Celebrating July 4th in Palmetto Bay

I'll let the video tell the story, but there are few other place I can think of that can celebrate Independence Day like Palmetto Bay.

With events throughout the day, there is something for everyone. The picture above shows some of Palmetto Bay's Parks Department personnel sitting on a foll-sized hot air balloon that they just packed into the sack.  THANKS for a great 4th of July Palmetto Bay!


Forever Shorty’s Bar-B-Q

A nasty rumor made its way to me a few days ago and when I mentioned it to my brother-in-law, he nearly cried. I had heard Shorty’s Bar-B-Q was on the short-timer’s list and was going to close. So, to save taste buds all around South Florida, I went straight to corporate headquarters to investigate. It was there I got the real story.

CEO Mark Vasturo, assured me that Shorty’s is NOT closing. In fact, Shorty’s is doing just fine at its original location (9200 South Dixie Hwy). The confusion set in when the land Shorty’s owns and sits on was recently re-zoned. As rumors often do, it snowballed from there and morphed into fabrication.

So for those of you who have seen three generations of family eat at this South Florida institution, fear not. You can still get those smoky ribs and the rest of Shorty’s superb barbeque menu items. Just as the 1972 fire and Hurricane Andrew didn’t stop Shorty’s, neither will the re-zoning.
