A week ago Tuesday, was the monthly Fort Lauderdale Mack Mixer, taking place this month at Taps Fort Lauderdale. Once again, it was a huge success. Thursday was the monthly GLBX After Hours Mixer at new Boca Smiles in Wilton Manors. I would like to congratulate Dr. Costabile of Boca Smiles on his second location. Also on Thursday, Z-Roc Dermatology celebrated their second anniversary. Congrats to Drs. Matthew Zarraga and Khongruk Wongkittiroch on a great first year in business and we wish them many more years of success. Thursday also brought us the annual Miss Village Pub pageant, which is now a preliminary to Miss Florida F.I. Well, there is something to say about persistence, as Alexis Couture was first runner-up last year and came back this year and won every category. Congrats to Alexis and Village Pub’s owners and staff on a fabulous pageant. Filthy Gorgeous Fridays at Score presented, direct from Argentina, comedian Diego Garcia Moyano.
