Da Vinci's Demons

Picked by David Shuff, Videographer and Video Editor

“Excellent action-adventure take on the early career of the maestro, created by David S. Goyer, writer of the most recent Batman film trilogy. Very speculative - don't bother if you are looking for strict historical accuracy. Not for kids, occasional nudity and violent content.”

Watch it on STARZ network. Season one is currently available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Mussel Beach 

Picked by Nancy Kumpulainen, Art Director

“I can't get enough of Mussel Beach in Delray! I love that most of the menu items are gluten free. The mussels are out of this world (from Prince Edward Island)! Try a Moscow Mule while you're there too, served in an authentic copper mug. So cool and refreshing in this hot summer heat. The happy hour is great too: two for one house drinks and amazing menu specials.” 

Mussel Beach: 501 E. Atlantic Ave. Delray Beach // 561/921-6464

Smells Like Grunge

Picked by John Thomason, Assistant Editor

"I interviewed two of the three guys in Smells Like Grunge, South Florida's Nirvana tribute act, for a feature on our September/October issue (available now). But I'll finally get to see them perform this Friday, Aug. 22, at the Vintage Tap (524 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach). They perform like the reincarnation of the groundbreaking alternative band, playing everything from chart-topping hits to posthumously released obscurities, and vocalist Justin Hucker even dons a blonde wig and adjusts his guitar-playing abilities to embody Kurt Cobain. The show is free and begins at 9 p.m."

Rack's Fish House & Oyster Bar: 5 S.E. Second Ave., Delray Beach // 561/450-6718
