Our Miami Guide for President Obama, from Hialeah to Twist

Categories: Culture
Even if you don't support President Barack Obama, it's pretty obvious the man loves you -- along with the rest of Miami. The Prez touches down in the Magic City today, marking the second time this year alone and the soulful serenader's 14th stop in South Florida since his inauguration.

Hey, we get it. We are pretty fantastic. (And oh yeah, there's also the matter of our state's 29 electoral votes, and the fact that Republicans haven't won the presidency without Florida in nearly 90 years.)

Still, it's a shame to fly all the way to South Florida without seeing the sights. This is one of the country's biggest vacation markets, after all. And we know President Obama prides himself on being a man of the people. So we've put together a handy travel guide for the Commander in Chief, with plenty of places for both business and pleasure.

American Airlines Arena for Knicks vs. Heat
Is it even remotely possible that President Obama hasn't come down with a case of Linsanity? No, no it is not. And since the Knicks are in town tonight, it's only natural that the President would join the ranks of President Clinton and stop by the AAA for a game.

South Beach Wine & Food Festival
The pricey parties of SoBeWFF would be the perfect place to casually campaign for a few extra bucks. Plus, there's the opportunity to hang out with Morimoto. Everyone wins! Obama's already hosted a beer summit; why not a wine summit, or a Bacardi rum summit, or a summit over tasty food truck cuisine?

Here in Florida, the Hispanic vote isn't just important, it's critical. Mitt Romney knows that, which is why when he was here, he stopped in Hialeah, broke it down to guitarists playing "Guantanamera," and chowed down on roasted pork. Barack, we suggest you do the same, but with a twist. Like Mitt, head directly to Hialeah. Leave the suit at home, and put on your finest guayabera. And if you really want to show up your boy Romney, head to Latin Café on the corner of W 12th Avenue & W 49th Street and order yourself a café con leche.

I've seen some UM graduates working at the Dadeland Starbucks.


I bet you those two UM idiots didn't even attend the school.

We're sorry your English skills didn't land you the GPA you needed to get into UM.  But then again, if you did go to UM, you'd probably be writing for the Post or the Times by now....so I understand the hate.

Don't hate on UM just because your C+ average wouldn't get you into the School of Communications.
