What's It Like To Run an Historic Hotel on Miami Beach?


Well, sometimes it goes down like this:
In December 2011, fifteen police offers, ten code enforcement officers (including Alberto), and five fire officials forcibly shut down the Sadigo a second time for violations of City fire codes. (See id. ¶ 42). The shut down occurred while the Sadigo was hosting the “Poo[l] Art Fair” during the Art Basel Miami Beach art show, forcing guests to vacate the premises. (Id. ¶¶ 42–43). Alberto offered to solve Eisenberg’s problems “by using ‘his people,’ insinuating a bribe would be due from [] Eisenberg. When [] Eisenberg refused by stating he already had legal counsel working on it, Alberto stated . . . Eisenberg would not get far using legal means.” (Id. ¶ 44). Eisenberg was then arrested. (See id. ¶ 45). In April 2012, Alberto and other code compliance officers and fire department inspectors were arrested for accepting bribes. (See id. ¶ 46). Since these arrests, the Sadigo has not received any further code compliance notices or violations. (See id. ¶ 47).

  1. Bribery? Code violations? What about the sex, drugs, prostitutes, embezzling, and farm animals? Those are real scandals of Miami Beach hotels.

  9. I don't censor arguments. I censor THE jackass who cannot debate his points because his bigotry has no place in this age. All he has are personal attacks and they are of neither value nor consequence.
