    Default June 4th Grand Opening of the Local @ The Flamingo-Free Food and Open Bar 6-8

    This is an edited version of a Thrillist email I got today..it sounds great, especially for those thinking about living there.

    Thrillist Miami
    Thursday June 3, 2010

    The Local
    An eatery inside the Flamingo's party-friendly "campus"
    Grand opening party tomorrow, then from 11am to midnight
    thereafter: 1500 Bay Rd (Flamingo South Tower); Miami Beach;
    305.397.8307

    Housed in what used to be the leasing office of the Flamingo
    in the south end of South Tower, full-bar-equipped Local
    rocks a slick mod/industrial vibe, a pool table, flat
    screens, and outdoor seating that looks upon Biscayne Bay
    and the property's pool.

    The Med/Latin-inspired menu's
    lighter fare includes meatballs stuffed with mozz and
    covered with marinara on ciabatta; seared tuna with greens,
    tropical mango pico de gallo, and lime vinaigrette; and a
    salad with a 1/2 wedge of Boston bibb served with tomatoes,
    cucumber, and fresh blue cheese topped with warm bacon
    vinaigrette called the Wedge Napoleon -- a sound plan, as
    dude's small enough to fit just about anywhere. More
    meal-ish stuff include paninis (beef carpaccio with
    stracchino & arugula; tempura-battered shrimp & homemade
    tartar; turkey, brie, and apple butter jam), plus pizza-like
    flatbreads including sesame-seared tuna with wasabi goat
    cheese; the Black N Blue with beef carpaccio, blue cheese,
    provolone, and truffle oil; and one with pepperoni, sausage,
    'shrooms, and mozz called the Brooklyn, which proponents
    will claim is even better than the Manhattan, but only
    because they're poor.

    The bar's packed full of beers like Anchor Steam, Bass,
    Negra Modelo, and Blue Moon, plus cocktails like various
    mojitos, caipirinhas, and frozen drinks like Mudslides --
    which're just one more reason to be glad you don't have to
    pay for half that wash.

    The party tomorrow runs from 6-8pm with open bar, free grub,
    and tunes by Mark Leventhal.

    Why was this post not made more prominent? I am upset, I never like to miss free food and alcohol. Next time....
