What’s Hot South Florida 03/13 – 03/19
A week ago Tuesday was the bi-monthly Mack Luncheon which was celebrating their 9th anniversary at Grille 401 on Las Olas. The Luncheon was once again sold out. Congrats to Danny, DJ and their staff for 9 wonderful years and wishing them many more years of success. On Wednesday Uwe held his annual benefit for Grateful Paws at the Alibi. Once again it was a huge success raising over $10,000 for this worthy cause.
This past weekend was the annual Winter Party presented by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. Most of the parties this year were sold out (an unheard of phenomenon) and the beach party was probably the best it had ever been. It was a sea of good looking men, and what’s yummier then that? Enjoy these few pics and stay tuned to next week’s mag for all the pics.
