(if you don't know that song then then name of this thread is probably not as funny to you...lol)

Where is the after-party? Anyone know? Who's eating where?
Any good suggestions?? I think an SC meetup with dinner and drinks is in order!

OMG...there better be!!!

Did the search just for you Lauren! Coconut Grove is the closest to the venue!

4 Coconut Grove
3015 Grand Avenue
Coconut Grove, FL 33133
(305) 447-9898

5 Dadeland
7497 Dadeland Mall
Miami, FL 33156
(305) 665-5400

See Locations A and C on the map. There's another that is north of Miami Beach if you guys want to consider that one IF you want to commit to the Cheesecake Factory! (btw, I make maps for a living and the google "way" makes me cringe, LMAO!)

Obviously...I'm all for it! :D

I am down for Cheesecake Factory if it's close, but after the show I'm not trying to drive an hour for an hour wait for cheesecake lol. I will be happy with some Sarah Lee Cheesecake and a bottle of wine from the grocery store by that point :)

Lauren, Cheesecake factory is good, but there is a super long wait most the time in the evenings.. If you wanna go Sunday I'm down.

Sunday would probably be the best...However, how late would the SC crew arrive at the restaurant? The last couple years, the finals haven't completed until 11pm or so (9ish or so was when Figure was over with). The dinner rush may be non-existent by the time we want to be there.

I'm pretty much up for anything.

Haha! I'm with you Becca! At that point, anything off from the pre-contest menu will be good with me! I like Cheesecake Factory's cheesecakes, but the food doesn't do a whole lot for me (besides wreak havoc on my GI tract!).

I'm down for where ever though, if a group is getting together for post show food/drink!

Becca Staggs
11-08-2011, 07:12 PM
I would definitely like to have the group get together, and that includes ANY SC members who wanna join (even though we may not all arrive or be able to sit together).

I say we find a place close by that we can get to within decent time, that has a wide variety of food and a bar for if we decide we want to stay and hang out.

It's South Beach, been there once. Shouldn't be hard to find. :party:

Getting together after the show is a great idea!! I am always trying to lure everyone out after the show but have a hard time getting the competitors to follow through on this. Most tend to be too tired. I'm usually raring to go!!
I also wanted everyone to be aware of how expensive South Beach is. You can spend $20/alcoholic drink easily and they add tip onto your bill automaticly since it is a high tourist area.

That's all I needed to know! I have a hard time eating after show one it's so late and two i would need to execute an exit plan as my body goes wacky when I partake of anything outside of clean eating....yes I took clean eating to a whole nother level so my body rejects the typical "post comp" fare. But a drink...oh who am I kidding drinks :p well now that's another story :awesome:

For anyone wanting Cheesecake Factory, but not wanting to trek over to Coconut Grove (which is pointless when you're already on the Beach), there's a Cheesecake Factory knock-off called Next Cafe on Lincoln Road. A warning, though, wait times will be just as insufferable there as Cheesecake factory - possibly even more.

I'm assuming that the event is also going to be held at the Gansevoort. If that's the case, I'd recommend cabbing it over to any restaurant that's not at the Gansevoort, Setai, or Shore Club (Nobu). South Beach is small, but not all that walkable.

There's a steakhouse in the Gansevoort that's really popular right now called STK, and up the street from the Gansevoort is the Fontainbleau where they have Hakkasan (great), Gotham Steak (meh), and Scarpetta (really good). A warning - all of those places at Gansevoort, Shore Club, Setai, and Fontainbleau off Collins Ave. are really pricey.

For something more reasonable, I'd recommend cabbing to Lincoln Road. There are tons of restaurants that have pretty much any cuisine you could look for short of Greek or Indian.

Burger and Beer Joint is IMHO the best burger joint down here, hands down, although I've been told that 5 Napkin Burger on Lincoln Road is better. But, again, B&B gets packed and there could be a wait.
