What’s HOT South Florida (5/02 -5/08)
Last Thursday started out with the Quarterly GLBX luncheon at the beautiful B Ocean Hotel with guest speakers Ralph Quintero of the Great Business Project who spoke very eloquently about being successful in business and from whom I felt I learned a lot in a short amount of time. Congrats to the Chamber for another very fabulous event.
Also that day was "Dinning Out For Life" and many Broward restaurants participated to raise much needed money for Broward House.On Saturday, there were many events that I will sum up by saying: Bear Invasion, Nina Flowers and Inferno Puerto Rico. On Sunday, there were also many events. The morning started out with the annual Miami AIDS walk, which once again was a huge success and raised tens of thousands of dollars for Care Resource.
The afternoon was so beautiful I headed over to the busy pool party at Depot (where else can you lay by a pool all afternoon and there is no cover and great music) to see my buddy DJ Scott Mann spin away to the delight of the crowd.Remember the pool at Depot is open 7 days a week, so take advantage! In the late afternoon, I was back to Miami for the official Aqua Girl Kickoff party at the Palace.
Later that night, my buddy AJ Reddy started a new Sunday night party at Score entitled Seduction Sundays, so if you want to be seduced every Sunday and hear the beats of AJ, check it out, its fantastic!

Gatsby -- This is HOT!
"The Great Gatsby" writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann and collaborators Shawn "JAY Z" Carter, an executive producer on the film, and Anton Monsted, its executive music supervisor, revealed the lineup for the movie's soundtrack, which encompasses the broad spectrum of musical styles represented in this energetic re-telling of the classic text.
"The Great Gatsby" follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
Academy Award® nominee DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby, with Tobey Maguire starring as Nick Carraway; Oscar® nominee Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton as Daisy and Tom Buchanan; Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke as Myrtle and George Wilson; and newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker. Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan will play the role of Meyer Wolfsheim.
The highly eclectic soundtrack also features songs performed by such artists as Beyoncé, André 3000; Fergie + Q Tip + GoonRock; Coco O. of Quadron, Gotye; Nero; Florence + The Machine, Lana Del Rey, Nero, will.i.am, and Sia
The CD will be available starting May 9th with the film opening on May 10, 2013, the film will be distributed in 3D and 2D by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures. The trailer can be viewed at TheGreatGatsbyMovie.com.
