Truth man, truth . Still can't find a good bagel here though. Would be nice if the only decent pizza place in Weston didn't charge 3 bucks a slice too *bitching* *moaning*..

Just kidding. It encourages me to eat healthier anyway.

Now THAT is a great idea! If you are under 40 I would say it is safe to rule out Lauderdale altogether, it's definitely a younger scene.

Or Pizza. Some people think NY pizza is good. NY Pizza is "ok'. New Jersey Pizza, now that's Pizza. I had a guy in South Jersey who would make me 5 large pies, fast freeze em and fed ex em down. 5 bucks for each pie and 25 bucks for fedex. What a deal.


Now Bagels are another story. Gotta get those babies when they're just made. I haven't seen Salt Sticks since living in jersey and that was back when the teredactles and other dinosaurs roamed the earth

They sell them at PUBLIX here!. They aren't half bad either to my surprise. This place in Davie makes some amazing bialys as well.

To avoid drifting so off topic, it is true that Sarasota almost seems like a midwestern city in Florida to me and Boca Raton seems like an extension of Long Island.

For me, it may boil down to which area has the greater supply of divorcees

At Publix? I must ask. This I have to see

I'd agree for the most part with your colorful descriptives of the two areas.

For the most part

I vote Boca Raton. I lived in South Florida and I don't want to go back. . . but if I was single, it would be a different story.

Sarasota seems an extension of the Chicago area as much as Boca is of NY. I grew up in NY, Chicago is an amazing city second to none..Sarasta seems to be well on it's way to reflect that as well. The original poster also should check out Clearwater.. The east coast just doesn't have the waterfront and large bays to compete from that perspective.. The puny intracoastal in SE Florida doesn't compare.. Sort of like comparing the Hudson or East River in Manhattan to having Lake Michigan and the winding Chicago River at your doorstep in Chicago..lol

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm not much into boating so large bays are not important to me. Having said that, the east coast does have the Keys and the Bahamas - albeit a little further out. Clearwater, although a nice beach area, is not my cup of tea.

A factor of interest is that the nighttime temperature on the SE coast is 5-10 degrees warmer this time of year than the west coast (ie Sarasota/Tampa Bay). I think it has to do with the gulf current hitting that area more directly. That will be nice in January.

I am probably going to wind up in the vicinity of Boca, and maybe spend some time in Sarasota. Of course I will have my "New Yorker excess boasting meter" handy at all times. I haven't had the need for a Chicago one. Yet.
