Russell Provencial—Russ to his friends—sees Painting Plus South Florida’s residential and commercial painting projects as art. With this in mind, his painters prepare their palettes—whether by removing any mold or mildew from walls or by pressure washing house exteriors spotless—before applying the first brushstroke of paint. Customers can consult with designers to create customized wall and ceiling patterns, turning homes into living art pieces or life-size Where's Waldo? puzzles. Painting Plus South Florida rounds out its slate of services with specialty plastering work, home remodeling, and repairs.
Sports tend to bring together people of different tastes?on a football Sunday, a bar might have a group of Dolphins fans in one corner, and a Steelers Nation table in another. In that spirit, Marina84 Sports Bar & Grill welcomes everyone, broadcasting various NFL games on their 30 TVs thanks to a Sunday Ticket subscription. Some of those screens are personal TVs installed in booths, and on days when there's no football games, they could be showing anything from baseball to rugby. The local neighborhood hangout boasts a roster of handcrafted burgers nestled into homemade buns. The menu also offers a diverse range of dishes, including everything from steak fajitas and honey hot wings to avocado burgers and shrimp linguini made with fresh-caught seafood and freshly plucked noodles.

The Playground Gym’s 5,000-square-foot facility boasts ample space for CrossFit, a high-energy conditioning style used by military and law-enforcement personnel to achieve peak personal fitness. Although known for its intense strength-training tasks, CrossFit’s regimen is easily scalable for varying skill levels, challenging everyone from seasoned athletes and stay-at-home moms to senior citizens and seasoned athletes disguised as stay-at-home moms. The On-Ramp program enlightens all newbies to the sport and kicks-off with a fitness assessment to set a baseline when charting one’s progress. On-Ramp sessions also allow newcomers to perfect their technique while performing such CrossFit staples as Olympic and barbell lifts, kettle-bell training, basic gymnastics, and running. After a duo of sessions, exercisers graduate to regular-level CrossFit classes, which combine learned moves in an ever-changing combination to prevent muscle adaptation, thus blasting through traditional workout plateaus like a crash dummy driving a bumper car full of dynamite. The gym has classes each weekday, with both early morning and early evening sessions to accommodate an array of schedules.
The sleek 38-foot long hull of the JouJou slices through the small-crested waves that surround Fort Lauderdale, deftly steered by the ship's captain who fluently jabbers with guests in English, French, and Spanish. She navigates the vessel along the sun-drenched shoreline for anywhere from 2.5-hour mini excursions to full 8-hour trips to destinations such as Boca Raton and Miami. Along the way, guests snack on refreshments from the two built-in fridges and plunge into the water for a swim. After which, they can rinse off in one of the boat's two freshwater showers in time for dinner on shore or a good night's sleep on the back of a passing tortoise.
