On Stage: Let Them Eat Cake

 

SunFest lights up with Steve Aoki’s brand of entertainment: dancing, crowd surfing and flying confections

Steve Aoki can’t actually be human; the 38-year-old DJ, electro house musician, record producer and music executive must be running on some endless supply of adrenaline as he moves through this world in a blur of constant motion. And forget about his onstage energy – that’s another story.  More…


On Stage: Making Faces Brings Smiles and Meaning to its Fans

 

Just about any local band would be thrilled to find out it has been invited to open for a national act at SunFest. But sometimes it’s what happens after a big-stage performance that brings even more excitement. Such was the case with the band Making Faces.

It just so happened that a woman from Hunan, China – who was connected with the cultural council there – was in the audience the day the West Palm Beach-based band opened for Barenaked Ladies at SunFest 2013. Afterwards, she approached the band members and told them they were her favorite act. Then she told them she’d like them to perform during the Zhangjiajie International Country Music Week in China, where the movie Avatar was filmed. Here they would perform alongside dozens of international groups representing various countries. More…


On Stage: Florida Gets Weird

 

Circle it on the calendar, folks! On June 4, 2016, the beloved, odd phenomenon that is Weird Al Yankovic will be coming to West Palm Beach.

Weird Al and his band hit over 100 cities last year, including West Palm Beach, and the 2016 recap will add another whopping 76 stops from June through September. More…


Travel: The Pink Palace – Loews Don CeSar Hotel is as historic as it is inviting

 

It is a mere three hour and 45 minute temperate drive from the high-society playground of Palm Beach to the Pink Palace, the Loews Don CeSar Hotel, which has dominated the shoreline of St. Pete Beach on Florida’s Gulf Coast since 1928.

The Don CeSar began as an architectural and entertainment opus to the sights and sounds of the Roaring Twenties. The Don’s doors have swung open widely for nearly a century, welcoming Hollywood stars and starlets, famed captains of industry as well as infamous rogues and entrepreneurs; all celebrants of a bygone era, brought to life by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, “The Great Gatsby.”

Dr. Civin - Palm Beach Gardens Cosmetic Dentist

The wining and dining whirlwind at Legacy Place, a celebration of the eighth annual Fork and Cork, which benefited Little Smiles, was held under an early April cloudless blue sky, mirroring the clarity and sense of purpose that Little Smiles of Florida imbues in its mission to help children and their families. The nonprofit Little Smiles was founded in Florida in 1999 as an organization inspired by a pediatric cancer patient’s wish that the other children in her ward would be able to share toys and videos; anything to make their stay as comfortable as possible. That child’s desire and the vision of Little Smiles’ founder, Paul L. Donohue Jr., now guide an organization that directly assists thousands of children and young adults in hospitals, hospices and in their homes. The founder’s goal of Little Smiles was simply stated and has remained its true north; “Little Smiles’ mission is to help kids escape the reality of their unfortunate circumstance…our main goal is to put a smile back on their [children] faces…and provide whatever we can to make a child’s day a little brighter.” And they do it with a cadre of dedicated volunteers and generous community philanthropy.

Nearly every kid that attends a Palm Beach County school has made that field trip – traveling back in time to learn about our history at Yesteryear Village – and now the beloved attraction will be open year round.

“The mission of the Village is to promote and preserve early Florida life,” said Paige Poole, Yesteryear Village manager. “Authentic buildings and structures from days gone by can be visited and include an old school, a farm, a blacksmith shop, a general store and other buildings where collections and artifacts are on display. We hope our visitors will gain an understanding of our history and heritage right in our own back yard.” More…


After five years into his professional accounting career, Dr. Joseph C. Taub, DPM, knew that being a public accountant is not what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. With the introduction to podiatry from his college sweetheart’s father, Dr. Taub decided he was ready for a change. In 1988 he graduated from Temple College of the Podiatric Medicine. Now, after 25 years, he loves his practice and his patients.

“It’s a career I have greatly enjoyed and the patient population on the Treasure Coast is very appreciative and easy to work with and treat,” said Dr. Taub. More…


I had a college internship working at a radio station. I remember the general manager explaining to me that something was going to revolutionize the music industry in the coming year and change the way my generation listened and responded to music. I spent the better part of my sophomore year planted in front of the television at my friend’s apartment proving him right. The phenomenon called MTV was born. More…


Not sure the last time you went shopping for a greeting card but it had been a while for me. After all, who actually gives or sends real paper cards when there is a window on your Facebook page where you can copy and paste clever copy, an image of a cake exploding with too many candles or some touchy, feely poetry without ever crawling out of your pajamas and can send a message for free? We’ll get to the Facebook portion of this discussion a little further down. For the moment I want to focus on the greeting card industry; an industry that refuses to die regardless of how much free content exists at our fingertips. More…
