Tennis News and Court Updates

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I am so excited to share some pictures of our newly resurfaced tennis courts on the beach. Demi, my oldest and one of the two tennis stars in the family, has unofficially been given the title of "Director of Tennis Renovations at Lago Mar" by my Dad. She takes this job very seriously and if any changes have been made to the courts without her approval she is very upset! On the subject of ...

Saturday Night at Lago Mar

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying their summers. We certainly are! Saturday night we went over to Lago Mar late afternoon, my favorite part of the day, to swim and have an early dinner. Also on the agenda was for the kids to try out the new monkey bars on the playground. As you can see by the picture they definitely had a lot of fun and gave them the thumbs up! We love going over ...

Throwback Thursday Before I was Born

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Happy Throwback Thursday to everyone! I wanted to share this picture of my parents standing in the original lobby of Lago Mar a little over 48 years ago. They were actually on their way to Broward General Hospital, where my mom would give birth to me later that day! No one can believe she was 9 months pregnant in that picture but she was. Also, they were at the front desk to cash a check for $150.00 ...

SitInMySeats and Katy Perry

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I can't believe that  Katy Perry will be performing at the BB&T Center tomorrow. We are so lucky to have such a beautiful venue, always featuring great performers, in our area! The last event I attended there was Jingle Ball last December and it was spectacular! I purchased VIP tickets from SitInMySeats, and we were given the fifth row from the stage on the floor.  My girls went crazy when they found out. I think ...

Beautiful Saturday at the Beach

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I wanted to share a picture of how beautiful the ocean was Saturday morning! The kids and I went over to Acquario for the breakfast buffet and feasted on Chef Henry's delicious Mickey Mouse pancakes. Over the summer the girls play at a tennis academy for 5 hours each day so they have quite the appetite! In addition to the pancakes they had bacon, sausage, and each had their own special omelet made perfectly by ...

National Bourbon Day

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Today, June 14, is National Bourbon Day! To help you celebrate, we wanted to share with you three delicious, bourbon filled cocktails you can make at home. A little bourbon history before you start drinking: As it turns out, today also the 225rd “anniversary of the day that the Rev. Elijah Craig first distilled whiskey from corn in Bourbon County, Kentucky. (Elijah Craig’s name lives on as a premium bourbon brand from Heaven Hill.) In 1964, ...

Lago Mar’s Connection to the Military

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Since this month is National Military Appreciation Month, I decided to blog about Lago Mar's connection to the military! My own personal connection is my membership in the Tiffany Circle of the Red Cross. Tiffany circle members are philanthropists who contribute $10,000 annually to their local Red Cross. Each year we have a summit in Washington D.C. and last year I had the privilege to meet and have my picture taken with one of the Seal Team ...

Mother’s Day Weekend in Fort Lauderdale

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! I definitely had the best Mother's Day weekend ever!

Friday evening, my parents took my boyfriend and I to The New Shooters Waterfront for dinner to celebrate Mother's Day with just adults. They have truly done ...
