Tailgating can be a bitch. You've got to get to the stadium hours ahead of time, lug all kinds of equipment (grills, propane, charcoal, booze), and if you forget something at home (like the tickets!) you can't just turn around and get it. Once you're in Dolphins Stadium's pound-me-in-the-keester ... More >>
Photos by John LinnHoly arepas, Batman!The Colombian snack arepas are great street food fare. But they're also easy to make at home. All it takes is a griddle, some masa, and a little love. To prove how simple they are, I made a batch of non-traditional arepas stuffed with mashed black beans and ... More >>
The preseason excitement, the fantasy drafts, the fatty food; it could only mean one thing: Football seasoning is ramping up. All across South Florida, sports bars slinging wings and burgers, beers and shots will be prepping for their Sunday rituals. But finding a good sports bar isn't just as ea ... More >>
Flickr: yobosayoHow ballparks usually prepare arepas.Since migrating to South Florida 16 years ago, I cannot leave (the place formally known as) Joe Robbie Stadium without eating an arepa. Introduced to me on a class field trip to see the Florida Marlins one year, I tried an arepa -- a South Ame ... More >>
So they're thinking of calling Dolphin Stadium "LandShark Stadium" after the lager. We can apparently blame Jimmy Buffett for this, as we can so so many other things that have gone wrong with this world. I was a wee child when I first heard the term land shark. It was a Saturday Night Live ski ... More >>

The Monster Jam is music to our ears
(Photo via Smash Mouth's MySpace page.)If a band exists solely to keep the party going -- as California's Smash Mouth clearly does -- it makes perfect sense to catch that band in a tailgate-party setting before a huge football game. For this appearance, Smash Mouth takes a detour from its usual casi ... More >>
The Bearcats have something to prove at the Orange Bowl.
Ahhh... the sweet sounds of classic Seventies California pop. No one has ever embodied that sound more than the Doobie Brothers. And now that the style the Doobies perfected has become a musical archetype (see modern artists like the Autumn Defense, Beck, and so on), it's all too easy to look back t ... More >>
Logan FazioSouth Floridians tend to complain that they are often overlooked by music tours, but 2008 was definitely a busy and surprising year for the area's live music scene. Radiohead kicked off their world tour at Cruzan, while Madonna ended the U.S.-leg of Sticky & Sweet tour at Dolphin St ... More >>
This blog is not a remedy for the financial crisis. It will not defeat anti-American forces in Iraq. It will not slay any Somali pirates.Rather, it will give a loving squeeze to South Florida, extracting its most delicious, satisfying news-trients. The Juice is an ambrosia that, we hope, can provide ... More >>

So Sports Illustrated is going environmental on us, declaring on the cover that "As the Planet Changes, So Do the Games We Play." It's about global warming. On the cover is our own Dontrelle Willis. He's standing in Dolphin Stadium thigh deep in water. At first I thought he might have gotten drunk a ... More >>
I was going to give you some staid and measured commentary on Jeff Ostrowski's story in the Palm Beach Post on the dubious economics of Super Bowl hosting, but when I got to the bottom of the article I noticed ... The Palm Beach Post is pimping porn!! Yes, that's right, somehow a porn site has br ... More >>
