Gorillaz Bring Familiar Characters and New Music to III Points 2017

The moment I stepped out of the Uber I saw a woman wearing a banana suit. There would be many other one-piece suits at the III Points festival Friday evening. There were cow costumes, velvet leotards, bare butts and see-through clothes of all kinds. Gliding through the crowds listening to artists like Actress and Thundercat, […]

Sugarfina Gourmet Candy Shop will Make Your Inner Child Cry of Happiness

Sugarfina isn’t your average candy store. It’s not the fantastic candy shoppe with the overflowing soda taps and spools of candy buttons that Charlie Bucket stops into on his way home from school. While geared toward adults, it’s not 50 Cent’s version of a candy shop either. Devoid of kitsch, and decidedly simple, Sugarfina at […]

How to Boca-fy Your Fall Wardrobe and Other Season Must-Haves

With the recent onslaught of rain and wind, the approach of Halloween and the nationwide obsession with spiced gourd products (pumpkin spice deodorant is, unfortunately, on the market), I think it’s finally time to get serious about my fall wardrobe. As a South Floridian born and reared, I own a few sweaters and jackets (all also a few […]

How You Can Help Your Local Community After Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma bowled over the Caribbean and Florida and left a path of fallen pins in its wake. But that doesn’t mean they won’t be picked up. Local businesses and community members are already working to clean up and help those in need after this devastating storm. This report is by no means comprehensive, but […]

Junior League Announces Fashion Designer, Nominees for 30th Annual WVOY Luncheon

You know that time, right after work but before dinner, when restaurants start lighting candles and the sun gives off that golden light? When you leave work just a little early on a Friday to catch happy hour? We know you know it, and at this year’s Junior League of Boca Raton Woman Volunteer of […]

How Boca Mag Does the 2017 Solar Eclipse

I’ll just leave these photos right here and let you decide how much fun everyone at the office had looking at the solar eclipse! Even though Florida wasn’t in the “path of totality,” we got to see an 80 percent partial eclipse. With those eclipse glasses on, the sun burned deep orange, and I felt like […]

What It’s Like to Float in a Tank With No Light or Sound for 90 Minutes

“When people get out of the float, they’re really raw,” Destiny Beck said. What she meant is that after 90 minutes of floating in an isolation tank, where your feeling of physical existence is nearly wiped away, you can feel new, exposed or emotional when you get out. The experience, aftermath and benefits are as […]

Live in the Heart of Boca Raton at Brand New Palmetto Promenade Apartments

  One of my chief complaints of living outside a college town is how far everything is from my house. If I want a bite to eat, I have to get in the car and drive. And taking an Uber downtown? If you’re farther than 15 minutes away you’re going to rack up some serious […]
