A Massive Miami-Themed Ship Arrives in 2019

Have you ever been on a cruise? If you aren’t in any hurry, you may want to set aside plans for late 2019. That’s when the massive MSC Seaside is scheduled to arrive at its future home in PortMiami. The Seaside is a huge ship capable of accommodating just over 5,100 passengers and it will be the second MSC ship to call Miami home, joining the MSC Divina which will eventually be replaced by the MSC Meraviglia.
The MSC Seaside will be an unquestionable standout when it arrives at PortMiami. Its exterior design deviates from the cruise shop conventions to create a ship that looks more like a pair of floating condominium towers. The ship also boasts a dual floor atrium comprised entirely of glass with a digital display. Additional features include its quartet of water slides, a bowling alley, and the sea’s longest zip line at a whopping 394 feet, outdoing Royal Caribbean’s 82-foot zip lines to become the new record holder.
Because the Seaside will call Miami home, there will also be several Miami flourishes including a Miami Beach Sundeck and another pool near the back of the ship dubbed the South Beach Pool.

The U with Another Win over Virginia

The University of Miami Hurricanes once again crushed the competition, defeating the Virginia Cavaliers in yet another dramatic game with a final score of 44-28. Virginia started the game off strong, leading against the Canes 14-0. Miami was able to start coming back in the second quarter and gain the lead. The Hurricanes took over in the fourth quarter to increase the lead that led to another win!
Miami remains undefeated, despite the fact they have had close games against unranked opponents, they are still winning. The turnover chain was back as defensive player Quin Blanding earned one by getting an interception during the game. Fans are excited and totally behind the team, and they are practically guaranteed to make it into the playoff tournament as long as they remain undefeated.
Miami’s incredible momentum shows no signs of stopping, particularly when taking into account the team’s recent success against Notre Dame. The team only has Clemson standing in its way.

Yachts Miami Beach Returns with a New Name

Along with the Miami International Boat Show, Yachts Miami Beach remains a popular annual event. Set to kick off in 2018, the show also includes the Yachts Miami Beach exhibition. Next year, however, Yachts Miami Beach will be returning with a couple of tweaks, and one of those tweaks will be the name of the event.
When Yachts Miami Beach returns in February, the show will be known as the Miami Yacht Show on Collins Avenue and it will also have an all-new logo. Kicking off on the 15th, the show runs simultaneously with the Miami International Boat Show. Next year’s show will comprise over a million square feet of space. Besides a showcase of stunning luxury yachts, the show will also have plenty of live music, food to try, and even floating cocktail lounges.
Also set to receive a makeover is the Miami Yacht Show website which will boast new features designed to make it easier for attendees to plan their visit and make an appointment with a particular exhibitor they may be interested in. This refreshed website will also be mobile-friendly.

Don’t Call It a Comeback: The U Triumphs over Notre Dame

After crushing Notre Dame in a lopsided 41-8 victory, the University of Miami football program is now ranked second in the country for the first time since 2003. The win itself over its longtime rival was a surprise, but it was how Miami achieved its win that turned into an even bigger surprise. Miami fans rallied and cheered, creating a genuine home field advantage for the team. The University of Miami has been riding on strong momentum this year. They have yet to lose a game despite a few close calls, showing strong performance in the face of adversity as fans rally behind the team in what is perhaps its highest level of success in more than a decade.
A winning culture for the University of Miami creates a lot of energy for the Miami area along with buzz for college football itself. Along with Miami’s winning, the most popular thing going on right now in college football is the “turnover chain”. The turnover chain is a golden chain with a U-shaped medal representing the university. The turnover chain is given whenever a defender creates a turnover, allowing the player to wear the chain on the sidelines. The chain has given the defense a performance incentive along with another way for fans to represent “The U”.
Miami simply needs to maintain its current success for the next couple games until they reach the conference championship against Clemson. If Miami manages to win out the rest of the season, they have a fantastic chance of reaching the final four top-ranked teams in the country, allowing them an opportunity to compete for a national championship. The THERAPY-IV is very excited about “The U” and fully supports Miami’s success.

Free Rock and Roll and Cuban Music This Week

It’s Tuesday, but the free events in Miami are happening throughout the week. As the holiday season starts to ramp up, here are a couple of suggestions that won’t affect whatever budget you may have put aside for your holiday celebrations.
For a decade now, The Knight Foundation has provided funds for Miami-based artists through its Knight Arts Challenge, spearheading over 300 culture and art projects throughout the city. To celebrate, the Lights, Camera, 305 event is being held at Gibson Park on Thursday. Three different screens will show over ten films which you can selectively tune into using headphones provided by Silent Revolution. The event begins at 7 pm and there is no fee to attend provided you RSVP.
Decades ago when rock and roll was emerging, a sway of the hips could land you in hot water for being too suggestive. Local band Patrick & the Swayzees will bring some of this classic swagger back to Miami when they perform at Blackbird Ordinary on Friday at 9 pm. Get there before 10 pm and you’ll also enjoy drinks at half price.
On Saturday, Latin Grammy-nominated Cuban singer and rapper Danay Suárez will perform a pair of sets at Hialeah Park at 8 pm. There will also be a Cuban Guys food truck in case you’re hungry.

Reasons to Choose a Charter Fishing Boat

Have you ever wondered why you should go with a deep sea charter fishing boat versus simply venturing off into the seas yourself? There are a couple of reasons why a charter is a wiser option, especially among first-timers.
With a charter, you have a captain who already has a boat well-equipped to handle all of the steps involved in preparing your line and catching some fish, virtually eliminating all of the guesswork involved in how to get started. On top of that, he or she knows about the local laws such as where you can and cannot fish. You’re free to focus entirely on the most important aspect of the fishing trip: catching the fish.
Speaking of catching fish, with a deep sea charter fishing boat you’ll more than likely avoid a common scenario where you end up catching nothing. A captain who has been fishing in the area for years knows the best bait, the best spots to catch fish, their finely-tuned knowledge can dramatically improve the odds you don’t leave disappointed or empty-handed.

Get Ready for an All-New Bass Museum

Do you keep up on Miami Beach’s art scene at all? If so, you may be aware of The Bass Museum of Art’s closing back in 2015. This weekend, the popular art museum is returning in a major way, boasting a tweaked name and a massive revamp just in time for December’s perennially popular Art Basel.
For starters, the museum’s name is now simply The Bass. As for the revamp, it fuses classic art with a significantly stronger focus on contemporary work. To give you a better idea, Botticelli’s masterpiece “The Coronation of the Virgin” from 1492 now shares expanded gallery space with artwork by modern artists like Pascale Marthine Tayou, whose exhibit “Beautiful” will debut when The Bass opens on Sunday.
The Bass revamp has added over 3,500 square feet of gallery space, a huge new lobby, and a cafe. The classic keystone columns remain while other features like the keystone ramp have been replaced with large hallways leading into a sun-kissed courtyard, classrooms, and more.
If you’re interested in visiting The Bass, admission will be free on Sunday, October 29 before increasing to $5-$10 thereafter. Its address is 2100 Collins Avenue.

Your First Deep Sea Fishing Adventure

Have you ever been deep sea fishing? If you haven’t, you’re in for a thrilling experience! While we highly recommend a deep sea charter fishing boat to help you get your feet wet if you decide to go solo there are a couple of things to know.
Have the proper gear. What type of fish are you looking to catch? With so many different species, not every fish will respond to the same bait. Depending on the size of the fish, you may also need more powerful gear.
Know how to find the fish. To hunt down the sea dwellers you’re probably going to want to invest in a sonar device. On the other hand, you could avoid all of the guesswork and go with one of the aforementioned charter fishing boats. Let the experts deal with finding the fish while you concentrate on catching them.
Practice patience. You’ve likely seen those videos where a fisherman is reeling in a major catch. What it may fail to depict is the time it took to land. Fishing is not for the impatient, and you need to be ready the moment the fish latches onto your bait. Consider it not only a useful skill for fishing, but for life.

Miami Beach Joins the Poke Craze

Are you a fan of the Hawaiian-born seafood bowl better known as poke? If so, you may want to check out the new Pink Rock Sea opening its doors on Miami Beach’s Española Way next month. In keeping with its name, the shop is tropically-themed, featuring strong use of bold colors like pink and green.
Pink Rock Sea is the product of siblings David and Jonathan Tang. This Miami Beach restaurant represents the first eatery by the brothers while the name of it refers to Hawaiian sea salt and the times the two spent partying it up at New York’s famous Roxy nightclub.
In case you’ve never heard of poke, the name of it is Hawaiian and it means “to cut or slice raw fish”. It’s a highly popular dish in cities such as New York and Los Angeles and also maintains a high degree of popularity in areas where there is a strong number of Hawaiian denizens. Miami Beach is one of the latest cities to join the poke craze.
Pink Rock Sea opens on October 10 and will be located at 214 Española Way.

Ice Bars, Pineapples, and Hurricane Benefits This Week

As Miami and Miami Beach continue to move forward beyond Hurricane Irma, there are plenty of events going on to keep South Floridians busy. The week may be coming to an end, but there is still lots to do.
Rosh Hashanah began last night, the Jewish New Year. In case you missed it, the popular Drinkhouse Fire & Ice right here in Miami Beach got into the swing of things last night. If you’ve never been there, the major highlight is the ice bar made out of 10,000 pounds of ice which includes ice sculptures and even drinks served in ice glassware. The bar is definitely a unique experience and worth a visit.
The Matador Room on Collins Avenue is serving a unique blend of pizza tonight at its Matador Bar as part of its monthly Pineapples & Pizza series. Try some avocado pizza made with ingredients like jalapeño while you sip on pineapple cocktails. Bring along a friend to enjoy the live music! The event begins at 9 pm.

What Type of Bait Should You Use?

To catch fish, you’re going to need to grab their attention with the use of some alluring bait. While every fishing aficionado has their preferred bait, live baits have been proven to be effective in catching a multitude of species. The examples below are by no means the only solution but if you’re trying to figure out where to get started, they may help.
Crayfish. When you’re looking to snag some of the larger predatory fish, crayfish are highly effective. Perhaps the biggest hurdle you’ll run into with this bait is finding it, and they do require a degree of trial and error to use.
Nightcrawlers. This type of bait is a great choice for catching virtually any type of fish, but they do require proper rigging. Unlike crayfish, they are generally easier to find.
Live bait fish. Should you decide to go with live bait fish, the minnow remains a popular choice. As with nightcrawlers, they are readily available and have also been proven effective in snagging various sea dwellers. Make sure your fishing hook isn’t too large when using this type of bait.

Getting Started with Deep Sea Fishing

Getting started with deep sea fishing may seem overwhelming, but knowing a few basics can make the experience a little easier for those planning on trying it out for the first time. Here are a few things to know.
Decide your method. You can either take your own boat out or choose a chartered boat, the latter option is the wisest for beginners. Should you decide on a charter, you’ll need to decide whether you prefer a private charter or a shared one with other people. Also, make sure that you do your research on the captain.
Don’t let seasickness ruin the experience. There is a much greater likelihood of becoming seasick on a small boating vessel, a deep sea fishing boat being a prime example. For the most part, seasickness is mental and the less you focus on symptoms, the lower the odds of it happening. However, definitely take the steps to make sure you don’t become seasick. That means refraining from consuming alcohol and keeping some Dramamine around, just in case.
Get ready for some fun. Deep sea fishing can be as relaxing as it is thrilling, and there is nothing quite like catching a massive sea dweller. Learning how to fish can be a highly useful survival skill and the best crew will take the time to help you become a future expert fisherman.

Meet the Man Behind the Boat

Today we’d like to take a closer look at the man behind Miami Beach’s popular THERAPY-IV experience: Captain Stan Saffan. Saffan was introduced to fishing at the age of seven. Along with his father and sibling, he nurtured his experience by working on fishing piers and drift fishing boats before moving over to drift fishing boats as a deckhand. Saffan continued to learn the ropes and eventually earned the title of first mate by the time he was a teenager.
Upon attending college, Saffan spent his afternoons and weekends working on local sportfishing boats. A few years later, he officially began work on what would become the first THERAPY charter fishing boat, debuting it in 1976. Since then, he has evolved his deep sea fishing boat fleet into the modern vessel we know today as the THERAPY-IV.
As a longtime South Florida resident, Captain Stan knows all about the seas and its inhabitants. Consistently receiving top ratings on TripAdvisor, the experience is definitely a memorable one. Meet Captain Stan and discover deep sea fishing!

Are You Ready for the Eclipse?


The excitement for today’s solar eclipse has reached a fever pitch in South Florida as people scramble to find solar eclipse friendly glasses that are increasingly hard to come by. With the unobstructed views of the ocean and the sky, Miami Beach is a great spot to view the eclipse, a fascinating phenomenon that has not happened in more than 35 years!
You’ve probably heard a lot about how dangerous it is to stare directly at the eclipse, hence the need for safety glasses. To ensure your eyes are being properly protected, make sure these glasses meet the international standard ISO 12312-2 for safe viewing. Failure to take proper safety measures when staring at the eclipse could lead to significant eye damage, including permanent vision loss due to the intense ultraviolet rays. With an eclipse, there is an even greater risk as this damage can happen in a short amount of time. Definitely, make sure that your glasses or whatever method you’ve devised is safe.
Always remember to use proper eye protection even when an eclipse is not happening. When you’re out on a deep sea fishing boat, the rays reflecting off of the water can also be blinding.

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.
