Changes in nature are always dramatic although oftentimes subtle; in South Florida we begin to see lush colors emerging as we enjoy our seasonal changes. 

And speaking of change… SOMI XV ushered in big changes in the magazine and thanks for all the most favorable comments. “Crisp,” “sophisticated,” “novel” are some of the comments.  And folks really liked the new square “coffee table” size! 

Spring is also a great time for cycling in South Florida.  As part of our multi-modality life style, there are some great cycling initiatives happening: The Underline, the development of a ten mile linear park under the Metrorail; The Ludlam Trail, a rails-to-trails project on the abandoned FEC Corridor and BIKE 305.  This is all about encouraging a healthy lifestyle and transportation alternatives.

In this issue, you’ll read about a new development happening at US1 & Sunset at the Metrorail Station. We start two new fashion articles.  In addition to the popular Fashion Runway articles written by SOMI fashion guru Giancarlo, we now will have an article about men’s fashion and we introduce our “Fav Five” for this Spring edition.  I hope you like it.

In closing, welcome to our new businesses which have recently opened in town.  We have a new bistro on Sunset East” (of Red Road), a new life sustainable market and other business happenings in town. Read more in our What’s New in Town feature, found on page 36.

Please let us know what you think about your SOMI shopping/dining experience and how it can always be improved.  And let me know about your take on the all new SOMI Magazine

Enjoy the spring, and spring into SOMI.  It’s SHOP SMALL IN SOMI all year ‘round – support your locally owned businesses.
