Dance 101 at BRLTA | 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 29

Now that summer's officially arrived, it’s time to reflect on how we're going to spend the season:

A) Weekend getaways, B) Picnics and barbecues, C) Celebrating Independence Day with summery cocktails, and, of course, D) Looking sizzling hot in your new bikini.

So why is it that A, B and C contradict D? We have your fitness fix.

This Wednesday, June 29, Boca Raton Life Time Athletic brings you Dance 101, the newest in the ongoing Life & Learn 101 series. Beginning at 7 p.m., shimmy, step and waltz your way to a toned physique under the instruction of Samantha Melesenka for just $5 (benefiting the Life Time Fitness Foundation).

Dancing is uplifting, sexy, and increases strength and flexibility while torching calories. It’s no wonder that trends like Zumba DVDs and sitcoms like Dancing with the Stars have become such hits. In fact, Dancing with the Stars is a perfect example of how fun and effective dancing can be. While many stars entered the show fit and trim (personal trainers and private chefs can do wonders!), consider the stars, like Kirstie Alley and Kelly Osbourne, who have battled their weight and ended the season looking and feeling phenomenal.

Good news is, you don’t have to be asked on Dancing with the Stars to reap all of these wonderful benefits - just join us at Boca Raton Life Time Athletic for Dance 101! Not only with you become bikini ready, but you’re sure to appreciate all those extra endorphins, as well as a new hobby that you can show off on the dance floor. Now that’s a commitment worth keeping.

Mizner Park Downtown Drive Kicks Into Gear With First Annual Car Show

On Father's Day Sunday, June 19, Boca Raton was taken back in time to an era where automotive craftsmanship went hand in hand with artistry.

Even with rain clouds overhead, the spirit of the first annual Mizner Park Downtown Drive was exciting and full of surprises. With nostalgic tunes flowing through the air, the normally quiet Mizner Park was turned into a chic park where everyone, from the young to those who were around when the rides weren't considered classics, could enjoy themselves.

From 1940s antiques, to 1960s vintage rides, to sexy, exotic motor vehicles provided by Lou la Vie, the cars featured at this year's event made Father's Day as memorable as it was fun.

It's hard to imagine how next year will top this one, but with the enthusiasm and good time had by all, there's no doubt that 2012 will have rarer, even hotter rides making their way to Boca Raton for kids, family and appreciators alike to admire and envy.

HERLIFE Launch Party Connects South Florida Women

More than 400 of South Florida’s most remarkable women (and a few good men) gathered at Il Bacio Restaurant & Lounge Thursday, June 16, to celebrate the launch of HERLIFE Magazine, the only glossy lifestyle magazine in the area created and written by women, for women.
The champagne started flowing promptly at 7 p.m. (Who doesn’t love a little bubbly to begin the evening?) Guests, among them Delray Beach Councilwoman Contance Scott, poured in and were treated to passed hors d’oeuvres by PRIME and a table stacked with gourmet cupcakes from Cupcake Cottage for dessert.  (The Gab Girls can’t say no to cupcakes, so we admit we snuck a few while on duty!) While some mingled with beaming HERLIFE Editor Karen Alleyne-Means, others struck a pose at the portrait stand courtesy of Shelley Arminio from MonkeyFacePhoto.com.

The HERLIFE staff, Il Bacio Owner Steven Pellegrino, local philanthropist Cindi Krost, socialites Michael and Karen Towner, and renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Man joined Alleyne-Means and her husband, Shawn Means, for the official ribbon cutting and speech, marking the launch of South Florida’s newest women’s magazine.

A magazine launch party wouldn’t be complete without swag bags. Each guest went home with a hot pink bag stuffed with the first four issues of HERLIFE Magazine and luxury gift items from Cenegenics Medical Institute Boca Raton, Dr. Daniel Man Plastic Surgery, Life Time Fitness Boca Raton, Butlers in the Buff Florida, and Il Bacio.

We think the success of the launch party is just the beginning of great things to come from HERLIFE Magazine...

Caliente Kitchen Celebrates One Sizzling Year on the Ave

On Friday, June 3, the One Year Anniversary Party for Caliente Kitchen was almost too hot to handle as the dining and nightlife hotspot officially celebrated a successful year on Atlantic Avenue.

Sponsored by Svedka Vodka and Sauza Tequila, Caliente’s fiesta started off right with one hour of premium open bar. Later, Maxim Hometown Hottie Lisa Morales and the Caliente girls raised the temperature a bit more as they shimmied and danced their way through the party.

Outside, the crowd enjoyed the pulsating tracks of DJ Konnekt, who turned the dance floor into a scorching hotspot that the guests couldn’t seem to leave.

Guests cooled off by the ice sculpture of Maxim Hottie Lisa Morales before bringing the party inside to dance with her and the other Caliente girls.
After this smokin’ party, we know you can stand the heat! Look out for more events coming soon to Caliente Kitchen Delray and Boynton Beach.

This Father's Day, Treat Dad to the Mizner Park Downtown Drive

When you think about cars, thoughts about dad probably don't trail far behind.

Most likely, he was the lucky guy in the passenger seat as you learned how to drive, coaching you as you repeatedly failed to differentiate between 'forward' and 'reverse.' He taught you how to change a tire, effortlessly navigated hundreds of miles on long road trips, and will now and forever know more about cars than you. That's just what dads do.

This Father's Day (Sunday, June 19), treat him to something special at the First Annual Mizner Park Downtown Drive. All day long, Mizner Park will be transformed into a stunning showroom of vintage cars from the 1920s to the 1960s on display and on parade, including post-war European sports and exotic cars by Lou La Vie.

Does your dad, uncle or grandfather have a classic of his own he'd like to show off? Register now to showcase a vintage ride in your own street-side space. Fan Favorite prizes will be awarded, and early registrants will receive a commemorative gift.

There is no entry fee or charge to participate, and club membership is not required.
Spots may be reserved in hourly blocks between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Call (561) 750-3500 to register today. But hurry, space is limited!
