No Booze on the (Miami) Beach!

Written by buzz. Posted in Travel

Miami's Guilty Pleasures !

Sip on your favorite tropical cocktail while tanning and sun bathing in the sands, has been the hottest selling feature of Miami’s ocean front resorts and restaurants, especially the South Beach section of these hospitality joints. But nobody ever bothered to check if it was even legal to bring boozes to the beach. Until recently when City Attorney Jose Smith reviewed the city’s rules and made this law see the light of the day.

After registering hundreds of complaints on littering and drinking this spring break, city attorney officers started looking at the beach liquor sale, and enforced the city’s drinking law, banning consumption and sales of alcohol in public places.

Hotels are allowed to sell alcohol within the hotel premises, but the beachfront patios that line the sand must be alcohol free, as per the rule. David Kelsey, president of the South Beach Hotel & Restaurant Association of Miami however told, reassuring the travelers, that city commissioner is already working on a proposal to issue permits for beach liquor sales, after which it will be business as usual.

Until these hotels at South Beach Miami including upscale Ritz-Carlton, Diano etc get the permit to serve liquor at the beach; it’s a tough job for police officials to keep a tab on travelers coming to Miami in a partying mood.

With eye catching views of Miami beaches from the vantage of Bentley Beach Hotel to unbound scenic treasures of Everglades National Park, fluxed with the three drama queens and their bikini clad fun fight and controversies that we witnessed all throughout season one, this season leaves us even more intrigued and waiting.

Though the rumor on Kim Kardashian leaving LA to make Miami her first home has been cleared on her blog stating Miami would only be a good second home for her, its well known that many Hollywood icons looking out for peace of mind and time away from paparazzi, choose to split their time between Beverly Hills and South Florida Beaches. That includes celebrities like Madonna, Gloria Estefan, Whitney Houston and Oprah Winfrey, to name a few. Some are long term residents while others have Miami as their second or third homes, raising the real estate bar in the area nevertheless.

The sneak preview of season 2 ‘Kourtney and Khloe take Miami’ is already out and floating all over the internet as Kardashian sisters all set to promote the first episode and looking forward to a hit season once again.
