Halloween & FLIBS

During the last week there has been a whirlwind of activity at Lago Mar. We had so much fun celebrating Halloween with our guests and having many of the Boat Show attendees in residence. Plus the weather has been absolutely perfect! Halloween at Lago Mar was very festive. On the front desk, we had a scary yet beautiful Jack-O-Lantern on display, as well as plenty of candy for trick-or-treaters. The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show just ended and it was a huge ...

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! I personally love S3 because of the sharable items and the island-chic decor. I also really ...

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 ...

We had the Rock Shrimp Mac and Cheese and the Calamari, which is served with tomato sauce, lemon-lime cilantro ...

Cirque Du Soleil’s Quidam – Mesmerizing

Thursday night I accepted an amazing invitation from a very generous family for me and the kids to sit in a skybox and watch Cirque Du Soleil's Quidam at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL. It was absolutely one of the best nights ever. The show was beautiful and the kids, as well as adults, were mesmerized by the strength and flexibility of the performers! I love living in Fort Lauderdale and being able to see shows like Quidam! Deb

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 ...
