Icon Auto fulfills autobahn fantasies with a dapper fleet of pedigree cruisers that handle roads at high speeds. Clients can sweet talk the motor mistress of their dreams during a 24-hour date with a spacious Escalade, known for nabbing the attention of music-video producers while suavely persuading death-wishing bugs to reinvest in achieving their dreams.

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.
