Boca Raton & Delray Beach | On The Town in The Palm Beaches

Boca Raton & Delray Beach | On The Town in The Palm Beaches


[Frank] Today, we’re exploring a tale of two
cities. These neighboring coastal towns are full of
charm and creativity. In Boca Raton, we’ll take a nostalgic ride
through the cities’ history. Get our groove on as we take on a ballroom
dance challenge. And it’s no wonder the Delray Beach was voted
most fun small town in America. We’ll visit a spot for vintage arcade games. And indulge in the ultimate comfort food. I’m Frank Licari, join me as we go On the
Town in the Palm Beaches. [Announcer] This program is brought to you
by Discover the Palm Beaches. Visit ThePalmBeaches.TV for more information. Hey, On the Towners, I’m Frank Licari. Today we’re exploring two of Palm Beach county’s
most vibrant cities, Boca Raton and Delray Beach. We’re gonna start in Boca and the first stop
on our adventure is a taste of history on the Boca Express. ♪ Still, you won’t ♪ ♪ Take that train
♪ ♪ Board that flight ♪ ♪ To bring us sailing ♪ We’re on a train right now that feels like
the Rat Pack would come like kinda trouncing through. So tell me just a little bit about where we
are right now. Okay. We’re on two 1947 Budd cars. They’re called the Streamliners. And we used photographs, oral history, in
order to be able to recreate and restore what it would’ve been like if it was 1947 on these
rail cars. The Streamliners introduced the modern era. And they also introduced the art deco era. So when you come in here, you’ll see the fan
tail, and you’ll see the stainless steel. Everything was Streamline, remember, even
your toaster in your kitchen became Streamlined. That’s right, that’s right. And this particular train that we’re in, it’s
kind of, there’s a lot of flowers around. Is there a? Yes. Every train route had a theme, and being on
the Silver Meteor you were taking passengers from New York to Florida, and they wanted
to remind the passengers that you’re going to warm, tropical Warm paradise. [LaurieLynn] Going to paradise! [Frank] That’s right. Welcome aboard, guys. My name is Tyler and I’m the conductor today. [Frank] When the tours come through, tell
me a little bit about what you’re showing. [LaurieLynn] We have one called Ticket to
Ride, where the students dress up as train crew member, or Boca Raton pioneers, and they
take this role on as a passenger and then they come in here and they learn what it was
like to travel in 1947. Oh, thank you very much. Do I just? Take one. Just take, oh, one? Yes. What is this, a French car? I could eat a lot more than that, one?! [LaurieLynn] Also, we try to address as many
of the five senses that we can. When you go into the galley, you’ll smell
something is baking. Oh, yes. So you get a little aroma. The see part we know, because they come in Right. And they see, hopefully, most of them. They’re listening, and what are we missing? Touch. [LaurieLynn] Touch. [Frank] What’re they touching? [LaurieLynn] Well, what’s great about the
train museum is you can touch anything you want. [Frank] Anything?! [LaurieLynn] There’s no, you can’t touch that. [Frank] I am about to get into something that
you’re gonna teach me how to do, which is the Zumba. [Nicole] Yeah, that’s right! [Frank] Well, explain to me how this all evolved,
like the Zumba on the beach, what’re we So, what happened was the city of Boca Raton
wanted to put some fitness on Saturdays, down in Boca Raton and we put it in Sanborn Square
first and then we actually realized that in the middle of the summer, doing Zumba in 90
degree weather wasn’t going to be good. So we brought it over here to the beach and
we figured out that this was such a better venue. People are walking by every Saturday, they
see us, they jump in the next week they take a class. And it’s been going on since 2012, January. Oh, so, it’s successful. Yeah, absolutely. Are you finding as you walk around that people
are more fit now, because of you? Like, do you walk around and the people go,
“Nicole thank you!” You know, I’d like to say that that’s exactly
what’s happened. Yeah! So Boca’s more fit? [Nicole] Absolutely! [Frank] Yeah? [Nicole] Yeah! [Frank] It’s once a week. [Nicole] Yep, once a week. [Frank] Yeah, and it’s all year round? [Nicole] All year round. Even when it’s 102 degrees out. [Frank] You’re still out here? [Nicole] We’re here, we stop the class when
I sweat too much and it’s [Frank] Wow, oh yeah, it gets a little yeah,
yeah. [Nicole] It gets a little slippery, [Frank] Yeah. we have to go. Yeah. How many people about would you say for class
you get in here? [Nicole] From about December, all the way
through February, March, we have about 65 people. [Frank] In one class?! They overflow out here, Whoa! [Nicole] all the way down, all the way up. [Frank] Isn’t that dangerous? Like, we go to a wedding, right? And I’m dancing, I like to take a nice, you
know what I’m saying? Well, when people like you show up? What’s, oh? I do, I do have one thing, where they take
up all the space. I actually have been known to stop the class. [Frank] And that’s it? We have to make people Oh, we gotta give ’em room. [Nicole] Make people get room, [Frank] Right. [Nicole] And then we start again. [Frank] What a work out! How about we head over to Red Reef Park and
take a little dip? Some salt water would sure do me some good. This 67acre oceanfront park spans A1A, with
it’s beach side showing off stunning views and some of the best sand in the county. While the intracostal side boasts the Red
Reef Executive Golf Course. A playground and a raised walkway winding
through a hammock of tropical trees. So, whether you want to surf, fish, or just
take a nature walk, Red Reef Park has you covered. And if that’s not enough, there are lots of
cool family friendly learning activities at the Gumbo Limbo Nature center. Be sure to check out their sea turtle rescue
work. Only in Boca could a retail space become the
defacto town square. Of course, we’re talking about Mizner Park
here, with it’s lush landscape, open spaces, and popular eateries. Whether it’s date night or family night, people
from all over the city gather here for concerts, festivals, outdoor dining and more. Oh, and there’s shopping. Did I mention there’s shopping? In Boca, it’s moved from pastime to art form. Boca Raton is known as the sixth borough thanks
to the large number of New Yorkers who live here. It’s also home to a large Jewish population,
which means if you want a great brisket served New York style, you came to the right place. Mm, I smell things, I smell, what do I smell? I smell history. A lot of history here, right? [Sweta] Yes. [Frank] How long we been here? This location, 20 years. [Frank] 20 years here, but you were somewhere
else before. West Boca. West Boca. Now, why’d you move from West to here? 300 seats to 55 seats. [Frank] Smart man. Yes. [Frank] ‘Cause I noticed you’re running around
like crazy, it’s easier to manage 50 seats, right? [Todd] You decide you want a life, too. [Frank] That’s right. [Todd] So you go from breakfast, lunch, and
dinner. To breakfast and lunch. [Sweta] Correct. [Frank] So if I come to these doors at five
o’ clock, you’re out of luck. [Todd] I’m on the golf course. All right, smart man. You see? What makes a great Jewish deli? Personality. Who’s, yours? Mine. or hers? It’s yours. I’m gonna disagree with you, I like hers too. All right, so it’s your personality. So, when people come in, they’re seeing you,
they’re seeing your face, you’re getting to, you’re shaking hands, you’re greasing palms. Right, you’re here all the time? [Todd] Yeah. [Frank] You guys run it. [Sweta] Absolutely. [Frank] The specialties, I come in here and
you say, all right, you’re gonna be here at Deli On Ryes, what’re you having? [Todd] Well, we make our own briskets here. [Frank] Oh yeah. [Todd] Old fashioned, you know, the way grandma
used to make. [Frank] Sure. [Todd] Fresh turkey, so we cook ’em every
day. Motzah ball soup is the real McCoy. And we have specialty sandwiches, like Reuben’s
and Red Russians and combinations. What is a Red Russian? A Red Russian is Is that redundant? It’s kind of It’s pastrami and turkey, with
coleslaw and Russian dressing. [Frank] That’s a lot of meat there. [Todd] Yeah, well, the people like a lot of
meat. [Frank] Yeah, they do. They do. Do you ever like see somebody you don’t like,
give them a little bit less? Nah, I don’t work that way. Good work! But my wife’s always yelling at me, I’m giving
away too much. Yeah, always yelling. [Frank] Never give away too much of the meat. [Todd] ‘Cause they end up taking it home with
them and they have dinner. [Frank] Well, that’s okay. [Todd] But that’s not But it makes them remember
you, they come [Frank] Exactly. [Both Together] And one, two, three. One, two Oh, so smooth! Good job, how did you do that, what are you
doing? I’m going to teach you. Oh I get to do that. Exactly what to do Okay, I want that. You, what, chacha first thing you do in the
morning? Well, the older students, they all know when
they come in, they’re got to start learning immediately. [Frank] Right, there’s no learning at the
beginning. It’s definitely Salsa first, salsa. [Frank] Salsa first? Oh yes, it’s a warm up. [Frank] Why, why Salsa? Because of the hip region? Or the shoulder. What is it, what’s happening? [Ivan] People come like, you know, sometimes
they come for actual dancing, they just need to like you know, a getaway. So it just shakes ’em up. I just keep doing this. Oh yeah. And she just turns. She’s got the hard work and I’m just doing
this. So, give me a little bit about you, because
you’ve been everywhere. Right? Russia, Belgium, where else? [Ivan] Poland, Amsterdam, and then moved to
the States five years ago. [Frank] And always dancing. [Ivan] Always dancing. [Frank] Dancing the whole time. [Ivan] Since six years old. When did you, since six?! You’ve been ballroom dancing since six years

many lessons a week, what do you teach? What’s going on? [Ivan] I teach over 50 lessons a week, basically
every day, six days a week. It’s all private, or is it group as well or
both? There’s group classes, but most of them are
private lessons. Gotcha, so you must have a lot of good clients
here. Yes, they love it. It’s a beautiful studio. [Frank] Right, it is gorgeous here. [Ivan] Boca Raton is amazing. [Frank] Right in the town center, you can
get to it easy. So you’re dancing like 12 hours a day. Yeah. That’s why you’re such in good shape. That’s not, that’s why I’m not. [Both] One, two, three. And turn. One, two, three. You turn. [Both] One, two, three. Go, one, two, three! Yes! Oh man! That was a first try! You’re good man! Rain check my wife up, you go right ahead,
no hair she’s a red head. [Name] We first opened our doors September
of 2015. Rolling, through the roof, through the roof. We’re on our fourth year. How many, and what do you seat here? We seat roughly People come in [Nicole] 285, we have shows typically from
Thursday through Sunday, and we have shows Monday through Wednesday. Oh wow, so you’re all through the week then. Busy all week. Wow. [Nicole] To be honest, there’s a show for
everyone. We do comedy. [Frank] Comedy, stand up comedy. Any shows I can bring the family, or are we
pretty much talking 18 and over? No, we definitely have familyfriendly shows,
occasionally, we’ll have magic shows. We have hypnotist shows. Some are family friendly, others are adult
only. Gotcha. [Nicole] Prices are pretty affordable, tickets
can range between 25 to 75 dollars, depending on the act. Whew, Boca, cheap? Right? I think so. Yeah. [Nicole] We have a beer and wine bar. [Frank] Beer and wine, nice. [Nicole] Guests can actually drink throughout
the entire show and also we offer a special feature, where during the show, they can actually
text their order to the bar. They don’t have to get out of their seats. They don’t even have to get up?! [Nicole] Nope! [Frank] Lazy and drunk at the same time, that’s
fantastic, makes it funnier, makes people funnier. Crazy Uncle Mike’s, and you’re Crazy? Crazy, crazy what? Yeah. Can I call you by your first name, can I just
call you Crazy the rest of the time? [Mike] Yeah, if you like. All right. So this place strikes me as, you were sitting
around one day, you were at a place and you were like, I don’t like anywhere I’m going,
I’m gonna create a place that I would want be at. Right? [Mike] Yeah. [Frank] Am I right about that? [Mike] Yeah, everything I do is like that. [Frank] You’ve got brews, bites, and beats. [Mike] It’s important. [Frank] Yeah. [Mike] Those are three important things in
life, serious. [Frank] How do you come to this? I like things that evolve around music. And I like to go places that evolve around
music. Are you a musician? No, I’m not. I’m just a music lover. Whoa! You’re just a lover of music? Yes. [Frank] Well, now it’s one thing to listen
to music and have a beer, it’s another thing to go, I’m gonna open a place up in the middle
of Boca. And it’s gonna have food, ’cause that’s a
whole other responsibility, how’s that happen? [Mike] I’ve been in this business all my life. [Frank] Oh, you have? [Mike] Yeah, so this is what I’ve been doing. I build, I design, and I operate. [Frank] Okay. [Mike] Get printed in places. You don’t just make a little venue, you get
yourself a huge space here. How many people can you put in here? [Mike] It’s a 200 person capacity. [Frank] 200? [Mike] Yeah. [Frank] And you’ve got a brewery. [Mike] Got a beautiful brewery and the beer
that we’re making is incredible too. [Frank] Talk about the food a little bit,
when I come in here, is it pub fair pretty much, but it’s elevated. [Mike] We wanted to have quality products,
so we call it fun dining, instead of fine dining, but it’s the quality of fine dining,
so it’s the same kind of preparation it would take to make the fine dining meal, but we
do it in a simplified product. [Frank] Boca Raton sure is fun, but let’s
not stop here. Let’s head over to Delray Beach. If you enjoyed Boca’s parks and beaches, you’ll
love Delray Beach. Boca’s colorful neighbor to the north is packed
with a vibrant cultural and dining scene. Let’s begin at the historic downtown area
on Atlantic Avenue. Now, how long have you been in this position
here? I’ve been in this position for three years
now. Three years? Three years, I’m born and raised here in Delray. Oh, so that’s how you know all the history. Yes. [Frank] The arts seems to be a huge portion
of Delray, a lot of arts here, right? [Jamael] When you have a lot of things from
the preforming arts, to the visual arts. The renovations of Old School Square, which
was an elementary school that my grandparents, my great grandparents went to. Deserted for awhile, and I think the birth
of our CRA and rebuilding that Cultural Arts Center really sparked a lot of redevelopment
in Delray. [Frank] It was just voted one of America’s
most fun cities to be in, right? [Jamael] There’s a playground for all age
and races and everything. You can come down and really walk the stretch
of Atlantic Avenue and just pop in in any restaurant and bar. And everything is packed and happening. We have a program here called the Downtowners,
it was small, little makeshift golf carts. That will pick you up and give you free rides
all throughout the down town. We have the trolley service, nice little trolley
that just rides up and down Atlantic Avenue is free. [Frank] So that makes it a lot easier, even
for tourists to come in, they can center themselves in a hotel here, and they can experience the
entire town. You’ve got fine dining, quick bites. You’ve got art galleries, you’ve got chocolate
shops. There’s so much going on. And everything is so compact and it’s centrally
located. In the 1940’s, pin ball machines were considered
illegal, that’s because they were deemed a game of chance. Like gambling, not a game of skill. But there are some people at the Silverball
Museum who would disagree with that. I’m here with Rob, you are the owner and founder? Yes. How did you manage to retain all of your youth? Because as I walk in here, it’s like 1985
all over again. What gave you the idea for this? I grew up at the Jersey Shore, in Longbranch,
West Longbranch, New Jersey. Pinball was part of the culture down on the
boardwalks of New Jersey. My oldest daughter has autism, and she took
to a pinball machine. Fantastic. About 20 years ago, so I started collecting
games. One led to two, two led to 20, there’s about
900 total games in the collection now. Explain this to me, ’cause I got a 10 year
old, and they love like the Xbox and the whole thing right. When they come in here, the kids are digging
the pinball machines? [Robert] Oh, sure, yeah. [Frank] That’s fantastic. [Robert] We have video ski ball, shuffleboard,
air hockey, you know, all fun. And this is a lot cleaner and classier than
the ones I went to when I was growing up. Yeah, and we try to do nostalgia, the stools
here are from the Howard Johnson back in the 40’s. The candy wheels are from the Asbury Park
Boardwalk. [Frank] And I would imagine you’ve got a cross
section, ’cause you obviously you said you do kids, you obviously bring families in here. [Robert] Yeah, we say kids of all ages have
a great time. [Frank] Speaking of arcades, Delray Beach
was once a winter hotspot for artists, authors, and all kinds of creative types. I’m told they held court at a secret speakeasy. And if the tales are true, the Arcade Taproom
even had a secret tunnel running next door to the Colony Hotel. We are going to the Arcade Taproom building. The Arcade Taproom is being restored to it’s
former glory. At one point, the place to go in Delray Beach. Very famous, lot of famous people hung out
here. It’s built in 1925, by, designed by Sam Ogren
local famous architect. Opened up as the Arcade Taproom in 1932, just
before prohibition ended. Opened as a restaurant, and it was openair. So there was no roof in the middle of the
arcade. And there were local businesses that were
set up around the outside of it. There were rumors that yes, there was a tunnel
under here, during prohibition. It’s just rumors as far as we know, there’s
no hard evidence of that. But it makes a great story. The trolley rides of Delray Beach Historical
Society Popcorn House are doing the historical trolley rides through Delray Beach. Atlantic Avenue was and is the hub of activity
in Delray Beach, so plenty of the stops are along Atlantic Avenue. The Arcade building is one of them. And so you can come here and see it yourself
and learn about the history of Delray and the Taproom. ♪ You can cook it in a kitchen ♪ ♪ Cook
it down the hall ♪ ♪ There’s one big lovin’ ♪ ♪ There’s enough for us all ♪ ♪ Sunday
afternoon ♪ [Frank] Grab your reusable shopping bags,
because every Saturday over 60 vendors hit Old School Square for a lively market, filled
with South Florida’s best produce, gourmet foods, and homemade goodies. You’ll find international cuisine and artistic
treasures. There’s even live music. But don’t take my word for it. Let’s hear from one vendor who’s serving up
a taste of Africa. There’s a world of vendors that are here. Different countries, different foods, different
arts and crafts, homemade things, brings out the community, which is awesome. The people are friendly, it’s dog and pet
friendly, so you see them coming about. They will have activities, there’s music that
takes place as well. It’s awesome. It’s a great place to come out and enjoy the
market. We have programs and activities that I create,
indoor and outdoor. We have drum circles, Square Play activities
for all the community to come and enjoy. What is Square Play? Square Play is when you bring out gigantic
mega games, and kids come out in the park and play. We have monthly events, Kids Fests in October. We have fitness in the park on Wednesday night. [Frank] What’s that entail? It’s Boom Fitness Boom?! That sounds big too, what’s a Boom Fitness,
show me. [Abby] Boom Fitness is just working out and
we actually have Boom Fitness in several parks in Delray Beach. [Frank] Okay, a lot of Boom going on. [Abby] Lot of Boom [Frank] Now, workouts, what do they entail,
could somebody of my, of my stature participate in that, or do you think I really don’t need
it? You probably could Be honest. work out a little bit. I probably could work out a little bit, that’s
a good point, Abby. Good point. Don’t get old! [Frank] We called this the Cabbage Patch in
the 80s. Didn’t we? In the days of Take it all the way around. Mm, and your life would never be the same! [Abby] Outdoor Tai Chi, anyone can come in
and participate in it. [Frank] And people just show up. [Abby] Yep, they just show up and do [Frank] Don’t need to have a ticket, don’t
need to pay, they just show up and have Tai Chi. [Abby] Correct. [Frank] Fantastic. [Abby] And we also have Zumba. [Frank] What?! [Abby] The best Zumba class. [Frank] The best? [Abby] The best. [Frank] Ever?! The biggest Zumba class you ever saw? [Abby] Yes, it’s the best, biggest Zumba class. Wow! Bam! Isn’t that what you? Ready for some culinary creativity? Just west of the downtown Delray Beach area,
this dining hotspot wants to surprise guests with a modern and playful menu. Let’s see what’s cooking at Mia Kitchen and
Bar. I love the lighting. I love the decor. I love the layout, and I interview a lot of
chefs on this show, but you, one of the hippest ones I’ve seen. You got everything goin, you got the flat
brim, you got the nice full beard, you got the funky shoes, what’s happening, tell me
your story. [Jason] I started dish washing at the age
of 12, getting involved with chefs in local restaurants and food, so. I saw the way that they acted in the kitchen
and how passionate they were, and I kind of went along with that and kind of wanted to
do it. [Frank] You got the bug. I took a piece of everything, created my own
style, and now you’re looking at it. Hip and humble, two very rare qualities for
an executive chef, you know that. So, in a diner, why are they always grape
jellies that they give you, why don’t you get other ones? That’s grape right? Wine is made from I know how wine is made. [Frank] What’s your tagline? [Jason] I’d like to say that it’s, nostalgic
and allinclusive. For example, you could be 18 years old, taking
your grandmother out to dinner. You could be eating an octopus with foam,
foie gras peanut butter and jelly, slowbraised veal cheeks, and your grandmother could sit
across from you and have chicken parm or chicken picatta, it’s very inclusive. Do you really use the cheeks? Is that what it Correct, right here. Really, wow. Slowbraised, just like a short rib but richer. Yeah, I’m not quite sure I’ll ever eat that
again, but all right, that’s good. I’m glad people like that. This is a huge space. [Daniel] Yeah, I took a chance. So you start like a little art colony. Yes. Now, do you, do you get into art, do you do
anything? I do a little bit, my dad’s a painter. Oh is that right? Yeah, so I have a few pieces around. So you got it in the blood. Now what do you do, do you do, what is your
thing? I just paint acrylic. Watercolors? [Frank] Acrylic. So you get together with all these artists,
now, I notice as we walk around here, you’ve got like little art studios where people can
come in and paint. It’s not just a gallery. [Daniel] No, I have about 19 studios where
the artists come in and out regularly during the day, and they paint and they create. And it’s, it is a community, they all work
together, they’ll help each other all the time. It’s really good. How big of a space we got here? We got about 11,000 inside, another 3,000
out in the lagoon area. Now, I don’t know if the audience at home
knows this, but both Dan and I, we got skates on. Now, I know you’re probably wondering why
we have skates on. I have no idea why we have skates on. But we’re gonna do this We get around faster. This one, somebody took off her face and went,
“Look at me, I just pulled my face off!” Ready? Oh! That was pretty close. So you’re the judge. I am curator, yes. Wow, so you look at something and you go,
“No thank you.” I say, you’re almost there. Wow! Now here’s another Italian, Rocco Grosso. [Frank] You’re doing all the metal and all
that stuff? [Rocco] I do all the mobiles. [Frank] Mobiles, look at this! I know, I know. Precision, excellent. All right, hook it up on your wire. Yeah. Okay. All done. And, here, you got it balanced. Now, in the event it wasn’t balanced, look,
if it was Don’t, leave it, it’s perfect! Why, I got it perfect, why you gotta I don’t know! Rocco, what’re you doing? And there you go. I got it perfect! Good. Now, we’re gonna get our hands dirty. Aw man, together? We can do it together. Oh, aw man. This is like Lady and the Tramp, we’re gonna
finish in the, all right, all right. That’s fine if you want to. So lets go in, mix it all in. Just do it, oh, oh wow. [Frank] At the Ramen Lab eatery in Delray. You are the owner, [Louis] Yes. [Frank] The founder. [Lous] Yes. You make the noodles. Yes. Now, what possessed you to get into this type
of business? A little bit of the history, I was born into
it. Easy, family’s always been in the restaurant
business. [Frank] Right. I’ve always wanted to get out of the restaurant
business, but here I am today. But they pulled you back in. Yeah. [Frank] And you guys are the first ramen place
in Delray Beach. [Louis] First one in Delray, and first one
in Boca. [Frank] Cornering the market. [Louis] Yeah. [Frank] And how’s it been going? [Louis] Going pretty good, getting the word
out there. It’s a very seasonal market, but people when
they come in, they love it. A lot of people are like, what’s ramen, what’s
raymen? Yeah, raymen. People are always new to the cuisine, so. Right, you gotta educate them while they’re
eating. Oh man, look at that side arm. Yeah. Thank you. I played for pro, I don’t know if I told you
that. [Louis] I see it. [Frank] Obviously, it’s a restaurant where
families come in together, right? You gotta have a lot of families here? [Louis] Oh, we do. [Frank] ‘Cause it’s a safe type of food. [Louis] It is, it’s a comfort type of food. [Frank] That’s what it is. [Louis] It’s like Japanese, we call it Ramen
Lab, because it’s a laboratory. [Frank] I was going to say, where does the
laboratory come in? It’s because we have a little bit of a mixed
background, like Korean style in it, Thai style in it, a tiny bit of Chinese, but at
the end of the day, we try to make it authentic as possible. So the diversity makes the laboratory, there’s
not like people back there in white coats and stuff, like mixing things, right? [Louis] Oh, we have a little bit of that. [Frank] You have a little bit of that? [Louis] Yeah, we have a little bit of that. All right, so hey, how are you? So this is Louis, he’s the owner, but I just
made this. I made your ramen. Okay? Okay this was like, I wanna, I’m gonna watch. We’ve got a camera here. You’re gonna try the ramen, because I made
this myself. Gotta get in there, I may not have separated
the noodles, okay, all right. Very good! Good, right?! Very good! Just salty enough. [Michael] We get anywhere from 50 to 300 people, [Frank] Wow! [Michael] That show up at the downtown Delray
Beach Drum Circle every Wednesday, to drum, dance, do acroyoga, other types of artistic
expression. [Frank] Sure, whatever they wanna do. You get kids around too? Lots of kids, people of all ages. How do you get the word out? Do you just sit in the middle of town square
and beat your drum and people show up? Facebook and Meetup and the word spreads. [Frank] So there’s no rules, you bring whatever
drum you want. [Michael] Any kind of percussion that you
feel fits in, you wanna try to fit in, we want to try to, even though we’re not a group
or a band, we want to try to make music together if we can. Of course! And Follow a common rhythm. OF course. Whatever those rhythms are, it’s very organic,
it’s very natural, we don’t practice ahead of time. Sure. Whatever comes out of the moment. For the energy of the night. It’s a mecca of every age and every possible
concept. [Frank] And it’s really, really positive. That’s wonderful. Yeah! [Frank] Boca Raton is laid back luxury, that
welcomes everyone with it’s glistening beaches, array of dazzling Restaurants and upscale
shopping. While Delray Beach has you covered With it’s
lively main street, family friendly attractions, and rich Florida history. So whether your workout takes you to the sun
kissed beach, or you’re experience train travel from the 1940’s, taking a stroll on the historic
Atlantic Avenue, or dancing to the beat of drums under a moonlit sky. These neighboring sister cities have something
for everyone. I’m Frank Licari, we hope you enjoyed discovering
