Table For Five

Every once in a while — not often enough, actually — I get together with some of my fellow South Florida bloggers. Today we met up at Balan’s on Lincoln Road on Miami Beach: two of the good folks from Eye on Miami, Rick from South Florida Daily Blog, and the keeper of Discourse. It was a nice day, the food was good, and the conversation even better. We solved all of the problems that face Florida and the country and even had time to share our wisdom with some of our fellow brunchers.

As Rick notes in his post, this kind of meeting is really good. You might think that since we’re all progressives, we all agree on everything. Actually, we don’t, and we had a good time sharing our views. And for me, since I’m a solo blogger, it’s good to be hearing other points of view without the barrier of a monitor and pixels; it makes you think in real time and learn.

Next time, Rick, we’ll sit inside and keep cool. And I’ll try the French toast, too. It looked really good.
