Ever needed to wear a cup to work? This guy has. He’s a performer with the House of Horror Haunted Carnival and loves to scare the bejesus out of guests every year. So much in fact, that he bought a protective cup to wear after his terrified guests took out their fear on his, er, little demon. (The Miami Herald)
Get that mustard sauce ready. Stone crab season, one of South Florida’s most popular food occasions of the year, kicked off last weekend. Joe’s Stone Crab opened back up Friday night, but there’s still a big question about how Irma will affect this year’s batch. (Miami New Times)
