Emojis on Clematis Street

Recent improvements in the 300 block of Clematis street included expanded sidewalk space, addition of shade trees and more narrow traffic lanes, among others. The enhancement of the street also brought to life big spheres sitting at the corners of the block, which ‘unintentionally’ seemed to have been turned into emojis for a few days—they have since been restored, 😊.

A passion for cooking

Rolando Anoceto has recently been named executive chef at City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill in Rosemary Square. His dishes are imbued with global flavors and a certain je ne sais quoi that reflect his love for travel and a lifelong ethos that food should be fun and lighthearted.

City Cellar’s pan-seared Alaskan Halibut

Talking about food, here’s how the new pan-seared Alaskan Halibut in City Cellar’s menu looks like. Such a delish. The Wild Alaskan Halibut is delicate and flaky, and is an elegant versatile entree. This dish is a mouthwatering seafood option for every taste.

A classic cocktail for these hot summer days

A mojito is ultra refreshing and beautiful; the summer cocktail everybody loves! And as everybody knows, Cuba is the birthplace of the Mojito, but you don’t have to travel that far for a taste of the authentic drink. This one was prepared at Don Ramon Restaurante & Social Club on 7101 S Dixie Hwy.

Total strangers but camera-friendly

The Pamela and Robert B. Goergen Garden at the Norton Museum of Art has abundant trees and plantings in different sections arranged axially across the main building. And also, lots of sculptures, like these three by Antony Gormley called “Total Strangers.” These three cast-iron, life-size human figures facing in opposite directions on the lawn are very ‘camera-friendly’. By the way, here are 12 reasons to visit the museum this week.

Days good to “bask in the sun,” but not in the water

The gorgeous scenic views of the Town of Palm Beach keep deteriorating with so much seaweed coming ashore on the beach. Could this algal explosion in the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea signify a new normal for us? The problem is these sargassums keep inundating our beaches, causing an environmental and ‘health’ nuisance.
