For many years the Dania Jai-Alai frontón courts were an icon, a symbol of the quirky character of South Florida. Then it went into a slump. Now it’s back and better than ever, thoroughly re-imagined and remodeled into the Casino at Dania Beach. Set within the ambience and non-stop excitement of winning slot machines and festive casino-goers, the biggest names in music and comedy have a new place to call home: Stage 954. The venue is just the right size. Large enough to attract top singers, bands and comedians, but not too big that you lose that rare, intimate entertainment feel. The food is great here, too, making it a destination for a night out with friends even without the show. And let’s not forget the jai-alai. Grab one of the casino’s many fabulous cocktails and be prepared to be amazed by balls flying at almost 200 mph, making it the fastest sport in the world. Now that’s fun you can bet on;
