The bi-level sea vessel provides 90 minutes of dolphin’s-eye views of the city. See the skyline, Fisher Island, Miami Beach, and Millionaire’s Row from the comforts of this floating chariot. Each boat features an air-conditioned lower deck to encapsulate heat-sensitive captivators and an open-air top deck to properly soak up some salty ocean air, also known as Sailor's Delight and Seal Brew. For more palpable procurement, the boat also hosts a full cash bar with a small number of snacks available.
Despite the large contemporary buildings that surround it today, the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts retains as much charm as the day it opened in 1926, christened then as the Olympia Theater, a silent movie palace. Its completely restored Mediterranean courtyard, gilded balconies, Wurlitzer organ and decorative plasterwork serve as a reminder to the days when going to the theater was a major event. In its heyday the likes of Elvis Presley, B.B. King, Luciano Pavarotti and Etta James crossed the Gusman Center stage. Today the entertainment hall is home to jazz concerts, film festivals, the city’s emerging ballet company Ballet Palm Beach and the Miami Lyric Opera. And because it offers an intimate setting, it is possible to attend the opera without needing opera glasses.
The award-winning acting coach and filmmaker Ralph Kinnard still offers classes for beginners and professionals at Miami Acting Studio. His acting workshops are based on the techniques of Lee Strassberg (he of Actor’s Studio fame), the father of modern acting. Each once-a-week session works to teach actors the basics and beyond, by building on their natural instincts, emotions and abilities, before taking risks on stage. The class work includes improvisation and scene development to help actors build their craft, and many of the Studio’s graduates find work have had success in television and movies. Best of all: the first class is always free.
From whimsical to practical, Turcios Party Rental supplies party hosts with all the trappings for a successful bash. This includes Spongebob or Tinker Bell bounce houses, water slides, and snow-cone or cotton-candy machines. But it also encompasses tents, tables, and chairs, as well as table cloths, balloons, and other decorations.
The Event Depot's team will do anything to take a party to the next level—they'll even build a snow-covered mountain in the host's backyard. Their snow services transform pockets of Miami into winter wonderlands, converting yards into snowy peaks for sledding or building full-fledged ice-skating arenas.
They also furnish parties with less frosty accessories. Kids frolic in bounce houses and inflatables, and waterslides and dunk tanks keep parties wet and wild. Hosts can even rent the company's indoor and outdoor party venues, saving them the hassle of post-party clean-up and dropping leftover balloon animals off at the pound.
