Staff Picks: a bakery, a show + a staff UN-pick

Bakery of France

Picked by Stefanie Cainto, Web Editor

“My favorite place in South Florida to get freshly baked pastries and a good cup of cappuccino in the morning. After spending a month studying in Paris, I was convinced there was no place in America that could produce croissants as well as the French do … until I found the French in America. Bakery of France is authentic and lovely in all ways.”

It’s a Wonderful Life

Picked by John Thomason, Assistant Editor

“What are the holidays without Frank Capra’s moving vision of angelic intervention? Unless you’re a scrooge, it’s difficult to be tired of this story, especially when there are unique local ways to experience it. Tonight (Dec. 19), Arts Garage concludes its Radio Theater production of It’s a Wonderful Life, complete with vintage sound effects created live onstage, and actors reading from radio scripts. And if you want to see the film version looking more beautiful than ever, Cinemark Palace in Boca Raton will screen an HD print at 2 p.m. Sunday (Dec. 21).”

Staff UN-pick: Cafe Bleu

We all used to love to go to Spot Coffee for our off-site meetings. You ran into a million people you knew, it was always buzzing, the people who worked there were nice. But what’s with Bleu? We say eeewww. Snarky you-are-not worthy attitude from the counter people, long waits, bad vibe.
