I miss Castle Grand Prix.

Cant forget FCAT day's and the entire school district on a small stretch of beach. (southpoint)
K.R.E.A.M ya digg?
I wouldn't put Zoe's as one of the best things about Miami, but definately memorable.

Northwestern and Carol City were the official high schools as far as sports, parties, dope boys, etc., but Norland, American, NMB, and Killian had the broads. I put work in at all of those schools.
I am heading back from ATL tommorrow gonna head by the old neighboorhood ( oakland park and 55th tree Gardens ) I remember waiting for the city but by the wall and throwing rocks at it why becuase we were stupid kids.
