Would a MacArthur Causeway Trolley Ease Congestion?



The MacArthur Causeway can become highly congested, particularly during the afternoon rush hour or during certain times of the year such as spring break when hundreds of beachgoers flock to the barrier island. In an effort to try and tackle this congestion, Miami is currently working on plans for an express trolley route that would connect the downtown area to South Beach.
The express trolley would run between Bayside Marketplace and the Miami Beach Marina. Though plans for the proposed route have been mapped out, the question of financing the project still lingers. The project could, however, prove effective. The existing trolleys currently run by various cities in Miami-Dade County including Miami Beach have seen sharp increases.
While this proposed trolley would focus on the MacArthur Causeway, the Julia Tuttle Causeway isn’t being ignored, either. Miami Beach and its neighbor are working together on a plan involving a county express bus aimed at shuttling hospitality employees from Miami to their Miami Beach jobs.

Let’s Par-Tee! US Open in Full Swing

The glorious U.S. Open makes its way back to Shinnecock Hills for the fifth time in the national championship’s history and the first time since 2004. With over five venues scheduled this year, the Southampton, N.Y. course will become one of eight venues to ever do so. With so much on the line, including a $12 million purse, this year’s U.S. Open is bound to go down in history.
This year’s field is widely considered to be the strongest of any professional golf event there is, but this year will have even more spice to the lineup with the return of Tiger Woods, a three-time U.S. Open winner. Also, another threat in the field is 2017 U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who is eager than ever to defend his title after dealing with an injury. 
Interestingly, Phil Mickelson is driven to take home the title after reflecting on his derailed chances to win in the 2004 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills due to a rock that was behind his ball. Come this U.S. Open, players will not have to worry about such bad luck because the USGA is implementing a local rule that allows players to remove obstructions without penalty.
This year, enjoy the tee-rific coverage of the U.S. Open and it will surely putt a smile on your face!

Mahi Mahi Madness

It’s prime mahi-mahi fishing season in Miami, and fishermen are excited. May and June are the best times to catch these colorful, tasty fish. Fishing for mahi-mahi in the Florida Keys would be a great way to unwind this weekend.
Large mahi-mahi are easier to catch in the summer, and they weigh five to fifteen pounds. The big fish are a great bonus for fisherman, and an impressive catch. You might even catch a rare twenty-pound mahi-mahi.
The trick to mahi-mahi fishing is to follow frigate birds, which usually follow mahi-mahi schools. Sooty terns, another type of bird, also follow mahi-mahi. Find those birds, and you’re set.
Mahi-mahi also love to eat live pilchards as bait, which are also known as sardines. The mahi-mahi love the pilchards and can’t resist them. Cast a big cast net to get enough pilchards for your fishing trip. You can also use squid or bonito chunks as bait, if you can’t find live pilchards.
Don’t miss your chance to catch some colorful, tasty fish this summer. Remember, prime fishing season is May and June!

Discover the New Española Way


When is the last time you visited Española Way in Miami Beach? The classic roadway has earned something of a reputation as a lighter version of Lincoln Road which is typically visited by tourists than locals. The city is looking to change that by reinventing Española Way, and it’s already added the finishing touches on a $2 million restoration project.
Visitors to the new Española Way will find new trees, lighting, plus a curb-less design intended to make it friendlier to pedestrians. Additionally, it is not overrun with a number of chain stores like Lincoln Road and it also manages to maintain its Italian-Spanish ambiance.
To encourage locals to rediscover Española Way, they can sign up to receive a twenty percent discount at the various shop and restaurants provided they have proof of residence. There are also various themes and events happening throughout the week. Mondays, for example, will focus on providing restaurant customers with vegetarian options. On Tuesdays, an arts and crafts market will be open from 4 pm to 9 pm. Thursdays and Fridays bring an infusion of salsa and flamenco.
