There won't be a Listica next week due to the 4th of July celebration and my birthday. Back in 2 weeks.
Best Beach Destinations in the United States
(Other than Florida)
Hilton Head, SC
The gorgeous views that Hilton Head offers year-round can only be improved upon by the fabulous facilities and free parking found at Coligny Beach. It's a fun and convenient destination for the entire family, even small children.
Sleeping Bear Dunes in Michigan
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is a hidden gem in Empire, Michigan. It's not your typical beach as it lies on the shores of Lake Michigan. Yet, the sugary sand and tranquility of this unexpected haven rivals that of most conventional beaches.
Just a stone's throw from Boston, the quiet, clean and spacious beaches of Provincetown offer the perfect spot for a romantic picnic. Various sea creatures such as whales can frequently be spotted from your comfy spot in the sand, so bring your binoculars.
Santa Barbara, CA
Santa Barbara has so many beaches to choose from that you could pick a different one each day of the week. Each beach also offers something unique to sun-worshipers as one may be suitable for a nice sandy jog with Fido while another is great for working on your tan and striking up a conversation with surfers.
At the tip of Long Island, the beaches of Montauk offer a more laid-back atmosphere than those of its Hamptons counterparts. You can camp in an RV at Gin Beach, and be there for the breathtaking sunrise over an empty shoreline
Virginia Beach, VA
Home to a Naval Air Station, you might expect the beaches of Virginia Beach to be a prime party spot. But, the beaches are actually a great fit for families, couples, and singles. Dunes offer privacy and seclusion, and the lack of crowds allows for some relaxation. And, who knows? Single ladies might meet an "officer and gentleman" while lounging on the sand.
Within walking distance of town, Kennebunk Beach is a somewhat small, but gorgeous place to take the entire family. The beach becomes a bit more lively during the peak summer months, but you can't beat the comfortable temperatures of the Maine coastline.

Houston's ahora se llama Hillstone, pero todo el mundo sigue diciendole Houston's.
Ahora que estuvimos en Miami fuimos, como vamos siempre, a la barra de Houston's en Miracle Mile...por la noche como a las 7:00 PM... Déjame decirte que la gente está súper elegante, Y la gente joven que abunda de lo más bonitas, con sus 'fake boobs' y todo... Te ponen servilleta de tela en el puesto y Jorge y yo pedimos 'gin & tonics' en copa de vino tinto... Después pedimos una orden de 'cheese toast' y de 'shoestring potatoes'... Al rato pedimos el 'traditional salad, dressing on the side'. Igual que tú comemos en plato de postre... O sea que no pedimos más nada... Try it sometimes... Tiene que ser en la barra y a la hora de la comida....para que tenga el sabor que te describo. Try the bar... Forget the tables... They are dark & quiet!!!
Nosotros hemos he ido a almorzar y a comer a Houston's unas cuantas veces, pero nunca nos habiamos sentado en la barra. We're gonna try it now that Alicita recommended it. Sounds like fun.
La Guayabera, a Shirt's Story
101 West Flagler St.
June 29 - Jan. 13 2013
From humble beginnings to fashion phenomenom the new History Miami Exhibition tells the story of the Guayabera.
The Guayabera: A Shirt's Story, on view at the Museum of HistoryMiami from June 29, 2012 through January 13, 2013, will address the guayabera's history from its nineteenth century origins to the present day. A traditional piece of menswear, the guayabera is arguably the best-known piece of clothing worn by Latin American and Caribbean populations worldwide.
The guayabera is distinguished by its four pockets and vertical stripes of pleating and/or embroidery. Although the precise birthplace of the garment is uncertain, historical evidence suggests that the shirt emerged in Cuba. Also referred to as a 'Mexican wedding shirt,' the garment is popular in Mexico and the American states to its north. The exhibition will trace the shirt's journey through Cuba, Mexico and the United States, where it is particularly popular in Miami, Los Angeles, New York City and Houston, cities that boast large Latin American and Caribbean populations.
The 700-square foot exhibition will feature historic and contemporary versions of the garment. On display will be Cuban and Spanish military uniforms of the late 19th century, a classic version of the shirt sold by Cuban department store El Encanto during the mid-twentieth century, the garment's heyday in Cuba, and Mexican-produced versions, including one worn by former Mexican President Luis Echeverría, that capture the migration of the shirt's production to the Yucatan Peninsula after the Cuban Revolution of 1959. The exhibition will also feature guayaberas made by an array of contemporary designers including Cubavera®, a brand of Perry Ellis International, headquartered in Miami; Arcadio Diaz, a Dominican-born designer who specializes in women's clothing; and Miami-based Berta Bravo, also known as 'The Guayabera Lady.' Also on display will be a custom-made guayabera dress worn by Grammy© Award winning recording art ist and the 'Queen of Salsa' Celia Cruz and a late 1940s guayabera crafted by tailor Ramón Puig. s.

Spanish Cave Art
Prehistoric dots and crimson hand stencils on Spanish cave walls are now the world's oldest known cave art, according to new dating results—perhaps the best evidence yet that Neanderthals were Earth's first cave painters.
If that's the case, the discovery narrows the cultural distance between us and Neanderthals—and fuels the argument, at least for one scientist, that the heavy-browed humans were not a separate species but only another race.
Of the 11 subterranean sites the team studied along northern Spain's Cantabrian Sea coast, the cave called El Castillo had the oldest paintings—the oldest being a simple red disk.
At more than 40,800 years old, 'this is currently Europe's oldest dated art by at least 4,000 years,' said the study's lead author Alistair Pike, an archaeologist at the University of Bristol in the U.K.
If the new dates are correct, they also could make the El Castillo art the oldest known well-dated cave paintings in the world—a title previously held by France's Chauvet cave paintings (pictures), believed to be at least 37,000 years old.
In several cases, the Spanish artwork proved older than previously estimated based on indirect methods, such as stylistic comparisons with paintings at better dated sites, according to the study, published by the journal Science.
