welcome to miami 1980

if you're in the mood for an interesting and OUTRAGEOUS read about the cocaine scene in 1980's miami check out this article, Cocaine and Me: A Memoir. it gives a fairly candid account of the scene at the Mutiny Hotel. you may have seen the 2006 documentary "Cocaine Cowboys" which tells the story of Miami's rise to infamy as the drug capital of the USA.

the "Mutiny Club" was the hangout for a lot of Miami's drug elites; entry to the club required membership. the membership cards were brass with an eye-patched pirate logo for entry. the entire story has inspired the design of a line of tshirts with the proceeding designs on them. you can select the colors and purchase them here
