South Beach. Miami. The Magic City. A place so beautiful, it’s a no brainer as to why it has served as the backdrop for countless movies, TV shows and music videos. In celebration of my 27th birthday, I spent four fun-filled days wandering the streets, indulging (more like over indulging) in the cuisine, and enjoying the nightlife that is Miami.
We departed from Philadelphia International Airport at 8:15 am. While some of you were still hitting the snooze button, I was somewhere flying in the friendly skies.
(This li’l cookie was bangin’ lol)
Sometime after 11am, we were cruisin’ the streets of South Beach!
Check-in was a breeze. We stayed at the Essex House, located on 10th and Collins, owned by the legendary Clevelander Hotel.
After getting settled in, it was time to get something to eat! Those two little biscotti cookies could only hold a girl over for so long! We originally decided to go to the Sugar Factory, however, when you’re walking down the strip, waitresses from various eateries can easily persuade you to go elsewhere. And guess who fell for the trap?
Lucky for us, the food was actually good! But do you see the size of that drink? I don’t know if you can tell by the picture, but it was huge! Any drink you of your choice in that big, ole glass, $35 a pop! There was no way I was going to drink that by myself.
In my 27 years, I don’t think I’ve ever tasted food so fresh!

That pretty much wraps up the first part of this recap but stay tuned for part two where I’ll be exploring the culture and cuisine of Little Havana!
