Sandbar Lounge Has a Thanksgiving Buffet For You

For the last "eleven or twelve

years," Valentine Daliec, owner of Sandbar Lounge in Miami

Beach, has been putting out a free buffet for those who don't have

anywhere else to go. The unpretentious neighborhood bar, with sand on

the floor and Chinese lanterns overhead, has been owned by Daliec

since 1999. It opened in 1992.

Her gift to the community doesn't end

with a buffet that will include turkey, stuffing, green bean

casserole, brussel sprouts, yellow squash casserole, and mashed

potatoes. She will also be cooking for Saint Joseph's Church and

conducting a toy drive on behalf of the nearby parish. So even if

you're not going to stop by for some grub, Daliec encourages you to

drop off a toy.

"We like to make it look nice,"

she adds, saying, "we put tableclothes and flowers down."

Dinner is served at 5pm and goes until the food runs out. Homemade pies, including apple butter pumpkin, will also be served.
