Today marks our second to last Monday here at Bilzin Sumberg and we cannot believe our time as summer associates is ending. Yesterday the summer associates were in for a treat! A fishing trip with our very own expert fisherman, Mitch Widom. We all met at the firm on a beautiful Sunday morning not knowing just how tired and tan (or sunburnt) we would be coming back. On the way to Isla Morada we enjoyed the famous La Spadas subs, fantastic margaritas by Mitch, and some ocean tales of wisdom by Jose.
Once we arrived it was game time. We arranged prizes for both most number of fish caught and largest fish caught and after a quick tutorial we were ready to fish. Our first and second locations were not too great for many people… except for Jenny who was able to catch the biggest fish of the day and take the cash prize home! We moved on to our third location and suddenly it seemed like all of us were shouting “fish on!” The third location was definitely the best (my unbiased opinion after catching 6 fish in the same spot).
We finished our day at Snapper’s where we had some delicious appetizers and entrees. The group’s favorite was the hog-fish, a great recommendation by Mitch. The summer associates had a lot of fun and we all agreed it was a great way to spend the day and get to know the attorneys at the firm in a more casual setting. After dinner we jumped on the bus and headed back to Miami while our driver played some great music along the way, everything from James Taylor to Justin Bieber!
