Weekend Blog Watch - Beer, Duck, Seedlings, Shots, Pigs, Chavez, and Ag

October: season of growth and change. Sure, we don't have a typical American autumn, but here it's always fall as long as the coconuts do. Let the recent heatwave suffuse your being with the chaotic energy of the city, and let our food reflect it. We're a run and gun urban subtropical paradise. Let's eat. Here are some recent posts from food blogs round the way.

Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
