As glamorous as South Beach tries to be, there is still plenty of grunge to be found, especially in the kitchens and food prep stations of local restaurants.

We really wish we hadn't read it, opting instead for the "ignorance is bliss" motto. But we have one question: Why is no one cleaning their can openers?
