MSP hound here. Thanks, first of all, for all of the great info on your regional board (and Frodnesor, your blog). I'll be in town Mon-Wed night on short notice and have some great-sounding plans (At a glance, it looks like Joe's, Talula and Versailles for my dinners would be a good sampling).
That said, I'll have an afternoon to wander and was hoping to find a stretch of neighborhood to drop into markets, etc. and do a little noshing while enjoying the ability to wander outside in December without my nose hairs freezing.
I'm thinking something like the Mission in San Francisco. Just people going about their daily lives (as opposed to something like Little Italy in Manhattan). I have visions of kids selling churros, lunch counters in the back of grocery stores, whatever...just strapping on my running shoes and delighting the tastebuds a dollar or two at a time.
So, anything like this? I don't mind driving 20 or 30 miles (starting from the airport) if there's a good reason.
Thanks again. I'm really not too familiar with Miami and surrounding so I'm excited for the trip. I just wish I had more time to prep/do my own research.
