Picnic on South Beach: Healthy and Easy Alternatives for Your Basket
We almost forgot about the French, who also love their bread and sandwiches, especially this spot that's been serving up SoBe since 1988 through a window counter in the middle of an alley. Fresh fruit juice, smoothies, and shakes play the sidekick to any sandwicherie sandwich and will keep you cool and fruity in the scorching sun for $5. As for their sandwiches go, anything that has enough cornichons and vinaigrette, which they all do, is good. We like the turkey and prosciutto with fresh mozzarella. Sub-style and with all the toppings please.
Now that you've filled up your picnic basket with junk, or not junk, don't forget about the most important thing for any day at the beach. Booze. No drinking is allowed on SoBe, except in red solo cups, but you've got a basket filled with stuff, perfect for hiding. Pick your poison and hide it under all that non-junk and let loose. Everybody does it. Just remember your protection.
