LET­TER FROM THE PUB­LISHER

Ocean Drive - - Contents -

An­other March, an­other Win­ter Mu­sic Con­fer­ence, Ul­tra, and Mi­ami Open for the books. And while we’ve said say­onara to the ac­com­pa­ny­ing megas­tars (we’ll see you next year, Roger Federer and Carl Cox), don’t close up your cal­en­dars just yet, be­cause the Magic City is about to get even hot­ter.

That’s be­cause some of the big­gest names in coun­try mu­sic are mak­ing their way to the sands of Fort Laud­erdale for the fifth an­nual Tor­tuga Mu­sic Fes­ti­val. From April 7 to 9, you’ll be ser­e­naded by chart-top­ping coun­try croon­ers like Luke Bryan, Kenny Ch­es­ney, Chris Sta­ple­ton, and so many more. Talk about fun in the sun. And for all the base­ball fans out there, be sure to get your tick­ets to wit­ness our Mi­ami Mar­lins take on the Atlanta Braves in the home opener on April 11.

If kick­ing back and re­lax­ing is more your thing, there’s no bet­ter way to un­wind (and cel­e­brate Earth Month) than on the sands of our beau­ti­ful beaches, which at­tract peo­ple from across the globe. And while you’re loung­ing by the water, make sure you have a copy of this is­sue (and per­haps a cock­tail) in hand to get the lat­est on our cover star: ac­tor, au­thor, and ac­tivist Joe Man­ganiello. When he’s not star­ring in ma­jor films like Magic Mike or this month’s Smurfs: The Lost Vil­lage, he’s ded­i­cat­ing his time to a va­ri­ety of non­prof­its and en­joy­ing mar­ried life with the ir­re­sistible and hi­lar­i­ous Mod­ern Fam­ily star Sofia Ver­gara. We’re hon­ored to be able to share his story with you this month.

So whether you nosh on hot dogs at the ball­park, dance all day and into the night to top coun­try tunes, or lounge by the beach, I hope you take a few days (maybe even the en­tire month) to ex­plore our mar­velous city. I know I cer­tainly will.

I hope to see you around town…
