When most kids were terrified of getting stung, Dr. Leo Gosser was developing a lifelong passion for bees. As the son of a beekeeper, he has been around the buzzing little insects many consider a pest for most of his life. He believes they are indispensable contributors to our food supply and the world ecosystem.
After spending the majority of his adult life as a chemist in the pharmaceutical industry, Gosser founded the Broward Beekeepers Association with his wife, Marie, six years ago. Together, the couple have made it their goal to support bee populations and a network of more than 60 local keepers in the county, as well as the area's first community apiary.
Located on the north side of Sample Road just a couple of blocks west of 441, among big car dealerships, nondescript strip malls, and unmemorable apartment complexes, the apiary looks like little more than undeveloped land. Overgrown weeds divide the three-foot-tall, brown and white hives from the rest of the property on Mecca Farms, one of the few plots of agricultural land remaining in the county.

To the west of Interstate 95, on a parcel of land adjacent to the CSX railway in Delray Beach, sits a massive, white-roofed, red-painted structure. It is both a repurposed barn and an important piece of South Florida history. It is also the future home of Saltwater Brewery.

Revolution Live hosted a zombie walk in downtown Fort Lauderdale for people of all ages (how old is one considered in the world of the un-dead, anyway?). Food trucks were there to fuel the walk and drinks specials were offered to participants. All photos by Michele Eve.
Beer, bratwurst, and babes. This weekend marked the completion of South Florida's most authentic Oktoberfest. With over 400 volunteers, the event celebrated it's monumental 40th year at the American German Club of the Palm Beaches.
Nathaniel Rateliff, Dr. Dog and headliners The Lumineers performed at the
Sunset Cove Amphitheater Sunday night. The music must have kept the rain
and clouds at bay and the fans were treated to an evening of straight up,
pure, easy-to-listen-to new folk rock.
Broward County is known for many things: beautiful beaches, spring break, giant yachts, the largest per-capita gay community in the country, an inability to vote properly, the most hated woman on the internet in Taylor Chapman (well, a couple of months ago, at least), the nice Prancercise lady,...
