Miami Beach to Launch Trolley Express Route

In an effort to further improve city transportation, Miami Beach is looking to roll out a complimentary express trolley service connecting the northern end and South Beach areas. Passengers would have a quick way of reaching North Beach and Lincoln Road, with minimal stops in between.
This express trolley would further extend the Miami Beach trolley, a free service that has considerably gained in popularity since its debut over the past three years. If everything goes according to plan, the Middle Beach route would undergo an extension to connect it further into the North and South Beach area.
Miami Beach is currently awaiting approval from Miami-Dade County commissioners to begin rolling out the express trolley. Once the city receives the okay, the new route is expected to be up and running sometime next month or in October.
Have you used Miami Beach’s free trolley at all? Would you be more inclined to use it if and when the city rolls out this new express route? Feel free to share in the comments.

Spend a Summer Day on the THERAPY-IV

The summer season is slowly drawing to a close, but it’s not too late to take advantage of the warm weather and enjoy some summertime fishing. From mahi-mahi, sailfish, and barracuda to wahoo sharks, and more, we can’t wait to catch some big fish with you! We have two large, modern deep sea charter fishing boats waiting at Haulover Marina and we offer the flexibility of full day or half a day fishing adventures. Don’t worry, our boats have A/C so you can remain cool during the sometimes sweltering heat.
When you’re out experiencing fishing, you may not want to find yourself competing with lots of strangers for that big catch. We make it a point to keep the number of people low (six) so there’s plenty of space for everyone and plenty of opportunities to catch something big. With the flexibility of private or shared charters, you can choose which option suits you best. We welcome individuals, couples, families, and we’re also a great choice for groups. Have your next party on board and try something refreshingly different!
We’ve received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for seven years in a row and we would love to have you on board. Let’s go fishing in August!

Get Down with Some Great Music This Week

The heat may have a lot of people spending most of their time at the beach, but South Florida’s various musical events continue to draw crowds. Let’s check out some of the events going on.
The late Jerry Garcia was a singer-songwriter perhaps best known for his work with the influential band Grateful Dead. Tomorrow, The Wynwood Yard will celebrate Jerry Garcia Day featuring Unlimited Devotion beginning at 8 pm. Best of all, there is no fee to attend.
If you’re more of a jazz fan, check out Nicole & Senegal Jazz Duo over at Le Chat Noir on Miami Avenue, also at 8 pm. Just like Jerry Garcia Day, there is no cost to enjoy the music.
Singer and songwriter Khalid Robinson (known mononymous as Khalid) is currently touring in support of his debut studio album American Teen released in March. Khalid is perhaps best known for his Billboard top twenty single “Location”. Khalid: The American Teen Tour will make a stop at The Fillmore in Miami Beach on Wednesday at 8 pm. Tickets range from $25 to $40.
Fans of the late Whitney Houston may want to set aside some time on Friday to check out the “Dance with Somebody” Whitney Houston Tribute at the Shelborne South Beach. The event kicks off at 8 pm until 1 am and once again, there is no cost to attend.

Jezebel Opens in Miami Beach

For those of you seeking a new place to try this weekend in Miami Beach, you may wish to visit the 2,300 square-foot Jezebel Bar + Kitchen. The restaurant and cocktail lounge will open its doors tomorrow in the space that once served as the home of Bacaro, Halo, and Mova.
Unlike clubs/lounges that serve food for a limited amount of time, Jezebel guests can dine on foods such as mini lobster tacos, flaming s’mores, and Jezebel wings from 5 pm until the wee hours of the morning (5 am). Besides the food, Jezebel’s selection of drinks will offer plenty of variety. Try the Julio Reposado Tequila, the Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic, or maybe the El Chapo starring Illegal Mezcal.
The interior design of Jezebel is a collaborative work between François Frossard and Liquid Hospitality. Upon walking in, guests will notice an intriguing fusion of Wynwood meets speakeasy, with vintage furniture, street art provided by the talented Miguel Paredes, and more.
Jezebel’s hours of operation are from 5 pm to 5 am and it is open every day of the week. Its address is 1625 Michigan Avenue.

Choosing Your Charter Boat

Getting started with chartering a boat to explore the deep seas may seem like a daunting task for the inexperienced. Once you understand the different types of charters available, the decision becomes tremendously easier.
If you’re just getting your feet wet, a half-day charter might be a good way to start. These charters last about four hours which allows enough time to familiarize yourself with the basics as well as catch lots of fish. You can opt for a morning or afternoon trip or you can always choose a full day experience.
Shared charters are a great way to meet new people. Most charter fishing boats allow for a maximum of six people. Instead of charging you for the extra/empty seats, we can fill in the empty ones so others can enjoy the experience.
For those seeking something intimate, private charters are also an option. Spend the day at sea with your significant other and we’ll try our best to accommodate your needs.
Corporate days at sea are a unique, fantastic way of sharing experiences with your colleagues while strengthening employee relationships and improving team building. We can organize multiple boats for large corporate groups.
