With just a day and a half left in voting,. Coral Gables and Coconut Grove are in a dead heat for the Snackdown title as the best dining area in Miami-Dade County. By this morning at 8, it was Coral Gables 365 votes, and. Coconut Grove 364. Both chambers of commerce have taken up the cause, and several restaurants are considering parties to end the shindig -- but only if their community wins.
It is a damn barn burner! So before Tuesday night at midnight, when the voting ends, cast your ballot.
