Autoverks Classic Car Show held the 3rd Saturday night of every month offers great family fun and is especially enjoyable if you also love cars. Every month the crowd grows as well as the number of cars. Adding to the fun, event organizer Gables Rotarian Fred Baddour brings his fire truck equipped with a working fire hose. This provides great photo ops as kids of all ages try their hand at using the fire hose to knock down a traffic cone.
The October 18th show also had a guest celebrity look alike too. Dressed as Gene Simmons from KISS, Paul Bowers’ antics brought lots of laughs and excitement. Save the date for the next car show on Saturday Nov. 15, 6 – 9 p.m. at 8700 SW 133 St. in front of Autoverks. On the cultural front, this is the last week to catch the musical at Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre. This is a sexy new pop opera called Murder Ballad.
On opening night Chairman of the Board Dr. Lawrence E. Stein and Executive Producing Director Barbara S. Stein welcomed guests to the event that began with a cocktail reception courtesy of Bacardi, Premier Beverage Company & Miami Brewing Company, followed by a delectable dinner buffet provided by Pincho Factory and Coldstone Creamery. In addition, Bravo Musicians roused the guests got the crowd going with upbeat Jazz music. Roxy Productions had guests dancing the night away after the show in the company’s Black Box Theatre.
Murder Ballad plays through November 2, 2014, and it is one show you will not want to miss. Evening performances will be held Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m., with afternoon matinees on Sunday at 3 p.m. Single tickets may be purchased through the box office at 305-444- 9293 or online at www.actorsplayhouse.org.
Finally, congratulations to Pete de le Torre on the first anniversary of his business talk radio show that airs 8 – 9 a.m. weekdays on 880 BIZ Radio. This is definitely one of the very best and informative business talk shows on air. A celebration at Smith and Wollensky recently provided Pete and his COO of Pete de la Torre Enterprises, Sally Villalba, with a chance to surprise the guests with a video produced be All in 1’s Ira Haber, in which many of those attending were featured.
The great thing about Pete’s show is the variety of current and impactful topics, great guests and, for this writer who has been on air with Pete, the opportunity to share the many good works that our local non profits are doing in the community to make this a better place for all. Thanks Pete.
Until next time, keep making each day count.
