October 17 to November 10- Hot Shoe ShuffleSmash Jukebox Musical Opens Sparkling Season 7 at The Wick Theatre – Are you ready to ‘cut a rug’? The Wick Theatre opens their seventh season with the Australian and West End smash hit, Hot Shoe Shuffle. This award-winning production features a cast of dynamic dancers tapping and singing their way through the biggest hits from the American Big Band era performed by a 10-piece live band.  Hot Shoe Shuffle is the ultimate in razzle dazzle tap! In 1992, the musical created by David Atkins tapped its way onto the stage in Sydney, Australia and became an instant success. The popularity of the show inspired a London production that resulted in a Olivier Award for best choreography and a nomination for Best Musical Production. The Wick’s director, Jonathan Van Dyke, is working with choreographer Justin M. Lewis on the production. Van Dyke was a featured performer on America’s Got Talent at Radio City Music Hall, as well as a co-creator of Tell-a-Vision, a technology and dance-based performance group. Van Dyke and Lewis have assembled an extraordinary cast with enormous energy and style. The musical concerns seven Tap Brothers, Spring, Slap, Buck, Wing, Tip, Tap and Slide, who learn of the death of their long-absent father. To claim their large inheritance, the brothers must rehearse and perform their Dad’s legendary act—the Hot Shoe Shuffle and include their long-lost sister! The Wick Theatre is located at 7901 N. Federal Highway. Boca Raton, FL 33487  The show runs October 17-November 10, 2019; matinees at 2pm, evenings at 7:30pm. Tickets are $75-$85 at www.thewick.org or call 561-995-2333.

October 14 to February 9-“Gridiron Glory: The Best Of the Pro Football Hall Of Fame”-How do you get 100 years worth of NFL memorabilia to Miami? Try six semi-trucks. That’s what it took to haul more than 200 artifacts and items to the History Miami Museum for this latest exhibit; The exhibit arrives ahead of Super Bowl LIV, which will be played Feb. 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. It’s the culmination of the NFL’s 100th season. Walking through the collection at HistoryMiami (101 W Flagler St.) is like taking an interactive tour of football history. There are 8,000-square feet of photographs, vintage jerseys, helmets, and interactive displays. The coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy is also on display in a “Champions Theater,” where announcers shout “Touchdown!” to the roar of crowds from video monitors. “Gridiron Glory” comes from the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, with the HistoryMiami Museum providing additional items about the Miami Dolphins. A “Hometown Heroes” section celebrates the Dolphins and athletes who played in South Florida during high school and college. It traces the history of African American players all the way back to the pre-NFL period of 1892-1919, when there were only four of them. By the 1970s, black players comprised more than 20 percent of the league’s labor force and then 70 percent by 2002, according to the panel. The exhibit looks back at the evolution of the sport, from the early days of helmets that were made with thin pieces of leather to the high-tech plastic that protects players today. One case features Dan Marino’s Dolphins jersey from the 1998 season. Next to it is a signed football from the Oct. 17, 1999 game where he became the first NFL quarterback to throw over 60,000 yards. The exhibit also recognizes Jason Taylor and displays his No. 99 jersey and helmet from the 2006 season, when he was named NFL Defensive Player Of The Year.The same area also celebrates the 10 Super Bowl games that Miami has hosted. Displays contain programs, pins, flip coins and caps from those games.  Address: HistoryMiami Museum, 101 W Flagler St., Miami, FL 33130 Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays; Noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The museum is closed Mondays. The “Gridiron Glory” exhibit will run until -Feb. 9. Admission: $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and students with identification. For more information: Call 305-375-1492 or visit historymiami.org.

While answering two questions, “What was your experience that day” and “What would you like to see come of it,” Witlen photographed and recorded the participants unscripted responses.

October 15 to May 15-Stone Crab Season! But ouch, according to the Sun Sentinel, those claws are going to pinch your wallets and pocketbooks. After the lowest harvest on record for the 2018-2019 season that ended in May (1.9 million pounds), fishers and crabbers are hoping for a rebound in supply. Sanchez says retail consumers should expect to pay $21-$26 a pound for medium claws, $37-$40 per pound for large, $45-$50 for jumbos and over $50 for colossal.  Tuesday’s arrival of the ocean treat also came draped in uncertainty. Last year’s supply was dinged by the aftereffects of red tide and Hurricane Michael. The harvest keeps dipping dramatically, and researchers are trying to determine if it’s a cyclical downturn or more worrisome existential threat to the native species triggered by climate change and warming seas. The 2017-2018 haul was 2.1 million pounds. Annual harvests used to regularly exceed 3 million pounds, according to state statistics. By the way, if you get them cracked at the store, it’s best to eat them within 12 hours. If you buy them uncracked, they can be refrigerated and eaten within two days. Where to get them:

Joe’s Stone Crab — 11 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, 305-673-0365. (Note: in its 106 season!)
Billy’s Stone Crab — 400 N. Ocean Drive, Hollywood, 954-923-2300.
Catfish Deweys — 4003 N. Andrews Ave, Fort Lauderdale, 954-566-5333.
Kelly’s Landing — 305 SE 17th St., Fort Lauderdale, 954-760-7009
Truluck’s — Galleria Mall, 2584 E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954-396-5656, and 777 Brickell Ave., Miami, 305-579-0035.

PROTECT THE DOLPHINS

NEWS:  A UNIQUE AND MEANINGFUL GIFT: “ADOPT A WILD DOLPHIN”

I JUST “ADOPTED” a wild dolphin–His name is “Wonder”- I received a “Certificate of Adoption”, a brief life history and color photograph of my dolphin–and a hard copy of the book “An Ocean of Inspiration”–The John Olguin Story.  Each dolphin has its own Facebook page (and there are 300 yet  to be adopted.) All this for only $30 +  $5 for shipping in the U.S.  ( Or, perhaps, just get a copy of this wonderful book for $15 +  $3 for shipping in the U.S. ) This makes a gift that truly supports a great cause. (Note: You will be helping a dolphin scientist with further  exploration, observation and research to help preserve these special mammals. Support the Palm Beach Dolphin Project- For info: harzen@nulltaras.org or  561-762-6473 Click here to watch this video of a dolphin show-   CLICK HERE  Note By Scientist, Explorer, Author, Dolphin Researcher-Dr. Stefan Harzan: If you have an opportunity to swim with dolphins…why not do it in the open ocean? There, the dolphins may stay close or have the freedom to swim away. It is so much better, because we meet them on their terms.

Contact to adopt your own dolphin: Harzen@nullTaras.org or 561-762-6473
