Post to the Host:
My wife and I enjoyed the re broadcast of the Miami show. The music was especially good. You mentioned dining outside at a nearby restaurant, just up the hill from the show. It sounded wonderful. Can you remember the name of the place?
I don't, Sandy, but the specific restaurant and its menu wasn't the highlight what was exciting was the whole gaudy scene along the marina, the Latin dance music in the distance, the crowd thronging along the dock past the open-air tables, the Spanish in the air, the youth, little kids up late at night, the hubbub of Hispanic America and "la pura vida" especially for midwesterners on a warm winter night. Maybe you had to have recently come from snowdrifts to be enchanted by it.
