Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Today and Saturday, I will be at @HollywoodFLCRA's #ParkingDay event, at Danish Pastry Co., @danishpastryco, and at The Greek Joint, @GreekJoint. Come by and see what's doing -and what's to eat!


Today and Saturday, I will be at the Hollywood CRA event, above, PARK(ing) Day Hollywood.





I will be spending Friday morning and afternoon at -and outside of2031 Tyler Street, which is Danish Pastry Hollywood Co., @danishpastryco a place that I can personally assure you is absolutely full of delicious food (and great coffee) and candies from all parts of, yes, Scandinavia.

Later I'll be at 1925 Hollywood Blvd., i.e. The Greek Joint, @GreekJoint the home of perhaps the best Greek food in South Florida I've eaten since being at a once-popular Greek restaurant on Lincoln Road on South Beach, where, Once Upon a Time, I celebrated my North Miami Beach High School graduation with family and friends, after leaving the ceremony held at the nearby Miami Beach Convention Center.






Depending upon how things are going, I may even shoot some video of my own about this for my YouTube Channel, a useful tool that, quite honestly, I've neglected for far too long.
But as you readers of the blog will be seeing in the future weeks, I will be doing something about changing that dynamic as local elections in South Florida get closer and candidate debates and forums suddenly multiply like mushrooms, and important public policy issues hang in the air, waiting for someone to answer them in an honest and forthright manner.
Assuming someone besides me actually asks them, of course.

I hope that as many of you as possible can make this event in-person at either location, either day, because I have attended similar Pop Up public policy events in other parts of the country, and, if done correctly, they can really give you a very different and unique perspective  on what we accept as "normal" within the streetscape and landscape that makes up our daily life.
And in South Florida, of course, that always includes parking.


So, come for the public policy lessons, but be sure to stay and check out the friendly customer service and delectable Cinnamon Swirls with Vanilla Icing!



More photos and details in coming days as I share what I/we learned at this weekend's @HollywoodFLCRA's #ParkingDay event.
