Discovering Vintage Miami - Giveaway

Local Miami girl, food enthusiast, historian and all around great person Mandy Baca has written the book, Discovering Vintage Miami: A Guide to the City's Timeless Shops, Hotels, Restaurants & More. This is actually Mandy's second book, the first being Sizzling History of Miami Cuisine, The Cortaditos, Stone Crabs & Empanadas


This book is a guide to the not so glitzy, champagne bottle poppin side of Miami. It takes you to some iconic Miami relics as well as some places off the beaten path. This book purposefully ignores tourist trap places (Versailles) that everyone and their abuela knows to be merely hype, but instead focuses on 50 places that really make up the heart and soul of this city.  While highlighing places such as Arbetter's Hot Dogs, Fox's Sherron Inn and Stephen's Deli, Mandy provides insight and history on these places. Some of the places are news to even locals who grew up in Miami, making this book great for natives as well as for curious tourists.

It being a new year and all, I figured it would be a great way to kick off 2015 with a giveaway. I mean, who doesn't like winning free shit stuff?! So one lucky winner will get a signed copy of  Discovering Vintage Miami: A Guide to the City's Timeless Shops, Hotels, Restaurants & More.  The winner will be announced January 23, 2015. Not interested in waiting to see if you win a copy? No worries, buy it here.
