At the Best Little Male Strip Club in Miami

Where: 17450 Biscayne Blvd [map], North Miami Beach, FL, United States, 33160
April 2, 2013 at 3:16 PM | by | Comments (0)

During a recent stay at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, we mentioned to a local how we were looking to explore the local nightlife scene. He rattled off a few nearby bars, none of them too appealing, and then casually mentioned a male strip club about five miles away in North Miami Beach.

He even had a car, he said, and could give us a ride.

Four hours later, we were zipping down Biscayne Boulevard on our way to Swinging Richards.

28 Original Photos of Awesome Street Art in Miami's Wynwood District

January 3, 2013 at 2:50 PM | by | Comments (0)

Here at Jaunted, we're pretty partial to street art. In fact, the last couple years have seen us cut entire days from traveling just to scope out the rough creativity evident on the street of Santiago, Chile; Stavanger, Norway; Milan, Italy and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Exotic destinations all, but here's a little secret: the best street art we've ever seen is right here in the USA.

The recipient of this compliment is Miami's Wynwood district, home to galleries aplenty and, once a year, the Design Miami art fair during Art Basel. Considering the artistic appeal of the neighborhood, it's really no surprise to turn corners and be awed by a mural. What we are shocked to find is a community that's literally wall-to-wall stupendous street art, from graffiti to wheatpaste and beyond.

OMG. Deep Fried Oreos, Yo.

December 10, 2012 at 4:36 PM | by | Comments (0)

OH MAH GAWD you guys. So we like food trucks, that much is plain, but we love dessert food trucks even more. Something about decadence on the go seems like the answer to all of life's problems. After spending last week in Miami, we can pinpoint that even further to the awesomeness that are deep-fried Oreos.

The yummy is made by taking regular ol' Oreos, dunking them in batter and popping in a deep fryer. Dust with powdered sugar and serve. Occasionally the food truck (called 80s Sensation) is parked in Wynwood at NW 2nd Ave and NW 23rd Street and they specialize in such junk food indulgences. To be fair, we didn't know they were '80s-themed or what was going on; we just saw the sign "deep-fried Oreos" from across the parking lot and made a bee-line for it.

The Adventures of Travel Cat: Miami Beach, Florida

December 5, 2012 at 7:40 PM | by | Comments (0)

Kitty cats. They rule the internet and, whether we realize it or not, pretty much the world too. Ever noticed how cats sometimes stake out the coolest spots in a city? This new feature—Travel Cat—focuses on exactly that. Submit a photo to be featured by tweeting or Instagramming it to us (details below).

Travel Cat spotted in: Miami Beach's Art Deco District

This week's Travel Cat comes from yours truly! We're chillin' in Miami during Art Basel 2012 and, while walking down 14th Street towards Collins earlier this afternoon, we spotted both a black and white kitty cat also relaxing in the 79-degree weather. If you're familiar with the lolcat meme, just think of them as ceiling cat and basement cat.

Run Around Zoo Miami to Help a New Children's School in Haiti

Where: 12400 Southwest 152nd Street [map], Miami, FL, United States, 33177
October 16, 2012 at 2:09 PM | by | Comments (0)

There are lots of ways to spend a Saturday in Miami, not all of them good for you. On the wholesome end of the scale, there are things like a trip to the zoo or working up a sweat with a nice, long walk or run. Even better: here's a way to knock both of those tasks off your to-do list and earn major feel-good vibes to boot.

This Saturday, the Miami chapter of charitable organization Hand in Hand for Haiti holds its annual 5K Walk/Run at Zoo Miami. If you live in the area or are in town for a visit, it's the best way to start off your weekend. (No one gets out of bed before noon on South Beach anyway.)

It all begins at 8 am and, if you register in advance, you score admission to Zoo Miami immediately after the Walk/Run. The fee is $25, but if you wait until the day of the event it jumps to $30.

Serena Williams may have won the U.S. Open yesterday, but don't expect to hear her say she's going to Disney World anytime soon.

Serena seems to prefer to spend her downtime soaking up the sun closer to home, though still in Florida. Serena and her sister, Venus, both live in Palm Beach Garden, FL, about an hour and half north of one of their favorite vacation spots: Miami.

Rapid Transit Finally Goes All the Way to MIA

July 23, 2012 at 9:12 AM | by | Comments (0)

If you’ve ever flown into Miami you probably noticed that there’s kind of a lack of decent public transportation to and from the city’s core. Sure there’s those Deco Bikes, but that’s probably not a realistic option—not to mention they’re not even offered at the airport. There are some bus possibilities, but let’s be honest, that’s kind of lacking when compared to other cities around the country and the world.

However, it’s all about to change as of next week, because on July 28 a new public transportation link is finally arriving at the airport. The construction cones and jersey barriers are coming down, because Orange Line Metrorail service to the Miami International Airport Metrorail Station is almost complete. Basically this means that passengers can now be whisked right into downtown Miami without the need for rental cars, shuttle busses, or taxis. Best of all, it should only take you 15 to 20 minutes, and it’s only $2 per person per way. That’s definitely a deal when compared to other cities.
