Olde City Sideshow
Living in South Florida, you may feel like you're part of one big circus. Whether it's escaped wild animals and endless palmetto bugs or that crazy lady tossing her baby at a police officer, this region is awash in a weirdness that never seems to settle.

Here's a gold-plated, truffle-scented taste of what Oprah has declared worthy of America's Christmas lists. (Pro tip: Pop your Xanax now.)
