Christmas on Las Olas & the Winterfest Ball

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I have had the most exciting week attending 2 of Fort Lauderdale's best holiday events!

Pastrami with Fran at the Soda Shop

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Today I decided to "cheat" on Chef Phil by not eating in Acquario and instead go into the Soda Shop with Fran, who has been part of our Lago Mar family for 14 years. When I sat down at the beautiful countertop, which is granite and looks like the color of the ocean, Fran greeted me and told me I HAD to order the Pacific Pastrami Sandwich. Not only did she make me order the sandwich, she ...

A Group Meal and Glow Sticks

Hi! I had an amazing time at the resort Friday night. A group of us went over for some cocktails at The Promenade Bar and then dinner on the Sea Grape Terrace. While the adults were socializing and listening to our wonderful guitarist on the lagoon island, the kids were playing on the playground and meeting friends. At one point Demi asked me if she could buy a round of virgin pina coladas for her new friends. We know she definitely has the ...

Hi! I absolutely love the new Lago Mar shirts we just got in. They’re more lightweight than our previous design and are perfect for the gorgeous weather we’ve been having.
