  • Reading & Eating at Ortanique
    Aug 25, 2013 - 6:00pm to Aug 25, 2013 - 6:00pm
    Ortanique on the Mile
    278 Miracle Mile

    Join Ortanique on the Mile for their next Reading & Eating book club featuring the novel “Bad Monkey.” Cindy Hutson has decided to combine her love for reading and cooking into a can’t miss event. She will be creating a menu that will reflect the novel.SYNOPSIS:

    Andrew Yancy-late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office-has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first-this being Hiaasen country-Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters, including his just-ex lover, a hot-blooded fugitive from Kansas; the twitchy widow of the frozen arm; two avariciously optimistic real-estate speculators; the Bahamian voodoo witch known as the Dragon Queen, whose suitors are blinded unto death by her peculiar charms; Yancy’s new true love, a kinky coroner; and the eponymous bad monkey, who with hilarious aplomb earns his place among Carl Hiaasen’s greatest characters. Here is Hiaasen doing what he does better than anyone else: spinning a tale at once fiercely pointed and wickedly funny in which the greedy, the corrupt, and the degraders of what’s left of pristine Florida-now, of the Bahamas as well-get their comeuppance in mordantly ingenious, diabolically entertaining fashion.

    The evening will start with a brief Sparkling reception, followed by a tasting menu filled with Cindy’s tantalizing creations. Space is limited to a 24 person max, so don’t miss your opportunity to discuss the hottest books of the season and have a delicious meal at the same time.

    For more information please contact Ashley at 305-446-7710 or email her at [email protected] for details and pricing.
