Mi Burrito Sabanero en Miami. (Photoshop disaster by Hector Chacón)

Mi Burrito Sabanero is hittin’ the airwaves full force.

If you grew up in the 305, you definitely know this little holiday jingle.

“People know it’s the holidays once Power 96 plays Mi Burrito,” says Power96 DJ Lucy Lopez.

But where does it come from? And how did it make its way to Miami?

Around this time last year, we got curious and investigated. ICYMI, here’s DL on Mi Burrito Sabanero.

WHAT’S NEW IN THE 305

Wake up! The coffee scene in Miami largely revolves around cafecitos at 3:05 and the like, but it’s starting to go deeper than that. Specialty coffee roasters like Per’la, Relentless Roasters and Great Circle Coffee have arrived — giving a jolt to Miami’s java lovers. (Miami Herald)

Over but not out. Prolific Democratic donor John Morgan, who WLRN calls “a bourbon-swilling, salty-tongued lawyer,” announced Friday that his plans to run for Florida’s governor seat as a Democrat are over. But he told POLITICO Florida it’s possible he would still run, “just not as a Dem.”

Like Lego, but more delicious. If you were inspired by this story of the chef who built a gingerbread Freedom Tower, maybe you should try making a replica of Vizcaya Village out of the sweet stuff. The museum is hosting a competition to close out their centennial celebration, and a few lucky people with the gingerbread chops will win membership packages. (Edible South Florida, Miami New Times)

Two sizes too small. Hialeah has not one but two alleged grinches this holiday season. One man appears to have stolen a package off a homeowner’s front steps; the other took an apartment complex’s inflatable holiday decorations. (NBC 6)

Hug your cats. A Tampa woman was grateful for a flower bouquet she received, until it poisoned and killed her cat. Now, she warns other pet owners of deadly toxins found in lilies, as well as common holiday plants like poinsettias and mistletoe. (Tampa Bay Times)
