Maxim names 'Miami' No. 1 party city - 10/22/2007 - MiamiHerald.com (broken link)

I heard this on the radio this morning. When they read off the list of qualifying items I cringed at each one. By the end of the list I had no surprise that Miami would be #1. Items included number of divorces, number of strip clubs, gambling laws, condom sales as well as some things that weren't totally socially negative, such as 24-hour businesses. Overall though the radio report made it sound like our city was just a big cestpool of filth and decadence. Even sadder was the fact that the radio announcer seemed very proud of it.

What else can you expect. Miami has nothing to offer except "filth and decadence".

HGONZOO1 , you do make some good posts from time to time ... but c'mon Miami has nothing to offer except "filth and decadence " , please are you not exagerating just a tad ?

There are still good people in Miami and Dade County , and your comment is real offensive to those people . There was a guy on here who was non stop negativity , at first his posts were interesting , but then they grew tiresome then annoying , then just plain hateful ... it was guy from California who was living in Homestead I cannot recall his name .... but c'mom you are a smart person , do not go that route ... it sounds like you are spewing hate and you are better than that .... be cool .

I think you're referring to Cixel, who has apparently been banned during the summer.

But anyway, it's Maxim magazine... it's meant to be taken with a grain of salt.

Well you are right. The beaches are great, the food is delicious, some people are very nice and the skyline is awesome. Thanks for the compliments.

I do agree with some of your posts do not get me wrong , there are many negative many issues down here .... but there are also some nice things , case in point .. I love all of what you mention above and do not forget the lovely Latin girls ( I assume you are male ? ) . My girlfriend is Brazilian and lives with me in Boca Raton and we actually went to a barbeque down in Hialeah of all places last weekend to the home of the parents of a co worker of hers and we had a great time and they were very friendly and as the "gringo " all were super nice to me . I had never really been to Hialeah and although I still found the area very unappealing , it was a very nice surprise to have met really nice people and they all spoke English !!!

Be cool and take care
