Season is here and there are dozens of activities happening in South Florida. The biggest obstacle may be choosing what to do, where to go and what to see. 

The Flagler Museum, offers a Gilded Age style lunch each afternoon during season. Cafe Des Beaux-Arts is located on the Flagler Museum grounds in the Flagler Kenan Pavilion. It is reminiscent of a 19th century Beaux-Arts railway palace. Guests will enjoy culinary delicacies in the elegance of the Gilded Age - gourmet tea sandwiches, scones and sophisticated desserts - while enjoying the panoramic views of the Downtown West Palm Beach waterfront skyline.  The Cafe Des Beaux-Arts lunch is served through March 26, 2016 at Flagler Museum Whitehall, One Whitehall Way, Palm Beach, FL 33480 for more information please call (561) 655-2833.

The "Kravis on Broadway" series continues at the Kravis Center. The performing arts center brings Phantom of the Opera to life March 23 - April 1, 2017 as the start of the North American Tour.  It is said, "The beloved story and thrilling score - with songs like “Music of the Night,” “All I Ask Of You,” and “Masquerade” - will be performed by a cast and orchestra of 52, making this PHANTOM one of the largest productions now on tour."  A must see in the 2017 season! The 2016-2017 series tickets will go on sale to the public in July. For more information about becoming a donor, log on to kravis.org/membership, or call (561) 651-4320 

Do you have plans to celebrate Black History Month?  Visit the historic jazz venue, Sunset Lounge, 609 Eighth Street, in the Northwest Neighborhood of West Palm Beach.  The jazz club saw the likes of Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Ike, and Tina Turner grace its stages. The "boxy, pastel painted building was once a hot spot for the best African American entertainers in the industry".  The Lounge will highlight the city of West Palm Beach's restoration efforts.

 Norton Museum of Art's contemporary art jewelry sale returns for the fifth year.  The fundraiser is February 25 - 28, 2016 and offers the pieces and works of more than 35 international artists from across the globe.  The event is free with a paid museum admission. The Norton Museum of Art is located at 1451 South Olive Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL.  For more information, please call 561-832-5196 or visit Norton.org.
