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 […]

Who Will Be The Next Boca Raton Bowl Idol? You Decide!

Absolutely nothing, I repeat, *nothing* is like a college football game in Florida. The crazy tailgating, team rivalry, unbearable heat and excessive beer add up to unforgettable college experiences. (Note: The amount of beer you consume on college game day might make you forget the experience.) Right now we’re stuck in a football-free period of the […]

36 Hours at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa

Vacation stops feeling like vacation when: You have to arrange travel, hotels and rentals, figure out where to eat and what to do, and determine how to keep yourself from going mad when there are three kids in the back of the van asking, “Are we there yet?” But we live in a premier vacation […]

Staff Picks: Our Favorite Burgers in Palm Beach County and Beyond

It seems like I’ve been in the mood for a burger just about every day since the beginning of June. Maybe I’m just a die-hard carnivore. Actually, I know I am. And you probably are, too, if you’re reading this. So let’s talk best burgers today with the staff of Boca mag. Shayna Tanen, web editor (that’s me!) Mac Daddy […]

Boca Wants YOU to Choose a Downtown Transportation Method

Ever since the Downtowner abandoned Boca and hauled its efficient, simple tap-and-ride service vehicles to Tampa, we’ve been mourning its loss. Yeah, you can rent traditional, electronic or group bikes to get around. Or you can get a car rental, Uber or Lyft. But they’re not free like the Downtowner, whose service began in and […]

“Taste of Recovery” to Raise Awareness of Drug, Alcohol Addiction Through Your Fav Restaurants

Addiction is not the end of the road. People can change and survive. They can build their own road to recovery. This is what Louie Bossi, chef-partner of his namesake Italian restaurants in Fort Lauderdale and Boca, says over the phone.

Review: Kinky Boots at the Kravis Center

  The closing bows for this show were unlike any I’ve ever experienced. The show ended at the plot’s climax. The characters were still singing and dancing, and I found myself suddenly standing and clapping, not in applause, but to the beat of the music. That’s what makes “Kinky Boots” such a wonderful show. It […]
