    Miami’s 2020 Super Bowl Will Bring Opportunities



    The final whistle has blown on this year’s Super Bowl in Minneapolis, with the game considered to have been a big success for the NFL and the city. Atlanta’s up next, and then before you know it, it will once again be Miami’s time to shine. I had the opportunity to go to the game in Minneapolis, speak with local and league officials, discuss what went into ensuring it was a positive experience, and begin the work that needs to be done for our community for the 2020 game. The Miami Super Bowl Host Committee is dedicated to having Super Bowl LIV be a positive experience — not just for the people who come to visit our community for the week of the game but for the millions of us who call this community home.

    Featured Restaurant: Mojo Donuts & Fried Chicken



    In 2013, Shawn and Shelley Neifeld opened Mojo Donuts in Pembroke Pines. They’d noticed a trend of boutique doughnut shops sweeping the nation and decided it was South Florida’s turn. Their passionate food preparation and creative menu made their shop extremely popular, so much so, that customers were driving all the way from the Keys just to get their hands on the delicious creations. Soon there was a general cry for a more accessible location to the South. Jimmy Piedrahita and Willie Muñoz, a creative business duo whose friendship and work relationship spanned decades, answered the call. Together, they approached Shawn, and all three decided to create a new landmark dining spot in Miami. The Westchester location offers golden fried chicken along with its doughnts, a brand new menu item.
