A Fake Pool in The Miami Design District is Taunting You During the Summer Olympics

Omega, the luxury watch brand, is celebrating the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo, which began today, by dressing up their store in the Miami Design District and scattering big Olympic-themed kchotchkies around the neighborhood. One of those is a diorama-like display near the shape of a giant fake pool meant to be an ode to Olympic swimming. Out in the sweltering Miami heat, without water, is it just a big blue tease?

Inside Aventura Mall’s Big, Futuristic New Wing, Designed by Carlos Zapata

Aventura Mall's huge new wing, designed by architect Carlos Zapata, opened recently.

Weird Capital One Bank/Cafe Mashups are Coming to Lincoln Road and Miracle Mile

Boy, Lincoln Road has really jumped the shark. Look what's coming: Capital One Bank, known for its silly but rather jarringly un-Lincoln Road-ish "What's in Your Wallet?" commercials is apparently opening a cafe on Lincoln Road. Signage with the bank's logo and the word 'cafe' is clearly visible at the construction site.

That Kind of Controversial New Ross Has Opened on Lincoln Road

The much talked about new Ross Dress for Less has opened on Lincoln Road in South Beach in its dramatic but rather mall-like new building, and here it is. Some people think it's just the latest symbol of the mall-ification of Lincoln Road, others a great place for inexpensive clothing in the middle of expensive Miami Beach, better than the abandoned frontage that had occupied that site (the long-gone Caribe Theatre) for years, or a cheap tourist magnet. Whatever you think, check out these photos of the new place. Yay or nay? Let us know in the comments.
