Maybe you were a smarter kid than I was, because until I was about 12, I really thought that Komonahwannalayuh was an actual Hawaiian monarch. The reality about our nation’s 50th state is far more exotic, charming—and gay, and jet-setting maven Robert Elias Deaton, takes us to the tasty archipelago that was once called the Sandwich Islands, inside this week’s Travel.
Father’s Day is the perfect time to take out your daddy, Papi, Pap-o—or even your actual father—for some delicious dining. I don’t know which part of me loves Italian cuisine more: the Italian part—I mean, c’mon, Fuhgeddaboudit!—or the Irish, which is hot for the Italian in me. Both halves were delighted to read this week’s Dining review from foodie Richard David Chamberlain, who takes us this week to Fort Lauderdale’s Fiore de Tedesco’s, on East Commercial Boulevard, for a look at one of the happening spots on the east side of town. (And with a menu item named after Old Blue Eyes himself—Pollo Sinatra—I mean, seriously, how can you go wrong?)
Want to know the “skinny” on what foods are good—and what foods are good to avoid? Nutrition expert Andy “The Core” Kress has the low-down on Super-Foods (and Not-So-Super-Foods). Are Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Chris Martin, and Gwyneth Paltrow really taking a Recreational Vehicle on a summer road trip around Florida? Grant James knows all and tells all—along with two new album reviews—this week in The SCENE. We also take you OUT (in Florida), to see what’s hot and happening around the Sunshine State this week, and Terri Schlichenmeyer reviews “Redefining Diva” in an all-new Bookshelf.
Happy Father’s Day!
