Another Great July 4th at Lago Mar

Hi! It was another great July 4th at Lago Mar. Last night was so much fun! The weather was so perfect all day and throughout the evening until right after the fireworks, when it began to rain... perfect timing. I took my kids over in our golf cart, which was very festive looking... and we had an awesome dinner at Acquario. Chef Phil really outdid himself last night with an incredible buffet. I heard lots of members and guests commenting ...

Menu Pick: Veg. Chimichurri Portabella Burger

Hi! I just came from lunch and I got to try out the new menu in the Palm Garden Room. I chose the Vegetarian Chimichurri Portabella Burger, a brand new dish added to the menu. OMG! It was so good and still very healthy! I loved the combination of the portabella with the squash, roasted red pepper, and avocado on the multi-grain ciabatta. Even though I am not a vegetarian, I am a big fan of having a variety meat-free ...

One of my kids tried the Hanger Steak & Caprese Salad which has tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, blue cheese, tomato vinaigrette, blackberry ...

My kids are out of school for the summer, so I plan to spend a lot of time at the resort with them. It is pretty cool that my kids chose not to do any ...

Las Olas Wine & Food Festival: Awesome

Hi! Last weekend was so exciting in our great city! Friday night was the Las Olas Wine and Food Festival, which I attended with one of my girlfriends.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival

Hi! Yesterday I took the kids to the St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival on Las Olas and we had a great time! The parade began promptly at noon and there was so much to see. There were several floats that were really neat with lots of decorations. My girls enjoyed seeing the Miss America contestants, all from different counties around Florida, riding in antique cars. There were fire trucks and there was even a Swat vehicle that looked liked a ...

Valentine’s Day Specials & Wi-Fi Upgrades

Hi! Not only am I still hearing great reviews about the Valentine's Day Specials Chef Phil offered in Acquario last week but there's also exciting news about Wi-Fi at the resort.

The beef tenderloin dish was served with bourbon glaze onion marmalade and pale sweet mashed potatoes. My favorite Valentine's Day Special was the olive oil poached ...
