South Beach, Miami Girls Reunion 2012
Fantastic reunion with the girls over Labor Day Weekend. Despite the airport hustling (Y and I had to run to our gate, due to the insane Labor Day airport lines), we made it to the Mondrian hotel. Rolled up squad deep in our town car, exhausted from lack of sleep and airport woes.
But lo and behold, the beautiful, blinding white decor hotel welcomed the two of us with a view of the pool and E! 4045 Locust (or most of it) was back together again, especially after Heather arrived from Oklahoma. In retrospect, it was rather impressive that people from literally opposite sides of the US could gather for a long weekend of booze and beach.
Befriending David, the poolboy/amazingly nice local, many days were spent lollygagging by the pool. sunset views were involved, with some scattered fatty, delicious, probably overpriced hamburguesas. We spent the first dinner in Miami at Española Way, a street claimed as a “hidden secret” from our trusty David.
Some Key events: dinner at española way, nightclubbing at Mansion (where we saw the cutest 2 Australian DJ group: Nervo), High rise dance bars, poolside, Liv Miami, the DELANO (beautiful, beautiful poolside bar), and Nikki Beach.
- can’t live in South Beach. People are insane.
- Humidity may be worse that Philadelphia’s, which is saying something.
- People seem friendlier, but mostly shallow.. - _ -
- weekend with the girls was pretty sweet - dance and booze fest!
