Yo Cuz! Why you gonna move to SoBe?
Steve Martorano is unarguably Broward County's most colorful restaurateur. For more than two decades, Cafe Martorano has been turning out Philadelphia-style Italian comfort food with a side of entertainment.

No matter the time of day or night, the restaurant, located on East Oakland Park Boulevard, is packed to the rafters with a lively mix of locals, snowbirds, and celebrities who come for the cook's meatball salad and stay for his DJ skills.

But everything evolves, and it seems like Martorano is contemplating moving Cafe Martorano to South Beach.

American Social was the scene of an armed robbery.

Early this morning (Friday, February 7 at around 1 a.m.), three armed suspects approached two employees at the rear of American Social Bar & Restaurant.

According tho the City of Fort Lauderdale Police Department, the suspects "brandished firearms and demanded their belongings." After taking the contents of an employee's pants pockets (a cell phone, cash, and car keys), the suspects jumped into a white, four-door Stratus and drove away.

Red's not his color.
Unless you live under a rock, you've seen Justin Bieber's mug shot. The pictures, taken by Miami-Dade Corrections instead of the usual paparazzi, show the singer in red jail garb instead of his usual baggy jeans and tank top.

Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach after police witnessed two luxury sports cars drag-racing on a residential street. Bieber was booked on charges of DUI, driving with an expired license, and resisting an officer without violence. His bond is listed at $2,500.

CityWalk is getting a face-lift.
If you're a South Floridian like us, chances are you've got an annual pass to at least one Orlando attraction. The ride to middle Florida is relatively short, hotels are inexpensive, and there's always something to do. Plus, roller coasters, superheroes, and people in giant animal heads never get old -- do they?

That's why Universal Orlando's planned CityWalk expansion is such good news. The mega-attraction that caters to a slightly more adult crowd than the other "mouse-related" resort is especially exciting for food lovers.
