Paddle in the Pale Moonlight

Full moons get blamed for a lot of things. They fill up ER waiting rooms. They send pregnant women into labor. They bring out werewolves, crazies, and high tides. (The high-tide part is definitely true.) Now, full moons bring out the paddle boarders. BC Surf and Sport will lead a Full Moon Paddle on Friday. They will meet at 7:30 p.m. at Villas by the Sea (4510 El Mar Drive, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea) and begin the paddle at 8 p.m., wrapping up around 10:30 p.m. The event is free, and boards are available if you need one, but there are only so many to go around, so RSVP as soon as possible. If you have your own board, bring it. It is recommended that you wear a bathing suit -- or other aquatic-appropriate attire. Bring a beverage, preferably water, and a glow stick, though extra glow sticks will be available. Call 954-564-0202, or visit bcsurf.com.
Fri., Nov. 11, 7:30 p.m., 2011
KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
