post some while I'm there, but if posting and/or commenting is light until Monday, I promise to make it up with some great Miami-related posting next week.

So much fun! If you have time, go for drinks at the Delano hotel. I've been twice and it's got beautiful design and beautiful people. I wrote a post about it awhile ago here: http://journeychic.com/2008/07/30/drinky-drinky-at-the-delano/
Sadly the image links don't seem to be working anymore, but you'll get the idea. Have a great time!

Laura - My SIL (a native of S.Fla) actually INSISTED we get drinks at the Delano on Friday night before we eat at Nobu! Glad to hear it's "the" place to go!

Oh my what a fun get-away! I'm totally jealous here in rainy NY!

So happy you enjoyed my post today. I must confess and say I've watched all seasons of Rock of Love! It was my dirty little secret. I couldn't stop watching it!

Have loads of fun and remember to treat yourself to a little something, something!

Oh I LOVE Miami! Have a fabulous time!! And if you need to stay a few more days, Morgan Hotels (delano, etc) are having some great specials. I was thinking of trying to swing one for an upcoming work trip!

And yes, the Delano IMHO is THE place to go for cocktails. ;-)
