” Miami Vibes ” … written by Big Virge 9/12/2015

So, finally I stop in Miami for a couple of nights, having passed through the airport to go elsewhere previously.

So, a rather, unhelpful girl, questioned my receipt for a free transfer to my hotel, but, eventually accepted that I was due a spot on the bus !

The volume of Latinos & South Americans who are in this part of America is evident, from the airport, to the hotel, just from the volume of Spanish being spoken !!!!

So, off to the, ” Intercontinental “, which overlooks the bay, and is basically downtown ….

…. and WOW …. What a cool spot !!!

A … Very Old Hotel, by all accounts, but, fully decked out !

As per my trip to Maui, last year, the front desk guy was immediately on some,

” I’ll upgrade you sir ! “, without batting an eyelid, so, 12th floor, overlooking the bay, rather than my original room, which had a basic view of the bricks and mortar of downtown Miami !!!

So, already feeling the vibe of the place, my second encounter with my bell hop, was very cool too, as he explained that my room had some nice touches, like, electronic blinds so I need not leave my bed when going to sleep, or, when wanting to view the bay from my bed, upon waking up !!!!!

Also, info watch folks … !!!!!

There were some beverages placed on what, appeared to be a tray !!!!

Well, NOT QUITE … !!!

It was actually an, electronic device, which, he stated, charged the room, as soon as any of the items were lifted from their respective positions !!!!!

Nice !!!!!

…. but, not if you’re not made aware of such, subtle extravagances, which would clearly cost ya a fair penny !

Anyway, shower and food, as it was already 11 pm on Friday night, so, I wanted to try and sample the nightlife !!!

Well, the main restaurant stayed open late at the weekends thankfully, so, dinner was an 11.30 job in a very, swankily designed area, adjacent to the lobby and bar !!!!

I was greeted by a very cool, Peruvian waiter, named Rodrigo, who was very talkative, so, after having some, Delicious lamb, and an absolutely, spot on steak, with lots of Latin spices and a Colombian Bread, that just melted as soon as it touched my palette, he explained that the restaurant was owned and designed by a Mexican, who had a chain that was in places from, New York to Dubai, and to be fair, it wasn’t cheap, but, wasn’t crazy expensive either, but man, the food was exquisite !!!!!

Had a selection of what appeared to me, to be, steroid abusers, well, body builders, at the table across from me, a sight that I not only expected to, but, did see during the next couple of days in Miami !!!!

Maybe they were clean … ???

…. but, this is Miami, and, as Rodrigo and I ended up discussing, as cool as Miami is, pretence in Floridians, is as common as you’d expect in a place where money is flaunted !!!

We spoke on a multitude of topics, and he explained, that I could walk around safely, but shouldn’t do it downtown, as crime is quite regular, and we’re talking some pretty nasty ish’ … !!!

People are regularly held up, or, as he stated, CUT UP … by those below the poverty line !!!

However he stated that rather than head to South Beach, I should try the, Brickell Village, as its bars and clubs stay open, pretty much, through the night, and has a cool vibe, and, Hot Chicas’, are all over the place !!!!

As our conversation became more extensive, he explained about his reasons for leaving his home in Peru.

The story, sadly, encompassed being impoverished, and as beautiful as Peru is, he warned against staying in Lima, as crime levels have increased considerably, in recent times there.

Considering he was working, we really did have a very extensive conversation, which broached everything from, family, to appearance and judgement, as he explained that he liked to rock a FULL ON, ” Billy Goat Gruff “, type of look, which his wife, and work, prohibited him from sporting, and he suggested that, my hair would draw, quite a lot of attention, but was a popular look in Miami.

Well, as ever, I explained that it’s not all good, and that it tends to expose ignorance in people, pretty quickly !

Thus, time to find out if he was right, well, as ever, being in a money environment, exposes you to a very different attitude from people, because of the assumption, that you must be loaded !!!

Well, as I hit the bar for my customary, holiday XO, a white guy who was there on his own, immediately said hello, and chat began.

He was a very, cool looking, 50 year old dude, and he quickly stated, was a 6 figure earning realtor, who had found God, a recently born again Christian, so, I was on some …

“Okay, let me drink my drink and move on type vibes “, in my mind, but, as he talked more, he said he was a Rotarian, and that he was in the process of trying to provide affordable housing for the poor, that encompassed, I guess, more than the norm, as in, providing schemes to not only house, but to, educate and provide ways to employ, and secure things like, child care, so that these people could eventually sustain themselves gainfully, as he claimed his, Christian faith, had instructed him to do this !!!!

An interesting chap right … ???

He also claimed to have invested 300 thousand dollars, of his own money, over the last three years, and had networked with developers, to bring his idea to fruition, downtown, in Miami.

Indeed, an interesting guy, who then explained that he’d just got divorced, due to meeting another Christian Woman, who was a catalyst for change in what was clearly, a wealthy, but, unhappy existence !

Interesting doesn’t even, begin to explain this dude, as he then invited me to go partying with him !!!!

Hmmmm…. Quite the Christian, as he explained when we left the bar, at 2 am, to go looking for a good time !

Well, as he explained about his run ins wih women and hookers in Miami … It wax clear he wasn’t quite as, squeaky clean, as I suggested to him, a Good Christian should be !!!!!!

He seemed to appreciate my candour, so, then was like, “i’m gonna take you to The Brickells'”, so we can look for some pussy !!!!

I was of course, willing, and next thing he was taking me to his apartment, or, should I say Private Condo building, to pick up his car, well, TRUCK !!!!

… so we could drive to a favourite spot of his called, ” The Blue Martini ” …. A bar come club.

It reminded me of some, Dave Chappelle stand up, where he spoke on white peoples’ attitude to breaking the law, when driving, as my newfound, buddy for the night, Robert, had already had a few too many to be driving, i’d imagine, according to local law !!!!

Now, he wasn’t like, blind drunk, but, was def’ over the limit, not that he cared one iota !!!!!

So, as he takes me into this, again …. Very Plush Building … !!! … with, reception security as we entered, we go up like, 20 floors, and then I see this blacked out, heavy duty, pick up, that now proved he was no bullshitter !!!!

Money – YES, clearly in ABUNDANCE !!!!!

So, off we go, the truck was, SO BIG, that it could barely make the bends, to get out of the car park !!!!

Classic Mustangs, etcetera, on every floor !!!!

As we roll into the village, he points out new developments downtown, that are far from affordable, but, have waiting lists to get into !!!

1 & 2 bed condos’ that go for 300 thousand Dollars, upwards, that are in 60 floor buildings !!!!!

We get to the bar at 3, and he says it shuts at 4 !!!!!

The doorman, when he sees me, is ready to turn me away, until I drop, that the bar needs some London vibes !!!!

He smiles, but, as I have no I.D. …. He starts trying it, and basically, demands cash for him to let me in, so I get him to accept a 20, but, the cover is still a further 50 to get in !

Robert, who was vex that I paid the doorman, without batting an eyelid, covers the 50 for me, and party time begins !!!!!

Well, cool spot it was !!!!!

One floor up from ground level, all on one floor, but, with an outdoor bar, as well as two other bars, and people could dance where they wanted.

Latin tunes were thumping, with that, electronic edge to them, a mostly, mature crowd, so, we were good !

My man was scoping immediately, so, as I said to him, quite the Christian …. Ha Ha …. !!!!

So, having bought the first drink, the lil’ hottie’, who served it, got REALLY Pissy, when she received no tip !!!!

It was like a Reservoir Dogs moment, as, unless I get some exceptional service, i’m not tipping, just because ?!?

However, as Robert quickly explained, the service industry staff in The US, get paid so poorly, that they need their tips, so, I obliged, mainly because …. she was f’ing hot !!!!!

So, we started to prowl, and BOOM …. It was as if this, Super Fine Chica’, could smell the money, and Robert was that dude !!!!!

So, after he bought us, two HUGE Cohiba’ Cigars !!!!!

I told him to get on her cos’, she was eyeing him up …. and, he was in like Flint !!!!!

She was tall & sexy, but, very flirtatious !!!!

So, I started to get down to the tunes, and drank and smoked to my hearts content …. and had a great time, til’ 5 !!!!

In the meantime, Robert had dished the girl his business card, but said that he knew she used him for drinks, but, for that, he got to grab her up !!!! tits and ass, but he was one of quite a few, who did …..

Different town, same old ish’ ….

Hot chicks doing their, teasing and gold digging thing, which now, makes me laugh, because they’re so f’ing obvious !!!

So, Crazy Night … Crazy Christian Guy …. But I had a great time !!!!!

The Virge, getting some Miami vibes, thankfully, without the vice !!!!!

Onwards and upwards, as my next trip would take me to Honolulu, Hawaii ….

More to come folks …..

One.
