64. Join a CSA (community-supported agriculture program).

Always buy produce from your local farmers, like the Urban Farmer in Pompano Beach. Farm-fresh eggs are a party in your mouth!

If you really want to know what's going on around here, stick your nose in Broward Times, the Homeless Voice, the South Florida Gay News, and/or browardbulldog.org. But mostly, New Times.

66. Master stand-up paddleboarding or kitesurfing.

67. Tour Fort Lauderdale — by gondola.

Las Olas Gondola offers a luxurious homes and gardens tour, or "Lovely Romantico," which includes a message in a bottle. The gondolier provides Italian music, ice buckets, glasses, and a bottle opener. Go home and make some spicy meat-a-balls!

68. Spend Record Store Day at Radio-Active Records.

This April "holiday" begins with a line around the shop at 8 a.m. and ends 12 hours later with a huge party of local bands.

69. Get naked!

Check in at the Rooftop Resort, where it's clothing-optional. Couples day passes cost $40 on weekends. You can't unsee anything later, but that's the experience!

70. Camp out at Markham Park.

71. Switch the dial to pirate radio.

Of the 50-ish pirate radio stations the FCC filed claim against in the past two years, more than 30 were located in South Florida. A slow turn of your FM dial will usually result in a handful of law-breaking — and mind-expanding — broadcasts.

72. See the spiders at Secret Woods.

South Florida's alarmingly huge banana spiders (also known as the golden silk orb-weaver) weave giant, orb-shaped webs along the nature trails.

73. Go-kart at Boomers! in Dania Beach.

74. Smoke cigars and hunt cougars at Blue Martini.

Just like Al Capone used to do!

75. Catch a Splatter-Rama double feature.

Indie movie theater Cinema Paradiso sometimes shows underground horror flicks like The Toxic Avenger and Street Trash, plus other cool flicks year-round.

76. Find love at a "nerds singles mixer."

If you're coupled up already, then just browse the wares at Tate's Comics and its upstairs Bear and Bird Boutique + Gallery.

77. Cycle at the velodrome.

Velodrome racing in the 1800s was akin to NASCAR of today. Ride on the steeply banked oval track at Brian Piccolo Park — one of only three in the southeastern U.S.

78. Hang with the witches.

OK, so followers of the "Earth Religion" prefer being called "pagans" rather than "witches," but they're lots of fun, and their rituals often involve wine. See moonpathcuups.org.

79. Learn to cook iguana tacos.

The green iguana is considered a pesky invasive species in South Florida. And iguana meat is a culinary tradition in Mexico and reportedly tastes pretty great in a taco. Parboil in saltwater, followed by roasting or stewing. (Kidding! Leave those iguanas alone! We bet their meat is gross!)

80. Crash a party at Rick Ross' mansion.

Ricky Rozay may rap about the 305, but he lays his head in the 954.

81. Unwind with a spa day at a gay bathhouse.

Club Fort Lauderdale offers a state-of-the-art gym, a maze-style steam room, saunas, and private video viewing rooms, while Clubhouse II is a members-only joint with fun theme nights like Bear Night Thursdays and complimentary pizza on Leather Tuesdays.

82. Do a brown bag winetasting at d.b.a./cafe.

Wednesdays starting at 6:30, bottles of wines are poured from paper bags and diners try to guess the vintage.

83. Tailgate from 8 a.m. at the KISS Country Chili Cookoff.

This January event is the Southeast's largest country music show.

84. Jump off a diving board at the Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Complex.

With eight springboards and five platforms as high as ten meters (equal to a two-story townhouse), be sure to keep all of you inside your swimsuit.

85. Fly kites atop the hills of Vista View Park.

Yes, this park used to be a landfill. No, it does not smell. It's the highest point for miles.

86. See a show at Culture Room.

This is a music venue without a Facebook page that still manages to pack its insides every single show. This place is pure Fort La-di-dadi.

87. Run through the fountain at Hollywood Arts Park (preferably clothed).

88. Take Tri-Rail .

A daily pass on weekends is $5.

89. Ride the bull at one of the Cowboys Saloon's Ladies Nights, every Wednesday and Friday.

Chicks dig an eight-second man.

90. See a Florida Panthers hockey game at BB&T Center in Sunrise.

91. 3 a.m. breakfast at Lester's Diner on State Road 84.

Hangover food!

92. Volunteer.

Don't be a selfish jerk all the time! Visit handsonbroward.org for cool volunteer opps.

93. Have a Halloween adventure at the Howling Hammock at Birch State Park.

Spooky forest trail, pumpkin patch, and a two-mile haunted carriage ride through the park. It's basically England.

94. Prancercise!

The totally equine and sorta sexy fitness revolution that took the world by storm started in the little ol' city of Coral Springs, and it will never go out of style.

95. Boogie down at Adult Skate night Thursdays at Galaxy Skateway in Davie.

96. Grill your own beef tongue.

At Gabose, a Korean barbecue joint in Lauderhill, grill your own food over a crimson fire pit built right into your table. Use this as a jump-off point to explore scores of Jamaican, Korean, and Vietnamese eateries in the city.

This was great but I didn't see the Florida Ren Fest on there anyplace!!


Florida just looks like an old man's uncircumcised penis hanging off of America's belly, and we thought America was a girl. Cuba must be an expelled kidney stone.
