Clearly, father of the year Jose Manuel Arguelles is an avid Thrillist reader, and just wanted to get his daughter and her friends some good pizza, right? Good pizza, and cocaine apparently, as Arguelles was arrested on charges of child neglect, promoting sexual performance by a child, and delivering controlled substances to a child after it was discovered he brought his 16-year-old daughter and her 17-year-old friend to the Pink Pony to, well, do blow with strippers. Repeatedly. When the girl’s mother discovered pictures of said drinking, coke consumption, and cocaine on the girl’s cell phone, she brought charges against the father. Police alleged there were allegations of “underage activity" going on at the club, but did not elaborate.
In all fairness, “poverty” is a pretty relative term. At least it is if you’re a major South Florida developer who’s donated $45,000 to Homestead City commissioners. Shell out that tidy sum and all of a sudden your plan to improve a golf course in the middle of your high-end home development immediately qualifies for $3.5 million in HUD funds that was earmarked for run-down areas and “Greenways.” Taking that second part a little too literally, the Homestead City Commission voted 4-2 to fund Wayne Rosen’s golf course improvement at Keys Gate.
