Scott Sch­nei­der­man, a Michi­gan na­tive who has lived at New River Land­ing for two years, loves the mix of city and laid-back beach vibes. “The thing I like about down­town is it’s young and ur­ban, and it’s easy to meet people. Ev­ery­one is from some­place else. I’ll go to the Him­marshee District to grab a beer and a burger. I like Tar­pon Bend, and Pub­lic House has a great at­mos­phere. An­other hid­den gem is the Down­towner Sa­loon on the New River, which is 40 steps away. … That’s an­other one of the great things: I can walk every­where.”

Rick Mi­jares, man­ag­ing part­ner at the pop­u­lar Las Olas tav­ern Amer­i­can So­cial, says: “Golf and wake­board­ing. Both get me out of the of­fice and help me un­wind from a day at work. In the neigh­bor­hood of Sail­boat Bend, there is a real chill bar that spe­cial­izes in beer called River­side Mar­ket. It is great if you want a low-key evening with friends away from the hus­tle and bus­tle.”

For Ju­lian Siegel, pro­pri­etor of the River­side Mar­ket and Café, fa­vorite things to do are all over town: “Rid­ing bi­cy­cles or boat­ing through down­town with my wife and kids, en­joy­ing ev­ery fes­ti­val and ac­tiv­ity that the city has to of­fer. We live down­town, and we love see­ing the new de­vel­op­ment, from East Las Olas to FAT Vil­lage and every­where in be­tween.”

Sorry, Mr. Sea­gal

OK, when we got wind of the Steven Sea­gal and Thun­der­box tour com­ing to Hard Rock Live, we as­sumed it was some kind of MMAthing. Clearly, we have not been pay­ing at­ten­tion, as it was pointed out that not only has the big-screen tough guy been play­ing gui­tar for­ever, his bluesy 2005 de­but al­bum, “Songs From the Crys­tal Cave,” in­cludes a har­mon­ica solo by Ste­vie Won­der.
