Our January issue is full of super reasons to be in South Florida now – besides the obvious one involving Cardi B, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and, oh yes, some football.
Leading up to the Super Bowl Feb. 2 at Hard Rock Stadium, we’ve made some informed guesses which will be the best of the pre-game VIP events. (Even if we’re wrong, they’re still going to be pretty good).We’ll look back at South Florida’s history as a Super Bowl venue. (Miami may not have been the first city to host a Super Bowl, but it always partied like it might be the last.) City & Shore Editor Mark Gauert also remembers his first Super Bowl in Miami, the game that was “probably the most important one in NFL history,” which cost exactly $12.
What big game would be complete without something cold in hand? A well-crafted beer may be the touchdown – but the food’s an extra point at these local breweries.
We’ll also check in with the Motwani family, who have set up a school of hospitality to recognize their patriarch; with author Susie Levan, whose traumatic and ultimately triumphant journey comes alive in Getting to Forgiveness; with Hamilton, returning to South Florida for performances in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties; and with The Cleveland Orchestra, who’ll take on Mahler’s Symphony No. 5.
All this and more in the January issue of City & Shore, in print, digital and online this weekend, http://www.cityandshore.com/
