South Florida Honors Veterans

Today, we are honoring the numerous brave men and women that served in the United States Armed Forces. Although Veterans Day was actually yesterday, the day is being observed throughout the United States today. Lots of places in Miami-Dade County are holding events or doing something special to honor all of these courageous individuals.
For those that like the menu offerings of IHOP, the chain is is serving a free Red, White, and Blueberry Pancake Combo to all customers that are veterans or happen to be serving as active duty military until 7 pm tonight. Over in Miami Gardens, the Betty T. Ferguson Recreational Complex Auditorium is having a Veterans Day lunch which is still in effect until 2 pm.
Right here in Miami Beach, the Veterans Day-themed events happened yesterday with military fly-overs in addition to a family picnic. During the events of World War I, Miami Beach’s hotels and beaches were important in serving as home bases for soldiers. Ocean Drive also held its customary parade which today features thousands of participants, a far cry from its initial starts when just fifty people participated.

Miami Makes Its Fishing Debut on Nat Geo Wild

Nature lovers are probably quite familiar with the Nat Geo Network and its host of wildlife-themed television shows. The network recently set its sights on none other than the Magic City of Miami as part of its six-episode series titled “Fish My City”.
“Fish My City” delved deep into Miami’s many waterways and canals as fishermen sought to catch several classic and exotic species of fish. During the Miami episode which aired late last month, fisherman Mike Iaconelli met up with fellow fishing aficionados to catch fish like the exotic midas cichlid and peacock bass as well as South Florida’s popular sea dwellers like the tarpon and snook. Each time the fishermen caught one, Iaconelli would take a moment to explain the fish and its history. For example, the grass carp was a gift of sorts from Asia intended to tackle a weed invasion.
The Miami episode of “Fish My City” has already aired. If you missed it, you can more than likely find it online.

THERAPY-IV Stands Behind Pittsburgh

The country is once again reeling from yet another shooting, this time happening in Pittsburgh. For those that may be unaware, a gunman opened fire at a synagogue called Tree of Life, taking the lives of eleven people and wounding several others. After exchanging gunfire with police, suffering injuries, and eventually surrendering, the gunman was taken into custody. Authorities believe the crime may have been motivated by religious hatred.
Despite verbally expressing his strongly negative opinions of Jewish people, news reports detail that after being injured and being taken to a hospital, the gunman was, in fact, treated by several people who also happened to be of the Jewish faith.
Several South Florida synagogues and organizations of Jewish faith are planning events this week to remember and mourn the victims as well as denounce the massacre that occurred. All of us at THERAPY-IV send our sincerest thoughts and condolences to the victims and families of the Tree of Life shooting.

Halloween in Miami Beach

This week, we once again celebrate Halloween and it’s safe to say Miami Beach is definitely a city that comes to life during this annual celebration. Lincoln Road, in particular, turns into one giant masquerade as people don a series of creative costumes. Let’s explore some of the events going on this week.
Speaking of Lincoln Road, over 45,000 people are expected to be on Miami Beach’s ever-popular promenade and the profusion of bars, restaurants, and cafes will all be great spots to catch a glimpse of what is sure to be an exciting parade of people in different costumes. The Cafe at Books & Books, for example, will be offering a three-course Halloween dinner for $69 with great seating to watch the parade. In keeping with the spooky ambiance, Chotto Matte on Lenox Avenue will be serving certain drinks in a colored test tube.
The examples above barely scratch the surface of what’s in store for anyone visiting Miami Beach for Halloween this year. Have fun!

Dwyane Wade Returns to the Heat

After a long time of waiting to see if he would come back, Dwyane Wade confirmed that he will return to the Miami Heat. He announced that he will be returning for his 16th and final NBA season. Wade spent much of his time during the last couple of months weighing his options whether to retire or come back for one last run. He will have a one year contract for $2.4 million dollars with the Miami Heat. Wade is the Heat leader in points, assists, steals, games played and he has also averaged 22.5 points per game in his career.The Heat signed 19 players for camp and the last spot was reserved for Dwyane Wade, which comes as no surprise considering the impact and history he has had with the Miami Heat franchise.
This season, the Heat will have Wade from the beginning of the season as opposed to last year where he came in mid season from a trade. The plan is to have Wade come off the bench and play 20 to 25 minutes per game. Coach Spoelstra might even have Wade close out games as it’s always been one of his strengths. He could have joined another team but chose not to due to family commitments and wanting to see his son play basketball.
