Letter from the Editor Of Land, Sea & Me M y family says I took my first step on the beach, and ever since, it seems I never quite stopped my trek along the shore. As a kid, I’d walk along the sand for miles, exploring. In my teenage years, I spent my beachside adventures blowing off some steam from all that teen angst (and homework). In college, I’d pass the days by the sea working on my tan in between classes and late-night crams. Today, I go mostly to swim and run, and to spend time with family and friends in the welcomed shade of palm trees or an oversized umbrella. No matter which direction my life has gone, the ocean has always been part of it. This past year I spent a lot of time on the shores of Crandon Park and Bill Baggs in between research trips and interviews for the 2011 Annual Guide you hold in your hands. Although the legwork is immense, so is the passion we put into this project each year. Outside of Key Biscayne options, our editors scoured the surrounding areas to introduce you to some of our favorite people, places and pastimes from Downtown Miami to Brickell, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, South Miami, Miami Beach, Midtown and the Design District. We understand your social calendar takes you outside of the Key from time to time and we want to make sure your experiences off the island are as pleasurable as the ones on. Feel free to take this guide with you wherever you go, jot notes on it, rip out relevant pages, keep it on your coffeetable — we tried to make it as timeless as possible so it’s useful all year long. If you think we missed something, or want to make suggestions for the 2012 Annual Guide, please get in touch with me at Editor@ KeyBiscayneMag.com. After all, this is your guide. Have fun flipping through. And enjoy 2011! Jorge Arauz Editor-in-Chief 18 K ey B iscayne G u i de 2 010
