Robin Coles, maritime marketing consultant, will be covering the Newport International Boat show in Newport, Rhode Island for her blog, TheNauticalLifestyle.com from 12 to 15 September 2013.
One of the largest boat shows in the country features hundreds of new sailboats and powerboats, presented along 13 acres of historic Newport Harbor.

After establishing Midtown EcoVillage and serving the Daytona Beach community for two years, Omar and Camille Brown would like to open a vegan cafe and smoothie bar. Kale Cafe Juice Bar and Vegan Cuisine will be the only Vegan place in Volusia County when it opens. Located in beautiful Daytona Beach, less than one mile from the beach, the Kale Cafe will be a place for vegans, vegetarians, athletes, college students, artists, and everyone who wants to be healthier. According to Camille Holder-Brown, “in addition to vegan food and smoothie and juice concoctions, we will be a place for live music and DJs, as well.”
Midtown EcoVillage Kale Cafe & Juice Bar will offer 100% vegan cuisine and also have a fully loaded juice and smoothie bar. Additionally, they will offer weekly low cost vegan cooking classes, family fitness events, an educational play space, gardening workshops, etc.
Check out Midtown EcoVillage’s Kickstarter Campaign and help if you can. By the way, I did the video.

The American Foundation for the University Of The West Indies (AFUWI) in association with Riddims Marketing will present Caribbean Jazz Matazz Saturday, September 28 at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

The intimate Amaturo Theatre at the Broward Center seats only 590 guests and patrons are urged to purchase tickets early, as early indications are that this will be a sold-out event with strong support coming from the UWI Alumni South Florida Chapter as well as fans of the performers.
