The next time you need to cancel your beach plans due to rain and the kids are bouncing off the walls, look no further than Wynwood's Fun Dimension.

At Fun Dimension your family and friends will enjoy laser tag, spin zone, bungy dome, indoor playground, 7D theater, and arcade with redemption. I visited recently with my daughter. We enjoyed the variety of activities, clean environment, and attentive staff without the long lines and 4 hour drives of amusement parks.

"The FunDimension lounge, also known as The Galley, offers modern amenities in a comfortable setting for parents and friends to socialize while children play for hours on end. The Galley features plush and comfortable seating, Wi-Fi, and mounted high definition TVs displaying various sports and entertainment. A delicious world class restaurant serves a variety of healthy and delectable foods for both adults and children alike. The lounge also features a selection of beers and wines for the adults to enjoy."

The decision process to buy or rent your home can be difficult as it is impacted by dynamic known and unknown variables.

Although there is no absolute science to the decision, I find the attached excel sheet can be helpful in providing an analytical tool for consideration.

It calculates the internal rate of return of buying vice renting a home.

If you asked me to rate CVI.CHE 105 when I first moved to Miami, I would give its Ambiance- 9.4, Service- 9.2, & Food Taste and Presentation- 9.7.

While this is still one of my favorite restaraunts of all time and a place every visitor and local resident must experience at least once, sadly the restaraunt has declined in all three areas.

Here are my ratings:

Ambiance- 8 The downtown location has become increasingly congested at entry and is too noisy. The new entry is cumbersome and it is annoying to have to breathe in smoke while you are waiting to get a seat or upon leaving and waiting for valet to get your car. South Beach is similar. I love to sit outside, but if one person lights a cigarette on the sidewalk the meal is ruined.

Service- 7.5 The service could be better. On recent visits the waiters forgot the roasted corn, failed to refill the water, and made simple mistakes on the orders.

Food Taste and Presentation- 9 On a recent visit I ordered chicken and it was very dry. Over the years prices have increased and portion sizes have decreased, but the ceviche is still excellent. Despite some of my construtive comments above I still love this restaraunt and hope it will someday return to its prior excellence.

Enjoy the video!

When you decide to list your property. It may be wise to keep it off of MLS. A licensed Realtor can provide suggestions on the practice. Here is a good article everyone selling a home should read.

I suffer from acid reflux and have to control when and what I eat to help prevent it. Cutting pizza out of my diet has helped me for several years. Earlier this year I read an inspriational article in the Miami Herald about Renato Viola (http://www.miamiherald.com/entertainment/restaurants/article203923009.html). Renato Viola was granted an O-1 Visa to the United States based on his extraordinary ability as an award-winning pizza chef in Italy. The same night I went to Mister O1 Pizza on South Beach and tried the pizza. To my delight the pizza did not give me acid reflux and it was so good I ate it three nights in a row!

Ambiance- 8.5 This South Beach location is very tiny and hidden at 1680 Michigan Avenue. I go for the Pizza and appreciate the fact that money is going into the food cost not the rent. I challenge you to find better food on Lincoln Road. Each location plays the same soundtrack and serves up the same food, so the dining experience is consistent. If you want to stretch your legs go to Wynwood, if you want cozy dining go to South Beach.

Service- 8.9 The service is simple and the staff is very knowledgable and friendly. You should find the service very ample for a pizza place. Kids recieve extra special attention including gift shirts and nutella pizzas.

Food Taste and Presentation- 9.8 You could go to Italy, but why? The best Pizza is here in Miami. I suggest the Ricardo with chicken and Maria. My daughter loves the personal pepperoni pizza.

Enjoy the videos!

Jorge Perez of Related Group is finishing close-out now on Paraiso Bay, one of four towers, in the Paraiso development in Edgewater.

At the heart of the luxury development you will find Amara, "The Quintessential Miami waterfront restaurant" from James Beard Award-winning Chef and restaurateur, Michael Schwartz.https://amaraatparaiso.com. I consider myself a food snob and gave Amara a shot tonight. I will return often to try more dishes and confidentally share this postive experience with family and friends.

I rate the experience per the below (1-lowest / 10-highest):

Ambiance- 9.2 Amara fits seamlessly into the Paraiso development and the bay. The main dining room is warm and inviting complimented nicely by a well appointed bar at one end and an open kitchen with open flame at the other. My favoriate tables are on the patio. Diners on the patio enjoy panoramic bay views in an intimate, yet relaxing envornment. There is also room to lounge both at the foot of the deck and on the second floor indoor-outdoor lounge.

Service- 8.7 The wait staff is attentive, relaxed, knowledgeable, and does a nice job explaining the menu options and making reccomendations.

Food Taste and Presentation- 9.4 I chose the grilled beef short rib with creamed corn, pickled onion, and queso fresco for my entree; the charred snap peas vegatable side; and the chocolate torte for dessert. Each plate of food was served with an appealing presentation and brought complimentary flavors to the meal in the correct portion size. The meat was fall-off-the-bone tender and flavored to perfection. The torte was decadent and combined the right amount of richness and chocolate sweentess atop a nicely crisped crumb type crust. My only negative comment to the chef's team: remove and discard the stem end and string from each snap pea pod moving forward.
