Where to Eat This Christmas

For some reason, it seems as if time really flew between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, which means that most of us have been scrambling to get our greeting cards and presents in order, as well as trying to keep track of the various holiday functions we feel obliged to attend. When your main preoccupation is trying to find just one good gift for your mom and realizing that you haven’t sent anything to your in-laws while they sent you a box of presents, the last thing on your mind is planning a Christmas (or Noche Buena) feast. Sure, you can do what I do and round up a selection of charcuterie and cheeses from Graziano’s and Epicure to nibble at throughout the holiday - or visit a Blue Sky for your lechón - but with so many fabulous restaurants offering such wonderful Christmas and Christmas Eve dinners, it’s hard not to take the easy way out and leave the preparations to the gourmet chefs. If you’re finding yourself in Miami without dinner plans this Christmas, let Joonbug outline a few suggestions for you:

Mother's Day Brunch

She gave birth to you, she raised you, she loved you, and if you're lucky, she probably cooked for you, too. Mothers are, without a doubt, extremely important. While we should be good children and celebrate our mothers every day of the year, it is on Mother's Day that we go all out and really show our appreciation to that woman who did so much for us. While Mother's Day celebrations are only limited by one's imagination, it seems as if the consensus is that a lavish brunch in in order....at least that's the idea that Miami's many restaurants offering Mother's Day brunches are seemingly pushing. Here are few suggestions that stand out:

CAUSE OF THE WEEK

Chet Settin': What Happened Over The Weekend

Good morning my Miami Joonbugs. I hope the late spring warmth is greeting you as you wake up. I have so many stories to tell you from this weekend, I just don't know where to start. So, as you may have heard, Joonbug and Fashion Indie hosted PROM Class of 2010 this past Saturday night at Espace in Midtown Manhattan. It was lovely to see everyone reminisce about their own high school proms, and I was surprised to see the guest's take on "adult" prom outfits. There were some best dressed, and as my column is not meant to attack or antagonize (we'll leave that to our Almost Famous writers), I will digress and leave out the worst dressed. I have highlights so I can keep you in the loop about what's going on over here in The Big Apple.
