Laugh Away 2013

The start of the new year is supposed to be about bringing positive changes into one's life. Most of what you hear about resolutions has to do with physical appearance and money: eating better, working out, dressing better, earning more money, saving cash, finding a partner who looks good and has lots of cash. You know, the usual. As much as looking good and being rich go a long way in South Florida -- hey, we're known for bikinis, beaches, and a plethora of leased Ferraris, not intellectualism, down here -- neither will make you happy. They say, "Laughter is the best medicine." If you really want to turn your life around, you should probably resolve to do a bit more of that. On Saturday, it's all about bringing some laughter into the upcoming year. Comedian George Lopez is bringing his hilarious brand of racially charged humor to the big stage at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Tickets cost $50, $60, and $70. The show starts at 8 p.m.; doors open at 7. Hard Rock Live is located at 1 Seminole Way in Hollywood. Call 954-797-5531, or visit
