UPCOMING EVENTS

Mon
Brain Exhibit @ MODS
Mar 23 @ 10:00 am – Jul 1 @ 5:00 pm
Brain Exhibit @ MODS @ Museum of Discovery | Fort Lauderdale | Florida | United States

The Museum of Discovery and Science will host the 5,000-square-foot, traveling exhibit Brain: The World Inside Your Head.

What’s more important than your brain?
Now you can take a look inside this quintessential organic computer that is responsible for every thought, every motion and every response your body makes. BRAIN employs innovative special effects, 3-D reproductions, virtual reality, hands-on learning activities and interactive technology to delve into the inner workings of the brain, including its processes, potentials and mysteries.

Upon entry into the exhibit, you will walk through a shimmering tunnel — the midst of a functioning human brain. You will see flashing fiber-optics that illuminates networks of neurons firing and communicating inside the brain. From this dynamic beginning, BRAIN invites you deeper into the brain to discover its basic workings.

You can explore the revitalizing nature of sleep and learn about the latest brain imaging technologies, then study the re-created skull of Phineas Gage — a man who survived after his brain was pierced by a metal rod — as you trace the evolution of scientists’ understanding of the brain’s physiology.

You also will discover the reality of brain disorders, injuries and irregularities, and learn more about conditions such as Alzheimer’s, depression and addiction as you explore the relationship between depression and creativity, how drugs work in the brain, and the nature of pain. Finally, you will get a glimpse of the future of brain treatments in the new era of genome mapping and molecular medicine.

Made possible by Pfizer Inc and produced by Evergreen Exhibitions in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health, Brain: The World Inside Your Head began its run at the Smithsonian and has been touring to select cities in North America.

Using innovative special effects, hands-on learning activities, video games, optical illusions and interactive displays, BRAIN shows how the brain functions and how, like other parts of the body, it can sometimes malfunction.

This fascinating limited-engagement exhibit for all ages provides a hands on and up close look at the human body’s most essential and fascinating organ by exploring its development, geography and function. In the process, the exhibition makes brain-related disorders easier to understand. Sponsored locally by Leo Goodwin Foundation.

Experience the stillness of your local state park under the beautiful silver hue of the Moonlight. Coast gently through the Mangrove hammock and perhaps catch a glimpse of roosting birds, flitting fish or just glide under the stars and moonlight in a nocturnal adventure.

The tour takes approximately 3 hours from start to finish. Guests should dress appropriately for the outdoors, prepare for bugs, bring portable drinking containers and snacks. Tour start times vary by time of the sunset.

Beach Bear Weekend
May 6 @ 9:00 am – May 11 @ 11:45 pm
Beach Bear Weekend @ Fort Lauderdale Beach

Beach Bear Weekend was founded to bring men to greater Fort Lauderdale to experience the best we have to offer. Our city is like a cruise that doesn’t leave port. Come enjoy our world-class beaches, the nearby Everglades, our wild nightlife, and beachfront restaurants, shopping, and other attractions. We’ll show the bears one hell of a time!

This past year (2014) was by far the most successful year to date. Beach Bear Weekend was the host to more than 4,000 participants along with hundreds of other guests. Men traveled from all over the world to attend this event and enjoy our warm sunny beaches, refreshing ocean water and lively entertainment.

Beach Bear Weekend benefited our local economy with an estimated $500,000 in revenue attributable to the 2014 event. This is the largest (if not only) event of its kind located on the beach in North America. Most importantly, this event raised an approximate $25,000 for our benefactors; the Pride Center at Equality Park, and the Abandoned Pet Rescue.

As with every year, the schedule of events will focus on providing guests with activities hosted on and near-by the beaches of Fort Lauderdale, as well as the neighboring entertainment district of Wilton Manors, Florida. Beach Bear Weekend will be held May 6th through the 11th, 2015, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA. We proudly welcome the Courtyard by Marriott on Fort Lauderdale Beach as our Host Hotel for the fourth year.

BENEFACTORS
Proceeds from this event will benefit The Pride Center at Equality Park and The Abandoned Pet Rescue. These local organizations provide our community with much needed resources and support in the time of need.

For more than 19 years, The Pride Center has provided a welcoming, safe space–an inclusive home–that celebrates, nurtures and empowers the LGBTQ communities and our friends and neighbors in South Florida. The Pride Center’s programs and services meet the distinct socio-economic, health, spiritual, and safety needs of the LGBT community.

Abandoned Pet Rescue (APR) founded in 1996, is a 501(C)(3) IRS tax-exempt, qualified non-profit charitable organization that rescues and shelters abandoned, abused, and neglected pets, rehabilitates them and finds them new homes. APR is one of the largest no kill animal shelters in South Florida and is devoted to the welfare of all animals.

Mermaid Show @ The Wreck Bar | Fort Lauderdale | Florida | United States

Kick back with your favorite cocktail and enjoy the MeduSirena and Aquacats Mermaid Show every Saturday night at The Wreck Bar at B Ocean Resort, Fort Lauderdale.

Built in the 1950’s, the Yankee Clipper Hotel (now the B Ocean Resort) is an interesting attraction by itself — located right on Ft. Lauderdale Beach, as it is shaped to resemble a large ship.

Inside, you will find the Wreck Bar, an oasis of nautical kitsch resembling the interior of a ship wrecked Spanish Galleon, complete with aquariums and briny decor throughout. Then there is also an extra bonus- large portholes that look into the hotel’s pool from behind the bar. Friday evenings 6:30 PM, a live “Mermaid” and Aqua-dancer named MeduSirena and her “Pod”of “Aquaticats” swim past the portholes in the ‘MeduSirena Swimshow’, offering patrons a view of a more unusual Florida aquatic species. Unique establishments such as the Wreck Bar are dwindling in number- please support this Ft. Lauderdale treasure!
