This year, Food Love 2 Go is spreading the love with more than just their desayunos sorpresas (surprise breakfasts), they are also creating red-themed floral arrangements with that tropical touch Miami is known for.

Food Love 2 Go is offering some special Valentine’s Day displays to start the day right.

Who wants to treat their special chikkibaby to this kind of breakfast in bed?

Food Love 2 Go was originally started on Valentine’s Day in 2015 by Venezuelan entrepreneur Andrea Zerpa.

The company’s busiest days are Valentine’s Day, obviously, as well as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. The idea of gifting someone breakfast in bed is good for multiple reasons. Mainly, it’s because you don’t create a mess to make the breakfast in bed so that’s a plus.

Zerpa did put the business on hold for a couple years before really pushing the band out in the Miami area.

After taking a hiatus for a couple of years, Zerpa relaunched the brand in 2017 and the orders have been coming in for deliveries from Homestead on the south tip of Miami-Dade County to Boca Raton in Palm Beach County.

“My inspiration was to gift happiness and love through a sweet detail like breakfast in bed or a surprise breakfast,” Zerpa says.

Miami Marlins Covid Outbreak Causes Chaos Of MLB Season After One Weekend

An outbreak of Covid among MLB players and coaches has postponed the highly anticipated and very hyped return of the season. It took less than a week since the sport came back for there to be a viral outbreak within the league.

The Miami Marlins are dealing with a Covid outbreak within the team before their opening games.

Half of the players for the Miami Marlins are positive for Covid-19 before the home opener against the Baltimore Orioles. The Marlins’ season has been paused through the weekend and the lineup was changed up to make sure the season can continue.

“Obviously, we don’t want any player to get exposed. It’s not a positive thing,” Commissioner Rob Manfred said Monday night on the MLB Network. “But I don’t see it as a nightmare.” He continued: “We think we can keep people safe and continue to play.”

Phillies Outfielder Andrew McCutchen took to Twitter to vent his frustration about MLB communication.

Apparently, McCutchen didn’t know that the Phillies game against the New York Yankees Tuesday was canceled until getting on Twitter. The weekend schedule was thrown into turmoil after news broke about the outbreak on the Miami Marlins. The outbreak comes as some have criticized the MLB for not trying a bubble conference, like the NBA and NHL.

Other teams in the league are showing their own discomfort with the current situation.

The Nationals were supposed to play in Miami this weekend but the surge in Covid cases in Florida put an end to that. The Washington Nationals voted to postpone and the MLB followed their lead and canceled that series.

In a statement by the MLB, the Miami Marlins are the only confirmed team to have a Covid outbreak. The league recently conducted 6,400 tests among players and coaches and haven’t found other outbreaks on the remaining 29 teams.

Miami Is The New Epicenter For COVID-19 In The US

It is no mystery that COVID-19 continues to ravage the United States. The country is averaging more than 60,000 cases a day while most countries have controlled their virus and are starting to return to a form of normal. In Florida, a state that has resisted measures to slow the spread, Miami has become the new epicenter with surging cases and hospitalization rates.

Medical professionals are calling for Florida to do what needs to be done to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Miami, a heavily Latino city, is seeing the worst of the pandemic since the virus came to the U.S. in March. Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has stayed defiant against health guidelines and spent months downplaying the true severity of the virus. Now, one of the state’s largest cities is paying the price.

Doctors are comparing Miami’s outbreak to the outbreak first seen in Wuhan, China, the origin of the virus.

Part of the issue, according to various doctors, is that Florida’s reopening has led the way for the surge in cases. Mask mandates and other guidelines were slow to be implemented in the state and now Floridians are not taking the virus seriously.

“They have not adhered to guidelines,” Florida International University epidemiologist Dr. Aileen Marty said at an online press conference with Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez. “They have been in those closed spaces without taking the appropriate precautions, and that’s the main reason we are where we are.”

In response to people in the region disobeying guidelines, some businesses are being restricted.

Miami-Dade Mayor Gimenez implemented a curfew on restaurants because of the sudden spike in cases. The restriction was met with anger from various city mayors in Miami-Dade County who wish for Florida to remain open as hospitals run out of room for new patients.

“The medical experts cannot tell us that this increase comes from indoor dining,” J.C. Bermudez, the mayor of Doral, told Miami Herald. “Did it come from the protests [against police brutality]? Was it beaches? Are [people] on their boats?”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a health organization that specializes in tracking and studying diseases, disagrees. According to the CDC, being indoors at a restaurant is a risky thing to do because of the patrons not wearing face coverings to eat. This allows the virus to have a better chance of spreading.

Americans in other states just can’t make sense of Florida’s COVID-19 response.

Some of the mayors claim that closing the restaurants’ in-dining services is detrimental to the communities who need food. However, the restaurants are allowed to provide delivery and take out without limitation. This allows people to continue to get the food they need and want without further exposing themselves or others to the virus.
