Many of us who have chosen the tip of this peninsula as our dwelling place have done so because, well, we like it hot! But as we all know, there are those pesky few days each year when the temperature dips down into the 30s. You may ask, "Is there anything I can do to prepare besides ensuring that I have at least one or two snazzy winter outfits to show off on those days?" The answer is "Yes. Yes, there is."
To ensure that your walls and loins never become as cool as the winter winds, head to Seminole Paradise at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (5804 Seminole Way, Hollywood) on Thursday and grab a copy -- or three (it may be a really cold winter) -- of the 2012 South Florida Firefighters Calendar. Not only will the purchase raise the temperature in your pants but it will raise money for Here's Help, a Safe Haven for Newborns, and Friends Forever rescue charities as well. As a bonus, the calendar hunks will be at the event, live and in the flesh for you to drool over and take photos with. The event is free and begins at 9 p.m. Calendars cost $17. Visit firefighterscalendar.com, or call 954-585-5112.
