Things that make you go hmmmmm

Grand Avenue has been closed off to meter parking since Friday night. As you can see here, the "no parking" signs are up, blocking access. A film company, maybe a commercial, maybe Burn Notice, since they filmed in the same office building at Mayfair before, needed the street parking for a couple of hours' worth of filming. After they left, the signs stayed up.

I think about 15 spots are affected by this. As you drive up the Mary Street hill, from S. Bayshore Drive, the Mayfair side of the street has parking blocked from that corner up to Johnny's sunglasses booth, and maybe a little further up from that.

This drives people away. They can't find parking as it is on a normal day, now on a weekend the spots are blocked Friday night, all day and night on Saturday and so far all Sunday morning. What's up with that?

And if it was for Burn Notice, there is some sort of poetic justice there.

The fire department blocked off the parking on Friday in order to cunduct an actual fire drill. We had to vacate our offices for 10 minutes.

Of course, the City of Miami takes a long time to do things, so the No Parking signs were just taken down Sunday morning.
