Daily Candy- Miami - Choose Your Own Adventure‏

Restaurant Opens

This weekend is filled with tough choices. Rum or gin? Miami City Ballet or New World Symphony?

But the question of where to eat is simple: Prelude by Barton G. (inside the Arsht Center) opens tonight, letting diners pick any three dishes from its $39 prix fixe menu.

Choose seasonal fare from appetizers (tomato and watermelon salad, bacon and corn chowder), entrees (short ribs, wild salmon with asparagus), or infamous Barton G. desserts (a sundae with house-made cinnamon ice cream and roasted caramel apple slices).

Also on offer: a two-course lunch ($23), an enormous by-the-glass wine list (pours come in three sizes), and an a la carte bar menu. The high-ceilinged space woos with two chandeliers resembling incandescent jellyfish and slatted wood banquettes, where you can dine during one of five seatings between 5 and 10:30 p.m.

Your choice.

Halloween at the Sunset Tavern‏

Bushmen Rock Halloween

Make sure you have the Sunset Tavern as part of your Halloween plans, The Bushmen will be rocking on the outdoor stage from 9-12 p.m. As you know, this is the one time of year when girls get to dress like strippers and not have to make excuses, so if you have your Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Nurse, or whatever outfit, bring it.
Oh yes, and guys get to dress like dorks or like women - never understood the logic of it, but that's why I'm a rocker not a psych major. We'll be wearing our AC/DC, Winger, and Bon Jovi costumes.

Sunset Tavern
7230 SW 59th Ave. South Miami

The Brickell Irish Pub Loves THE BUSHMEN

Those of you who have seen our act recently know about The Bushmen difference - we rock hard, we sound great, and we leave all on stage. Last night we had the pleasure of once again energizing the crowd at the BIP, and we even got the City of Miami Chief of Police to shake his shoes. It appears Mr. John Timoney loves Tom Petty, so he couldn't help but shake it once we broke into American Girl. Mayor Manny Diaz seemed to be more into the newer stuff, but kept his composure - perhaps it was the pink tie.

Trends in the Emerging Workforce - Understanding and Navigating the New World of Work
For more than a decade, Spherion® has been working with international polling firm, Harris Interactive, to track the social and economic changes shaping the American workforce. In Spherion’s latest Emerging Workforce® Study, they saw a continuing shift in traditional worker mindsets toward more emergent views. The study focuses on understanding the direction and thought process of employers and employees as it relates to expectations, current issues and changes in attitudes and beliefs in the workplace. The results of the study provide insights on factors driving employee satisfaction at each phase of the career lifecycle.

NBC Universal and Telemundo Open Casting Calls for Bilingual and Spanish Speaking Actors
15.10.2009 07:16:14 NBC Universal and Telemundo studios - NBC’s Spanish-language network, are looking to expand their talent pool for bilingual and Spanish speaking actors at this time for consideration to perform in future television productions.

( - This is an exiting opportunity for bilingual and Spanish speaking actors, both males and females, all ages and types. At the open call will be Kendra Carter, who joined NBC Universal in May 2008 as Director of Talent Diversity Initiatives. In that role, Carter develops, produces, and supervises initiatives to promote and sustain on-camera diversity for NBC. She has previously served as a member of Nickelodeon Network's West Coast Diversity Team. She will be assisted by Tracette Hillman, who will continue working on diversity projects alongside Kendra for NBC Universal, according to Marc Hirschfeld, Executive Vice-President, Casting for NBC Universal Television Entertainment.

Also attending will be Alfredo Richard, SVP Communication & Talent Development for Telemundo. Mr. Richard oversees the network's talent development and cross promotions initiatives, as well as being responsible for directing all corporate, internal and crisis communications, as well as community affairs and programming publicity efforts for Telemundo Communications Group. He reports directly to Telemundo's President, Don Browne. Since Richard joined Telemundo, the multi-platform Group has enjoyed growing visibility among advertisers, Hispanic opinion leaders and viewers, as well as talent and the industry in general.

NBC's roster of scripted series includes critically acclaimed comedies like Emmy winners The Office, starring Steve Carell, and 30 Rock, starring Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey; award-winning dramas including the Law & Order brand, Heroes, and Chuck; daytime drama Days of Our Lives; and the Saturday-morning Qubo block of programming for kids, including the award-winning 3-D animated series Veggie Tales.

Telemundo is a U.S. Spanish-language broadcast television network committed to broadcasting unique and outstanding national and local entertainment, news, and sports programming; Telemundo reaches 93% of U.S. Hispanic viewers through 16 owned-and-operated stations, 45 broadcast affiliates, and distribution to nearly 800 cable systems in more than 210 markets.

So as you can see, this is an amazing opportunity that should be taken advantage of by actors regardless of, age, sex, and type - as long as you are a bilingual and Spanish speaking actor.

Best Happy Hour in Miami
Feeling Clammy?

8th Annual Hollywood Beach Clambake

By now you've probably noticed, we're surrounded by an, um, ocean full of water. Yet finding worthy wet places isn't always easy sailing, is it captain? Forget that sinking feeling, 'cause this Weekly Yelp dives in and comes up big on just where to make a splash in Miami!

It's hard to beat the views of the Great Big Blue from an island or two, so jump the Rickenbacker to Virgina Key and Key Biscayne. Don't forget to save that receipt, because it'll save you a buck at WetLab – and with their regular $2.25 and $3 prices on beers and drinkies, a Washington goes a long way. Head to the end of the Key to find beautiful Bill Baggs and the lighthouse, but for that ultimate drinking pleasure, park it at Boater's Grill in No Name Harbour. Remember Armando L's advice and keep an eye out for dolphins... and no, not Ricky Williams!

Think parks are all about green grass and fresh air? Blue Marlin inside Oleta River State Park is an old Florida throwback; Brandon R recommends "you sit outside on the side of the river with the wind blowing, but under a roof so you aren't baking in the sun." Eschel H enjoys the low-key vibe of Black Point Ocean Grill. "Nothing could be more casual, but the atmosphere is very cool, and the view of the marina is great." And if you've got a boat and plan on heading down to the Keys, he suggests "stopping by on your way to and/or on your way back!" Now, who's got a boat?

Miami Beach may be known for its Atlantic coastline, but it also has bay views to boast. For Janelle F "the best part about eating at the Miami Yacht Club is their outside seating. You are literally ten steps away from the water... it is super relaxing and really feels like you're 'getting away' for lunch." The Standard on the Venetian provides Marcos R with "the perfect spot to be during sunset." Sure the drinks are "a little spendy, but you gotta spoil yourself once in awhile," right? Speaking of the cost of luxe living, the Sunset Lounge inside the Mondrian sets a high bar, but Kelly O's here to tell us the lavish locale does not disappoint. Complete with a whimsical feel and sweeping views of the city, sky, and seas, as well as $16 cocktails, some views just might be worth the cost!

"One of my favorite spots by the water... if you can find and get to it. Having guests arrive by boat (or sometimes Yacht would be more appropriate) adds to the charm and seems to be the simpler way to get here.

Miami - Speakeasy Does It‏

Speakeasy Does It
Bardot Speakeasy Opens

You’ve been standing around all year wearing your flapper headband and sipping a classic cocktail — with no proper place to go.

But tomorrow Miami finally jumps on the speakeasy bandwagon with the opening of Bardot.

The lounge, designed for sophisticates and their artsy brethren, comes to you from Amir Ben-Zion, the gent behind faves like Bond St. and Sra. Martinez.

The hush-hush hipster spot has no address — instead dwelling behind an unmarked red awning in Wynwood (where else?). Before 9 p.m., Bardot serves nibbles both salty and sweet. But the main event is the entertainment: music, performance art, and burlesque along with screenings of cultural events like political debates.

Expect nostalgic decor like vintage sofas with faux fur throws, a Baldwin piano, and a library with an antique chessboard, backgammon, and an old-fashioned pool table.

Right on cue.

Bardot, 34th Street and North Miami Avenue, entrance in back alley, Wynwood (305-576-5570 or Map It
