What is it about a New Year that is so exhilarating? Maybe it’s that we are given a clean slate; the opportunity to be the best version of ourselves in the year that follows. We promise to be healthier and make choices that will lead to a more satisfying life. Well, here, in the heart of Fort Lauderdale’s Art & Entertainment District, we salute your initiative and share your enthusiasm. We also encourage you to try new things in 2019: learn something new; broaden your perspective on a subject; explore a new art form; or better yet, try them all and everything else you can. To simplify for you, we have curated incredible performances, memorable exhibits and intriguing lectures in this e-blast. But these are just the start. For a complete calendar of all the happenings in The District, please visit www.riverwalkae.com.
