Since prehistoric humans first started pondering things, we all have been fascinated by the moon. What’s it doing up there? Is it made of cheese? It makes werewolves, brings out the lunatics, and controls the tides! OK, yeah, it definitely controls the tides, but the rest was merely myth, well, until now. For there is this one creature that’s part werewolf, part lunatic, part cheese that’s brought out by the lunar light. The Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale (1 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) will host a Full Moon party from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday to round them up: the Entourage men. Yes, HBO’s answer to all those guys who watched Sex and the City and thought, “Hey, no fair!” — that’s the theme of this month’s full-moon party. If you’re a guy who has always wanted to preen on the red carpet while clinging desperately to the coattails of your one talented friend and pretending you’re then talented by association, this party’s for you! Everyone else, hey, at least they’ll all be in one place for once. There’s no cover charge to get in, and $5 valet parking will have you feeling like one of the crew. Call 954-465-2300, or visit ritzcarlton.com/fortlauderdale.

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.
