As we usher in 2018, we once again are given the opportunity for a fresh slate. It’s our chance to set our sights on new beginnings, try something new, or explore a new adventure. Each year at this time, we resolve to take stock of our lives and reassess what our priorities are; what is it that we really want out of this new year and in turn, the rest of our lives? Well, if part of your New Year’s “bucket list” entails making time for friends and family and enjoying things that make you happy, then you may want to see our long list of things to do this January at The District. This month, Fort Lauderdale’s Riverwalk A & E District will help you cure the January blues with a Holiday Hangover party, enjoy a proper tea with a spoonful of art history, listen to a concert under balmy skies and get caught up in the drama of a fiery love — and that is just for starters as we begin this promising new year.

Spirits soared at the Broward Center, as ticket holders were treated to a mini opera preview of “Lucia di Lammermoor” by Justin Moss, and a tasting of a classic Scotch whiskey and Scottish beer by Lyn Farmer, prior to Florida Grand Opera’s critically acclaimed performance took the stage. The story of an unlucky Scottish girl, who is used as a pawn in her family’s plot to revive its fortune, was the dramatic pinnacle to this phenomenal evening that brought together all the senses for an unforgettable experience.

Join us for a similar sensory experience on Saturday, Feb. 10 as Florida Grand Opera presents “Salome.”
