    Default Any HBO "Ballers" Fans Here?

    Love the show. Best way to describe it is as the Miami version of "Entourage".

    Yes! Great show that showcases all the best parts of Miami and rarely any of the worst. I do like Dwayne Johnson (the Rock), but not a superfan. It's basically a soap opera for guys .

    yeh love the show. waiting for a few episodes to air before I start watching new season so I can watch 2-3 at once. (short show, only 30 mins).

    I want to do that Biltmore Brunch now after seeing that spread last season! $106 with tip per person!

    Which restaurant was Suh Casa? (Opening show last week)...was it River Yacht Club??....I need to check out Biltmore, though I will probably skip on that $106 brunch.

    We are big fans.

    The hubs is actually in an upcoming episode. He plays Jim Peterson, a developer in Miami Beach.

    He actually spent the day with Andy Garcia and said he is super nice.

    They needed someone about The Rock's size.

    I'm gonna hit it up, just need someone to go with. (Wife doesn't eat a lot so the $100 is a waste).

    We're having a (fingers crossed) record month this July so I'm definitely gonna treat my self to one of the top Miami spots that have been on my list for the time I've lived here!

    Just got renewed for season 3!

    Looks like it's a place called Seaspice (Suh Casa).

    Here's a great recap that covers the locations:

    He played Jim Peterson. He was at the power lunch in the early scene. Purple shirt at the table with Andy Garcia and two other people.

    Welp, looks like the tax incentives have dried up so they are turning tail and fleeing to LA like most shows in Miami have done over the years. I was hoping they would be the exception though.

    That's a shame. Though can't be surprised.

    Yep. Only two shows immediately come to mind that didn't give in to the lure of cheaper filming locales: Miami Vice and Burn Notice.
