Time Out Market in Miami Beach Sets Its Opening Date

After much anticipation, Miami Beach’s Time Out Market has finally set a date for its grand opening. The food hall has added the last two spots in its roster and those looking to experience what may end up being the best food hall cuisine in the barrier island can set a date for May 9.
Indeed, Time Out Market will be opening bright and early at 8 am and will feature more than fifteen different restaurants, a trio of bars, and even a demo kitchen. Further adding to its allure is Miguel Massens, a man who has worked with restaurants that have received the prestigious Michelin star, such as California’s The French Laundry. Those looking to meet Massens will find him residing in Time Out Market’s demo kitchen.
Other names that are on board for Time Out Market include K’West by Norman Van Aken, which aims to bring an authentic taste of the Florida Keys to Miami Beach. Aken will also debut the second location for his pizza restaurant, appropriately named Beach Pie. Other notable names that will be contributing their culinary expertise to Time Out Market include pastry maestro Antonio Bachour, the Stubborn Seed’s Jeremy Ford, and Azucar’s Suzy Batlle, to name a few.
Time Out Market will be located at 1601 Drexel Avenue.

Blackfin Tuna Regulations May Be on the Way

The blackfin tuna is one of those fish that tends to be caught by accident. They can be found across all offshore waters of Florida, but the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has noticed some drop-off of catches in areas such as Miami and the Florida Keys. To tackle the situation, the FWC is hosting several workshops to receive angler feedback regarding the status of blackfin tuna. The results will then be evaluated by a governor-appointed commission most likely in July some time.
Until changes and regulations are implemented, blackfin tuna are currently regulated by Florida’s default recreational bag limit which allows a maximum of two fish per day, or 100 pounds, whichever is greater. There are currently no size limits in place. There are no federal regulations for blackfin tuna.
Of the “true tunas”, blackfin tuna are the smallest when compared to their massive cousins like the 900+ pound bluefin tuna. They share some similarities with skipjack tuna and the false albacore, which most Florida anglers may recognize as the bonito.

Miami Beach Seeks to Phase out Plastic

Plastic remains a major problem not only in South Florida, but also around the world. As efforts continue to try and tackle the environmental hazard, Miami Beach has launched its own initiative aimed at reducing the problem that often plagues the ocean.
Appropriately dubbed Plastic Free Miami Beach, the initiative seeks to cut down on the reliance to use plastic items that have a one-time use, such as straws for instance. One way to do that is to transition from plastic straws to paper straws. Other paper-based or non plastic products are also being proposed to cut down the usage of items like styrofoam carryout containers.
The initiative meeting was aimed largely at encouraging businesses to join the cause which seems it is being embraced with open arms. In fact, the popular spirits company Bacardi has already expressed its support.
Miami Beach already bans certain products, but this new initiative may go a long way in making the city a greener place while making Mother Nature happy.

Have You Been to the Faena Bazaar?

Lincoln Road may be the shopping destination of Miami Beach, but the city isn’t really known for its retail. That all changed in 2018 with the debut of the Faena Bazaar, one of the latest additions to the growing Faena District. Named after hotelier Alan Faena, the Faena District currently features a pair of hotels, residences, various cultural restaurants, and of course, plenty of highly regarded restaurants.
With the Faena Bazaar, visitors can shop at several internationally recognized boutiques such as luxury eyewear store Linda Farrow, the Spain-made shoes of Pedro Garcia, and Hartel, a collection of menswear. While it showcases lots of different shopping venues, Faena Bazaar also has a gallery with various exhibitions on the floors below the shops. If that’s not enough, the rooftop is home to the Goldish Oasis, a place to enjoy sound healing and sip organic juices. When you need to take a load off after some retail therapy, this is the place to go.
Faena Bazaar is located at 3400 Collins Avenue.

Ultra Returns with Some Ridesharing Restrictions

Ultra is moving from its longtime home of Bayfront Park to Virginia Key for the first time this weekend. More than 50,000 people are expected to show up to the three-day festival, and city officials are working hard to ensure that traffic on the Rickenbacker Causeway flows smoothly.
For those that may not know, the Rickenbacker Causeway is the one road that connects the Miami mainland to Virginia Key. To reduce the chances of traffic snarls, ridesharing services such as Lyft and Uber have made it known that passengers will not be picked up at Virginia Key during the Ultra Musical Festival. For anyone that intends to use ridesharing, they will need to ride one of the three shuttles transporting them to the following locations: Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, the former home of the Miami Herald near Omni, or the American Airlines Arena. It is only at these locations that people can be picked up via Uber or Lyft.
Although Uber and Lyft have made their pickup policy clear, passengers can still be dropped off at Virginia Key. While Uber won’t have any drop-off restrictions, Lyft will cease drop-offs beginning at 10:30 pm until 6 am. Residents of Key Biscayne residents can also request vehicles from either service.

Miami Beach’s Spring Break Changes Remain in Effect This Weekend

For those of you that visited Miami Beach this past weekend, you may have noticed some changes in regards to the roads and traffic patterns. As a means of tackling the massive numbers of college students that visit the barrier island for spring break, the city has some changes in place to keep things orderly.
As was the case last weekend, this weekend visitors will notice some closures. For starters, Ocean Drive between 5th and 12th Streets will be closed after a certain time. The MacArthur and Julia Tuttle Causeway will only have a pair of lanes moving, so you may be better off taking advantage of either the 79th Street Causeway or the Venetian Causeway.
For those that are planning on using scooters to get around, the city is now able to disable scooters to reduce the chances of any reckless scooter drivers. On an unrelated note: also remember that certain roads around the city will be accessible only to residents of Miami Beach or employees of businesses on the barrier island.
