Pop Bros
Disney’s favorite siblings Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas come to the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. Their PG-rated lyrics, sophisticated melodies and wholesome family-friendly image make them an appealing act for the entire family. Get tickets at

Canine Cocktails
Grab your canine and head over to Ibis Lounge at Key Colony Plaza for some doggie-themed cocktails this summer. The venue will feature Happy Hour drink specials on Mondays from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. throughout the season. Just make sure Fido’s on a leash to avoid “bark” fights at the bar. Stop by at 200 Crandon Blvd., #101, and tell them we sent you. Oh, and try to avoid a WUI (Walking Under the Influence) on your way home. Your pooch won’t be too happy spending the night in the pound!

50th Fourth!
For half a century, the fireworks over Key Biscayne on 4th of July have been brighter than anywhere else in South Florida thanks to the island’s Parade Committee and resident Independence Day lovers who partake in the festivities.

The celebration starts at 11 a.m. sharp on July 4 on Crandon Blvd. beginning at Harbor Dr. and ending at West Wood Dr. To promote your business or organization to parade-goers throughout the festivities, or to find out about other ways you can participate, call 305.593.2222 x805.
