Sometimes I wonder how almost 100 people visit a post that asks them for their favorite restaurant and only 5 manage a response. I know there is tweeting and friending and checking in to do but when did maybe 10 letters and a click become so, so problematic? Yeah, I suppose I'm getting kinda tired of trying. Here's your evening Sift.
A- Eye on Miami covered today's vote on the Joe Robbie Stadium funding and PhinPhanatic tries to explain the ins and outs...
The biggest key issue outside of the actual funding is a deal that will not be similar to the one passed in order to get the Miami Marlins a new stadium. The Marlins ownership and negotiation team assured the city that they would keep a competitive product on the field, after the stadium was built, the owners traded away most of their high end payroll and high profile players. The Miami-Dade Commissioners wan’t written assurances from the Dolphins that a similar situation will not arise. The Dolphins have also agreed to open their financial books.B- All Purpose Dark wants you to know about something called the Saffron Supper Club.
C- Go Hydrology! says the water table in the swamp is dropping like a rock.
D- If you want a great ramen place, Food for Thought has one for you.

And that's pretty much all that's on the menu at his restaurant, with about 25 seats and a glassed-in kitchen all tucked into an old house in the Brickell area off Miami Avenue.E- O Cinema must have sent out a press release for this weekend's shows as both Sweat and Beached Miami share info on them.
F- FYI, there's something called the Chinese Village in Coral Gables, according to Curbed Miami and a new candy store on Lincoln Road says Eater Miami.
