Tropical Storm Watch Issued for South Florida as Potential Tropical Cyclone One Forms

A Tropical Storm Watch was issued for South Florida as Potential Tropical Cyclone One formed Thursday evening, according to ...

Meanwhile life goes on in South Florida!

1) The two wolves on the June calendar welcome you to summer, the rainy & hurricane seasons, in Fort Lauderdale!!!

2) The Gateway Theatre was recently taken over by new owners and started a GoFundMe page to spruce it up a bit. The first picture was a year ago and the second today's lobby-a lot more to come. Here's more of the history of The Classic Gateway:
"The Gateway Theatre opened March 24, 1951 with the world premiere of “Up Front” starring David Wayne. It was operated by Wometco Theatres as a single screen venue with 1,500 seats, all on a single floor. The theatre had its own 500-car paved parking lot. Sunrise Cinemas later operated the the theatre and had converted it to a fourplex.
The World premiere of "Where The Boys Are" took place here in 1960 which is where I saw it before I moved back to New York.
It runs the latest in fine art, foreign and independent films. It is noted as one of Fort Lauderdale’s landmark theatres."

3) And then what's life without food? That is why the Quarterdeck is here! I have been going there for over 20 years and just last week had the BEST jambalaya ever and I have been recommending it there for years but this was pure heaven.

Well if the electricity and power doesn't go off with the 8 inches of rain expected I'll see you tomorrow!

Martin...have you heard from Mike today. He was sick and with all the stress he has had from Fredo['s death, I worry about him. He has been tested for covid 5 times and it comes out negative. I am on this site every day so a message would be great. If you don't lose power.

I hear from him about 2-3 times a week---nothing the last couple of days--if I do I'll let you know!

I don't keep close track of the restaurants you tell us about, but I think the Quarterdeck would be my favorite.
