It's official: Short Order is now a month in, folks! This is an occasion. We need balloons, party favors, and naked baby pictures! Gosh, you guys remember 4 weeks ago when we were baby bloggers? That was cute. Now we're like, in that semi-grownup awkward phase, where one arm is longer than the other and we've got back acne. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

So has this month been as good for you as it's been for us? Please feel to say so. We'd love your feedback, because (and we're being for real, here) we are very committed to becoming the premier South Florida food blog. So give us the shout and let us know what you like, what you don't like, what you want to see more of, and less of. And, in the immortal words of Kimbo Slice, that's what's up.

And now, the weekly recap:

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride, I'm wanted (waaannnttted) dead or alive...

Paula Niño of Miami food blog Mango and Lime shares with us her first food memory.

We gave you the run down on three of the premier food events in the tri-counties:

Miami Spice Preview, Part 2

We introduced our new weekly feature, Blog Watch, where we take a look at what's going down on local food blogs.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
