I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
So you're taking your talents to South Beach!

I have lived in Miami for about 5 years now. Here are some of my favorite places.
Burgers and Beers is a great spot. Exactly like it sounds - great burgers and great beers. 8 Ounce is also good. Both are on the Beach.
Prime 112 is the place to go if you want a steak. It's pricey, but there it's my favorite restaurant in Miami, period. No place is close. Try the steak (obviously) and mac n' cheese. Everything is great, though.
If you're into the artsy scene, Midtown/the Design District is a really cool place. If you want to venture off the Beach, Morgan's is an incredible brunch spot. Michael's Genuine Food is an awesome restuarant, as is Michy's. There are lots of really fun art galleries around there.
Lincoln Road is fine to walk around and people watch but don't eat or drink there. It's a tourist trap and way overrated.
I don't do the club scene, so I can't really help you with the night life.
Especially Prime 112. I'll only add a couple of good sushi spots, both of which are in South Beach. Even if you don't really like sushi, it's pretty f'ing good in Miami.
I'd try Bond Street Lounge or Nobu (which is the more expensive of the two).
Money is no object. I run a blog on Blogspot, man. I'm raking in the cash.
On a serious note, though...thanks for the tip. I guess I'll have to start remembering those Arby's coupons the next time I go to lunch...
Twitter - Recruiting Update: May 20
I lived in Miami within the last four years and I travel there every other month for business. Where to stay depends on who you are with (a chick, buddy or solo) but I will give you my opinion (40 yr old single guy).
I would stay at The W - its new, its one of the more lively hotels on South Beach and it fairly centrally located. The pool is solid with eye candy and a good mix of people. Rooms are great and is in the median price range relative to other hotels on South Beach. Located right on the beach and strip (Collins) and walking distance to Lincoln Road (outside mall area that is pretty solid).
Fountainbleau has decent rooms, several very good restaurants, a probably one of the best clubs (Live) on South Beach. Good pool as well.
The Betsy is great if you are bringing a chick. Hemingway style hotel. Very centrally located on the strip (Ocean Drive).
Restaurant wise -
Prime 112 is a must. The food is excellent and the chicks are sick.
Joe's (Stone Crab) is good but it doesn't have the same vibe and hotties.
Nobu: Is very very good and has a scene but in my opinion very overrated.
Bond Street is right next door. Its sushi is almost as good but the atmosphere is way better (a little grungy and intimate). Women love Bond Street and the ticket is a third of what Nobu will cost you.
Smith and Wyollensky: Outside bar and second floor has one of the best views of the ocean for South Beach. Chicks love grabbing cocktails there.
Fountainbleau has three very good restaurants (Hakkasan, Gotham, Scarpetta, etc)
Barten G, Eden Rock are good places to take a lady to for dinner.
Big Pink is the best brunch place. Regarding activities there is a lot to chose from. It comes down to why you are there what is you interest. Everything noted above is located in a relative concentrated cab ride area on South Beach. Miami itself has plenty to see and do outside of South Beach (Cocoa Nut Grove, Key Biscayne, Mary Brickell, etc)
Lincoln Road and Espanola Way are two areas that have plenty of restaurants and are walking distance from Ocean Drive.
The above places on concentrated on South Beach. Miami itself has plenty of places to go that our off the beach. Places like Cocoa Nut Grove, Mary Brickell, Key Biscayne, etc.
Best of Luck and enjoy. Go Blue!

When are you planning to be there? Depends what you like... I have cousins i visit in Fort Lauderdale, so most of my knowledge is of Fort Lauderdale... anyway, hope this helps:
Las Olas (Fort Lauderdale). Las Olas has shopping if you have a Mrs. Magnus. there are bars, restaurants etc.
If you're interested, Coral Castle is pretty neat, but in a Ripley's sort of way. I don't know if you're into that stuff. Viscaya... is the historical mansion that Ace Ventura was filmed in.
Elbo Room in Fort Lauderdale is a cool place, it's right on the beach too (well technically right across a small street from the beach.
Also, Transit Lounge is a cool spot.. they even have board games if you want to drink and play random games.
Finnegan's River.. clubbish, broads in bikinis..
Tobacco road.. supposedly Miami's oldest bar, solid food the place is open til 5am every night. There's also a Hard Rock Casino area in Hollywood FL... bunch of bars in an enclosed area... reminds me of disneyworld for adults, but you'd need a car to get there.
Sorry this is a bunch of random thoughts disorganized, but it's all I got... not a native Floridian.
I'd rather not say when I plan to be there, but thanks for the suggestions and the websites. I'll definitely check them out.
Yeah, Ask Dallas what he thinks of Blake...!
ALso tell Al Golden to forget about Kellen Jones,...IT'S NOT HAPPENING...!
When I went to Miami about 2 years ago, I took a great bus tour that lasted about 4 hours and gives you a good feel for the Miami-Dade area with a couple fun stops along the way. And it's in a big comfortable RV too. And they can pick you up right from your hotel if your staying in Miami Beach.
Pretty cheap too, especially for Miami.
Other than that:
-Lincoln Road shopping is a must
-Visit Flamingo and South Pointe Parks
-Check out the Botanical Garden and Holocaust Memorial
-Visit Espanola Way at night
-And enjoy North America's ONLY public topless beach (Lummus Park Beach)
As for hotels, I stayed in the Colony. The room was a little smaller but the only time I was in the room was to sleep; I was out doing stuff all day. They had great rates and was right in the middle of everything and was within walking distance of everything I've mentioned.
Have fun man, let us know how it goes!!
The food at her restaurants is as good as any where however the atmosphere is pretty soft. Her first restaurant is not in a fun area as well. I am a foodie so I use to hit her first restaurant often and I am a fan but I typically didn't bring chicks there due to the atmosphere.
Bond Street, Prime 112, S&W, Eden Rock where my three go to "closing" spots. LOL
8th street, Little Havana is fantastic. I always liked hanging out with the old cuban guys playing dominos. Then stop by one of the local cuban restaurants for some amazing cuban food.

you'll find a number of great restaurants in the Lincoln Road area. If you are willing to travel a bit - Michael's Genuine in the Design District is the best restaurant I've been to in the past year (and I'm a food guy). Find time to take in Coconut Grove one evening - stop by the Green St. Cafe.
It your into getting Tatt's check it out, They are expensive, but think about the detail of the block M they could tatt on you. Or even a Wolverine.

Where you going to school?
By far the best bar on the beach. On Washington Ave. Great atmosphere.
Full of hotties.
I remember on season 2 of Jersey Shore they spent a lot of time at a club called Bed.
Can't remember the other clubs they went to though.
