At the Edge of the Curb


I had a great day at Stamp Miami teaching a wonderful group of ladies an Altered Books class today. The students were very excited and sure kept me on my toes today! Thank-you, Tami for having me and to all the super ladies that were in class today. I will be back in May to teach the class again and to teach Part II of the Altered Books Journey! Watch my web site for updates to my teaching schedule.

I ended the day with dinner in South Beach at a very good seafood restaurant called a A Fish Called Avalon (rated excellent by Zagat 2003/2004). Woo Hoo! The wait was long and our Maitre-D' named Pablo told us that they were expecting about 200 people who had made reservations. Okay, thank you Pablo for getting us hooked on the specials and then telling us we can't eat there until later! We decided to stroll down the strip to find something else at this point. It was already after 8:00PM and Renee and I were starving! A small table opened right on the edge of the street as we prepared to leave and Renee asked Pablo if we could have the table...? He dashes off with that "special" swagger and comes back to announce that we can, afterall, be seated! Imagine that! Yeah! Prime seat on the curb right near car exhaust and cigarette butts. Okay, it wasn't that bad. In fact, the food was great and the table provided us with a nice view for people-watching. Thanks, Renee for the great dinner and good company!
