Good morning, South Florida. Care to venture in the slipstream?

1. I know there's an answer 

"Dude, what are you wearing to the beach?"

"I don't know, maybe my Uma Thurman in 'Kill Bill' bodysuit. I'm also bringing my toothbrush. You?"

"I think I'll break out my Willy Wonka gladiator tunic with the candy-necklace straps."

"Nice! Maybe Sandy will wear her avocado hat." 

Recommended listening: "Silver" by Waxahatchee

2. Reel talk

It takes a special kind of idiot to question a woman's right to fish, but then, the Internet is filled with special idiots. The women Barbara Corbellini Duarte interviewed for her feature "Florida's fishing girls of Instagram" are pretty good at shutting down their critics. "I feel like most women can play and do most sports men can do,” one Fort Lauderdale angler tells Duarte. “I can handle it, and then prove them wrong and earn some respect.”

3. It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times

“I think everyone who submits stories for this machine are all depressed.” In literature as in life, you get what you pay for.

Recommended listening: "Century" by Feist

4. Slava's sense of snow 

"A tsunami of bubbles is blown from the back of the stage into the audience sitting in the orchestra level. Onstage, a clown carrying a butterfly net appears overwhelmed. He is flanked by two other clowns playing teeny, tiny accordions." Dear God, why have you forsaken us?

Recommended listening: "Tears of a Clown" by the English Beat

5. Have a great Tuesday!

As Phillip Valys reports in his weekly roundup of South Florida drinking events, today is National Tequila Day. You know what to do. At least, I hope you do.

P.S. Phillip is the author of a new drinking newsletter, the Shot Caller. You can sign up for it here.

Recommended listening: "Astral Weeks" by Glen Hansard
