South Beach and Miami Beach nightlife is changing before our eyes. A major South Beach nightclub, Miami Opium Garden with Prive, just closed its doors and is moving to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. Is this the beginning of a new trend or just an isolated event? The Miami Opium Garden along with its VIP Prive has been the leading Miami Beach nightlife nightclub in South Beach for decades.

The crisis afflicting South Florida was probably the major factor behind this move. Miami Opium Garden will reopen at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in mid-March. Even the world-renowned Winter Music Conference will hold events there for the first time.

The city of Miami Beach became anti-nightclubs and quoted thousands of violations made by Miami Beach clubs in the past 10 years. Miami Beach vacation rentals attract a large variety of vacationers including clubbers. This aggressive stand by the city might endanger the future of Miami Beach nightlife and reputation as a trendy, hip city. TV series such as CSI Miami have attracted a lot of tourists because of their depiction of the glamorous Miami Beach nightlife. What will become of Miami Beach if the Miami Beach nightlife disappears? Miami Opium Garden was hit with so many noise violations that it decided it could not operate anymore in such a hostile environment. The city noise ordinance was unbearable. The Opium Group sued the city but ultimately lost the fight. Opium Group continues being a part of Miami Beach nightlife and operating Mansion, SET and the Louis Bar Lounge in the Gansevoort hotel.

The Seminole Hard Rock Casino is one of the major entertainment centers in South Florida with a casino, restaurants, concert venues, stores, hotels and night clubs such as Passions, Pangaea and Gryphon. The Seminole Hard Rock Casino is very popular among locals and has a slightly older crowd than you will find within the Miami Beach nightlife.

Florida Keys2008 Father’s Day in Miami is Sunday June 15th! I will always remember my grandfather standing waiting for me at the corner of my elementary school. Every day my grandfather was there to take me home. It is today an unforgettable memory that make me appreciate even more the dedication and unconditional love a grandparent can give you. I am a lucky girl since the manly figures in my life has been positive and incredibly loving. My father has also influence my so much. Since my mother died when I was younger, my father and I have become pretty good friends. We are pretty close and I feel completely comfortable around him. I think I am a good girl and I owed that to him. He dedicated his life to me and most important of all I will always have those good memories with me.

Nowadays, we live in two different countries, yet we always find I way to see each other. This year is going to be very special since he will be visiting me on Father’s Day. As a consequence, I have been thinking what to do this 2008 Father’s Day in Miami, Florida, and I have come to the conclusion that the best thing is to keep it simple.

If I were at my hometown, Father’s Day will be surely a family celebration. All my uncles, my father, and grandfather together. Usually, we get together and enjoy a delicious barbecue and, of course, lots of beers. I love those family reunions because there are perfect opportunities to catch up with everybody. However, that is not the case. This 2008 Father’s Day in Miami will be only my dad, husband and me, so I want to do something fun, but yet simple and affordable.

Looking through the Internet, I found interesting tips that I have narrow to my father and I favorite activity, eating. We love to go out and discover new places. Furthermore, we love ethnic food. It does not have to be expensive, though. But it has to be good and fun.

There is an interesting event that caught my attention for this 2008 Father’s Day in Miami. At the Fairchild Tropical Garden in Coral Gables, there is going to be a brunch held at the Visitors Center Ballroom from 10:30 a.m. thru 3:30 p.m. It seems to be a lot of fun because involves food in a local attraction that features beautiful gardens and art pieces by world-known artists. Currently, there is a Botero’s exhibition. Botero is a well-known Latin American artist that seems to be obsessed by heavy people. If this sounds good to you too, call at 305.256.8399 to make your reservations.

Miami is a great place to celebrate 2008 Father’s Day! I was thinking that maybe after the Fairchild, It will be nice just to relax on the beach since it is summer. You can take your father to a nice stroll on Lincoln Road and relax on the beach of South Beach at the afternoon. If you are looking for something really affordable, because we all know about the recession, you can just plan a nice pick nick on the beach. For instance, prepare something yummy and put some drinks on cooler to spend the day in one of South Florida’s sunny beaches such as Hollywood Beach located a few minutes drive from Miami, or Matheson Hammock Park in Coral Gables, with a family-friendly ambiance really close to Miami’s Fairchild Tropical Garden.

In addition, taking your father to a nice restaurant is a great idea, too. If I have to choose I will go with Indian food because I know my father will love it. Besides, Indian cuisine is really friendly with vegetarians, as I am. Nevertheless, Italian cuisine is also a good choice. Who does not love Italian food? There are also great American style restaurants in Miami, and I am thinking men will love to be taken to a nice steakhouse in Miami to celebrate father’ day. For those looking for something truly unique, an Ethiopian restaurant can be ideal! just fun with flavors your dad might have no taste yet. Whichever restaurant you pick, remember to call in advance to see if it will be open and make your reservations since restaurants get pretty busy on Father’s Day.

Make this 2008 Father’s Day in Miami truly special! If you have not found a gift yet, I have a suggestion. A basket filled with six hand-selected microbrews from around the U.S. Besides, it also included award-winning gourmet snacks such as mixed nuts, pretzels, peanuts, and beef jerky. The basket has an estimated cost of $ 70. Nonetheless, if you want to save some money, you can do it yourself. Go to Home Depot and buy the basket. Then, go to your favorite supermarket and select the beers, you can go with imported beers if you preferred so. Add whatever you think your father will love!
