At each of Advanced Vision Care's five locations, a team of optometric physicians examines peepers of all age brackets for signs of aberration or disease. They then furnish patients with prescriptions that can be formed into contact lenses or slung into stylish frames from the likes of Prada, Lacoste, and BCBG. The staff also performs Lasik consultations, in which they determine candidacy, recommend a Lasik doctor, and provide a series of post-op checks. Most locations house a multilingual team, who can answer questions or reflect on metaphysical quandaries in English, Spanish, or Hebrew.
Tiffini Theisen of PB Pulse describes Jumby Bay Island Grill as "a big, loud, colorful party place with bar specials, live music many nights, and a good-sized patio to do some Abacoa people-watching." Outside on the dog-friendly covered patio, wooden tables and wicker-inspired chairs sit beneath a flat-screen TV and swirling fans. Fishing nets, corrugated-tin accents, and painted oars that serve as room dividers give the interior a relaxed, tropical atmosphere reminiscent of a Caribbean island or the screen saver of most Alaskan office workers.
The seafood-filled menu is also tropically inspired and features starters such as sesame-seared tuna with wasabi aioli and entrees including the Calypso pasta: spicy shrimp, andouille sausage, and Cajun cream sauce over linguine. Diners chill fired-up taste buds with a variety of fruity frozen drinks and cold beer.
As the Advanced Class A affiliate of the Florida Marlins, the Jupiter Hammerheads showcase diamond-dwellers aspiring to follow the path to major league fame already trodden by alumni such as Cliff Lee. Gather a quartet of friends or singing barbers and witness the homeric battle between ball and bat as it plays out at Roger Dean Stadium, also home of the Palm Beach Cardinals and the newest baseball facility of its kind in Florida. From field box seats, stretching down the first- and third-base lines, fans will enjoy unobstructed views of Hammerhead players as they intimidate opponents into submission with rocket-fueled fastballs, gravity-razzing catches, and cryptic riddles.
The Jupiter Seafood Festival blends fish and fun in a three-day event. Vendors sell nautical wares as booths shell out helpings of local, fresh seafood, including crawfish, mussels, crab cakes, and scallops. Kids and adults who have memorized the entire Nickelodeon cartoon lineup can participate in child-friendly activities, and people of any age can boogie to the live music from bands such as Boxelder, the Blues Brothers Soul Band, and a Tom Petty and Billy Joel tribute band, who will play all weekend to keep the party going.
At Dental Spa at Abacoa, licensed dentists offer a variety of family and cosmetic dentistry. They check out new patients with comprehensive exams, cleanings, and x-rays, looking for issues that might not be externally obvious. They also improve smiles with veneers, implants, and root canals.
