On Sunday, I headed over to Flip Flops Dockside Eatery for their monthly (1st Sunday of each month) T-Dance, which is the only T Dance on the Intracoastal. The night featured my buddy DJ Silvio and hostess Amanda Austin who worked the crowd with some dazzling performances. Flip Flops is a fun place to hang out, eat some comfort food, and watch the boats go by on the beautiful Intracoastal waterway. Later on, the Palace in South Beach celebrated Missy Meyakie LePaige birthday with a huge party where they surprised Missy and crowned her the first ever Miss Palace. Missy is a creative and fabulous entertainer and definitely someone you should keep your eye on!
