Holy Traffic: Rough Road Ahead

Holy Traffic, the original play by Paul Maltby, follows the exploits of the Dallariva brothers, Tony, who has just recommitted himself to his Catholic faith (and is about to have that faith tested), and his scheming brother, Joey, who has hatched an unholy plan to steal the Popemobile during the pontiff’s visit to Atlantic City and who needs Tony’s help to pull it off.

Balans

 

My boyfriend treated me to a weekend getaway in Miami Beach this past weekend (20-23 Jan 2017) for my birthday, so we naturally had to do brunch at Balans. The day was perfect, sunny and a bit breezy- perfect for outdoor dining. We chose a table for two near the entrance. From the moment we sat down to the moment we departed, the service was phenomenal.

Andy ordered the jumbo breakfast, which came with two eggs, bacon, potatoes, pancakes, and fruit. Wow! I enjoyed huevos rancheros prepared with Crispy tortillas, avocado puree, black bean tapenade, potatoes, spicy chorizo, salsa fresca, cilantro, sour cream, jalapeños, a spicy salsa roja topped with two sunny up eggs. To die for. If you like your breakfast to awaken your tastebuds, this is the way to go. I chose to pair my breakfast with a latte, but Balans has a number of specialty cocktails to make brunch pass pleasantly. There are only two places in the world you can experience Balans, one is London, the other is Miami Beach. Treat yourself. You’ll be happy you did.
