Papi’s Visual Guide to Little Havana


I’ve always had this fantasy of growing old in Miami. Own a cigar sports lounge, hire pretty waitresses and vibe on the front bench with my senior homies. We’ll talk is sports, culture and business all day. Think Hyman Roth meets the barbershop from Coming To America.

If the dream materializes, I want Emma’s Lounge (yep named it already) located in Little Havana. Took Sunday to explore my future stomping grounds. Think I’d spend my afternoons double sixing in Domino Park or reviewing Miami Film Festival flicks at MDC’s Tower Theater. Saucy 0ff spicy cuba libres at Versailles for lunch then walk off the calories en route to a chess match in Mickey D’s.

I said before Miami is #2 on my places to live now, but it’s first choice for retirement. Next list to conquer is cities I haven’t been yet. Top target? Big Havana.
