Pita Max!!!


What could be better than a healthful bowl of hummus and chips to scoop all that deliciousness into your mouth with? How about adding a tropical setting? Wait… How about a tropical setting and a gorgeous sunset, to go along with that? Yeah, that’s sounding good. A toasty fireplace, a comfy couch, a game of Scrabble and the snow piling up beside the logs outside, along with a cozy somebody to snuggle up with inside would also be a boon, but we’ve just strayed from the original plan. Okay, transplant that elsewhere; back to the tropics.


I’m thinking balmy breezes, a hammock swinging between the palms, some wide, white sandy beaches and a swath of warm, sea-blue water, warmer than a bathtub, to dip my toes into. How about unlimited drinks… Now, that’s starting to sound like a plan! Yeah — could use some soft drinks to cool me down, and maybe you could throw-in an open wine or beer bar, to boot? That’s not too much trouble, is it?


I know… Then, you could add a cruise on top of that vision you’re building up of the perfect vacation. Mmmm, sounds good. But, not a long one. Just a jaunt along that beautiful stretch of water: take in the scenery, maybe see how the rich and famous live in their waterfront homes.


You are not daydreaming. You are discovering one of the latest “Top 20” deals from Travelzoo.com. This unbelievable package from playtimewatersports.com sets sail from Miami aboard a 50-ft. catamaran on a two-hour excursion, including everything above, plus cheese, crackers, and fruit, for only $35.00 per person, excluding tax, tip and cozy-buddy (those are separate). This company also offers some other great-sounding day trips, such as the three-hour catamaran cruise to a sandbar, where you’re then free to use their personal watercraft and other toys, go paddleboarding or snorkeling, play aqua volleyball — all included in the reasonable costs of the package, as well. Most Thursdays through Sundays; Good through May 29, 2016. Except for the typos in the text at their web site, it all sounds like a great deal. You can check it out!

While you’re in the area then, if you happen to be in South Florida on April 2nd, you can extend the pita love and culture, and meet the iconic, incredible artist: Peter Max!!! Free!!! Peter Max is coming to Wentworth Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Boca Raton, Florida on April 2nd, 2016. Peter Max’s work has single-handedly defined a generation, the ‘Sixties’, with his unique use of color, whimsy, and popular culture. His style has set modern standards of artistry, and yet his approachable warmth and remarkable talent lend his art a place in every heart. My newest favorites of his include his angels, the American flag, Lady Liberty, the world, and the fondly-remembered old “Love” styles, as well as the new “Love” styles. (We always remember our old loves, don’t we?)
