Hospitality Beach Bash 2013 was a big success By Starlet Anne Contributing Writer


he 13th Annual Hospitality Beach Bash was like none in the past several years; the attendees were all InTheBiz®. Over the last several years, this bash was not what the founders had planned. The event had turned into just a party with no real purpose. Not this year! Mike Atwell, Food and Beverage Manager of PostCard Inn, wanted to change the perception of this 13-year-old

6 • ITB • June 2013

event and turn it back into what the original hosts intended. He hosted this great event with the help of his wonderful staff. Atwell made sure of that. Bar owners, bartenders, cocktail servers and others InTheBiz® were among their peers from all over South Florida to enjoy the bash. It was truly what it was originally designed to be- a way for the industry personnel to unwind after a tough season of dealing with tourists, an opportunity to test some new types of liquor brands being offered to the industry by major and local

companies and to enjoy some fun and games. Mike Atwell wanted to make sure that this is what they would get. The 2nd Annual Bar Lympics was a huge success with events, such as volleyball, corn hole, beer pong and ladder ball. The teams from Tijuana Taxi and Paddy’s were the winners of the volleyball competition. The Beer Pong tournament was so much fun, thanks to the group from Gold Coast Distributing for donating Beck’s Sapphire beer for this competition. As usual the bikini contest was one of the best parts of the two-day event. Girls from all over South Florida were showing off their awesome bodies for the chance to win their share of $1,500 in cash prizes. In the end, Amelia from Lulu’s Bait Shack, Beach Place was the winner of the grand prize. Rob Husted and his team from FlairBar. com hosted the annual flair competition. Flair Bartenders come from all over the country to enter this much anticipated competition and win cash! With bottles flying through the air, they competed in several events from carefully and quickly twirling and throwing bottles to creating tasty drinks with the liquor and mixers provided. This year, Big 105.9 was a huge part of the event. The Emcee’s and DJ’s did a great job of keeping everyone entertained and dancing throughout the days and nights.

Where do you work? Cowboys Saloon Where are you from originally? Cooper City Florida How long have you been InTheBiz®? 2 years What do you like best about bartending/ Serving? Bartending is a fun way to make money; I get to party and work all at the same time! I’ve always been known as a little social butterfly, and a party girl. My favorite part is definitely meeting new people and learning about their interests and favorite drinks! Why did you choose to become a bartender/ server? I chose to become a bartender when I applied for college. My mom always told me bartending is a temporary job that I would succeed at while in school. She literally forced me to go to Bartending School the day I turned 18. Starting at Hooters, serving people encouraged me to apply as a bartender! Ever

since then I’ve been hooked! Making up shots and naming them what I want makes the job fun and exciting! Bartending has changed my life in so many ways. I guess Mothers are always right! What is the most ordered drink? The most ordered drink is FIREBALL. Country boys are the hottest! What is your favorite drink to make?

Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Diane Lane and Kevin Costner. Squaring off against the superhero are

Cypher’s teenage son, Kitai (Jaden Smith), feels enormous pressure to follow in his father’s legendary footsteps -- which strains their relationship. Cypher and Kitai set out on a trip to mend their

bond, but when their craft crashes on Earth’s hostile surface, each must trust the other greatly -- or perish. If you like magic, check out Now You See Me. The film pits an elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against “The Four Horsemen”, a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists. “The Four Horsemen” pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law. Next month will also kick off with Fourth of July celebrations and a spectacular fireworks display on Fort Lauderdale Beach! Enjoy your summer and check out one of these many fun filled events!

South Florida Icon Celebrates in Style By Josie Vargas Contributing Writer


or over 20 years the name B. Love has been synonymous with the biggest and wildest parties in South Florida’s History. Brian Saraceno aka B. Love has owned or operated some of the biggest & best nightspots since the early nineties. The Original Club Boca, Club Asia, B Bar, Aqua Lounge, then off to Atlanta to be the GM of The World Famous Gold Club (which became the #1 adult entertainment club in the country) Then to South Carolina to open the 30,000 sq. ft. Emerald City and back to open Emerald City in Ft. Lauderdale all the while, unbeknownst to most people B. Love’s voice was a South Florida Staple. There’s no doubt that you’ve heard it before. His voice has been on every radio station in South Florida screaming car commercials for Kendal Toyota Lincoln Mercury. B. Love was the national voice for Mitsubishi as well as legendary spots for Purgatory, (where a huge number of Top DJ’s got their start) Cool World (where he was instrumental in bringing Hip Hop to the fore front in South Florida) B. Love, along with his marketing company, Dreamflex Marketing, revived over 50 businesses around the country but he still calls South Florida his home. He has produced over 300 concerts over

the years with names including James Brown, Ray Charles, Run DMC, Kool & the Gang, Prodigy, Marilyn Manson and so many more. Seems like every time someone says he’s getting to old for the business he re-invents himself. In 2010 the partners at Capone’s Nightclub had given up on the project and asked him to see if it still had a chance to be what it once was. After ripping down the “For Sale” signs, he interjected a relentless marketing plan fueled by an amazing staff and brought Capone’s not only back to life but made it a force to be reckoned with in South Florida. In 2011 he was inducted into the InTheBiz® Hall of Fame and was once more the driving force behind one of South Florida’s hottest clubs. B. Love continues to surprise and delight us with his over the top promotions. He hosts “The Chocolate Party”, “Little Black Dress”, and most recently “Turning Japanese”. If you haven’t partied with Brian here’s your chance. Friday Night June 14th beginning at 9pm the craziest party of the year is on! This year “B. Love’s Birthday Bash” is called ‘The Ice Party” A Diamonds and Ice Extravaganza which you don’t want to miss. Come out to Capone’s and say Happy Birthday to a true South Florida Icon. B. Love always has a big smile for you whenever you go to Capone’s and they love to celebrate your graduations, engagements and birthdays, hence the

name B. Love. We all hope he stays in the businesses for a long time. He’s certainly one of a kind! Capone’s is located at 310 SW 2nd Street, Downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Chris Bosh the Key to the Miami Heat’s Deep Playoff Run By Allen Levin Sports Editor


he Miami Heat are in the midst of their third consecutive deep postseason run. As of the writing of this article, they are up 1-0 against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals. The Heat need seven more wins to hoist their second consecutive championship trophy, but this year’s run is certainly different than last year’s title season. This year, the Miami Heat have a healthy Chris Bosh. As you likely recall, Bosh went down in Game 1 of the second round of the playoffs last year against this same Indiana team. He missed nine crucial games, and the Heat went just 5-4 in his absence. The Heat needed heroic performances from LeBron James and Dwyane Wade just to survive. It became obvious what head coach Erik Spoelstra had been saying for so long: Bosh is the Heat’s most important player. That statement will continue to prove true for as long as the Heat’s run continues

this year. That is because of the three other remaining teams, all of them have traditional, dominant big men. Having a big-time paint presence on the defensive side of the ball has been somewhat of an Achilles heel for Miami since the Big Three era started. However, that is where Bosh will be the key. Bosh is not your traditional big man, but he has the advantage of being so versatile and athletic that he limits the effectiveness of opposing, traditional big men. Bosh has excellent range for a near 7-footer, being able to knock down the three-point ball on occasion and is absolutely lethal from just inside the arc. He has great finesse, is quick on his feet and also boasts some solid post moves. More importantly, he can draw big defenders like Roy Hibbert, Marc Gasol or Tim Duncan away from the basket to allow driving lanes to open up for James and Wade. That will become crucial as the Heat continue their series against Indiana or play the Grizzlies/Spurs if they advance to the NBA Finals. So, as long as Bosh stays healthy, look for

the forgotten member of the Big Three to be the key to another Larry O’Brien trophy for the Heat.

Florida Panthers Look to Rebound After Disappointing Season


here was a lot of excitement going into the 2013 NHL season for Florida Panthers fans. The team had just come off its first playoff appearance and division title in over a decade. They had a solid set of players in place and seemed poised for another run at the division crown. However, a rash of devastating injuries and underperformances from key players led to a last-place finish in this lockout-shortened season. The Panthers finished with a league worst 36 points and a 15-27-6 record. Despite the disappointment, there were some positive signs for the future for this young Panthers team. The promising play of goalie Jacob

strom and Calder-caliber performance of Jonathan Huberdeauprovided a silver lining to the rain cloud of a year. Markstrom took over for veteran Jose Theodore midseason and looked encouraging, posting 3.22 Goals Against Average and an 8-14 record. The rookie Huberdeau was second on the team in points with 31, to go along with 14 goals. In addition, the Panthers have the second overall pick in the 2013 NHL draft, meaning they have an opportunity to land some prized talent. There has been talk that the Panthers are coveting superstar centerman Nathan Mackinnon, who has surefire potential to be a legitimate first line centerman. Mackinnon’s combination of elite skating ability, pure speed

and a scoring touch gives Florida the offensive punch they need and star on a roster that needs one. With an up and coming goalie in place, promising prospect in Markstrom, a solid veteran in Tomas Fleischmann and the No. 2 overall draft pick, the future is looking bright for the Florida Panthers.
