Hurricane Tyra Black comes to Lago Mar

Hi! On Saturday Demi hosted one of her best friends, Hurricane Tyra Black (currently Top ranked under-12 player) for some tennis, swimming and, of course, lunch at Lago Mar! They had a blast! They were so sweet to also include Danielle all day. Of course, the moms had fun, too. We might have tried a margarita while we were watching the girls play! Deb

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 ...

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!

I heard lots of members and guests commenting ...

New Lilly Pulitzer Bag at The Resort Shop

Hi! I found the most beautiful bag in The Resort Shop yesterday that I just had to have! It looks a lot like Missoni but it's actually Lilly Pulitzer! I have received so many compliments already. I snapped  a picture of Amber modeling it before I took it for myself. Amber is a BIG part of the Lago Mar Family and has been for a long time - 14 years. She has worked in The Spa, as well as down on the ...

Acquario’s New Menu is a Huge Hit

Hi! I just wanted to get back to you about my awesome dinner in Acquario a few days ago. The kids and I had a great time trying a few of the new items on the menu. I ordered the Rock Shrimp Mac & Cheese and it was incredible! The combination of white cheddar, gruyere, and gorgonzola was so delicious. One of my kids tried the Hanger Steak & Caprese Salad which has tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, blue cheese, tomato vinaigrette, blackberry ...

Family Update: Where Do I Begin

Hi! I have taken some time off to settle some family issues but I am back better than ever! I'm going to try to write at least once a week and make sure all of you stay up to date on what's happening around the resort. 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 ...

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 ...
