Don’t be a fool this April! There are many events worth checking out this week in Palm Beach County.

On April 6th, it’s The Modern Show, an art show at Studio 1608.  See the artworks at 1608 South Dixie in West Palm Beach. The event is sponsored by Piper’s Angel Foundation and will feature 25 to 40 artists at the exhibition – it’s not to be missed!

A great event for the whole family.
A great art show for a great cause.

Make your reservations now for All That Jazz with Nancy Kelly at the Arts Garage, Friday April 7th at 8 PM – a wonderful way to spend an evening.

A fun night out for sure.

If it’s bluegrass you’re interested in, at the Pavilion at the Flagler Museum on Saturday April 8th at 3 in afternoon, enjoy Dailey and Vincent! Get your tickets in advance – it should be a good one.

A great reason to get out and enjoy the sun.
Bluegrass music at the Flagler Museum can’t be beat.

If you haven’t been before, on Saturdays only from 9 AM until 1 in the afternoon through April 22nd we have the West Palm Beach Green Market. There is free parking in the Evernia city garages and Banyan parking. It has some of the best produce and wonderful gourmet goodies. I strongly suggest you go down there before it ends.

I’ve been a fan of  Michael Feinstein since he was 20 years old!

My movie pick of the week: Frantz, a film that takes place during the aftermath of World War I. Extremely moving – it was filmed in Germany and France.

Frantz – a film with intrigue and emotional sensitivity.

As April brings in the flowers and wonderful scents of spring, wear your brights, your lights, and your beautiful pastels.

Have some fun in the sun!
In between buzzing around town, a little R&R in the Florida sun.

March Madness

I may not be in “New York, New York,” but it certainly felt like I was a few nights ago at The Kravis. Billy Stritch and Carole Bufford did a tribute to Kander and Ebb with Marissa Mulder! I really do live in a town that never sleeps…

I attended the Cultural Council of Palm Beach’s Culture & Cocktails: Art & Architecture, featuring an interview with the director of the Hearst Foundation, Gilbert C. Maurer, and spotted my client wearing one of my designer jackets! Shirley Cowan looks fabulous as always, especially in leopard.

People come from all over the world for our Palm Beach parties, and this time locals and visitors alike were lining the streets of West Palm Beach for the Evening on Antique Row. There were fabulous food trucks, amazing entertainment, and each antique filled boutique was serving tasty treats. Guests enjoyed exquisite artwork while listening to live music as they strolled up and down Antique Row.

On March 14th I watched Jill Switzer and her trio perform at her brand new CD Release Party at the Colony Hotel. I am so proud to have witnessed the expansion of her phenomenal singing career. She is not only generous with sharing her talent, but made sure her event was for a great cause – proceeds helped benefit the Society for the Preservation of the Great American Songbook. Rich Switzer was on piano and sax, Paul Shewchuk was on bass and Cielo Blue played on drums.

The fun didn’t stop there and the art and culture continued, to a ‘tea.’ I took a collage master class from world famous artist Bruce Helander, and created a piece I’m calling “Mad Hatters Tea Party.”


Bonnie and artist Bruce Helander. 

I was also able to enjoy the culture of France without leaving Florida, thanks to a fundraiser for the Palm Beach Theater Guild. ‘Nights in Paris’ brought to life Paris’s historic and vivid arts and culture scene – it felt like we were at the Moulin Rouge. C’est magnifique!


Nights in Paris – The Opera, Salons and the Moulin Rouge

As I march toward the end of the month, I’ll be enjoying the sweet sounds of the Kravis Pops Orchestra in the Dreyfoos Concert Hall, directed by Michael Feinstein on Wednesday, March 30th. I’ve known Michael since before he recorded his first album, and now he’s a multiple Grammy-award winner. I am so proud to witness all of his success, and call myself a friend and fan for so many years.

As a big finish to all the March Madness, I’m lucky enough to see a comedian for the big finale. Just like her ‘pop’ George Carlin, I’m hoping Kelly Carlin live on Thursday the 31st will mean March will go out like a lion – since we’ll all be roaring with laughter!
