Hey Google friends / friends employed at Google: does anyone know who I can contact if some venue metadata isn't showing correctly? Kareem's new theater shows metadata for a different theater. We've already entered the new venue in Google Places. (Example: google "O Cinema Miami Beach".)

Any leads would be useful, thanks!

Looks like another hackathon - this time in conjunction with a local Miami Beach museum and art-centric. The organizer told me that there was a cash prize but I'm trying to get that in writing.

So in the two times I have gone to San Francisco, I have bumped into +Natalie Villalobos in COMPLETELY RANDOM CIRCUMSTANCES. The last time was browsing SFMoMA by myself, and this time was grabbing lunch at SFO. Kismet, I say!

Funny, when I saw her check-in I wondered whether you were her favorite Ernie. Serendipitous +Natalie Villalobos sightings are the best.

Did I commit a cardinal ethnic sin and compliment William Hung? Kind of.

So it's official: The scrappy theater space in Wynwood that all the hipsters love now has a second O Cinema branch, this time in Miami Shores, in the same location as the Miami Theater Center. In case you're wondering: MTC still has theatrical performances there, but they also now program movies during non-theatrical weekends. Anyone who has spent time in Miami Shores knows that it has very... different... neighborhood demographics than Wynwood, and as such, the programming is shifted accordingly: a lot more classic "art house" and family friendly films are shown here, as well as special art performances such as the Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema format. (As of the time of this review, upcoming movies include a sing-along Wizard of Oz event as well as a documentary of a chess team in Brooklyn. As far as venues go, if you're expecting your movie theater to look like an actual movie theater, you're in the right place - no converted warehouse here, just a full 300-seat theater with a giant screen and an art deco lobby full of refreshments. So yeah - it's all the indie movie goodness of O Cinema, but in a format where you can actually take your great-aunt from out of town or your nine year old cousin. I don't think they're fans of The Human Centipede 2, anyway.

O Cinema on the outside looks like another warehouse in the Wynwood District, and that makes sense, because it was. But if you go inside, not only do you have a theater with theater seating, but a concessions area that has a place to show video art, as well as two gallery spaces and a store that sells women's jewelry. You don't see the AMC doing that. As far as the movies they show, they show films every Thursday to Sunday and you can always check out their website - as of the time I'm writing this review, that includes a documentary of Yves Saint Laurent's lover, a documentary on how to live forever, and an independent Thai ghost story. Get your culture on!

Finding an authetic Filipino restaurant in the Miami area is like finding a yeti. Actually, it's like finding a yeti riding on a unicorn sliding down a rainbow. But somehow after a random google search for "Filipino food Miami" (after an unsuccessful one nine months before) I found this place and went. My experience with Filipino food is the following: I'm not Filipino, but my roommates in college were all Filipino and thus my fascination was born. My first dish I learned how to cook was chicken adobo, we had spam fried rice, learned that diniguan was called "chocolate meat" and wasn't made from chocolate and ate it up anyway. To be honest, Filipino food is pretty similar to Cuban cuisine: there is bistec, lechon is still fried pork wherever you go, there's the aversion to chilis and any type of vegetable is an afterthought, stewed with meat, if at all. That said, there are some dishes taken from Chinese culture - lumpia (egg rolls, but skinnier and more meaty), pancit (chow mein, basically) stuff like that. This place is legit. It's in a strip mall in North Miami Beach, you walk in, there's a super friendly family serving up food cafeteria style, and there's satellite television of Filipino variety shows going on (when we were there it was essentially an American Idol for folks over 40. Pretty amazing.) It's pretty clear that the restaurant is targeted for Filipino ex-pats, and that's okay in my book: if you want overpriced fusion with a fancy interior decorator, go to Gigis. We ended up getting a bunch of things: pork adobo (pork braised in soy, vinegar & garlic) which was REALLY good, along with pancit palabok, lumpia, a skewer or two and sizzling sisig. (Best way to describe it is... hmm... maybe a chopped up picadillo? Their version used all the parts of the pig though, and the texture turned off some of my friends who weren't necessarily used to it.) The owner told us there was a Cebu style lechon in the back but we passed on it. We also sampled the banana turon (fried banana) which was legit too. Just this week a friend shared on Facebook an online comic from The Oatmeal where most Asian restaurants in small towns - yes, and Miami - serve every single type of Asian food under one roof, all kinda mediocre. I'm happy to say that this one is definitely good, legit authentic and even though I kinda live far, I'll be traveling as far as I need to go for some legit Filipino food.
