Lost Boy is a rustic lounge converted from a clothing and vinyl store, hence the term “dry goods.” With exposed brick and deer skull ornaments, its retro progressive era style is atypical of downtown Miami. Lost Boy features free to play darts, pool, and board games. This neighborhood bar is straightforward and no-nonsense. Get comfy Monday through Friday from 4-8 p.m. and enjoy Lost Boy’s happy hour: half off menu and wells. According to The New Tropic: “The store opened a few years back specializing in high-end denim and apparel for men and women but converted into a bar just in time for the spread of World Cup fever here in Miami. Stop by for a drink and check out the stylish decor and chill vibe while catching sports action on the multiple TVs around the bar.” According to Time Out: “In Randy Alonso’s eyes, Lost Boy (the bar) should be a mash-up of an English pub, western saloon, and classic salty American sailor bar. Lost Boy has only been open for two months but—we’ve got to say—he and his partner Chris Hudnall kind of nailed it. It might look a tad confusing on paper but after a drink in Lost Boy, a roomy joint filled […]

Is the meat in your burger from a Lab?
You may remember back in 2001 when the book Fast Food Nation was released and America was suddenly awoken by the horrific truth that their beef contained bacteria from fecal contamination that occurred during sloppy kill floor practices. Since then, food production has modified these procedures, cleaning up the process considerably. But now we have different problems with the beef industry that affects our outside environment instead of our insides. Global climate change is imminent due to the snowballing effect of greenhouse gas emissions. In other words, as CO2 is released into the atmosphere, the Earth becomes hotter, melting the polar ice caps, releasing more CO2, further raising the overall temperature of the earth. It’s been reported that even if we were to stop all CO2 production right now, this runaway effect would continue to steadily heat the world for another 20 years. The problem is, we’re so dependent on all these processes that release CO2 it seems overwhelming. Agribusiness has a huge impact on the environment from deforestation to water pollution. You may not have guessed that it’s also a major contributor to CO2 emissions. A 2006 report released by the Food and Agriculture Organization stated that “Globally [the […]

Grenada Named Top-Rated Southern Caribbean Cruise Destination
The three-island destination of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique were named a Top-Rated Southern Caribbean Cruise Destination in Cruise Critic’s third annual Cruisers’ Choice Destination Awards. The award is based entirely on consumer ratings submitted with reviews on CruiseCritic.com and as a destination awarded in this category, Grenada received high ratings among cruisers who visited the island in the past year. “On behalf of Pure Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, we are truly humbled by this award and thrilled to be named a top destination for cruisers,” said Patricia Maher, CEO of Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA). “To be recognized by our visitors is a remarkable honour and one that we do not take for granted. So far in 2018, growth in our cruise sector is trending upward and we will continue to work on elevating the product and experiences, to exceed expectations and keep Grenada top-of-mind with visitors to our shores.” “Our data regularly shows that whether you’re a first-time cruiser or you’ve sailed dozens of times, the destination is a top consideration when shopping for a cruise,” explains Colleen McDaniel, Senior Executive Editor of Cruise Critic. “While tropical destinations will always be popular among cruisers, what’s really exciting to […]
Karma Revero 2018: Back to the Future of Electric Automobiles
The car Karma Automotive now builds is the Revero. Besides the stunning design, ultra-luxe boutique price tag, and ownership experience, what makes the Revero different? For one thing, it’s one of only two series-hybrid vehicles available that are effectively electric vehicles that also have range-extending internal combustion engines. It is “filled” with both gasoline (only 9.5 gallons) and electricity, but it uses its gasoline solely to generate electricity, supplying juice to a battery pack and/or to power electric motors that in turn move the vehicle—just like a diesel locomotive. Under the Revero’s impossibly long, low hood lies a GM-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (a repurposed Pontiac Solstice GXP unit) that produces a maximum 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The batteries’ capacity is 21.4 kilowatt-hours, of which 18.9 kW-hrs are usable. (For the sake of comparison, the Chevrolet Volt’s battery capacity is 18.4 kW-hrs). At the rear of the car are two AC permanent magnet synchronous traction motors that provide a combined 403 horsepower and a whopping 981 lb-ft of torque for propulsion. There are three drive modes to choose from: Stealth (pure EV), Sustain (gasoline generator or “EV later” mode), and Sport (EV plus generator, or “gimme all […]
How Were 669 Children Saved from the Holocaust Thanks to One English Man?
Nicholas Winton was a young stockbroker in London. Jews were under threat in Nazi-Occupied Europe and violence against Jewish buildings and business was increasing. He headed to Prague and hatched a plan that saved the lives of hundreds of children in the months before the outbreak of World War II. Nicholas was a socialist with an interest in international affairs and links with many Labour politicians; being born in 1909 and raised in an English family he was provided with a particular insight into what was happening in Europe and what the Nazi regime might be capable of. In December 1938 he travelled to Prague with his friend on behalf of the British Committee for Refugees from Czechoslovakia, and there Winton saw for himself the full scale of the problem facing Jews in German-Occupied Sudetenland. He was struck by the appalling conditions and his greatest concern was for the children. As a British citizen with contacts, Winton was convinced he could arrange the evacuation of young refugees to England. He and his colleagues Martin Blake and Doreen Warriner set up a makeshift headquarters in a hotel in Prague and began taking the names of families who wished to send their children to safety. The […]

Mama Tried Bar: The New Experience of Downtown Miami
A cosy and affordable throwback in the centre of Downtown Miami, Mama Tried is a quiet spot for happy hour and a rowdy spot for a late night. The brainchild of the co-founder behind Purdy Lounge, Sweet Liberty and Blackbird Ordinary, Dan Binkiewicz and Mauricio Lacayo of The Bend Liquor Lounge. It aims to be a low-key, funky spot in the otherwise 9-to-5 neighbourhood. According to YELP: “Great decor, like nothing I’ve ever seen before and friendly bartenders.” “A bigger and full operated bar, cool lighting, live DJ, and spacious spot to hang out. And the name is so catching and just feels like the ‘Locals Bar’.” According to UrbanDaddy: “Partly because of the drinks, partly because of the vibe. Walking in, you’ll feel the ’50s Vegas dive influence. The gold disco lamps. The bright red carpet. The black, gold, dark green and burgundy colours. The “no regrets” mural. All this, you’ll think, embodies a swanky dive bar.” For hours and reviews click Mama Tried Stay tuned at Miami City Social for more information.

In an exclusive Miami event to mark the publication of a revised and expanded edition of Annie Leibovitz at Work (Phaidon), she will present and discuss a selection of her pictures. Originally published in 2008, Annie Leibovitz at Work was written with young photographers in mind, but it provides an illuminating view of Leibovitz’s photographic practice for a broad audience. There are stories behind some of her best-known images—Richard Nixon’s resignation, the Rolling Stones on tour, Queen Elizabeth II—as well as discussions of lighting, cameras, studios, photojournalism, working with writers, and the ten things she is always asked.

She has received many honors, including the International Center of Photography’s Lifetime Achievement Award, the Centenary Medal of the Royal Photographic Society, the Wexner Prize, and the Prince of Asturias Award for Communication and Humanities.
