Friday night I attended the Transplant Foundation’s fundraising event called Emerald Nights. The event took place at Miami’s Jungle Island and although I met some fun people, the critters were the evening’s highlight. Okay, I met some great people and enjoyed some tasty food, too. Thanks to my Uncle for inviting me – he was the evening’s co-chair and he did a fabulous job! Enjoy these snapshots from the evening.

Feel as though I need to justify the quality of the above image – it was taken with my iPhone4 and the flash is funky on it, which is caused by my phone case. I used an Instagram filter to enhance it a bit.

Alex’s autobiography Sins of South Beach The True Story of Corruption, Violence, Murder and the Making of Miami Beach will be made into a major motion picture. I ordered the book and will share my review once finished. I will say, some of the tales Alex shared with me that night (like throwing bad people over bridges to kill them) were quite fascinating, can’t wait to read the book. Check out his website.
