Hi Ben!

I guess it's been a long day, since if this is a joke, I'm not getting it. Unless you have me mixed up with someone else?

I went with you to Antarctica, as did my wife the doctor and aspiring photographer. Hopefully that should jog your memory, unless you've bumped into the ceiling one too many times.

Google “Ben’s wife doctor”
Must’ve been a very long day

Thanks for the explanation. Even if it wasn't a long day, I'm no expert in Ben Shapiro references, and simply mentioned my wife's profession as an explanation for how she got a free ticket to the Super Bowl as a healthcare worker.

But a non existent kosher scene is a major drawback for potential pioneers.

Depends how pioneering they are. Between local supermarkets (if OU products will suffice), driving a few hours (or a few more than a few) for the nearest Kosher supermarket, and refrigerating/freezing dairy/meat, you get by until you have enough of your own market for a small grocery.

I know heimeshe people who have ordered from supermarkets in the new York area and had it shipped down south. You'd be surprised how easy it is to get food. The same truck that will deliver to Miami, can make a stop in Tampa on the way down.

There's a Winn Dixie in Tampa that has a very decent kosher section with cholov yisroel milk and products. Similar to what the Orlando Winn Dixie had until this summer. Then the Orlando one did a huge expansion of their kosher section due to the very large influx of visitors. So if the Tampa one isn't good enough, the one in Orlando is around 1+ hrs away.

Google “Ben’s wife doctor”
There's a famous joke about this.

Ben Shapiro is 60 years old and he's confirmed as the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court. At the swearing-in ceremony, his 95-year-old Jewish mother is sitting in the audience. She leans over to the stranger sitting near her and points to her son standing at the podium.

"You see that man becoming the Chief Justice?" she whispers with pride. "That's my son. and his wife is a doctor!"

Hard to imagine Jewish vacation rentals in TPA taking off anytime soon. People flock to MIA due to the food scene.
CUN's food scene is far more robust than TPA.

Don't make decisions based on global warming. Imagine if the Waldorf did that and didn't build in MLE because they've been saying for decades that it will disappear.

And there will be a lot more money spent to save MIA than random MLE islands.

Boynton Beach is where everyone should invest now. It's going to explode in a few years. Similarly to Boca Raton.
Needs restaurants, bit of a chicken or the egg situation.
But I agree, should be a good investment location.

If we're comparing it to Boca, the food situation in Boca is still abysmal. Hasn't stopped the real estate from blowing up.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

Boca may not have high quality places, but they have plenty of places to eat. High quality comes with time and demand.
