CurbStand: Valet without the cash.
This has probably happened to you. In a cashless society where you can buy your coffee with a credit card (or your phone), you valet park your car --only to find you have no cash to get your car out of auto-prison. Do you run for the nearest ATM? Borrow from your date? Beg your server for cash in exchange for a padded tip?

The CurbStand app wants to solve this most vexing of problems by allowing you to park, pay for, and retrieve your car from your phone.

Have You Heard the Rumor About Le Tub Saloon Closing?

By now, everyone in Broward County has heard the rumor: Hollywood's well-known and beloved Le Tub Saloon is closing.

The rumors have something to do with the impending Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort complex (1111 N. Ocean Drive, Hollywood) set to open later this year across the street off the beach boardwalk. Over the course of the past year, it's become a source of contention for neighboring businesses that are both weary of the construction and upheaval and excited for the influx of tourists and business the resort will bring to the area.

It's probably a scene Le Tub founding owner Russell Kohuth may have never imagined. He originally purchased the property in 1974 -- what was once a Sunoco gas station situated on the Intracoastal Waterway -- converting it into a waterside restaurant decorated with driftwood, toilets, tubs, sinks, and random nautical treasures. For many years after, it survived as a quaint and quirky locals' hangout where the ambiance was always relaxed and eccentric, perfect for the Hollywood crowd.

Grab a free small Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee next week.
For so many people across the country, spring can mean many different things: rising temperatures, the beginning of baseball season, or shedding the winter weight so you can fit into your favorite swimsuit.

And of course, it signals the return of a number of warm-weather beverages, which, if you're caffeine-addicted, includes iced coffee.

Even if our winter was short-lived (and tolerable), we can still cash in on the annual Dunkin' Donuts springtime deal. For one day next week, all South Florida Dunkin' Donuts restaurants will welcome the season with free iced coffee.

In a city thick with trendy tasting menus, pricey gastropubs, and crafty concepts, deciding where to dine out in Delray Beach can be almost as grueling as battling the in-season crowds on a Saturday night.

Luckily, Delray's dining scene is expanding beyond the eastern downtown area. The 2-month-old Apeiro Kitchen & Bar, for instance, is located in the Delray Marketplace shopping plaza where Atlantic Avenue meets Lyons Road just west of Florida's Turnpike.
