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! Last Tuesday was Christmas on Las Olas and it was so much fun! My boyfriend and I had dinner at Lobster Bar Sea Grille with some friends and tasted some of the most delicious seafood we have ever had. I had the octopus, which was to die for, and the kale salad with cranberries and apples. He raved about the fresh stone crabs he ordered. ...

Full Moon Party at S3 gets a rave review

Hi! I had a great time at S3's Full Moon Party the other night! S3 stands for Sun Surf Sand. It is an amazing new restaurant on AIA, about 5 minutes from Lago Mar, with spectacular views of the ocean! They really went all out for their Full Moon Party.  There was sushi placed on top of a beautiful maiden, fire dancers and a hula show! What a night!

Grouper, Key Lime Pie & Tennis Success

Hi! Over the weekend I had the most delicious dinner at Acquario with some of Demi's tennis friends and their parents! I tried Chef Phil's Special that night, which was pan flashed grouper with ginger tomato jam and sweet plantain coconut risotto. It was incredible! Then, for dessert, I tried the Key Lime Pie, a South Florida staple. Ours though, at least in my opinion, is the best in the world! On a totally separate subject, Demi placed 4th in the main draw of ...
