The Journey of a Sage: The recently published book by respected and acclaimed Boca-based psychotherapist Kristen Bomas is generating considerable buzz for its thoughtful, accessible approach to understanding and mastering life’s challenges.

Spiked Rich: The experiential dessert and ice cream parlor, which just opened its second South Florida location at Downtown Doral (the first is in Davie), isn’t just for kids.

Better still, for mom and dad, there are alcohol infusions. (spikedrich.com
