A- The Heat Lightning posts a video interview of the organizers of The Borscht Film Festival that is conducted in what looks like a utility closet.
B- South Florida has some nasty stadium food, according to Eater Miami.
C- Jennifer's bike brightens Ipanemic's day and it's easy to see why.

C&B Farms is sandwiched between Clewiston and the edge of the Everglades. According to owner Chuck Obern, the farm is 2500 acres in size, with 1500 acres that are tillable. Of that, 1000 acres are planted conventionally and 500 acres are in organic production. Chuck offered us a quick tour of his farm, so Margie and I hopped into his truck and headed down a sandy road into the heart of the farm. One side of the farm is organic, and the other side is conventionally farmed. The two sides are separated by a large ditch and a row of of trees. Each side has separate farming equipment and packing lines, where the produce is rinsed and boxed, and there’s a separate organic section in the enormous cooler.E- The Miami-Dade/Collier off-road park out in way West Miami-Dade is dead and Eye on Miami speculates why.
