Lambert's Cafe!!

We celebrated Elaine's birthday at Lambert's, Mary took us all out to lunch...
the home of the big rolls that get thrown to the customers...people coming along
with food in big pots and just keep asking if you want macaroni and tomato salad or
fried potatoes (in my opinion it was the best side dish) fried okra and black eyed peas...
A lot of food and I would give it 3 stars....but 5 stars for fun and atmosphere.

A Venezuelan/Cuban Party!

Virginia and Gus invited all of us to their house for a wonderful Latino Party.
We all had a most wonderful time and spent the day drinking, eating and talking.
Virginia owns her own food establishment called Mojito Grill in South Miami. Virginia is Cuban married to my cousin Gus who is Venezuelan. A very memorable day.

Awesome idea for a building.....

This metal column in front has names carved in metal and then with a light inside it illuminates on the building at night.
It was very nice....this is an cultural building.
