La Sandwicherie In Brickell Finds Way To Make Use Of Old New Times Weekly Issues
"I have lived in Miami many years and have always liked the artwork on the covers of the New Times," said Pilar. "So I thought it would be look good and be like a tribute to Miami."
Instead of repainting, Pilar hung the covers of 59 issues of the New Times along the wall behind plastic sheathing. Issues from 2010 and 2011 in no particular order line the walls along the tops of the tables. Customers of Sandwicherie, which opened its first location in an alley in South Beach back in 1988, seem to appreciate Pilar's idea.
"Whenever you pass a New Times stand, the cover grabs your eye," said diner Tony Inacio. "Its about time someone made use of it."
