Making nice in Miami can mean chowing down for the hungry

So what, you might be wondering, is the fifth event? That would be Miami Spice, my finely fattened friends. This year Miami Spice has joined auspices with SOS. Not only will the restaurants be offering their unique, three-course prix fixe specials for August, using goods dispensed by brands such as Evian and illy, American Express will donate a portion of proceeds for every Spice transaction that involves the company. And many establishments will be running their menus for two months, which means that Miami Spice has a good chance of making a difference not just in our waistlines but in the coffers of hunger relief. When you consider that Miami is the largest metro area in the country with the largest population living under the poverty level, dining might just become the most important lip service in town.
