The Legendary Johnny Cash

The Arts Garage’s production of “Ring of Fire” has been a huge critical and commercial hit with sold out shows and rave reviews.

A few tickets remain for matinees Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.

The show features the music of the legendary Johnny Cash.

Visit www.artsgarage.org for tickets and more information, but hurry tickets are selling.

 Oh What A Night

While we’re talking about music legends, walk like a man (sorry we couldn’t resist) and make sure to see Jersey Boys at a theater near you this weekend.

Don’t believe the reviews, the movie is terrific and the music of the Four Seasons is sublime.

It’s also just a great story of four guys from Newark who made it in a very tough business with a unique sound and infectious songs.

Word of warning: the music will stick in your head. The movie includes most of the hits including killer versions of “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.”

Great Things to Do and Summer Specials

Residents and tourists will find no place cooler than Delray Beach for water sports and for summer discounts at golf courses, tennis centers and most hotels and attractions. For example, if a full day of golf is too much, they can head over to Putt’n Around Delray Beach for a round of mini golf.


Delray Yacht Cruises is offering special rates for its two-hour daily narrated Intracoastal cruises and on brunch and dinner cruises.

Along with a great beach, you’ll find cool things under the sea when scuba diving, or snorkeling. Scuba Center Delray can get you set up. For fun on the water try paddle boarding, sailing and surfing. Delray Beach Watersports and newcomers The Salt Fly specialize in these kind of activities.


For wine and art connoisseurs, Vino Van Gogh Wine and Art Bar in Pineapple Grove offers a summer special of two classes and two glasses of wine – one each for you and a friend, or two for you – for $50.
