Local Lady We Love, and Where to Find Her
Meet Lindsey Snell, reality TV producer and Florida girl who braved Everglades City to make Square Grouper, MIA to make Airport 24/7, and Tolbert Bain to make The U. She also endured a burning needle to get a big tattoo of the state.
When it’s not SEC football season, you can find this single-malt connoisseur of a UF alum at Gramps in Wynwood, Take 1 in North Miami, and of course, Mac’s Club Deuce. She's a vegan, but would “never [date for a really, really short time]* a guy who doesn’t eat meat”, although he'd have to sneak it into her favorite spot, Choices Café.
