#FritaCrawl Read All About It

El Rey de las Fritas

When my friend Matt Meltzer asked me what I thought about doing a Frita Cubana Crawl with Thrillist Miami I said yes without any hesitation. I had done two Frita Crawls, one near the beginning of the Burger Beast Blog in 2009 with Miami New Times & Carlos Miller and one a few years later with Travel Channel’s George Motz. I thought this one needed to be different so I called up my pals at Magic City Casino who graciously allowed us to use one of their shuttle buses for the Frita Crawl. After a few more phone calls here and there we had Luis Galindo’s Latin American, El Mago De Las Fritas, and El Rey De Las Fritas lined up as stops. It didn’t end there. We capped off the Frita Crawl at Azucar Ice Cream Company. Plus everyone also received a “Free Frita” coupon courtesy of Cuban Guys in Hialeah. A great but filling Frita Crawl for all!

How exactly do you get invited to something like this? Twitter. Both Thrillist Miami and I tweeted that we were looking for some folks to be a part of a Frita Crawl a fews days before. We also reached out to some folks and others wrote us once they saw what was going on. The lesson learned is it pays to be vigilant in Social Media.
