July/August Culture Spotlight


July/August Culture Spotlight

By Lauren Brown | June 23, 2015 | Culture

The latest in culture.

Seattle’s Best

After more than 20 million albums sold worldwide, grungeera rockers Alice in Chains and singer/songwriter/guitarist Jerry Cantrell are still hitting the road. For more than 25 years, the band has played to a diehard fan base that supported Alice in Chains’ evolution through the group’s epic highs and lows. With William DuVall now on lead vocals (lead singer Layne Staley died of a drug overdose in 2002), they visit South Florida on August 11, one of 19 stops on their tour on the heels of their Grammy-nominated album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, which includes the hit singles “Hollow” and “Stone.” Look for the group to also play a number of classics from their earlier albums. Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood, 866-502-7529

In the Zone

Fresh off its success at its main Aventura location and satellite venues across South Florida—and newly opened in the gym at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach— Stretch Zone is a practitioner-assisted stretching program that promises to help you “stretch back the years.” Instead of pulling on your limbs, Stretch Zone works with the central nervous system to increase and maintain your range of motion, make you more physically fit, relax muscles, and relieve soreness. “This method rests on the notion that manipulating the muscles’ nervous energy is a major key to unlocking the body’s functional flexibility,” explains founder and CEO Jorden “Stretch” Gold. 2148 W. Dixie Hwy., Aventura; Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 4441 Collins Ave., 305-538-2000

Rekindling the Flame

It’s been 45 years since Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal starred together in the quintessential romantic movie Love Story, and fans are fi nally getting the reunion they’ve been waiting for: MacGraw and O’Neal are joining the national tour of the Broadway hit Love Letters. “I was never able to forget Love Story; I still carry a torch,” says O’Neal. Love Letters, which marks O’Neal’s theater debut, spans 50 years, following a couple that should have been together but end up living separate lives. Says MacGraw, “Love Letters is a whole life lived, a long and complicated, moving series of incidents and feelings and intimacies that are ultimately wonderful theater.” July 21–26 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, 201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale, 800-745-3000

Set Sail

Club members get unparalleled access to captained Hinckley Yachts for half- or full-day cruising around the bay. Membership includes a private concierge to help with all planning as well as access to fleets in all locations, including Palm Beach, Naples, and Boca Grande.
