Miami for the 4th and the Biebs

I basically live for weekend trips. The more spontaneous the better–although, not so spontaneous that I can’t book reservations for all the places I want to eat. One of my most recent, was yet again with my sister, and yet again, to Miami. As I type this I realize it was also for a concert and not altogether spontaneous. Oops.

Long story short, our original plan was to see the Biebs in concert in Miami, but after deciding to see him in Philly instead (read: cheaper tickets), we were left with an already purchased priceline hotel room and tickets to the “after party” he was hosting at the Story- a club of Liv ilk in Miami Beach.

Thus we soldiered on down from West Palm to Miami and checked into the Intercontinental Hotel. It sits in downtown Miami and is not far from the American Airlines Arena where many large acts perform, but is about a $12 uber/$6 uber pool to South Beach.

We sat at the bar at the Intercontinental’s restaurant, Toro Toro, an outpost of its Dubai and D.C. locations, to order some snacks and cocktails while waiting for our room to become available. (pictured above)
