SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT SNOWBIRD REPORTS:
Snowbird wonders if new Miami blog miamist is even based in Miami? Today's posting/sales pitch for Andre Balasz's Standard hotel in South Beach is only funny in light of the fact that the hotel is still not even open! The hotel is finished, but is awaiting all permits from the city. The October issue of Travel & Leisure was also guilty of jumping the gun with it's six-page feature penned by Tom Austin. In the meantime, according to the guy that answered the phone when I called, "It's opening any day now."
