Beach Bear Weekend is Back On –Sort Of
A few weeks ago, I reported that this year’s Beach Bear Weekend in Fort Lauderdale had been pirated by scam artist and that none of the sponsors mentioned in the PR had agreed to participate. But since so many guys had already booked their flights, a Beach Bear Weekend has been put together to satisfy our hungry masses:
Friday, May 6th
Noon – 4:00 pm: Sebastian Street Beach
6:00 – 8:00 pm: ARCHETYPE – Portraits by Blake Little – PUBLIC EXHIBIT OPENING. Stonewall Museum. Details: http://www.stonewall-museum.org/event/archetype-portraits-by-blake-little-public-exhibit-opening/

Finish off dinner and indulge with a visit to JP’s Chocolate Shoppe, 2410 Wilton Drive (954-368-5533), and perhaps a last-minute Mother’s Day gift ….
Thereafter: Come back to the Beach, Bears, and hunt down some fun – just don’t be a pig about it😉. Hunter’s Beach Bar (235 Almond Ave.) and the Village Well Pub (1023 SE 17th St.) are on the itinerary tonight as BeachBear Weekend crosses over into some of our favorite parts of the Fort Lauderdale “parallel universe.”
Sunday, May 8th
3:00 pm onwards: Come enjoy a spectacular thousand-foot long pier and some of the best views of the end of the Air Show at Anglin’s Pier and Beach Side Cafe, 2 East Commercial Boulevard, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea – just minutes north of Sebastian Beach. Tons of choices of cuisine in the local area and the best way to perfect the fine art of hanging out, BeachBear Weekend style.
Thereafter: All of South Florida is the BeachBear’s range. Catch up with friends, head to your favorite spots north, south, or inland, and close out BeachBear Weekend as we look forward to welcoming you back in 2017!
