merry & bright

The holidays are my favorite time of the year. How can you not love a season that’s all about family, friends, and tradition? In our multicultural family, we blend Greek and American customs to create a unique celebration that my kids love because it involves Santa Claus visiting twice—on Christmas Eve and on New Year’s Eve. Their M.O. is to dial the big man on a “Santa phone”—making sure Mom and Dad hear—and place their requests. This year, they said, they’re willing to forgo all other gifts if Santa brings a puppy.

Prepare for a party on the West Palm Beach waterfront. A centerpiece of the upcoming Flagler Banyan Square, The Ben West Palm—opening early 2020—will double as the first Autograph Collection hotel in Palm Beach County and the only waterfront hotel downtown. Along with the arrival of fresh accommodations for visitors, locals can expect two new culinary hot spots: Proper Grit, a chef-driven, indoor-outdoor restaurant on the ground floor, and Spruzzo, a lounge and bar adjacent to the cabana-lined rooftop pool. Patrons will be able to board a dedicated express elevator from street level and enjoy sweeping Intracoastal views. The Ben’s origin stories, loosely inspired by Byrd Spilman Dewey’s Ben Trovato estate on Lake Worth Lagoon, purposefully blur the lines between fact and fiction, a complex web of fables meant to entertain visitors…
