Volleypalooza tournament - Miami Beach

Volleypalooza tournament


Every year, the magazine Ocean Drive organizes a volleyball tournament. What makes it so special? Only models play!!!

The tournament lasts one weekend, both Saturday and Sunday all day, on Ocean and 9th street, and attracts a very big crowd, not surprisingly. At night, they also have many events going on in the fashionable South Beach clubs.

So for all you guys out there, if you want to see all these models in bikinis and playing volleyball, see you next year in February!

PS: Yes girls, there are also guys models participating....

Segafredo on Lincoln Road - Miami Beach

Segafredo on Lincoln Road

Happy Hour

On Friday afternoons, people tend to get off work early (or not) and head to happy hour. It is the time to forget about your week and start your weekend. It is mostly an excuse to party and drink of course. Almost every bar has happy hour specials, meaning two drinks for the price of one for example.

Then there are also the trendy places that don't need to have these specials to pack up, such as Segafredo's (1040 Lincoln Rd on South Beach) an outside European looking terrace. Their drinks are expensive, but here it's all about to see and mostly be seen!

David's cafe - Miami Beach

David's cafe

"Cuban crack"

The coffee that most people drink here in Miami is a shot of Cuban coffee, which I call Cuban crack... as you might already now, Cubans are very numerous and powerful in Miami, and their coffee is made very strong with lots of sugar. Very sweet, delicious, but very dangerous as well: it is WICKED!
Order a colada from any Cuban cafeteria or restaurant (Versailles, David's Cafe, La Carreta, etc...) which will come with little plastic shot glasses. Don't drink more than two if you don't want to be literally wired for the next 12 hours though!
And for those of you who speak Spanish, I'll sum it up this way: El café cubano es al mundo del café lo que el tequila al mundo del licor. Ni se sorbe ni se saborea......¡se bebe!
