Cravings. Sometimes you just need a bowl of ramen. We know that’s not easy to find in this part of the world, but we managed to dig up a couple spots to get your fix. Whether you like it traditional or with lobster (or with tater tots on the side), we’ve got you covered. Here’s our list. Did we miss a spot? Let us know what makes it guide-worthy.
Snaps for Doral. Tomorrow’s the grand opening of Doral Legacy Park, and to celebrate they’re hosting a huge family friendly bash. Get your fill of BBQ and games, and check out the 18+ acres of fresh new facilities. (All the parks, all the courts, AND a splash pad).
All aboard. Miami Beach has proposed a free express trolley route that will connect North Beach to South Beach. YASSS. They’re just waiting for county approval to get it rolling. (Miami Herald)
Case closed. City of Miami Commissioner Francis Suarez officially filed to run for city mayor yesterday, and it looks like he’s got it in the bag – with three months left before the election, no one with a shot at beating him has entered the race. (Miami Herald)
Paging Bryan Norcross. Hurricane forecasters think we’ll have more named storms this season than they originally predicted, and they’ll be more powerful, too. Yikes. (Miami Herald)
Hoppy news. The Funky Buddha Brewery just got sold to a Fortune 500 beer giant, Constellation Brands. Don’t worry tho – Hop Gun IPA is going national, but the Oakland Park taproom will keep serving cold ones. (SouthFlorida.com)
It’s official. As expected, the Miami-Dade County School Board voted to join a lawsuit to overturn parts of a controversial school education bill that boosts charter schools and changes recess requirements, among other things. Their goal is to try and get back local tax dollars for traditional public schools that have now been allotted to charter schools. (Miami Herald)
Get that green. If you loved the Biscayne Green pop-up park, get excited – the project just got more than $420,000 in federal grant money to speed up taking out traffic lanes and putting in more community space. (Miami Today)
Something for everyone. Miami Spice is a beautiful time of year, but sometimes the offerings can be heavy on eggs, meat and dairy. Here’s a guide to the best of Miami Spice for you vegans and vegetarians out there. (Miami New Times)
