Editor’s Letter: Read All About It

Over the course of my first year at Lifestyle, we’ve had the pleasure of presenting hundreds of stories in our magazines, stories that hopefully have delivered insights into the people and businesses that add to the flavor of South Florida communities from Delray Beach to Miami.

We’ve written about chefs, bartenders, restaurateurs and a barbecue sauce mogul. We’ve interviewed a playwright, a Hollywood actress, a Hollywood actor and an Elvis impersonator. We’ve profiled a college football coach, a kickboxing legend, a golf Hall of Famer and a World Series hero. We’ve shed light on cancer survivors, veterans dealing with PTSD, children with HIV and a shark attack victim. We’ve showcased a champion of female empowerment, the reigning queen of horse racing—and one Real Housewife.

But as deadline passes, and our magazines head to the printer, we’re often left with the same feeling: We could have done more.

To that end, we’re excited to present the first edition of Lifestyle Extra, which promises weekly glimpses into the world of Lifestyle and communities throughout the tri-county region. We’ll share featured stories from the current issue, spotlight the hottest weekend events, offer behind-the-scene peeks into our fashion and photo shoots, present bonus excerpts from our best interviews—and even give you early glimpses at new fashion, beauty and retail products.

Welcome to Lifestyle Extra!

A couple of months ago, someone posed this question on reddit.com/florida: “Why is Florida’s music industry so weak?” In case you missed the point, they continued, “I don’t think Florida has a very consolidated music scene. It almost feels like folks here are mostly thrilled by novelty and high-energy eccentricity.” Well, ouch. We may not
